I think I have a tuning issue.

I think it’s running rich.  I’m going to have to find a fuel pressure test gage and see what psi the injectors are regulated to.  The regulator is OE and I really don’t know what pressure it’s set to.  It idles cold at 1K, but once it get’s up to temp it idles at 1500.  And though it accelerates up an interstate hill, it feels like it’s running rich and it isn’t putting out 100%.  Timing is spot on, so it has to be the regulator, or something in the vacuum system.

Found out why my brake light is flashing.  There’s a switch I have to reset on the master brake cylinder.  It might be a hassle to get to it while it’s this damned cold outside.  Otherwise the brakes are working fine.

I have discovered something odd, and I think it has something to do with the fuse block, or maybe the relay board that’s attached to it.  Seems that when the car get’s in the low twenties (f), or colder, the power to the cig lighter is off, as well as the head lights not popping up or the fog lights to come on.  I don’t think it’s in the ignition key switch, the car will start and run, other lights work, radio comes on, and the horn toots.  Once it warms up a tad in the cabin, everthing will come on.  The only problem is I think the blower fan for the heat is kind of weak.  That, or I haven’t “gotten” the heating system strait in my head yet.  I need more forceful hot air when I max out the heat lever.  I’ll still end up upgrading the fuse block.  When it gets warmer.

    FYI the lighting system on a Porsche is a nightmare! Your front turn signal bulb can be bad and cause your rear brake to fuck up. Good luck

    I know what you mean. When I was getting it inspected it almost failed due to the read lights. When the headlights were up and I hit the brake, the left tail lights would go dark, and the right side dimmed. Turned out to be a pinched wire in the left light bucket, and the insulation wasn’t even broken. I got it unpinched and now the lights work fine.

    Turns out the headlight/lighter power thing was something in the ignition switch. I jiggled it a little the last time it did it and the GPS powered up.

    The brake warning light won’t go off now, and it’s not the switch in the master cylinder. Yeah, I’ve studied the wiring diagram for a while too.
