    Done a little more tweaking today.
    took it to my aunties, she was really happy to see it, and Mum heard it come up the drive, she is bed bound, but was very happy to hear it near.

    Made some adjustments to spark timing, also went for a longer run and data logging.

    Need to take a bit of fuel at the lower loads, but add some at the higher end of the MAP range.

    This used to be pretty even, the stroker and cam has made a bigger difference than the head cam change a long time ago. I guess it would make a bigger difference, as its quite a big change.

    Great news that the TA passed the MOT and is back on the road Dan. Sorry I was unable to help with the final reassembly last weekend due to being away. I liked your comment that your dear Mum heard it coming..awesome!
    I was gutted that I wasn't able to be there for the first start up and thanks for sending me the video clip. Looking forward to hearing if first hand up the hill in the morning!!

    The car was soo close before you went away, although I must have put in 12hours of putting the last bits on over that bank holiday. Would have been great if you were there, seeing all that work come to life. You really helped me out a lot. Never gone that far into an engine. We can say every bolt of that engine was removed, cleaned or replaced. A job well done.

    Thanks for your comments Dan. I enjoyed working on it. For me, there is a fine line between what is the most fun, driving them or working on them. But I guess many of us are like that lol

    Drove it to Hayling today for the show, all running good. Oil pressure and temperature all good. Need more tuning, but it is getting there. Very enjoyable drive. Sarah was at a potential wedding venue in Chichester which she liked, so after the show I popped along to take a look. Car ran great. Well when not under-load it doesn't know weather to slow down or accelerate, this is probably just a timing adjustment for that area of the timing map.

    Good to see you both too. Great to catch up. Glad the Trans-am is back on the road.

    I done some things to it yesterday, but didn't update the thread.

    Wires in a new wide-band guage. Camera shutter speed didn't quite catch the reading. I had an older one to this that was a bit knackered. Its much needed for tuning.

    Jacking the car up to check on everything underneath. All looks good still.

    The new jack is awesome, lifts from 70mm up to over 500mm. Have to keep an eye on the tail, as it gets close when the front is up.

    Been having some problems with my tuning software. The scanning part of it works great. Some of the editing works, but when i try to get into screens I could normally get into it bombs out. The reason for this is that i am using windows 10, which comes with the .NET 4 framework, it really requires version 2, which you can enable in windows 10 by enabling version 3. However it doesn't appear to fully work. tried to install it on the work PC and they didn't want to know either.

    So really to tune the area I want, I need a windows XP machine. The software I have is 13 years old. Its done well to last this long. Yeah i could get a cheap windows box and install it, but it handy to have on the laptop. I could do a dual boot with windows XP on a separate partition, but that may not end well. Or the other option is to buy the new version of the software which required .NET4, which works on Windows10, as I have downloaded the demo and works fine, I can edit my ECU files, although as its a demo you cannot save the files.

    This software is by HPTuners, HPTuners.com >> Performance At Your Fingertip I like the way it works, so happy to buy it again. i get 20% discount for returning my old programming pod. It has many nice interesting new features too, like RTT (Real time Tuning) also data logging analogue inputs, like additional sensors.

    The delivery time is up to 6 days. This will certainly come in very handy for the next part of tuning.
