God damn it

You and I should never get together to build a car


Best of luck, brother.

Thanks guys... Tuning was going to be Boosted Performance Tuning - - only ended up with a base map, since I didn't get it running right (limp mode).

STi Addict... No thanks. I don't need someone else's bad luck compounding mine--world might implode.

Still haven't torn the car down... I did voluntary separation from work (going to be laying people off anyway) and will potentially have a few months off (full pay) to work on it.

That said I have been applying to new jobs and things are looking promising. If it works out, I'll have double pay checks for about 4 months, which will help get everything back together (and more).

Plans this winter include rewiring/cleaning up gauges and push button ignition. This will include wiring the gauge sensors into the factory engine harness and splicing them at the ECM (have TGV, air pump and evap sensors that I can steal wiring from).

I'll also start work on my air to water setup--cutting out the spare tire tub and sticking a radiator under the rear of the car, plus setting up tank, pump and lines... Then figuring out the air to water mounting.

Also, since I'll have time, I'd like to strip hubs, diff and other drive train components so that I can paint them proper... Disgusting to see everything rusting so badly on a car that doesn't see rain or snow.

I like what I hear!

Intake, exhaust and heads are off...again, pleasantly surprised how well the cams/buckets broke in.

Not seeing anything physically wrong (spun bearings, rod bent/broken, valves damaged/broken)....just a lot of soot/coking/not sure what the "orange" stuff is.

I've given Amsoil 2 months now, to make this right and they still haven't gotten anywhere...so it's time to start bringing this to the automotive community's attention...here are some more pictures of the garbage/destruction.







The list of parts I'm going to have to replace, is growing. Basically entirely new cooling system...again. Block and heads will be torn down so I can hot tank them.

Reacted with tap water and ate the metals it seems. Wondering if it's supposed to work with distilled water only?.

I used drinking water--specifically states not to use distilled.
