well. in keeping with my recent updates that seeming have not much to do with selling or running 10s like title suggests...
i did a bunch of research, loaded all the pages to the tablet. went to work on the Galant.
~figured out wtf i had done to the wiring to the fans, removed rocker switch in cabin
~ran new wire to ECU to ground trigger relay for fans
~got pissed as it seems i dont have pin 53 egr? my notes where for egr, so had to track down and use the fps... hope/think im looking at these pinouts correctly
~re-wired wideband into ECU. was on baro before. thats now MAP for SD conversion. so now its on O2.
~got into ECMLink, swapped O2 front to WB, simulated narrowband off that. done? i think.
~also reset TPS, and made sure idle switch was off
~FPS to Fan control.... well shit. i fought with this for way too long. couldnt find my answer, well, seemed that what i was looking for should be right in front of me. it wasnt. turns out computers arent my thing. and firmware and software versions are not the same (i knew that), and i was looking in the wrong spot for firmware? anyway. flash new firmware = win. fans turn on at 185* and off at 176-180ish it seems? whatever. also set them to turn off on higher boost/tps/rpm. (20/50/3500 if it matters, open to suggestions)
~and may have narrowed down idle issue. first by plugging in the idle valve LOL. then some other small stuff. we will see. think i needs some battery offset work. doesnt like electrical loads on. also might have battery or something issue. it stone shut off like 2 times, showing 8.5v. after a couple key cycles/jumper cables it would fire off. i cleaned the shit out of all the battery terminals (inside/out, top/bottom). see if that works. fired right off without jump after that. oh when running fine it shows 14.2-14.5v consistent.
and while i was messing with all that, taking breaks to keep from getting pissed off too much, or just waiting for her to warm up for fans to cycle and see if she would start leaking any oil, etc.
making a mess. ripped out the chrome strip. left most all the foam. then take eraser (Astro wheel to be specific) in the drill and have fun. i got most the front bumper done i think. but it was getting dark/cold, have to verify in the light.
also have some new black moldings around here somewhere, ill try to get a pic/partnumber for anyone else. i have only been waiting to do this for like 5years? now.
so. starts, runs, idles (until it has a load on it), and doesnt leak oil. id say today is a win
