<SNIP>been up and under my car all day and now I remember why I'm not a mechanic.<SNIP> I dread that.
People stop by the garage all the time... trying to figure out if I can do this, or that. Hell, if I were a mechanic I would have been done ten years ago... and yes, I also dread those jobs. My fuel filter banjo fitting is waiting for me to get back in there and replace the copper washers that were special ordered. There's always something... sore tonight? lol

I got everything put back together except for the exhaust and I still have to fix the leaky -8 fuel line. Once I get that put back together I can start trying to wire it in so my second pump only comes on at wot once I reach a certain boost pressure. Anyone have suggestions on this? I don’t need it till about 24 psi. I will probably have it come on about 19-20 so that I know I have plenty of fuel at 24 and beyond. This 6466 spools up sooo fast.

Not sore at all. I build decks for a living so even at 49 I’m in better shape than a lot of people. I’m going to be out of town in Atl for the next two weeks so I won’t get much done. I am coming home on weekends so maybe I’ll feel like finishing it up. I feel like I’m so close to being done.

and to boot, today, cleaning up, organizing the garage, I found the two brass washers for the fuel filter that I ordered a long time ago... so long that I ordered them again and got them last week. Guess the memory is going, too. This garage is going to be like a modern day barn find for someone if I don't get her done soon.

70+ and still into cars? You should have retired to the Cadillac by now...…...lol
I am old compared to a lot of guys on here buy you sir have me beat. I still feel young and stay as active as possible. I love golf and racquetball more than sitting on the couch. I guess that helps me stay young at heart. I also love racing at the track and on the streets. I know I'll get flamed for that, but I don't pretend or lie and say I don't. I have a lot of regard for human life and don't race on busy highways or roads. I live in one of the most rural areas in Alabama so it's not like our roads are equivalent to those in big cities.

What ecu are you running? I would think it would be as simple as setting up a table that has a target boost pressure that controls a ground output from the ecu once you reach a specified manifold pressure. Almost like a duty cycle map but very binary.

I have the Megasquirt MS3pro. It will do what I want it to do, I've just got to get it wired in and then tuned.

JK, About the only vice I have is playing poker and gambling on the golf course.
