Ebay has all lol. Can you still locate a compressor that will bolt up?

Fresh coat of clear on the wing


The passenger fender needs to be replaced. The indicator will not snap in because of the fill that was needed. The 01 front bumper doesn't come with the clips on the back side that snap on to the fender, didn't realize they mounted up differently





It was WAY too hot to dick around with bolting everything up properly. I have some garage star brackets standing by to bolt on the hard top, ebay GV front lip and the wing to install.

The paint guy also "lost" the side skirts so I found them when I went to pick up the other stuff. He will have the skirts done during the week so I can sort them out next weekend.

So right after this video an injector stuck open (apologies for the vertical video). It got dark quickly so I just left it there for now.

To do list
buy injectors
extract broken latch bolts from hard top
weld up the intake
wire up the new head lights
figure out why the windows wont work

I need to trim the underside of the hood some more to clear the hot pipe so everything lines up properly.

A friend has some ID1000s I'm going to try after I tone out the wiring harness to make sure there are no shorts on that injector circuit

RIP injector driver #4. As soon as i turn the key to on injector number 4 gets 12v. The injector wires have no continuity so it's definitely not a short any more. I'll be converting it to batch fire tomorrow and breaking this motor.

Batch fire was a success. Tune needs a metric ton of work but it runs and drives.

Boost cut was set to 4kpa and it hit's that in part throttle in 2nd gear at around 3k. I was worried that the TD05 would be laggy but it appears that's not the case. This car was bananas at 190 virtual whp on the 1.6 it's shaping up to be magnitudes faster than **** off a shovel

ditched the edfc since it only came on when it felt like. With everything adjusted to full soft the road manners are much improved. I'll see how it handles once I take it out onto the main road.
