Anthony, great thread idea. I took mine out today for the first time in over a month. Wanted to make sure everything was in good working condition. I don't drive it very often due to the lack of funds, but it always puts a smile on my face. I do need to wash it. How it gets dirty sitting in the garage is beyond me.

Thanks, Darrin. Money is tight for me also, so I bought a beater for day-to-day duties. It's nice to see you posting on here. I've been wanting to ask about the weight lifting and New Year's resolution, but I've been too much of a puss.

I too am baffled at how it gets dirty so quickly in the garage.

Anthony

I had some NT05's mounted today and hit the track. Hopefully tomorrow I'll relocate my EGT and start using my Trinity.

RE: Today

I spent 4 hours prepping the Brembos for a red paint bath tomorrow. I probably over did it but better safe than sorry I guess. Too bad all that work won't make it a .000001th faster.

Today I relocated my EGT sensor to where it's supposed to be, in the header. It was a bit of a PITA, but it went together fairly smoothly.

I also returned my Predator to stock and loaded up the Trinity.

Funny thing is, now my Jeep isn't shifting correctly. When I leave the driveway I can manually change the gears, but after a couple hundred feet I can't. It also sounds like the drivetrain is binding. I'll install the new tcm tomorrow and see if that resolves it.

I also found a sesor that apprears to be broken.

WTF did you guys do today?

Did you try setting the gear ratio to see if it works? You will have to do this with
the new tcm. Harry had to do some updates to get it to work .

Thanks for the call, Chris.

I decided to remove the stock TCM due to it acting up, so I went ahead and installed the Mopar TCM. Things seem to be alright now. I've been having issues with limp mode and I'm hoping the stock TCM was the culprit.

Damn, my to-do list is really getting short. What the hell am I going to do over the winter now?

I performed the upshift/downshift learning again today and I'm really liking the way the new Mopar TCM is shifting. I still haven't ventured into WOT territory just yet, but I may test the waters this evening.

I also recorded a datalog using the Trinity and realize I've been living under a rock. I should have bought on of these a long time ago. Thanks for talking me into it, Harrison.

That's all.
