Was this the first time you have ever done any engine work
Nah, it was 2 simple things. Spark plug wires crossed, wire loom obstructing the valve cover. All fixed.
Now to get my Hogan DP and cat cut, and my 3.3 on and scan!
As for the first time working on cars... far from it
I worked in a shop for 2 years, and never had a problem like this.
I guess it was because working on cars with no sleep = retardation
BTW, i'm Rob from Regina, Saskatchewan. I'm a big fan of sleepers, I have owned a 86 Omni GLH, 2 89 Taurus SHOs, 1 92 SHO (all 5 spd), 1 87 Turbo lancer, Turbo sprint and a Turbo caravan.
So far I have the W-body 2 peice intake, 3.4/3.3/3.2 (3.3 and 3.2 for future use), 104'*, 180* drilled, ZZP PCM, 1.9 Rockers and hopefully downpipe and cat cut tomorrow.
Last time at the track I ran a 14.8 with intake/3.4/pcm/plugs/thermo with a shitty 2.31 60ft. I can't seem to launch this car, maybe because it'* my first auto.... ever
I also dynoed at 221hp, 289 lb/ft with the mods I had at the track.
Since it was +30 and humid that day, and on sunday it should be around 15* and they are using traction compound, with my 1.9s and downpipe/cat cut, i'm hoping for a 14.5 with the 3.3 and race gas.
BTW I have been lurking on this site for about 2 months.
I still don't know this : Do I have to take the ABS sensor off of the front hubs when racing? Also, what do people do to adjust the rear height of the car and what tire pressures do they run? I am running stock 235/55/17s.
Thanks for the response, anyways.
