I've got a stockblock y8 on about 7psi. Had it tuned on stock injectors and ran great for a while. One day I was driving and idle/part throttle pegged rich, like 10:1. Fried the wideband it was so rich.
With a new wideband I decided to tune out the low load richness and got it ballparked, and...

Hey there guys I'm brand new here and glad that I am! Little summary of the project I'm taking on. I bought a $300 dollar 88 Civic hatch DX and had the most fun of my life using it as an offroad go cart pretty much out at some land my family owns. After 2 months of jumping, hooning, and banging...
I am about to take my car to the dyno (about 90 miles away), and I want to make sure I have everything correct for it to be tuned.
What should I check before taking it?

I just wired in my dsm 450cc injectors into my Y8 and they will not spray when the fuel pump primes. I am running a resistor box and dsm injector clips. I know that when you turn the key on the injectors should spray a tiny bit of fuel but they dont. If anyone has done this on a y8 and could...

Has anyone ever seen a setup involving the following:
Y8 head delta 272-2
z6/y7/y8 sleeved block with wiseco 10:1 flat top pistons/eagle rods and boost on e85.
How would one go about finding the power this setup could make? Obviously other than when it blows..
In a bit of a dilemma. For starters this is not the casual d16 vs b16. Please continue.
I have a y8 head delta 272-2, supertech springs and retainers.

How many miles does your Vitara build have, what size turbo, hp/torque numbers, fuel, and amount of boost you were running? What oil and weight? Remember as a daily driver will help answer my question. I am seeking the answer to find the average mileage a GOOD tuned boosted Vitara setup has...
