What did you feed your GS today?

All past and preset little snacks your baby had. Cars you have taken on in rich dummy terms. 😂🤣 Unfortunately and nothing big to boast about but today my GS ate my father's 2001 Ford F-150. He asked for it. He plans to race me in his latest car. A 97 Jetta 2.0 with a cat back exhaust. If he fixes the worned out manual transmission that is.

My most recent notable was a 2017 Focus RS, and before that, 2010 Corvette. I haven't been to the track yet this year.

🤯🤯🤯 im over here beating grannies (black lady, old fashioned with their little hats and veil over their face.) in Galants that are too stuborn to let you pass and cocky teens with their hat to the side with their right arm held out far, gripping the top middle of the steering wheel, body leaning left towards their window looking like they're ready to turn left rather than drive straight in a 2.5 Altima and your beating vettes... 😂🤣 umm... how about we trade cars? Lol!

Haha, some time and money in, and you'd have a quick one too.

I'm kinda stuck at the moment until I can get a higher flowing fuel situation.

Higher flowing fuel situation? You mentioned better fuel pumps. Is that what is limiting you?

Yeah. I'm stuck around 400whp right now at 16psi boost. I couldn't get my walbro 450 or a 525 to fit in the OEM basket, so I either will need to bite the bullet, go full return, and drop about $500 on that, or find a DW300c pump that'll drop in. Even running with NPT tees instead of the OEM center section I couldn't get it to work. I think it's because our internal regulator needs to be sitting properly, and can't just have a line run to it.

I found a DW300 (not compact) for $50 I may try out. It's 10mm longer, but I have extra gaskets, so I can raise the fuel hat for extra space.

A fuel pump that runs E85. Well you have an idea on how to tackle your dilema. I dnt even know what the inside of the fuel tank looks like but i did watch a video of a shop tearing the inside out of a civic to reach the fuel pump. Is that the case for our cars? Also will a better flowing pump give my NA engine performance or can i expect it to be the same as with the WRX injectors?

A higher flowing pump won’t help a non boosted eclipse unless your OG pump is worn out or clogged up with gunk, and the old screens are clogged

So technically an upgraded pump would be better just because it’s new

But a new OEM denso pump is adequate for a non boosted application on these cars for sure no questions asked even with bolt ons

You won't gain power, as the stock pump is able to hold full fuel pressure NA even at full throttle. Adding extra fuel without adding more air will result in loss of power, as the fuel won't all be burned, and what does burn will burn slower

I do have a couple Walbro 525 pumps that will be used when I put in the other turbo. They'll be fine for 1200whp or more on E85

I see so upgrading is a dead end when NA but it wont hurt to replace it just to keep the flow steady and with no problems.

It's also a waste of money unless you have fuel pressure issues from a dying stock pump, which is very very very rare. You could put that money into a performance part that will add power, handing, predictability, etc, or a maintenance item that'll reduce risks of issues, or restore handling/power

On another note, my father just revved his 97 Jetta and it has like a stock limiter that held at 6,000rpm's and when he let off the exhaust popped beautifully. Im wondering if our GS has that too. If i want my exhaust to pop or crackle i rev up to 3,000 then let off and it pops mildly. My father's was loud. Im mostly about that. Exhaust popping, loud noise with a nice note but with abit of power to not fall in the "RICE" category. So abit of light and help would be greatly appreciated.

Not with stock timing. It adds a ton of timing advance off throttle, and won't pop in any significant way. I can get you significant pops if you get a tune

Yeah the stock fuel pump shouldn’t die unless you run the car out of gas and it sucks a bunch of air and overheats or if the filter screens are so clogged that the pump starved for fuel and it burns out that way

Casually driven Jap cars with Denso fuel pumps like ours run 250k miles plus on stock fuel pumps with no issues, replacing the filter screens is a good idea though eventually, in fact I think I need to change my filter screens

Yeah that tactrix cable is eluding me at the moment due to the situation we're all in. Speaking of restoring handling. What could make my steering wheel shake 63-68mph?

When was an alignment done last?

Also jack up the car get a few wheels off the ground and then grab the top and bottom and each side and give the wheels some aggressive shakes back and forth and see how much play and wiggle there is, there shouldn't be any at all

The shop that does an alignment will put it on a rack and tell you what needs to be replaced first as far as suspension components before doing an alignment

The most common reasons to least, that come to mind right now:
-Lost a wheel weight (balance)
-Uneven tire wear from worn suspension components or bad alignment (eg, cupping)
-Poor toe alignment (causes tires to skip as you speed up, but may hit a resonance you don't feel or turn to a full slide)
-Rim full of debris, like mud, snow, or ice (probably not snow or ice this time of year)
-Damaged tire belts possibly while hitting a bump (balance)
-Dented a rim on a bump (balance and shape)
-Badly curbed rim that is out of balance (huge chunks missing, you'd notice a half oz of aluminum missing)
-Bent an axle rock crawling (should consider bigger tires and some more lift if so)
-So much sick downforce that you're scraping on the ground (bro science)
-Aliens (*tinfoil hat intensifies*)
-Localized earthquakes (Maybe)
