You really need to install an A/F gauge, Logan.
This is the one I have and the one Scotty recommends. It's very easy to install and you just need to tap into a power supply and ground. Everything else is pretty wired in a nice wire loom.

I really do tho, I need 2 things pretty bad.

1. Wideband
2. Better clutch (still stock)

I didn't notice how bad the stock one was when I was basically stock but now I can realllllllly tell

Lean code hasn't came back so I'm writing that off as some freak deal lol

However back to the clutch issue.

I've noticed that 2nd gear isn't enjoying itself when I launch hard. Also it's slipping more noticeably now, usually I can make it not as bad just from stick skill but it's beyond that lol

I've gotta be losing some power thru that, not literally losing numbers but as far as actual movement it's gotta be hurting it.

I'm reaaaaallllyyy contemplating going auto. If so what would you all recommend?

I don't think a 3650 can handle what I'm going to be putting to it

New issue. Seems like it's all revolving around the stock clutch not handling the power.

When making a pull and shifting gears in between gears it will continue revving on its own.

I'm assuming it's clutch/trans related. But am also putting the throttle position sensor as a culprit.

I'm going to check the voltage on the TPS and see if it's where it should be and if not I'll adjust it and see if that solves the issue.

I'd say it's TPS or IAC related. Better clutch couldn't hurt though.
Maybe if the IAC is getting to much or to little air between gears it's not allowing it to fall back in RPM

It's a new iac tho, if you follow the thread I replaced the iac valve and installed a restrictor plate on it to help it drop faster as well

I know you did. Maybe you should play around with the orifice size and how much air it's getting.

Raises the front end up a little more today and while had it off the ground I rolled underneath it to check for leaks and any obvious issues.

The oil pan is dented from a speed bump, which I already knew but it's not leaking so that's good.

However it almost looks as if the rear main is leaking, I didn't get all the way under to check closely but it's in that area.

Also looks like there is a very small leak on the stop bolt of the timing cover, as well as a possible power steering leak.

I've been sure to keep an eye out on the garage floor at home and there has yet to be any fluid drips.

So if it is indeed leaking, it's minimal at best. I'm heading to the strip this weekend gonna change the oil before I go probably Friday at work and will either be a happy camper Saturday night or will have to find someone with a trailer if it breaks.

Knock on wood but the engine seems very strong, so if anything brakes it will be the clutch, or maybe rearend but I'd be surprised if it did.

Wanted to catch everyone up.

I've been to the track twice in the last few weeks, I'm cutting a 1.5-1.7 60 ft, 7.7-7.9 in the 1/8 and low 12's in the 1/4. Still n/a.

I've got the car down to 2400ish lbs depending on how much fuel I've got in the tank.

On another note I've decided for sure I am auto swapping over the winter as well as selling a procharger kit i acquired and most likely going with the hellion twin kit.

Tranny wise I'm going with the 4r70w that American muscle sells along with a 3500 stall and rachet shifter.

The car is basically completely stripped inside minus the seats/dash and headliner.

I've still got windows and speakers but the interior is basically gone.

Got an appt Monday to get my full windshield tinted, as well as the inside floor and trunk area getting spray in bed liner for a SICK finish on the inside along with the Scott rod panels

Got the windshield tint done.

It's 20% on the entire thing.

It's honestly not even a major difference at night, definitely helps in the day with the sun and if the windows are up you can't see in the car hardly at all.

I think it added a little subtle touch.Click image for larger version

How strong is that compared to stock? Are you screwed in a fender bender?

As strong or better then stock it's not thin sheet metal like stock, it's essentially a roll cage but in the front end.

Not something I would recommend for a daily driver but for something that you just toy around with it is nice and at 600$ it's affordable for the quality of the piece

Wanted to pick you alls brains on an idea.

As most of you know I tucked all of my wires in the engine bay to the inner fenders.

I'm debating removing my inner fenders and making some sort of custom inner fenders so with an access hole since my fuse box is in there as well.

Any ideas as what I could use?

They don't make any for the inner fenders but I might try to fab some from sheet metal, or maybe the material used on like mud flaps

They sell sheets of nylon but I think it would be a huge deal to mold them and make them work how you'd like. Aluminum would be your best bet. You would probably have to make it in 3 pieces or more. Forward fender top and aft. Would look pretty cool riveted in there though.
