What kind of power is this thing making right now?
In the industry Titan is kind of a tool. Seriously. I guess he's decent at promoting himself and that always pulls haters in droves, but he's not known for being the best at managing staff or taking care of folks in the payroll department.been wondering where you've been LRI. Utube suggested Titan CNC while wasting time a while back and I watched a few of his vids. The guy has a really cool story, he went through a dip and bounced back doing very big things now, surely you've heard of him. if not check em out, he speaks fluent CNC greek too.
I would really like to see this bucket you made. very interested.Drove some more yesterday. Discovered a goof in my fuel supply setup.
I machined my own bucket. No big deal. When plumbing the line that is right next to the filler cap got mistakenly plumbed to the bucket's vent line.
That does not work, lol. I had all sorts of weird fuel pressure stuff going on. REALLY weird. Then I go to top this thing off for the first time yesterday at an actual gas station and it revealed itself. The filler spout was gargling fuel. Sounded like a mouth full of Listerine, lol.
That's when I realized my woops. Raced back home and routed correctly and now there's no more stupid chit with the fuel pressure. Basically the tank was trying to inflate like a balloon. No venting present as the gas cap seals the system.
Woops... Fortunately, no harm or damage to anything. A test drive after to verify proved all is better. Fuel psi is actually consistent now. What was happening was it'd start cold at 58psi, then climb the longer the car was running. The return fuel is much warmer than the stuff going to the engine. It would heat up the tank and make it swell. This in turn makes the fuel pressure climb and the whole thing starts to run in a circle making the issue worse and worse. I've only had the car running for relatively short periods as I've been tuning, fixing little things, etc.
I should have caught this one. Brain set on X.5 speed that day apparently.
I've all but given up on trying to post photos to this damn site. Be nice if they'd update to the 20th century. Here's some links:I would really like to see this bucket you made. very interested.
I saw that work of art in the above posts. When you said “bucket” I had imagined you made something like the stock bucket but larger and out of aluminum. Which I’ve been contemplating on doing. So you just have those pumps sitting out in the open like that in the tank? Any baffling?
Gotcha. I’m trying to decide what route I’m going with my fuel system.No baffles.
The one and only time it's been an issue for me: A month or so ago I had around a 1/8-1/4 tank in the car. I made a quick/snappy U turn. The engine stumbled and sputtered immediately after straightening the wheels back out. I was going maybe 5/10 mph. I filled it up and its never done it again. I make it a point to be 3/4 tank or fuller when I go racing. I log my fuel PSI and it's never been an issue.
Car is currently running 6.40's in the 8th. I recently discovered that the springs on the AFCO's were way, way too much. Just fixed that and I'm stepping down from a 28" tire to a 26" in hopes of getting the ass end to plant better. (Hoping the 1" reduction in rear ride height helps to get the front end up more to "step on the tire".
OH MAN! I am SO jealous! I'd love to do be able to make precision machined parts like that! Mine is a 418, but the 421 would have been so cool...especially because of Pontiac History!
