Yeah, it works great! Let me know what you need and i can build it as this one... i am just building one for the sake of building it at the moment... i didnt want to commit to any outside projects with my car not done and with me building a B20 Vtec for my daily civic.

I will have one made up with a more steep ramp too for shorter collectors on tighter manifold designs.

For the most part my manifolds will be 1.25" runners as they are good for up to 500whp.

Going to my shop tonight (5:30-10) to hopefully finish finish the wiring and get the entire exhaust built and finished.

Saturday night (7pm-3am) i hope to get the car to a place where it will start.


trying to remind myself of things that need to be changed on the AEM ems to get running...

1. control engine fans
2. add crank sensor
3. change settings for cam sensor
4. VVT something...
5. IAT cal/wiring
6. calibrate TPS
7. Idle air control settings - can someone verify 02 IAC setting is the same 94-05?


For the time i am running stock coil packs and batch fire fuel like i was last year to keep things basic. should retain the same injector and ignition phasing if i am correct...

I will switch to LS1 coils or the toyota COPS later on.... i have toyota cops but i dont know that i like them.



I hope to goodness i can have it started saturday night... that would REALLY motivate me to keep going with it

I do need them.

I just need to know what the colors are coming out of the idle air control soiloid. I have the FSM wiring diagram printed off but the ECU with motor sensors doesnt have it on it.


Looking at how i did the wiring this year im not 100% pleased with the outcome. Mainly being that if it didnt plug in i just ran new wires to the ECU ( about half dozen).

If the car runs fine and continues to do so until the winter, that will be one of the only changes over this winter season besides a full brake line tuck and forged pistons/rods

if you have the FSM, then you have the wire colors...

It's Blue/Orange on the ECU side at pin 2W. and 12v is White/Red - shared with the CAS & injectors

Spent some time working on this again today.


Managed to hack the mild steel exhaust that i built up last year to rape it of my stainless cat and muffler. It was pretty rusty after just a year. Rebuilding it with 304 stainless steel with a 3A finish (sanitary-polished in and out)

Continued work in the engine bay and am 90% done the stuff in there for this season...
Just need to bolt a few things up...


Here is a recent pic of a vband flange weld since I have dialed in my fab setup!

Thanks!

I feel comfortable enough now to make a few jigs for 4 different types of manifolds for the community.

-Bottom mount, ac+ps
-bottom mount with no restrictions
-top mount-with AC+ps
-top mount- no restrictions

Currently i am waiting for the flanges to build a bottom mount with AC/PS. The prototype will be done shortly
Using stainless flanges because we all want something to keep looking as good as our cars do. They will be thick so they dont warp.

Put in the battery today

seems everything is right from the parameter window. Stoked!

Question: i didnt have my fuel lines hooked up and i had my fuel pump switch off... but if i hit start on the key it would still pump regardless of the switch off... is this normal? Notables: AFM delete with the pins in the diagnostic box jumpered with a switch in it.

If you need stainless exhaust head flanges i have 1/2 inch 304 flanges for sale. pm me or check out my website if interested. Also, what kind of back purge setup are you running?

Thanks!

I hope to finish refinishing some bedroom furniture so i can get to the shop and finish wiring... change some sensor parameters and see if the car will sync on the AEm...

if it does... i have about 2h of other work to do before i attempt to start it! :O

I got them from this guy:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/UNIVE...Q5fAccessories

I don't see the size you need listed, but I'm sure if you just send him an email he can get it to you as it's in the picture on that ad.
