Okay here are the videos of my next to last session of the day, and the ensuing problem or hiccup or whatever you would call it. The pictures are in http://www.evoxforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=41831
but I figured with the AYC issue i would start a new thread and see if anybody else has had this.

Pay no attention to me and my passenger bitching in the video, they combined 1 & 2 so people were forgetting to point people around all day, so i was frustrated. In the second video right into turn 9 I got what felt like a sudden power loss accompanied by machine gun backfire. It jumped right back and then into turn 1 I heard what sounded like a loud backfire and the AYC system requires service light came on (around 8:05), but I could download no codes from my ap and cycling the ignition it went away. I didnt feel any difference in the car. Just a fluke? I digress.


Its hard to get a read on the speed from the video but through the NASCAR turn was about 95ish and hitting the finish line about 115. Too much fun.

Are you sure the AYC light issue isn't the 30psi overboost? If you've disabled that in your ROM then obviously it isn't.

I can't watch the video until I get home but power loss in a turn is a classic sign of fuel starvation. If you don't have a surge tank then you will experience it from time to time. Usually it'll happen right as you open up the throttle to accelerate after the apex.

God i hope it isnt over boosting, but I dont have a boost gauge, and have been watching through the ap from time to time. Who knows with how hot the car gets during that sorta stuff. Could be. I was pretty low on fuel during that run.....add surge tank to the list of stuff to buy.
