So I got the car back last week. Gas tank issues are not fixed yet as they wanted to let the tank drain down a bit more before dropping it to replace the vent valves.

In the mean time however, I did get a new cylinder 3 coil pack, new spark plugs and a new O2/AFR sensor in the up-pipe. Basically the hesitation/misfiring started with the cyl 3 coil pack (so we think). It wasn't firing properly so the cylinder was misfiring, eroded the spark plug electrode almost completely, and was spewing gas into the exhaust which threw off the AFR plug. All while causing the AFR plug to think I'm running rich and pulling fueling back, and actually making the car run lean...

So now, that is fixed and the car is driving good again, I just need to get the tank vent valves replaced. Or just keep driving the car with less than half tank

In the mean time however, I scored a sweet DAMD wheel for the car on the formerly known as Beverly Hills Copt FB page. Now its Top Shelf Waffle or something, not real sure what happened there. Either way, I won the raffle and got some sweet JDM goodness! Wifi at work is killing picture uploads, so I'll have to upload a pic later. Or you could just check out my IG, for those who havent already.

Yeah, I wasn't sure why he did it multiple times except to maybe prove hes not faking it or something.
Thanks tho, that was really exciting to win! This has been a real want for a long time but could never justify (probably like most of us).
