That's the immobilizer light which is coming on because he doesn't have a stock ECU anymore.

The immobilizer light is a flashing key.
What Im seeing is the engine light coming on at the end of his hard pull and then turning off.

I believe MegaSquirt can use the CEL light as a warning for several different factors.

That's the knock sensor. My tuner spent 3 weeks driving and logging the car and never saw knock. The sensor is just a bit sensitive and is picking up operating noise at those RPM, we have to tweak the settings for it. He said my timing is pretty conservative and fuel is 11-11.5 to redline.

When I take it back to him for the boost by gear we will fix the sensitivity of it. Oil change saturday. Expecting to see very little to no debris on the magnetic drain plug.

On the MS, you can use the CEL to indicate different factors. Quick flashing CEL is knock usually. Longer CEL that stays on for a period of time is usually that your coolant temp is past your designated threshold. You can also set it up for like oil temp/pressure as well.

It usually comes on at 5500RPM but at certain loads. I find that sometimes it comes on as I am letting off the gas. I will do another log here on Saturday and send it to my tuner, but he monitored everything and put the car through it's paces, I'm sure if there was a possible concern he would have advised me, especially since he knows everything the car has been through and how long it took to put together. He did tell me to take a log just to be sure, but not to worry about leaning on the car and to enjoy it.

Your motor/turbo are vastly different than mine. But I'll tell you my car never sees knock. My amateur tuning and I've never created a knock event. I'm not sure the stock knock sensors are consistent remotely on these cars.

Can you explain the last sentence plz? I am sure at this point our threshold isn't set the same and my motor being forged is louder either way than yours just cause of the looser clearances.

I will say for what its worth my engine is forged as well and thus far I have not needed to recalibrate the Hydra knock sensor.
Which frankly im very surprised.

Well we did a log, see timing get pulled 2.5* as soon as CEL comes on, then another 2.5*, and then over the next 1000rpm it brings the timing back .5* at a time.

Sent the log to Ken, he can tell if its bad knock or just the sensor needs to be messed with.

Good news, he looked at the log and determined the noise in increasing gradually, not suddenly, so it's not knock. We need to get the sensitivity of the sensor correct. All is  thumup

So currently just sitting around for the next few months and creating a wish-list and/or buying parts. I want to get some kind of seat but I'm oddly proportioned.

HDHCDD rollbar.
I'm 5'11"
I have a 32-33" in-seam and waist
Stocks steering wheel (would be willing to change to 350mm or 330mm)
Wide shoulders

What kind of seat can I get that would fit? I'm just banking on someone here being built like me and giving suggestions. I do love the Elise/Exige seats but can't find them anywhere. I did get a ride in an Elise a few years back and I don't remember the seats being bad, though getting in and out was a chore, especially for my friend's 60/yo dad  Grin

Other things, address Intake Manifold and more importantly Throttle Body, re-do some FMIC piping, really really really want some RevLimiter gauges, and need to run back to Ken to tweak the knock sensor sensitivity. I also want to do some stuff with my interior, not sure what yet, but maybe getting some of the trim wrapped or hydrodipped.
