  1. A fuel pressure gauge, a scanner, a smoke machine, and one hour of a real techs time.
  2. "Self-policing"? then tech should only interpret and enforce safety, all else should be left to the formal competitor protest procedure, with a "hearing" and a published outcome. (Watching this sanction stumble into the light of the GCR,)
  3. Take the time being spent on computational fluid dynamics of brake cooling airflow, and read a rule book, any rule book. Then be prepared to argue your interpretation like a good lawyer.
  4. So Mr. Lug Nut, you are the guy who wants me to look at the wiring diagram, deduce a test plan, take my meter and go find the reason why your hydrogen refrigeration unit keeps setting a false alarm for low pressure right? And for the record I gave you very sound advice, take it to a professional, stop wasting your time and money. As for my qualifications, I am just a guy who has drank with Volta, Ohm, Ampere, Bernoulli, Reynolds, Avogadro, Mendeleev, Euclid, who do you hang out with?
  5. So I went to look at you profile, "An automotive engineering background" really? What were you in charge of vanity mirrors and glove box lids? Maybe not, both have those electronical lighty things in them now days. Maybe it was the buttons, no, no, they have the lighty things too. May be it was the seat track covers, meant to keep the loose change out of the seat rails, no,no, you don't seem to care about money either, especially small change. Lug nuts! that's it you must be the lug nut guy! I think I'll call you Lug Nut!
  6. I don't know what to say to this, other than "liar, liar, pants on fire". (nose growing, his debit card still sizzling from the last trip to the parts store). But for sure I see trans range sensors that simultaneously fail in both the park and neutral positions all the time, no maybe about it!
  7. My guess is, you should have tried a test light, with a technician attached to it! Now drive it to someone who will stop the hemorrhaging of your wallet.
  8. Do tell us the results of the three or four things I listed. What are we betting Ed?
  9. The anti smoke additive is valve seals or piston rings, if you were closer I would supply an engine. Valve seals leak under idle vacuum, rings smoke under wide open throttle.
  10. Where are you located? I have anti smoke additives for M30's. Seriously, get a good checklist, arrange tasks in order of medical necessity. You can complete 14 hr on one set of tire and brakes. Read and re read the rules about all safety items, make sure you can get through tech! Roughly the order should be brakes, rebuild all the calipers, if the brake fluid looks anything like tea replace the master/reservoir too. New stock rubber hoses ( get all six of them). There are cool (and necessary) bronze caliper mount bushings from Turner etc. Use Brembo or ATE rotors, Hawk HT10 pad. Next would be
  11. Use the stock rod, because it is in the rules? How much did the original piston and rod combo weigh? I find that when a customer shows up with all the fancy rotating/reciprocating bits, the parts are usually heavier than the originals. What has been the failure mode you are experiencing, that is indicating a change in con rod design in the first place? And if the only real difference is the weight, why would you even consider the heavier rod? Just adding a bush to the end can not contribute "41g" to the weight. So is the real question "Is it worth 41g to be able to tell everyone I have full
