Rigged up? In what way? Marrettes are used at the wire connections? (I've seen this once on a TII, btw).

Do you have a copy of the wiring harness diagram? I think you can download it on one of the sites, otherwise I could scan you a good copy, it might help out. Sometimes I get the feeling your 3rd gen is cursed

Vosko, welcome to the "dark side".

If you need a wiring diagram, you can find them on our website in PDF format. If your harness is trashed, new ones are pretty cheap and are readily available. And as always, if you've got questions, ask 'em - there's lots of help readily available here.

well engine is out. i think the harness is still usable. if not i will purchase a new one

judge has played with microtechs but he likes haltechs better.

yup i bought the car from ben in michigan. it was an adventure to say the least and the car was in MUCH worse condition than he described..... it will turn out nice but its gonna take some time.

engine is out started stripping down the engine bay so i can repaint it. right now its three different colors, white,offwhite and rust. i *COULD* have the car running in a week but i want to do it right and not have to mess with it again.

i am getting some pricing on turbo kits. i don't want anything huge like the T78 on my FD. something streetable good for 400rwhp with not alot of lag.

engine had so much carbon in it. so i dumped a whole bunch of atf in it to clean it up.

i'm going to download the wiring diagram maybe later today. i am also going to throw in my spare 1600cc secondaries in.

the goal is to get a decent turbo kit, fmic, and i need a catback too

good thing i have the FJO from my FD to tune this car

oh yeah more pix

Have you had this turbo? I've thought about going with it, but might just go with a 60-1 now for spool up.

No, but it should be sized well for what he said.



I dream of the day that I can spend money like vosko..
