This build is back in the right direction. Don't give up now man, once you're putting 300+ to the wheels you will realize it was all worth it.

Yea I got the race version of the clutch line.

I don't think it's going to be worth it when I blow my little 6" R&P all over the place. I need to find a 1.8 rear

Yea, but that's a given. Honestly should have been done a long time ago. I have a torsen and drive shaft, no axles or housing though. Might have a full swap in a couple of weeks.

Ok so I only got a few mins to look at the car before it got dark on me and I couldn't see anything wrong. How many grounds are there in the engine bay? 2 that go on the back of the intake mani and one that goes on the dust shield correct?

There is a ground from the head to the shelf on the driver side. There are ECU/Sensor grounds on the intake mani on the passenger side.

So nothing is happening when you turn the key at all? Have you checked your main relay? I had to replace mine a month ago.

Oh and I think that you'd get lots of motivation of posting up a pic of that manifold installed in your engine bay

I'll check the relay tonite. The car has been sitting since october so there ain't no telling what might have happened. I just got my new battery in yesterday and it's charged up so I'll get a pic up tonite of everything in the engine bay. I should have painted the the mani though it's starting to get some ugly surface rust on it. Damn for me being cheap and going mild

On the starter there is a bracket that comes off the front and bolts up where the motor mount is. Does this serve as a ground for the starter? I didn't put it on when I switched starters

Got the engine to turn over. Ended up when I took the alarm out the ignition circuit was cut and I had to put it back together. Now the engine turns over but it won't start. Pulled the #1 plug and it's firing and is getting fuel. Maybe CAS?

oh yeah by the way it's lookin good maybe one of these days I'll actually get to see it driving again. Mark hasn't been around and touching it lately has he? I hope not, you might want to stay away from him so you don't catch his juenitis! Did you hear about his newest problem? that new aeromotive pump that he got was bad so now he is on his third one and that's not counting that A1000. Unbelievable.

Yea the AFM and all is hooked up. First problem with it not turning over was when I got rid of that alarm system I forgot to sort a few open circiuts. Now I believe it's not starting because the CAS isn't adjusted right. That or maybe a COP issue. Juen hasn't been over touching the car in a while so it can't be that. Yea that poor car of his has severe aids or something it's recockulous. I've been trying to get ahold of you for like a week ****** you need to answer your damn phone

How long are you going to trust that plug in the front of the head?
