Well, it seems, might be possible, things could have changed, terror may have eased, the possibility that the car may actually run. Robo came out today and we drove it around town and on the freeway. Not a single hickup/burp/cough or sound that should not be heard. I am still worried about it, but it actually seemed to run similar to it did before we started this nightmare a year ago. Still have the check engine light on, but Robo thinks it can be corrected now with the next tune. I will say that for the 4K plus I have in messing with this, it certainly is not a whole lot better than the base Trifecta tune. Maybe more noise, and a drone sound that I absolutely hate, but it is running. Still putting a lot of fuel thru that is not being burnt. Black soot all over the back again today.
I hope to have a better idea next weekend if a new tune comes in. Again thanks to Dave Gilbert of PAWfor working with me on this, without his help I would have the same car I arrived at the National with. Barely ran, popped and banged and hickupped every time you stepped on the gas. I must also thank Rob the Elder for getting me in touch with Dave. After today I actually look forward to driving the car the next time. It has been a very long year, with frustration at almost every level. Had actually talked about selling the car, but did not want to be concerned about what the next person would go thru.
