I am doing some hardware changes before I can return to tuning the car and getting it ready for the Dyno. Right now with the stock harness there are limited things available. Choices are to just run additional individual sensors and pin them to the Haltech or go with a complete custom harness in the future which would include traction control and integrate all the cars subsystems like water meth, boost control that are stand alone kits... Boost control is being done with the Greddy Profec Type S. Eventually everything will go through the Haltech so it has complete control to back off/cut boost pull timing/RPM immediately like a modern OEM ECU in the event we have problems with anything. I can still do it with the stock harness and add what I need to integrate.

Im slow so there is a time gap between thinking of what I want to do next and making it all happen.


Hoping to see some updates here soon! I'm interested to see how that last tune file I updated and sent turns out.

I forget, are you planning to run water/meth, e85, or just regular fuel? I recently set up a tune where I tied timing, boost level, afr, OMP output level and engine protection all back to ethanol content so it really because a no-user-input required tune, which it sounds like you are shooting for. Just put whatever fuel you want in and go.

If I do anything it will be to keep it as clean as possible and do some maintinece. It still has the original S01 Bridgestone tires it was delivered with.
Im tempted to do a 99íspec front end and some wheels/tires lowering springs. Things I can easily return to stock by keeping the factory parts. Otherwise no big plans other than sell it in 10 years for the deposit on my next house.

Hey Mike, I had some time to do some searching and found my self catching up on your projects. Don't forget I get first chance, (probably can't afford but you never know) if you do go to sell in 10 years or so. regardless, I hope its been all you hoped for

Long overdue update. Fourtyounce came over with 1CleanCYM (Thanks Guys) and buttoned up the CYM. There was a few hours of wrenching and it was complete. It will need a tune and some odds and ends but it’s about road ready. Need to upload Skeese’s tune to it and see how it does. Viva La CYM!
Winter is almost over. Will post when car is tuned.

This is Fake News. I have it under good authority we are headed for an early spring.

i will heat cycle it a few times, make sure all th air is out the coolant system, change the oil and plugs and have John Renna Dyno tune it at IRP. I havenít talked to the shop to get a schedule as of yet. Will make sure the car is ready before proceeding. So far so good. Will see how it drives and make sure it can make the 1 1/2 hour drive to the Dyno under its own power with the maps I have. If not I will work on doing some tuning on my own or trailer the car to IRP to get the tune sorted by John Renna.

I figure it will be completed in the month or so. But you never know with these things. I wanted to get the AC lines finished and the AC recharged but just didnít have it in me to put in the time. Work has had me working 7 days a week, my Dog died after 18 1/2 years and with everything else life throws at you, these projects take a back seat. So hopefully soon I can call it done. Any updates should be just small improvements or details to refine drivability. Things like corner balancing and alignment. AC lines, tune, Blu Tooth installation. Weather stripping replacement..
otherwise I want to close the book on this and be at a point that only oil changes put it up on the lift.

I wanted ted to do a Land Rover Defender project after this but I think Iíd rather buy a new Ford Truck and call it a day lol.

I went on a shopping spree for AC fittings to adapt my stock system to what Iíve purchased and installed as far as aftermarket condensor and drier. I have a Denso system. I decided to go with the Aeroquip Eaton EZ Clip system. I have to make a few lines and cut and convert a couple. One of them metric.
So you can get aquatinted with the EZ Clip system here is a link. These are less bulky than other soft lines. I will be doing some brazing as well to adapt the ends I need adapted. More to come...

Time to make some AC lines

R12

You will need this to lube the fittings if you plan on charging your system back up with R12 like I am.

You will need some hose cutters like these to make those nice clean cuts

Perfect

And these EZ Clip Pliers. These ran me about $60. They are made by RedDot

Dip the hose end of the fitting in the oil to lube it so it goes into the hose.

Make sure to put these clips on the hose before adding the fitting.

After installing the fitting in the hose be sure to slide the clips up and over the cage that holds them in place

Doesn’t take a lot of torque to secure the clips. You will hear them click when they are closed. You can stop squeezing now lol

It will still swivel with some effort once they clips are fastened

One hose end made.

Repeat process and you now have a new AC hose.

Fit to condensor and then to new drier.

Secured to my after market condensor and drier.

So the #8 90 won’t clear the frame rail. The condensor is very close to the frame rail here. Instead of making new custom brackets for the condensor again and pulling the V mount apart.. I ordered a short drop 90 I hope clears the frame rail. So that’s about it for now,

Nope, too close to frame rail

Sorry to hear about your pup Mike :'(

Nice work on the lines and awesome job on your drier placement. Glad you got the good stuff (R12). It's crazy how much push back I got from 'experts' concerning availability when I mention R12. The fact that it's so easy and cheap to get with an in line quiz and eBay makes me forever question guys who act like it's unobtainable.

Thatís a huge compliment coming from the All time FD Custom AC champion.
Yeah bummer about my dog. Life continues.

I think my biggest challenge will be the brazing of these #6 nipples to the small Metric line that goes to the Evap. The Nipples convert Hard lines to these EZ clip lines. I donít think EZ clip offers anything smaller than #6 for brazing. The line I am trying to convert is the 14x1.5 Denso Evap line. At first I was trying to use the entire hard line and get an adapter fitting for the Male metric to the male #6 on the drier but that wasnít going to happen. You would never be able to loosen it. It would need to be assembled out of the car and installed together and then if you tried to ever loosen it you would tighten the other side lol. Without left hand thread on one of those males fittings it wasnít going to adapt.

Will see how how it goes once I get to brazing. That one metric line is the one Iím crossing my fingers on. I may try to flare it out a bit at the end to fit the #6 brazing nipple right. I think it will work if I do that,
thanks for chiming in Lane. Great to hear from the Legend.

Mike

Brazing nipple
For those who aren’t sure what I mean. Here is a brazing nipple. Hard line brazed on one side, then nipple goes inside the soft line and then secured with clips.

I pulled this from the forum and added the conversion to the size AC fittings these are. If you have a Denso system this should help you out a little.

Nice work, and very helpful tutorial (pics are great)! I'm converting over to the RX8 condenser w drier incorporated. In my case, I'll need to connect the smaller port on the condenser to the evaporator, then the larger one to the compressor. Hoping to also stick w R12. Thinking I *might* be able to follow your lead. Again, good stuff!
