    Do you have an anti kink coil thing handy for that U bend? I think they sell them at any ol automotive store. Something like this. Its cheap insurance for a kink once that hose heats up.


    Is this amazon link not showing up? Its between this line.

    And this line.

    If not search for (for example)
    "Edelmann 1012 Unicoil Hose Bender"

    I can look. The hose has a natural bend and did not change at all.

    2 steps forward, 1 step back. Valves blasted, rear bar is on. 3/4 injectors lost their clippy thing for the wiring so will be putting a little RTV in the connector to hold it to the injectors and sending it. Also the stupid idea I had to get the cpe Downpipe has backfired even more spectacularly. It's 1 1/4" too fucking short to fit my fucking car. I've got no patience or budget for a proper downpipe so getting a 1/4" piece added into the Corksport midsection to make it fit. Also, my friend got a job so he's only available Sundays now so this can get interesting if kids ever want to do anything.

    Hangers also have the exhaust tip touching the rear bumper a little so hoping bolted downpipe helps. Otherwise I'm MAAP gassing hangers.

    Injector harness is on! RTV and pressure for 1-3, #4 is clipped and RYV. Brakes bled. Gravity bled. Barely lost fluid from the reservoir so not much air. It was 46 degrees so the rubber connector was heated up to seat on the bleeder. Air compressor turned t0 be a pain so did gravity bleed. Slow but worked. Exhaust is out for the 1.25" extension. Secondary O2 is installed. Next step is to bolt it all in. Only a couple of weeks to go I think.

    Exhaust extension welded on. Time to bolt it all on. A128AFB0-769C-4EB5-9D1A-F5528651FB2B.jpeg 69A82639-43E0-4E8B-9CAD-EE190C265A07.jpeg DD33867E-21AC-42A5-98A7-23136D20043D.jpeg 52C0AE7D-2A9E-4442-AD7D-75B01E696454.jpeg

    When she's back on the road, I plan to recreate this. What I am interested in, is getting my inner ricer complete by accent led lighting in the fmic area. Don't want a brodozer light bar. Some easy connectors for taking the bumper off and on and I'll install a switch to turn it on.

    Now to get ideas on how to do it.

    Wire tuck is in. Wiring largely cleaned up. Intake manifold is installed exhaust is up and hanging but the hardware is too long at the fucking mistake downpipe. So a hardware store trip to get the shorter bolts.

    2 to 3 weeks to go. So soon.

    Most guys are down for this long due to some catastrophic engine failure. In @Raider s case it's his soft hands and broken back making regular maintenance take three months

    Wait you had covid? At least you are doing the maintenance. It's been 15 months of me deciding that the clunk in the front end isn't any worse than it was yesterday
