Well, if you ever need to empty a swimming pool you'll be set.

Yanked off the driver side header to check for flatness and or, look for stripped threads in head. Def had a leak at the cylidner I thouhgt I had stripped


Then started the new MSD wires, got lent this fancy tool


Out with the old wires


New coil side in car


New wires on engine side


Header will go to a machine shop over the week and hopefully that fixes the leak at cold idle.

Slow progress towards dyno day.

Finished up the passenger side, and finally sat down to test the reistance off the wires.

This was a bad one


Ended up cutting two ends off to get readings


So, it seems I had been running around with a V6


Not sure I trust these numbers, but, if so, thats a lot of power/fuel being wasted.

That's quite the leak. Def makes mine looks like nothing. On the readings, MSD 8.5 wires should have 50 ohms of resistance per foot.

Nice we both put our cars into non running status on the same weekend.

This is the way.

And not too concerned with resistance readings, questionable meter etc. New wires are much better looking and have proper depth in coils.

Fuel pump gets swapped tmmr. Slowly crossing things off.

Yea I'd imagine two dead cylinders would immediately show up on datalog so just assuming these cylinders were on borrowed time. Happy I could finally got around to fixing the wires

And, flange is flat. Local machine shop did it for $75, which I thought wasn't terrible for flycutting it vs the ole belt sander.

Successful day back in the garage.

Tremec app measured the driveline angles just wanted to be sure I am good to go


Fuel Temp sensor stuck in regulator


And took it around town, took forever to get oil and coolant up to temp. Darn winter.

Days like today make me seriously consider how to rig up a heater core in teh car.

I think I could use the oil cooler loop, a junkyard heater core, and a stack of PC fans to get some heat in the car...

Allegedly the added volume before sensor will help dampen pressure waves from valves opening etc. So rather than run the line around the bay, its easier to just silly straw it. Also shields the sensor from the heat of exhaust gas.

Was a turbo support, we tweaked the hotside for downpipe fit and the mount didn't fit anymore. Decided SCH10 is more than beefy enough to hold up a tiny turbo.

Finally got around to finishing this side project up. ABS sensor repurposed to a speed sensor. After dyno is done, I can now play with traction control based off comparing front wheel speed to VSS signal and pulling timing based on slip.

Actually makes some good sense.

Is there the ability to setup that if the tires slip that the car will scream "Nooo, Monicaaaaaa" from the speakers?

He hasn't finished that one yet. So far, if he spins and gets out of it, it screams "Still a buster"

No it is no permanent.
