Rip out wiring for coils and CAS and wire them straight to DB37 connector

That's what I did!

Lol. I forgot to mention that when I wiggle the wiring harness by the pax headlight, my cooling fan comes on.

I already have two coils and two injectors wired directly to the db37 for sequential. How much harder is it to ignite my fuel mixture when it's wet? My air filter gets soaked in the fender.

I've been DDing this car for awhile now. Look for the ripped up tan top and faded red paint.

A few updates:
Fixed the rainy misfire by relocating air filter to near the hydraulic master cylinders. Apparently enough water was getting into the filter to cause the misfire.

Upgraded to 1.8 brakes with ss lines, napa blank rotors, and ebc yellowstuff pads.

I think thats about it.

I'm looking to buy a new mazda 3 i grand touring hatchback as a new DD. Looking like I'm going to wait for the 2013 model to come out.

I got a full time job making the most ive ever made and also have 2 days off for school. Free time is limited, but money is not.

I've decided not to go turbo, because tires would become a problem.

You must not cruise the male bars much.

That's where I can be found.

Fuel Economy question: My eco lately has been pretty crappy, well under 200 miles per tank. Under 20MPG, driving relatively conservatively.

Currently, cruise is 15.3-5 around mid to low 30 degrees. How much of an effect would injection angle have? I've currently left it at the default that brainy had a long time ago.

Not much. Look elsewhere.

Did you get it to pass emissions? I'm guessing yes since that was months ago. Adding a dick load of intake cam angle would have helped the nox emissions, like all the advance you can get. You want to get the exhaust gases to go into the intake manifold.

Haha. That post was inspired by a post in the ramble thread. It is not cereal.

Still haven't passed emissions. Good idea on adding intake cam angle. I just acquired a new stock header and some egr tube so I will be able to plumb it in with the nb intake/ na exhaust configuration. Once I get that done, I'll just have to figure out how to control the Damn egr valve.

I am going to Wharton, I can't pass either. My licence address was ignored when I was living in CRP but ID said Houston last year.

Just ordered an FCM setup. 2040s. 550/425


No progress on the emissions front, but that's because I haven't tried again. Will try again soon, with good AFRs, and 5 degrees less ignition timing. I think I should be able to pass without EGR.
