    This morning I checked the ignition timing. The VR sensor is correctly positioned 6 teeth before TDC, and a timing gun is flashing in roughly the right place (I canít be any more accurate there...

    I was never really sure what a ground loop was (but Iíve heard the term, and recall that it causes issues in old analog video recording tech, but thatís about it), but I admit that if Josh hadnít set...

    Crank sensor seemed to be in the right place at a glance, but I'll check it again next weekend to be sure. Easy to do. I'd be surprised if I knocked it, but it would be really, really nice if that...

    And here is the video: https://youtu.be/kvTrS85jO20

    And the log (this is not from the attempt in the video): 57755

    And the current tune: 57754. Mostly I reset the VE table from my idle tests...

    I think that the wiring problem was a loose ground. I spent a couple of hours today tracking that down, eventually noticing that the MS was rebooting. I redid the ground wires on the engine side of...

    Ok, that seems unlikely then. I mean, it ran last weekend, save for those two cylinders that Iís swapped the coils on. I was getting afterfire from that.

    This time I was noticing an occasional...

    Iíll go through the wire again, but Iíve labeled each so I know which one goes to which coil ó Iím sure the coils are on the right plugs.

    When I lengthened the injector wires, I cut and soldered...

    Not having much luck today. I did a few things in preparation for ignition:

    - Replaced that coolant hose that was leaking with the correct sized hose. Of course, now thereís a pinhole leak in the...

    Thanks. I guess you can send me the muffler back. :) If you still have it around, that is. I'm kind of curious how it compares to the one I built, sound-wise. Due to the limitations of using...

    My friend helped me do an A/C conversion recently. He's an actual mechanic (as opposed to me, who makes it up as I go along), and after fighting with this for the better part of an hour we agreed...

    I am said owner. I sent the exhaust to DPI at the end of July 2015 (everything but the headers). I heard back in December 2015 that it was ready to test, and they wanted to match it to an engine...

    I'm impressed by how convoluted that Carerra exhaust is.

    You could probably do the dual-mufflers routed past each other, but you'd need a way to bend the pipes to pull it off, and that's out of...

    Yeah, it seems that the aftermarket version of "quiet" is a lot different than what people who actually want a quiet exhaust think it is. I have an almost-finished 3.0L conversion with DPI headers...

    Cool, good to know.



    No problem -- I didn't realize how common and straight-forward reflaring is. Doesn't seem like much of a problem.



    I need to redo my brakes more fully at some point...

    Responding to myself: I googled re-flaring and found out that double flare kits are inexpensive, and that it's pretty easy to bend brake line into whatever shape you need, as long as you're careful...

    This is really cool. I'd also like to do it at some point, but I have a few questions:

    Did you wind up sticking with the Chevy Volt reservoir, or going with another solution?

    You said you...

    Now that's interesting. I might have to look into CANbus more closely. I wonder if there's an easy-to-use USB adaptor with Mac drivers and a good API... Although it's pretty easy to open a serial...
  18. I'm assuming that I won't have much trouble...

    I'm assuming that I won't have much trouble getting a good warm idle on Saturday, once I replace that coolant hose and now that I have the coils on the right cylinders.

    As I understand it, for...

    I think I have some level shifters around here somewhere, but they're probably 3.3v to 5v. Good to know about those pins.

    I wasn't sure if I wanted to use CANbus. It mostly depended on what...

    I think there are four unused pins, labeled Spare 1 (CanH), 2 (CanL), 3 and 4 next to the sensor return pin on the top of the connector. I haven't looked into how to use these yet. My long-term...

    For idle, I want to go with the 790 spec'ed in the manuals, and boost it when the A/C is on at idle. It's my first time doing an engine control system, so I figure playing it safe is the way to go....

    If not for googling about hose clamps and leaks the day before, I wouldn't have realized that such a small difference in hose vs connector size would make it unsealable.

    I don't remember if the...

    I think I figured that ground is ground, so it didn't match which pins I used. I'm not sure how true that is here without looking the board, but it's wired up per spec now. But there's still that...

    Iíll do that after I fix the coolant leak and put back together some of the back of the car. Thanks!

    As promised, here's a video of the popping from the exhaust (pop is at ~10 seconds). The ducting I'm using to try to vent the fumes out of the garage are masking any possible flame, so I don't know...
