He's just running interference for the BMW so we won't know if it's running yet.

"He's just running interference for the BMW so we won't know if it's running yet."

As of Saturday, it wasn't. From the cursing, I'd guess electrical issues.

Harry, snap the whip damnnnnn!

Cy, the car is running. (phew) it took a hell of a lot of work but I learned a Shi%load this week about this motor. It's so damn sensitive to any minor fuel changes compared to the 4G63. It won't start with the 850cc injectors, period. I have to shut the pump off and crank it with residual fuel in the cylinders, then fire the pump once the car is running. Needless to say the ECU is being sent out this week and I'm going to miss another event. The body harness is done. I can loom it now that the car is working.

I had to back the AFC low throttle settings out 50% across the board and back the FPR out to about 28lbs to get it to start.

It backfires and shoots blue flames every now and then which makes me quite randy.

Anyway.. enough of that. I'll have some more to say about that later. Here are some more Galant parts. Talk to Paul on these.. they just show up at the shop and we can only guess who they're for.





One more just to show that I have no life and I'm at the shop 13-14 hours a day trying to get this POS on the track.

...

Plenty of stuff still to come ... you will have more cashflow SOON !!!

I'm going to need one of your SS Fuel pick up housings as well !!! BTW did you get a look at Mike's car to decide if there are any issues involved in hooking up the hydraulic handbrake the way you suggested ... I was under the impression I'd need to run another separate caliper for the handbrake !!!

Paul.

I'll look today. I don't think that you'll have to do that but the problem with a dedicated hydraulic handbrake is that it will bleed down and it's tough on your seals if it's not used as a momentary brake.

Paul look up the dune buggy stuff for the hand brakes. You can get the systems that have one for each rear tire. Great for sliding through corners /drifting or showing out. Feels like driving a farm tractor.

My dune buddy friends all have them and use them to steer or do donuts by having them on the front.

Yes, exactly. It's easier for Paul because he has a group of guys he trusts here and won't have to pay for individual shipping for every part to him, and... many places can't take credit cards from Hong Kong and other places far outside the USA, the companies feel like it's a lot of liability. It works out well for everyone.

I see you got the Griffin controller. Damn, I still remember when those things were called paddles back in the days of Pong and before there was such a thing as a joystick.

Yeah,
I really don't know what I would have done without all you guys. I really don't think I could have done all this on my own. Funny isn't it how you guys are all craving JDM and this JDM VR4 is gonna have more DSM goodies on it than half the DSMs over there.

The Griffin Powermate is pretty cool. I'll have to actually get it plugged in to the dedicated on board PC to find out how much functionality it has. Essentially it will be the master control volume for the MP3 player and hopefully I can get some of the auxiliary buttons programmed for mute, next/previous track etc

The keyboard is a wireless unit, supposedly with a 100 ft range which is kind of pointless since I'll only use it inside the car. I just like it because it's small and there are no wires in the way. It will fit nicely in the magazine pocket on the back of the passenger seat until I need it.

Harry,
I would love to. But whilst I think I can make it over to the States (perhaps next year) sadly I don't think I'll ever be able to get the car over there. I guess we are always going to be looking at each others cars and just wondering ...

I think there's a lot more to it than the car though. I hope CJ is willing to share with me on tuning the DSMLink when the time comes and I'll be asking your advice on launching I'm sure.

Right now I'd settle for just making my trunk as clean as yours. I wish I knew how you made those trap doors for the batteries and amps etc.

Paul.
