Gotcha. I would assume I have a 2020 model, as we are almost at the end of it haha. Who knows though. I want to change the torch out, but the din connector with the quick disconnect is $50-$80. Then torch and cable. So I need to wait a little, so the wife doesn't have a fit about it.

Cool. I'd say get a torch cable sleeve also to help protect it. I got one from amazon for cheap to cover to ahp torch cables

With looking at upgrading the turbo on this to the 58mm ITS unit I picked up, I need bigger injectors. I have no plans to go e85 anytime soon, so how big should I go? I'm currently running 440cc injectors, and have them nearly maxed out with my k24. I would like to stay with an extended tip if possible.

So yesterday I finally got around to messing with this some yesterday. Needed to take the ebrake off, as it has been technically on for more than a year. Popped the DS rear wheel off to find this.

Need to get some new ones, as the PS looks really rough as well.

I also got around to testing my theory about the sync loss issue. I unmounted MS from the blower box, straighted out the wiring, and reseated the connectors. It seems to have worked. Has the car running for more than an hour, with about 30 min of driving. I didn't notice any sync loss at all! Very excited!

I think I want to build a bracket, and mount it like this. Keep it off the floor, and the wiring as straight as possible.

Will try to get this done this week. Carlisle is quickly approaching. Oh, I also have a crack in my coolant reservoir, go figure. I have something special in the works for that though.

Drove the car to work tonight. About 30 min of non stop driving, and not a single sync loss. Feeling much more comfortable driving her again.

I have a small crack in my coolant reservoir next to the little nipple coming in from the radiator. It big enough that it dripps coolant out, so I decided to try to clean one of my old tanks up, as they are oem, not this aftermarket crap. I used a dishwasher pack, rice, and rock salt as outlined in a couple you tube vids. Worked pretty well, but not well enough for me. Not exactly sure what I'm going to try next. Not looking to make it white again, I just want all the crap out of it. Any tips?

I've never done this before but just spitballing... I'd try putting in a few drops of dishwashing detergent, a handful of #10 or so hex nuts, and about 1/3 full of water. Plug all the openings and shake the living daylights out of it in all different directions for several minutes. The idea being the nuts would act as an abrasive and knock off whatever's coating the inside of the reservoir.

Thanks Eric. That's pretty much what the rice and rock salt did. I'm down the the small corners needing to get cleaned out. I don't want to put anything too fine in it, and wear away the sensor, but was think a hand full of 2 or sand with dishwashing liquid might do the trick.

Oh, and moving the MS, and reseating the connectors seem to have done the trick for the sync loss. Drove for nearly an hour this morning, had to take the kid to school, and didn't have a single one. So hopefully mounting it will keep things good!

Well, I got my new sway bar links from rockauto installed yesterday. The ones I removed were factory original from 91! I know this because they both still had the green paint on the threads and nuts. These pure chinesium ones I don't expect to last nearly that long.



On a different note, after taking off the ebrake, I still felt like I had to stand on the brake peddle to get the car to stop. These pads and rotors have been on the car for around 7 years, with a lot of sitting around. The suggestion was made from a friend that the slide pins might be seized up. So, I went about ripping off all the calipers to check the pins. All were moving freely, so I moved on.



After checking the pins, I decided to pull the pads and rotors and clean them all up. Fronts went like normal, pads fell out when I pulled the caliper off. The rears in the other hand, the inners were held very snugly in place on the carriers. So poped all the pads and rotors, cleaned up the carriers and pad contact surfaces. Not they slide freely. I also deglazed the rotors and ran the pad faces on some sand paper to break the glaze and rust off. I plan to replace the entire baking system this year, so I wasn't worried about it too much just yet. If for nothing else, I feel like I have power brakes again...
