Fixed the PCV vacuum leak...



Fixed the sensor ground... when I made the wiring harness for the 4T80E (originally a -60E car, so I had to change the plug and add wires) I removed the sensor ground from C1, 56 to make room for the TFT ground wire. I had tunnel vision that day, didn;t think to t-tap it to the existing sensor ground! DUH!!!!! I put the sensor ground wire back in the C! connector, it was under the plastic cover-thingy still. Since I need to extend the trans harness another 3ft, I'll just t-tap the sensor ground wire for the TFT ground.

The car starts and idles, purrs like a kitten. Sounds like a stocker with the resonator removed. Quieter than my stock exh with the res AND cat removed!
I'll try ot record a cound byte on my digi-cam and post it.

It took about 20 minutes to get the blower and i/c off. I scratched my head for about a half hour while doing some other things. Then it took a whole 10 minutes to cut apart a can and slap some silly-come on there. I suppose the al strips made a little impression inthe wood, I didn't use any silicone on the wood side, just agin' the gasket. I made sure the al covered the entire hole with a little hangover the edges.

That POS heater core already leaks vacuum! I can't believe it! Idling for 10 minutes, how the hell could it ever hold coolant int eh sock application and not leak anitfreeze all in the car?!?!?!?

I had the hoses hooked up but off to the side. I stuck a 3/8" extension big-end into both hoses to keep anything from getting in them. After idling for about 10 minutes I looked over and they were sucked completely flat! I pulled the extension out and stuck my finger over te end of the hose and sure as ****, it collapsed shut in about 5 seconds. What a POS!!!!!

Now I gotta pull the */c AGAIN and spilt the core so I can put the AL one in there. I hope I don't have to move the tubes at all, I will NOT make another set of plates!

POS!!!!!

On a good note (pun intended) the exhaust is QUIET!!!!! It has NO rumble at all!!!!! I can;t believe it, with the straight thru mufflers and 4" pipes, I guess the turbo really does quiet it down alot. It'* gonna be SUCH A SLEEPER!!!!!

I can;t wait til 8am so I can order a new heater core..........

Almost forgot, picked up the turbo i/c from the welder this morning and check it for fitment. It fits, just like I designed it! (Imagine that...)

All I need is to build the charged-air pipe and the install will be done. The coolant systme for the twin i/c comes later after I have replced the POS heater core...

IN the bumper:

BTW, it'* two years to the da since I bought the Bonne for $1500 at salvage auction (charity donation car). All I did was put a radiator in it and drive it for the next 6 months. It has been a year and a half getting to this point. I runs great! All I need ot do is work out the minor bugs! I hope that will be tomorrow so I can drive it on the anniversary!

I'm glad to see this is coming along. If you don't get a sound byte soon, I'm going to drive up there and record one for you. Sorry to see this about the heater core. Seems like it'* quite the piece of rice burner equipment. At least now we know how it is with them, so thanks a lot for letting us know. Sorry it had to be shown in this manner.

I haven;t got it part yet, but I was thinking on the way home last night it could be drawing vacuum bt the hose and nipples and past the hose clamp, not from the core... before i take it apart, I'm going to cut the hoses off from the outside and smoke the core and see if smoke comes out of the throttle body. it might just be a hose and clamp issue!
