Alright so, those of you with Instagram already know weíre this is going....

On my lunch break yesterday I swung home and tested all 8 injectors with the noid light, and they all lit.

So I quickly pulled off the coils and bought them back to work with me. When I got a second I went over the coil harness, and turns out the driver side coils were wired wrong. I realized when I was tucking the wires under the coil brackets I messed up. Since I wired them up upsides down to hide the wires, on the bench cyl 7 was to the left and cyl 1 to the right. So when flipped back over to go install, it was backwards. How did I not do this on the pass side? Iím not sure lmao

But anyway, threw coils back on and fired up. Sounded much better and I actually got a reading from the wideband !

Backed the car out and let it idle for a bit and let it get to temp. Pulled a injector plug just to verify it was firing and indeed it was. The car idles much nicer, but it still isnít perfect. There are a few small pops and hiccups at idle.

Ended up taking it around the block. It needs an alignment in the worst way. I eased into it a tiny bit for a second, maybe got to 20% throttle and it broke up. I do feel like it would have cleared itself up if I stayed in it but I didnít want to chance anything without tuner there.

Part out thread should be up by end of day

Good lord man. You really like to live on the edge. Everyone makes a mistake with wiring so no biggie there, glad you got it figured out.

You have no idea what this tune is like and you take it for a spin. My balls would have been in my throat the whole time.

You and Smash can commiserate together regarding the coil wiring.

He is the only member that leaves nothing intact.

So I turned the car around today to be able to work on the hood fitment but mostly for the lulz.

I notice on the pass bank, each header pipe looks uniform. On the driver side, it looks like cyl 1 and 5 have been seeing a ton of heat. The header tube is blue/purple ish

Pft. You need some real problems. Come back to me when they are cherry red after a 30 sec cold start .
