Found this, when rich check,

Quote:
No MAF sensor, ECT sensor, HO2S, TP sensor, EVAP, EGR, Misfire, Injector circuit, Idle speed, MAP sensor, or IAT sensor
MAF is good, ECT good, TPS good, EVAP not sure, ERG disabled, misfire no, injector circuit good, MAP good, IAT good.

The scan tool is showing about 440mv and that indicates a dead sensor.

Well, considering my car is down for the count until I get my new O2 sensor, I figured I'd fix that vacuum leak I had under the intercooler plate. First I ran a compression test just to make sure nothing funny happened, all was good.

So I then remove the supercharger and intercooler. As you can see, the intercooler plate never even touched the RTV, so no seal.

But wait, it gets better, I then put the gasket on the IC plate, and what have we here?

The gasket left the core open, I would call this a big vacuum leak. Last time I used the garlock gaskets, this time I went with the fiber type.

This time I made a gasket myself. I matched the IC core. You can see the LIM didn't line up so good.

So, I decided to modify the LIM inlet to better match. Not perfect, but way better then it was.

I then made up a new gasket for the top of the plate, and again, matched the core inlet.

Got everything back on. Now just wait until I get my O2 sensor

I like the way the valve covers match the super charger in color, that worked out nicely. When is the sensor due to arrive?

Ya, it was a stupid mistake, I just never looked at the bottom of the IC core lined up with the gasket. Now I can move even more air. If I take the LIM off again I'll clean up that other side as well.
