  4. nevermind, new question.... ... anyone have a walbro mounted on a return style system?
  5. its not chatter, its gear rollover like Terry said. I just had mine rebuilt, it does the same thing. Don't worry about it :drive:
  6. you're about a week late on this terry, I'll PM you in a few with my opinions, but it won't happen, ("it" being a complete buy-out)
  7. I'm running the 3L calibration, just my injectors fall short at 5000+rpm. I posted the dyno on here for you, not sure where though.
  8. Let me start with an issue I had about 5 days ago. I was driving to work at 70 mph. Everything was fine. Then the speedo stopped working (went to 0mph) and the low fuel dummy light came on. That lasted about 2 seconds and then the speedo worked again and the dummy light turned off. No other gages changed and the car behaved normal through the whole thing. That may be completely unrelated to the fuel issue In the last 2 days, I noticed that the car takes an extra few cranks on startup to fire. It idles and cruises great, but just about every time I accelerate at 1/2 throttle - WOT the car runs lean. Needless to say I babied it home trying not to go over 3000 rpm, and not over 1/2 throttle. Yesterday I went to start it, and the engine started like normal, but immediatly stalled (within 1 second). I then cranked it over for about 10 seconds and the engine wouldn't start. I let it sit for about 2 minutes and tried again, and it started, but still taking longer than normal. At that point I just moved in into my driveway, where is it sitting now. I'm assuming this is a fuel pump issue. If is was an injector issue, I think I would get a CEL misfire, and the A/F gage wouldn't read lean. I'm looking into geting a fuel pressure gage. I am not sure if its the stock fuel pump or the vortech fuel pump. Right now I think its the stock pump. The stock pump should be able to start the vehicle without excesive cranking and fuel the vehicle up to about 4000 rpm without lean conditions. If the stock pump is dead, I think the vortech pump is drawing the fuel all the way out of the tank, causing the need for longer cranking before firing, and running lean at acceleration. Am I making sense? I have worked 16 hour days for the last 9 days, and I'm burned out. I'm not sure when I could even work on it again, since I feel like I spend my whole life at work (I'm working right now too).
  9. so if you were to buy a used 3L, would it be safer to buy one with 40K+ miles? Do all the failures occur on low mile 3Ls?
  10. terry- is there any way to prevent that issue from occuring, or is it just luck of the draw? I have about 1200 miles on mine, all of which are below 4000rpm...
  11. yeah, it would be 2 years until it clears, so it might turn into insuring it for 3 months a year and storing it the rest.... right now I only insure it full coverage 6 months of the year and its not too bad....
  12. yup, I'm far too addicted to put a for sale sign in her :drive: looks like the answer is a bigger tuition loan lol...
  13. we'll see what happens in court next week.... 4 points could really kill me...
