It'll never spool.

There, said it.

Nice to see it's up and running again!

OK, bit more detail since I did the first start. Realized that the evo intercooler would not fit so I got one of these bar and plate boys from KL Racing

Booger welded my downpipe to fit with the KL racing exhaust



Spent way more time and effort making delicious Peruvian food than working on the car

Built my first EFI wiring harness, for COP, sequential injection, boost control, launch control, etc. Car would not get a cam signal. Realized I had made a minor mistake when wiring the IAC and CAS plug next to each other. Turns out I really can't do anything right.

Fixed the rear muffled hangers. They looked awful. Cleaned them up and welded M12 bolts at the ends to hold the hangers in place.

Put the oil filter by the headlamp, as the air conditioning condenser is taking its old spot now

Just took delivery of newly done coilovers. Smacked myself hard in the forehead with one of the struts while compressing a wheel bearing on the bench vise. Used 2x4s to keep finish from marring. Ouch. Cleaned up the garage as it was a horrendous mess. Anyway, this brings us pretty much up to date. John, I found your shifter foam!

Wow! What a transformation your 242 is taking! BBQ looked like a good time, and nice job on the relay board and efi harness! Didn’t think this 242 could get any cooler...

You know, I need to take a look at the wiring again. My tach does not seem to be doing anything at the moment.

Thanks you guys. Progress has been painfully slow. Been focusing a lot on kids and work in the last month. My usual 11PM-3AM car work schedule gets affected as a result.

Leave the oil filter loose and install a k&n filter. It will be perfect

Plugged away at the car. Found out I lost a friend this weekend and used the time alone to process. Got a few things done











Good bye, Kevin. I hope you have found your peace. I love you like a brother and hope that one day we will cross paths again.
