it was the map sensor. took off the 3bar and installed OEM one.
Are you going to setup the 3 bar senor in FPro?

smokes so much from under the hood from new header wrap....made me nervous...
Some of these smokes awfully and I wouldn't take a deep breath in of it. Fire it up only in open fields, not in a closed or half closed garage, this is likely a inhibiting anti-fire stuff of suspicious chemical consistency. Check - after cool down - the wrap after this of it sits still tight or if anything did cunning.

I am looking forward to read it runs good :).

yes it seems the wrap shrinks down when heated up also.
it smoked for 10 minutes and it was done.
terrible smoke. I hear that its the color die that burns off.

I do plan on using the 3bar with a supercharger but that's down the road

OVERHEATS. tried to cut off plug and wire in my radiator fans..(dual aftermarket on shroud) I might have cut into the wrong plug?
which side was for radiator cooling fan? drvr side or psngr side? I have ditched AC completely.
might rig it to a switch. need to get it moved to new house

found very little info on it other than "bypass mod"
appears that it needs to be looped.
it still overheated with no thermostat and fans blasting the whole drive.
.
then got a new battery and drove it again..didn't even heat up past 1st bar of temp.......:hmmm:

so put thermostat back in. wire fans to better switch
loop small coolant line to head...refill with coolant..
safe to use k24/20 map in flashpro?
