More Test & Tune time for the KPTuned ALLMOTOR GTI! Still trying to figure out the clutch and the tubes, but the car is coming around. No changes since IMSTAR. Weight ~2450# The car came out hard with a 13.017@104.19 1.716 60′ besting the MIR times by a mile, but bogging a tiny bit. Launch 5500 slicks 10.5psi cold. Next pass new best 12.967@106.67 spinning a little 1.727 60′. Launch around 5800 slicks 11psi hot. Next pass another new best 12.833@105.48 still spinning a tiny bit 1.725 60′. Launch 5800 slicks 11psi hot. Here’s where things get goofy.. burnout, stage and launch 1.79 60′ but it breaks up before the 1-2 shift, I let off and get back in it, sputtering. Running out of gas, whoops. Try to limp it to the pits but I don’t quite make it. Luckily I bring gas, unfortunately it’s not in the car! With the wasted time of dealing with the fuel fiasco, and a few oil downs finally ready to run again. Car takes off spins the 1-2 shift, miss my 2-3 shift a bit and end up with a 13.203@105.58 best ET and trap missing a gear, and beating my best time at MIR. There ends up being a few more oil downs and a bike wreck so I pack it in early. The car still has some ET left once I get the launch where I want it. I think it has a .77-75 as it sits. Dyno results shortly!!

Took it out last night for some more seat time.. Demolished one inner cv into about 37 pieces and broke my clutch fork doing a burnout on the next pass.. Time for some real parts I think.

Megasquirt system is installed and working. Ended up breaking the clutch during a 2-3 shift while tuning. Details are at

Man! Sorry to hear about your hydro-incident! I feel you on that one (don't ask). Sick car, get'er back up to snuff!

Car went 12.90 in the dead heat of the summer, but time to move on. Motor is up for sale:
