it's been a while, thought i'd update. I've been busy with work the past year along many other distractions, but i've started work on the car again. I'm currently cleaning up my garage and organizing the giant mess of parts I have. Also, I sold my proefi and went with haltech 2000 instead and got a few other goodies. Goal is to get the garage organized by end of the year and get the engine in for huge mockup work i have ahead of me.
Proefi is a rebranded ecu with shitty hacked together custom software for consumers. It really requires a licensed tuner with the super expensive OEM software to access the entire ECU and properly tune it. The Haltech software is so much better and you're able to access all the features. It's much more oriented for self tuning.
Can't find where I read it. I'll try to find it, but the proefi dealer boxes have the full tuning capability with licensed software from the OEM to develop the firmware they offer. The proefi ecu's are marketed as performance ecu's but really they are just a debugging platform for OEM engine/systems development. The proefi ecu hardware wasn't designed to be run in actual cars on the street. I didn't learn this until like a year after I bought mine and after trying the shit software I needed to get rid of it. It has some of the shittiest software i've seen. They threw together to do 80% of what most people need, but this is why you need to load firmware for your engine configuration because the software is limited. The haltech elite is developed from the ground up by them and doesn't have the crazy bugs people encounter with the proefi.
also, first time i've heard of the titan cam gears breaking. How do they break?
I'm not using my titan gears on my build anymore, ive heard and seen stories of high lift cams causing more strain on the gears and breaking them. I'm going to run stock for now, and if I need adjustable then I will try to find a set of old titans with the circular holes instead of the spokes like we have.
i'll prob get the Technico gears. I have andrew's oil pump drive shaft thrust bearing in my engine he makes some great shit. I am in the process of getting my own ridiculous CNC machine into my shoppe so stay tuned, lol.
Almost done with fixing the walls/floor in my fab room. Got another toolbox and put the stuff thats overflowing from my main box. Took a look at the cnc i'm gonna get. I'ts an early 80s Shizuoka AN-S with dynapath retrofit. I'm taking alot of it apart to fit it into my fab room.
Nothing too exciting. I got the last cabinet and a ton of schaller bins and started organizing. If anyone wanted to know, i bought the cabinets, hardware and a bunch of tools from a retired welder. My storage room is almost ready for paint.
