Default help me BOBDEC!!! :D

hey brother, just want to know if you could help me out with my log too...i know there was a previous post about a log you looked over....and your expertise are highly sought after!...i just build be a little LT1 stroker/turbo and i think it might be running a little rich/too much timing/knock is kind of out of whack....
if i may use some of your time, could you please look at my idle log....wife and i will be doing some running time and a couple "almost full throttle" pulls tomorrow, maybe that log will help out a little more then just the drive way idle log i just did......really fresh motor/clutch..

and of course, i know there is plenty of peeps out there that know what they be doing with dataloging, not like me! so please chime in!!

I'm not up on turbo setups, but I may see something obvious in your logs, specifically idle. There is a forced induction forum over here Forced Induction - CamaroZ28.Com Message Board That could also help. Can you post up logs on a shared site (one that does not require a sigh on for visitors). If not PM me and I give you an email address to send them, I will then post then up on "Dropbox" for all to see.

Default lets get this started!! :D

hell yea bro!!
alright, so plenty of things have changed since i have asked for your (and all the plenty knowledged tuners out there!!!!!!!) help.
i fought leaks, and exhaust leaks. got that taken care of. thank god. then, the day i take it home after the exhaust shop that hooked me up (discount muffles pensacola fl.) fixed me up, i started to notice a miss and stumble.....NOOOO!!!!!!!! i freaked b/c the last thing i wanted to do was chase those crazy mysterious stumbles....wow, i almost couldn't sleep last nigh b.c. i had to think hard about how i was going to tackle this problem....i did checks on the opti, ICM and coil. then, injectors, and even the pig tails...all checking out good!!!! fml... the last thing i had to do was change that spark plug wire that had touched the header during first start up. damn it, i knew the wire was bad, but just earlier today i try to start it and drive it up on ramps, and it wouldn't stay running. fml. again.
i check the headers, and every single header is HOT except number 6 and 8. 6 was the one with a bad wire, i had no idea about 8. so i went to advanced, got me a set of stockers and replaced those two wires.
JESUS! what a difference!!!!! since the first day i started the car, those two wires were being bad players and giving me bad feed back.
i was told by the tuner to run TR6's instead of my two step colder plugs..oops, my bad, and it made a difference, but the wires were on the way out. thankfully i made the correct changes and i even reset the PCM. once i started the car again with the new wires, it took a minute for the PCM to catch up ad stay at idle. then i took it to get some oil for the turkey fryer for tomorrow, and HOLLY S&***!!! WHAT a difference! i actually had a big smile on my face!!
totally cool, b/c the past week it was really running on 71/2 cylinders.
and now, the turbo finally got to feel all eight!!! damn it f-ing pulls now.
so....that i have gotten it to run right, i will finally get it dataloged and get them files up so we ALL can check them out and have a blast
i will be moving back to SA TX, and hopefully get a shop to touch my OBD1 LT1 for some fine tunning. but damn it you guys are f-ing bad ass! thanks for all the help, i hope someone gets something out of this and finds it all helpful by following the thread...follow me on youtube, and i'll get ya'll some nice vids very VERY SOON! davidbarocio1987 - YouTube
peace!
