Started car to confirm cylinders 1 and 2 are not firing (based on exhaust temp). Spent entire day playing with injectors/wiring. Tested coil packs with a SPARE spark plug, with no issue. Did compression test.

Finally, ready to quit when I test the plugs I had in the car (new, Denso, 1 step colder) and 2 of them are not sparking. WTF are the odds. Will get it back together tomorrow to confirm.

New plugs and it runs like a champ. First oil change done.

With this rebuild I did the Vibrant e-vac scavenge kit. This thing is amazing... I have vacuum on the crankcase even at idle. Glad I finally said screw it to the catch can bs.

That kit is actually exactly how I'm setting up mine. Didn't know vibrant carries such thing. Will definitely be on my to be list!

Glad to hear the car running well. I was waiting for the journal to load up and praying for good news

I still had to piece everything together, if that's what you're getting at? Bought the e-vac, one way valve, and some fittings.

Knowing how well it works, I might go back and eliminate the head-block-head pressure equalization lines.

(Hauled) the car in for an alignment the other day. Had them go with factory specs for now. When I get coilovers I'll do a performance alignment. They also told me my caster is at 8 which explains why the wheels are so far forward. I may end up buying the SuperPro replacement lower control arm since I don't want to push the Perrin PSRS back out and I really don't think my new wheels will fit without tearing stuff up.

Done with break-in and did oil change number 3 (Motul break-in 10w-40 and now Motul 300v 10w-40).

Did a drain and fill on fuel and am back on e85 (did break in on 93).

Car is in limp mode (still) and the AccessPort won't pull the code(s), so I'm waiting for a dedicated code reader to show--have never needed one before since other toys have had full code readers built into their programmers.

Found and (hopefully) fixed one of my oil leaks. Other is the turbo drain hose but that's going to have to wait since it's not leaking bad.




My 3 year anniversary was yesterday and I FINALLY made it to 10k miles...

Is it me or the car is running a bit hot? Lol.

Congrats on break in!

Strange, my needle is one notch or so lower at 190.

In any event, awesome build. Just read through everything, I love the rear rad set up you made.

Yeah, you guys are right. After restarting the car, the needle went back to normal. My gauges have been screwy since I pulled them apart....
