Thank you!

The brand is Pico and got it locally. They have 10 colors (plus black) in different gauges.

Waytek has amazing wire prices for GXL TXL and SXL wires. They also carry flame retardent loom and expandable sleeving. Honestly, I haven't found better prices anywhere else, local or internet.

do note though its all in bulk sizes. I suggest you buy 3-4 wire looms and get 1-2 electric tape colors to expand the color-possibilities. You could dish out big bucks and buy 12 colors if you want...this would be great if you can get a buddy or two to go in on it for their harnesses

So, how does the turbo not hit the block again?

Unlike a Miata, there is no frame in the way of that turbo. Would probably need some major Fae frame mods on a Miata!

I did get amazing deals on the 100ft spools. But will look on Waytek's site for some looms! Thanks for sharing.

So I have been working hard on the car. More little things than I thought and didn't want to push and make a mistake. We do have oil pressure which is good! I have some Evans Coolant on the way which should be here today or Monday. I am waiting for a Toda Racing intake cam pulley from Japan for the 99 head so I can use it with the 36-2 crank wheel (I have eliminated the CAS sensor in the back of the head based on recommendations). Fingers crossed I will have a running video next weekend (I might just run it without the cam sensor if the pulley is not here by then.)

It runs bitches!!!

Since I have not received the 99 Toda Intake cam gear yet, it's only running off of the crank 36-2 which is loosing sync at about 2800 rpm as you can see in the video. I have adjusted the gap and played a bit with R56. Next thing is checking to see if I ran the ground and 12V backwards perhaps on the VR sensor.

It actually is pretty quite for 4" exhaust and a straight through muffler. I have tuned the fuel a bit since this video and adjusted the timing so it idles pretty well at 1300 rpm, but I do need to fix the sync loss.

Oh and the turbo spins for about 45seconds after you turn the engine off. Pretty darn sweet I must say!


Enjoy the video:

I should make a post in megasquirt section "my car looses sync, help?" hahahaha

By the way is there a write up on 99 and ms3 setup. Need to double check my wiring and such. I have a feeling just switching to inverted might fix it from what I've seen in the other cars I have tuned. It was 11pm and I was up since 5am, so didn't want to take the case apart again. I guess an easier thing would be to switch the ground and 12v at the plug.

Well I see it's a freaking hall sensor. Damn it. I need some sort of a pull up resistor then. That explain why haha.

I have not checked Westfield awesome site and will go back to the shop at lunch time and fix the crank circuit with a pull up and we should be good to go at higher than 3000rpm!

Quickly stopped at the shop and followed Westfield's site and now it revs great. Will have to do some tuning and post a better video!
