    hey guys

    no real progress on my end, been really busy w work

    battery was dying when I was up at MaxPsi, replaced w a new OEM one and that didnt so any good. I know found that my MAF is leaking around the housing pretty bad. Its possible that could be causing some weird issues but i'm not too confident.

    time has been tough so i'll get back cracking on it soon I hope.

    I'll keep updated as I find more.

    Hmmmm...


    Im sure you checked your plugs, are they a step too hot?

    How about any vacuum leaks, exhaust leaks? I dunno, just thinking out loud.

    Hmmm...

    Have you taken off the valve cover to inspect what the valvetrain looks like? You can tell if there is float. Check the valve seats, if they are all banged up you have too soft a spring which could be causing the float.

    Cant think of anything else.
    Just read the thread for the first time. Awesome e36 man. I agree with all of Sticky's lusting over it's great looks! Also amazing work on your own. I wish I had a big garage and could tackle something like this.

    Just a thought, but I would try running a 50/50 meth/water mix and see how that affects knock. The water will absorb a lot of heat and should help prevent knock by keeping your cylinder temperatures down a bit to prevent detonation. If that does help, you can incrementally bump up the mix to find the ideal ratio for max power but I would definitely add water in your situation.
