to answer your question. they look like ***, but it doesn't look like solder touches anything but the wires and leads, so as long as it actually ran onto the wires and leads (which i can't tell due to the pics) they should be fine.

Will it hold? Not if your hand was shaking as badly with the iron as it was with the camera.

thats a really shitty job

dont get me wrong, the first solder job i did looked exactly like that..

anyway, like someone said, as long as it dont touch something else, it should be fine. especially with the amount of solder you put on, it should hold well. the board is fine too, it wont get damaged unless you burn a hole through it, mess up one of the routing lines (like scraping or shearing it), or break the damn thing in half.

My hands where pretty steady on the last shot guys but the cameras focus sucks. I just reinstalled it and reflashed easytherm. It fired rigth up on fuel only i will try to nail spark tommorow.

besides making sure the glob touches only what you want it too- make sure you have the right solder. if you use the wrong stuff, you may obstruct the electrical current. it happened to my friend- he got the right stuff and it worked.

now the test is: get it warm, and let it idle. notice the temp that the fans turn on. it should be at 207-210 on the MS.


also notice that you need to buy a closed element air intake temp sensor and install it.

as bad as it is, i recommend 60/40 tin/lead solder over those lead free silver solders, if you are new to soldering.

lead solder melts much quicker (IIRC, 348F?) compared to silver solder (430F) which allows you more ample time to get enough solder in there and preventing you from overheating the components.

that is, if you are using a ghetto *** pencil solder from radioshack or frys.
I have a rough time trying to melt the damn thing sometimes because impurities (burned debris) hinder the heat transfer, when i use a silver solder. even with a near dying solder tip, lead solder will melt just fine. wear a facemask of some sort when soldering; flux fumes are bad... REALLY bad.

I can't solder for **** with the new solder and an old pencil type iron. So I went out and bought a new butane powered soldering torch. Yeah baby, that ****** will melt the new solder like you can't believe.
