    Got back to the tuner yesterday and it was as mix of good and annoying. The good: car is coming around and all sensors were a go. Ran strong and put down 613/546 on 91 octane. The annoying: still experiencing belt slip and boost was limited to 10-11psi. Asked him to make the 91 octane...

    Repaired the cylinder head temp sensor wiring. Knock sensor wiring continuity from the sensor to the ECU checked out. Replaced the sensors while I had everything apart. Bought a Hasty bracket to address the belt slip. It moves the idler closer to the blower to increase belt wrap. Had to...

    It’s all good. Always something with these project cars. I enjoy the challenge and learning experiences. No, I haven’t moved the PS reservoir yet, but plan to use a simple bracket connected to the head to mount it right above the pump. I’ll shift my attention to it once i get these other bugs...

    Judgement Day Unable to complete the tune. The knock sensors are reading 0, coolant temp appears to be reading low and the VCT isn’t working properly. VCT is hovering around 0. EXH should retard around -15, and intake should advance to 30-40. Update: found the pigtail to the CHT sensor...

    Slacked on the updates, but the blower installation is complete. I got a basic startup tune & ran it through a few heat cycles. Seems ready to go. I have a tune scheduled in 2 days. I’m excited & nervous is an understatement. Used a Moroso coolant tank for 96-04 cars that I had modified for...

    Thank you! I agree. Once the car is mechanically sound, I plan to go back and clean some stuff up. Possibly modify and reinstall the hood pad to hide some of the ugly. IG: @does_not_listen

    I’m using a stock 1996 power steering pump. Did you find a location that cured that issue? It’s a streetcar, but I do plan to go to a few AutoX and track days. IG: @does_not_listen

    Once I tightened up the CAI, I discovered the PMAS wasn’t going to work. I received it with the blower. I think this model was designed for the GT500. It was hitting the hood in a few locations. The TB was hitting the hood as well, so I had to trim the hood support Not aesthetically...

    The Moroso ice tank made for 03/04 Cobra’s wouldn’t fit. Hellion GT sent me a message that he might have a solution. A modified tank Looked like it was going to be perfect, but the untouched side was sitting a touch to high. The front corner. Note how the coolant expansion tank angles...

    Thank you! I got the tool on Amazon. I agree the brakes on these cars are far from ideal. With the added power, I’ll be looking to upgrade soon. IG: @does_not_listen

    Mock-up The ice box looks like it’s going to be an issue, but everything else fits well. IG: @does_not_listen

    Bumper support and HX mounted Installed the IC pump in the passenger side fender. Used riv-nuts for the first time. Easy tool to use and budget friendly price for a clean install. IG: @does_not_listen

    I decided to go back to a belt driven power steering pump. The Volvo pump has variable speed motor that is driven by CANBUS. If the CANBUS signal is not provided the pump runs at roughly 70% which is not ideal while braking and turning at the same time. There’s a guy on a FB forum that claims to...

    Bought a tubular bumper support from MAF LLC, to mount the VMP HX. The fog lights mounted to the factory bumper support, so I’ll have to make some brackets to reinstall them. IG: @does_not_listen
