I fill it with a couple quarts and there's an air chuck under the microfiber, so I can hook the air compressor right up to it
Sounds kinky...

I resisted the urge to make a similar comment. Thank you for giving m hope that I'm not a deviant.

A surprising amount of work, yet. Changed up enough things that not everything is going back perfectly. However this is where it'll have to sit for a while.

Ordered a set of Enkei PF01 EVO's (black, 18x9.5 +45) last month and they won't be here until June. Found MPSS's on sale so I picked up a set of 275/35s. Fenders are rolled and ready....

Started the car today, just to be sure... A couple cranks and it was good to go. Have a lot if work to do, yet.

Finally got exhaust finished up. Hopefully dropping it off tomorrow to be powdercoated. Not TIG quality but I don't care as long as it works and holds up.

Saggy butt made worse with new LCA. Guess coilovers are next.



Finished the car up and got the cooling system bled. Took it out for a drive and it's obvious the alignment is horrible. Got about 3 miles on it when it started bucking and I lost a cylinder or two (similar to last year). No codes. Turns over no problem. Haven't done anything with it since. Hoping its an injector or plug/coil. Ordered a new compression tester and a leak down tester (just in case).

I highly doubt its mechanical--and it's different than last time. Last year it would barely turn over and was knocking. This time it's just not firing a cylinder. No smoke which is why I want to say there's no fuel making it to whichever cylinder. I had to fix some injector connectors--hoping its something that simple.

I hope it's just a dirty connector or something.
