Too many Regals
- Jul 28, 2006
Awesome job with a Te60.Just wonder if your knock at 5600 rpm was a shift.Also were you running just pump gas and alky and is the shortblock forged?If I remember correctly, it was approximately 5500 through the traps. I agree with you that there is more left in this thing even in the first half. I did get a single knock count at 5600+ rpm that was about 1.3 degrees, at which point I increased the alcohol flow slightly. Boost was creeping to 22 towards the end of the run, fuel pressure rose accordingly. I will see what screenshots I can come up with from the PL file. I need to verify actual timing as well.
anything else you would like to see?
The shift noise is like having a Vigilante 5 disc, the discs rattle and the knock detector lights off. You might check how tight your knock sensor is. The alky may just puddle with 40 deg temps which is bad news.The car knocks every shift when I am cruising around town... gotta figure that out still. shifts firm though with the new converter. It very well could be the knock problem I am seeing near the shift.
Yes, this was run on pump 93 and alky. had about 12 gallons in the tank. The shortblock is not forged. When I had the heads off I took a pic of the pistons, and they look to be .030 over, but cannot confirm they are forged. They look to be cast. Never had the RA out of the block since I have owned it. previous owner rebuilt it, and I went through it again in the car.
I was hesitant to put more alky into it with the cold temps we had yesterday (45-48°F)
I would assume earlier in the season they would hassle you more about the cage deal... this late in the season with so few people still out they are a little more lax. You can always save the runs for RSD night and generally get as many runs in as you want without fear. Hell, there are cars out there going 9 or less with no cage.
My car will likely get a 6 point in the near future.
