Yeah I'm hopefull but not optimistic, lol. I was getting a much better linear resistance reading after the fix, but only a road test will tell for sure. I just need it to last a few more races...

Making upgrades and changing classes in the middle of the season won't cause problems..?

Yeah, I'll lose all my points up to that point. I'll just have to see how my season is going at that point. I'm not sure I'll be able to do a full season at this point with work and the baby, and even missing one event can pit you out of the points race.

Gotcha - I definitely understand your priorities. I just wanted to make sure you had considered how the change in class would affect your points.

Yeah, I'm maxed out for points in thus class so any change would bump me. Has to happen eventually, lol.

Woot! Installed my old 'fixed' AFM and it works like a charm! I'm setting up a dyno session for next week sometime. If I can I'll swap the chips and get numbers on both for shits and giggles.

I've done that to a couple of E30 AFMs and a hell of a lot of Porsche & Toyota ones. Glad it worked for you!

Awesome job with that AFM! I'll probably add that as a preventative cleaning for the future. I'll go ahead and keep the boxed up one for anyone that ends up needing it :D

Well, haven't really touched the e30 in months, but I pulled it out and cleaned it up yesterday for a car show/birthday party for my neighbor. Jason seems o be a little too comfortable behind the wheel, lol.

Picked up a full NOS 'IS' body kit, picking it up this weekend. I'll snap some pics when I get it. After 8 years I can finally ditch the budget junkyard kit, woo!
