I was kidding- you've got koto's car to play with anyway. But I figured once that's done we could shoot some vids of the cars rolling - I got one of those cheapie cams.

Dropped? Meaning one's coming my way or..? I just borrowed a friend's laptop, and just dl'd and installed the software from DIY!

I'm running through last minute trying to tie up the loose ends before heading out. I'll need to stop somewhere and get some vacuum line for the MAP, also, what sort of filter can I use for the idle valve? I'm thinking one of those little foam jobs for a carb on a small-displacement engine?

oh, your throttle pipe doesn't have a joint for it?

I've got your power supply here at my house. Not that you'll see this before you get here anyway.

WTF did you guys go? At least expected Ben to show up. We had 11 cars this time. Not bad.

My car wasn't running so well, and the idea of tinkering on the side of the road in the rain didn't make me warm and fuzzy inside. Hopefully weather is better next time.

Got a late start on Koto's car and it just to longer than expected (I'll let Koto fill in the details). But it started up perfectly a little after 8pm. When I left they were talking about installing injectors.

The rain cost us a lot of time, and then Koto's MS was not very happy. Eventually, it all did come together though.

See you bitches next time I suppose.

Yup, we didn't expect to run into problems flashing the firmware in, plus dealing with vista = . For the longest time we sat in disbelief at the fact that there was NO fuel pump and NO spark (despite jumping the FP in the diag, which M2CC discovered we did wrong later), and the ignitors were getting crazy hot! So after Ben convinced us to give loading the firmware a third chance... viola! It got fuel and spark and wanted to start, but timing was off. Ben plugged in a WAG and it fired up! Then you know, timing, injectors, yada yada, went for a drive, ended up leaving around what, 3 or 4? I'm sure I must've left something out..

Thanks a BUNCH to Ben and M2cupcar for their help and combined subject matter expertise, and to foundsoul for the advice over the phone!

Sure thing! Ben and M2 are wizards btw, the old VC breather filter became the IAC filter, and the old coldside pipe became my new intake..



I redid a couple things, I'll take a pic later. New filter (had one), heatshielding on breather hose, some insulation on the AFM plug, etc.
