blogs on the 3L Turbo
the issue with the Se isn't as bad as I was thinking it was. I think its just running very rich. As noted last night when it was pegging the a/f guage which is set to display a max of 10:1 a/f. otherwise it seems to be running very strong at 12 psi. in the cool air last night it was hitting 13 psi. so its either making more power or the falkens don't grip as well in the cooler weather as it would very easily spin the wheels. man do the rpms shoot up fast when that happens. I also swapped the
Well most are aware of the Spec clutch failure that I had. Well that is behind me and I now have 600 miles on my Clutchnet clutch setup. So far so good.
I also proceeded to up the boost from 8 to 12 psi. That is something else. It finally want to just break the wheels free like all the time. Fuel and egts are good.
now the problem, it appears that the engine is done. I was observing a high rpm/load/throttle/boost hessitation or miss. So I decided to pull the

I finally went with a 6 puck clutch kit from Clutchnet. Its showing up today . Plan is to check the flywheel for flatness tonight and start the install tomorrow.
I need to drive this car again, getting alittle punchy with the other cars, I want boost
well no updates on the contour. its been apart since the beginning of the month
I am close to figuring out what to do about a clutch. Should have some definative answers as why the Spec disk failed. Other then that I might still try a clutchnet disk and pressure plate.
I think that I might go back to stock again to break a new clutch in. I don't want to risk putting to much power through a new clutch with the turbo. at this point it would only take swapping
