I recognize that JK, it belonged to a guy named Cary in TX. Cary picked up his JK in Vegas and drove to Moab, ran it through several trails and had a blast. He drove it back to Texas and loved his JK. Cary wrote me he needed to sell his JK, house and other vehicles due financial reasons but I did not know it went to a dealer. That was a good solid build I put some miles on it as did Cary. There may be some upgrades available for that JK since it's been a while, John at OP or we can help you with it. If it's running lean it could be an air leak or MAF calibration as noted. When it left here it had a stock L96 6.0 installed with the stock calibration. If the engine was modded after that I don't know but it does look like a pretty standard install.
Whew! Yes Sir!
I can tell it's been well taken care of. I'm trying to keep up with what he started! Almost like it came off the showroom floor as it is. Sorry to hear that he had to get rid of it over financial reasons. From what the dealer said, he spent a little on his new purchase with upgrades OTD.
Speaking of upgrades. I'll be calling John to make an appointment this week.
Thank you for the engine spec. Was able to do some research after chasing amp draw issue.
Meter now reads .2 on the 200m setting after Jeep goes to sleep!
As for the lean condition. Just got done re-torquing the intake manifold.
Found the torque sequence.
Intake Manifold Bolts (First Pass in Sequence) 44lbin
Intake Manifold Bolts (Final Pass in Sequence) 89lbin
Checking the first pass setting, only the 2 rear 8-9 were to 44lbin. So I'm now assuming that was my lean condition. With both passes completed, I'm sure more than 1 were at least a full turn loose.
-Couple of questions you may have the answer to.
-Any idea what could of led to the P0230 Fuel Pump Primary Circuit Malfunction? It hasn't returned, but it's been on my mind. Is it the stock JK fuel pump?
-Where and what type of fuel filter do y'all use? Sorry, new to this platform and haven't really looked for it. If the lean condition reappears it will be the next thing on my list before I take it to John. Don't want him to have worry about these gremlins, so he can focus on upgrades!
-Is there any adjustment on the gas pedal resistance? Initial pressure is pretty stiff, then it travels easily. Had a guy on the way home in Silverado thinking I was launching on him, so he gassed it. I couldn't resist... Pulled right around him and let off at the posted 55 speed limit. He slowed down and wanted a rematch as I kept it at 55. I'll lube the pivots and see if that helps.
-Still haven't heard from Cary. Does Motech keep any build details? Many unknowns on the rig, but I'm sure if he doesn't get with me I'll figure it out one way or anther.
Thanks for your support Robbie.
