      Fixed my massive vacuum leak. Turned out that the OEM part is not available.

      So, we went down to the local parts store, and found a generic Goodyear heater hose (part # 63068 in case anybody needs it) and installed it this evening in the pouring rain.

      She purrs like a great big kitty now.

      Furhter Cannibalized an 80 to make my 90 even better! Pulled the washer fluid lines since mine was busted on the passenger side, pulled the entire line and installed the new one only to find that I could have simply taken the passenger side line out of the T valve versus getting pissed in the freezing cold last night.

      Also pulled the second headlight as a spare, and tried to repair my cruise control...which still isnt working, but hey I have a good cruise diaphragm now!

      fired it back up with new manifold and piping and AWIC. in the interim i made a mess of things, changed some things, and redid the whole front end basically.

      will dyno it as it sits for some data on the IM, then put the new turbo on it, dyno it, and put the dog-box together for it.

      not too shabby for an email flash tune, i think, not that i or anyone involved with this knows anything about cars at all.

      i just gathered a couple more parts for the car.... little metal round thingys. and some tubey like thingys. when the goal is to be the quickest/fastest on the planet, well then some things need to be special.

      was gonna make my own tubey dealies but sometimes its easier to buy built than build oneself. and they were a good deal, now to save up some money (read: hide it from the wifey) for another set.

      but i think i am just going to move forward with the Wavetrac front diff order now, and who cares what wifey says about it!

      and thats a bummer Dave.... BTDT with a window block.... it aint no fun.

      Fixed my cruise control switch. A couple months ago after I got the linkage and vacuum portions of the cruise system squared away the switch decided to stop working. I found a spare at the junkyard, but after following the 20v alternative diagnosis it appeared to be bad too. Unfortunately the diagnosis instructions kept mentioning having to replace the wiring, so I cut apart the wiring while disassembling my spare without thinking only to find that testing the leads right at the switch was giving me the same symptoms.

      Fast forward to today and I've got the steering wheel off to replace it with a less used one and I decide to continue working on the cruise. While testing continuity again it hits me that the switch itself has the issue and not the wiring, so I tore my spare down further to find the circuit board to be corroded. After a quick scrub with the wire brush all tests are positive, so I repeated the repair on my original switch, without cutting the wires, and all circuits are reading correctly. I'm confident tomorrow my test drive will be successful. With how much I drive I will be extremely grateful to have cruise back.

      went to dyno tonight on the 63mm turbo **i always thought it was 66mm but such is not the case after i measured i up** (going away after tonight) on the 1.8T (Integrated Engineering 2.0L stroker) 20v 4cyl motor.

      running 40 psi on E-85.

      uncorrected numbers are 742 AWHP and 572 tq.
      corrected numbers are 716 AWHP and 552 tq.

      someone has a lot of catching up to do!!!!!! and thank heavens that email flash tuning exists... i wouldnt know where i would be if otherwise!

      So mine power steering pump failed, cracked housing. I could not justified the price for ZF p.s. Pump. And that I converted to regular brake booster. I hated hydraulic brake system anyways. anyway, I retro fitted 10v p.s. Pump from 90q. It was free. I will use my skills to make it work. With 2 hrs modify and spacer and drilling into bracket and longer bolts. No more leaks.

      so i was bored so we made something neat.

      i had a Euro plate tub but i sent it to my good friend Chris (varia) as it was one of the final pieces he needed to complete his S2 clone. and he sent me his US spec rear tub in return.

      rear license plate delete plate? because RACECAR!


      also, while i was being bored, i decided to run the car up on the new lift, and practice some clutchless shifts with the new Dogbox trans. no boost piping on the car, so no boost just free flowing.

      Finally made some time to install the 034 injectors I picked up earlier this year. I really should have done a before and after drive, but jumped right in not having driven the car in a week or so. Still the new injectors feel really smooth both cruising around and full throttle. As I work out some of the other small issues I want to before driving the car regularly again I'll have to report back.

      Only had 2 of 5 broken Hitachi injectors, but 2 of the good ones look like they've been replaced since the car hit the street 245k miles ago. Not bad all considering. If anyone wants a number of the good injectors shoot me an offer.



      I noticed I'm in need of a new cylinder 3 plug wire and the rubber mounts for the pressure regulator were sheared off. If anyone has any leads for those items it would be much appreciated.

      Well yesterday I finaly got the 80q on the lift. Took care of a lot of little things it needed. Fixed the exhaust(resonator blew out), welded the downpipe, got all my heatshields held back up, put on my g60s, repaired the rear brake line from master, replaced 2 of the tires, and ballanced the other 2. Now im going to install my crank sunroof panel and replace the gromets in the trunk for the wreing. Next weekend it will be time to pull out the tie rods and "unfreeze" them so I can get it aligned.

      Finaly feel like I have done something to her

      Let's see.. I pulled the passenger knuckle, the driveshaft, rear differential bushing mount, and the shift linkage. I'll be pressing out bearings and bushings this week and hopefully getting it all back together next week.
