Well cool. I'm sure that those Split-Fire spark plugs are where I made my gains.

The factory IC is so large. Is it a restriction with my tiny blower? May explain why it went rich on top.

Or it's leaking, causing it to go rich. I might be swapping out the NPR for something bigger in the next few weeks. Let me know if you're interested.

Chicks don't care, but you should notice an immediate improvement if you're running north of 10psi on a smaller turbo. Especially if the old intercooler was leaking at all.

Five 240's at the local JY. One is a factory turbo.

Race you there...

Damn. 242 GLT. I can here many swedes crying out loud across the ocean.

Carl, if you go to the Sherwood yard, can you give me a call when you get to this one? I need a few interior bits...

Got the Row 52 email this morning. Ran over when the yard opened. And....








She was picked clean.

I did grab the ignition box for a spare. And I met a couple of fellow Brickers which was nice.

I yanked the turbo. I could feel that the shaft had some play. But when I looked inside I was bummed.





I took it to the counter and they quoted $117. Pass.

Not my best day.

Ha. The passenger side was mint! I let a guy with a tan car have it.

Sad to see a neat little car like this go to pieces.

My tach has been in the fritz for sometime. Seemingly it would only work when warmed up. Even then it was intermittent. I recently picked up a 9800 speedometer cluster at the JY. After juggling parts several times, I ended up with the JY case, a spare 6k tachometer, the speedometer I was using, and the temp faker by pass. On my ten minute drive tonight everything worked. We’ll see.
