Actually I did, everything is still the same as all the circuits are now inside the ms enclosure. I had a parallel boomslang harness from when I was running ms-1. I cut it up and converted it into a standalone harness, and the only external wires are lc-1 and ebc. I just got my car running as it needed a fuel pump, but it looks like I may still have a bad coil. I'm going to wrench some more tonight, so hopefully I'll have more news.

Figure out the coil issue? I've got a few coils of each, both OEM and toyota. Hopefully it's just bad wiring.

Nope. Don't remember at all, except, I thought I'd sold one and was wondering if I still had a spare for you. :-)

So where's the low bat cap/light? :-)

Videos for sure!!

I haven't tried the cap yet.

So I got a new battery, got a new alternator, got a new 80amp main fuse from the dealer. Battery is not charging. WTF!

Did you solder on that alternator jumper wire on the bottom of the board?

How is this going now? From emails, you'd mentioned it wasn't working, but then you'd left off some white wire (with the OEM ecu) and then it worked for a while?

Perhaps the lead fell off the alternator? I had that happen once.

Yes the alt worked for about 30 mins and then stopped charging. Yeah left off the white wire at the fuse box. Haven't had time to investigate Sunday and yesterday. I am going to look at it tonight when I get home.

Lead fell off the alternator? Okay...I'll check that too.

Try not to feel too bad. I've had the same issue with my motorcycle, bought so many used/cheap pumps I could have bought a factory one at full price and saved quite a bit of money - let alone time and being stranded, etc.

Better luck this time around.
