got a set of hydras this weekend (Thanks Garrett!), and of course this has been a running testbed for maf-ms2.

While I'm swappin' wheels I might go ahead and throw the 25mm front swaybar on as well as the shocks and struts I've got laying around.

this thing is going to get operated on here soon, the transmission is.. le tired. went to move it after letting it sit the other day, and no dice in reverse. think I've got a bleed through on the internal seals in the piston or too much clearance on that last clutch pack. I've kinda known this was coming. I'll take the opportunity to upgrade a couple odds and ends in it, and do the accumulator mod as well. toying with going ahead and yanking the engine and trans at the same time, since I'd like to address some other issues on the car and it might just be easier to do things that way.

raided the junkyard, got some transmission parts. they'll probably just get shelved though til I make time to address this issue. still have to gather some other odds and ends before digging in (not to mention a ****in' $150 rebuild kit, jeeeez)

Nice ride. I've noted a little flat spot on used air masses under load. "Fine" at idle, but odd flat spots elsewhere. Doesn't help that the foam that they put in the lid of the airbox on 90+ cars usually falls apart and does them in...they got rid of the pre-heat that did such a good job of that on 89- cars only to replace it with foam that falls apart after the air filter.

I keep a basically brand new bosch/volvo air mass around for testing. I'm sure you are familiar with this tho.

it is always something, eh? the foam is still intact on mine, but it probably won't matter much longer.

rebuilt the trans (to km148 specs), added the accum mod as well as a slight modification of the separator plate. rolled in fine with the wheels off the ground, if the weather isn't **** after work I'll hook the kickdown cable up and give it a ride around the block to see if it's good or something is goofed.

should produce epic amounts of torque, and maybe a little bit of horsepowers.

sam's has been done for a while now. I may try and have this finished this weekend, but it'll probably be a couple of months before it's actually in the car. LOONG list of **** I want to do before hand.
