Hopefully have her down and driving by Friday. I need to hook my gauges back uo that I had disconnected and my hot side p...

So with the help of a buddy earlier today we confirmed it had spark after the back to stock rewire and then we figured out only 1 injector was working and 3 weren't. They were bad. Luckily I found a local with some stage 1 and he didn't want much for them. Bought them and installed them. Car started...

Well I tested all 3 wires. Came back good. Got the same 8 bolts for all 3 of those. But still no spark. I do notice that my relay doesn't click when I turn ignition on. I swapped it with known good one yet still nothing. Voltage for the coil pack seems nonexistent.. No 12 volts like it should be get...

No I did not try that. So u want me to disconnect the cam sensor then see what voltage that coil pack wire puts out..?


I was also going to see what voltage I got to those 3 sensors later. Maybe that way I'll know which one is taking the voltage..

Hey guys, she still down. Had a issue earlier with something clicking and I couldn't figure it out. Came from the injector area. Finally traced it down to the tps sensor by disconnecting it and it stopped. So that stopped me from starting it. And I'm pretty sure it's a short in the wiring. When I ta...

It is pretty cool that they actually change color when your headlights are on. yeah the gauges them self are made to be either all red, or all blue or red and blue or blue and red. whichever you wire them up. and then u run 1 wire to the headlamp switch and thats how it lets u switch them at night....

Tom, it's a must have. I just don't know why I didn't do it sooner. I've had my house for almost 2 years and this is the first time I decided to buy a light for it. Wasn't at all that costly either.
