yes definitely got lucky there, not only the first thing i tried, fixed it, and best of all, it was a free fix!


but can anyone tell me if the bcs is ok the way it was. cuz it didnt feel right. after i bypassed the bcs, it pulled so much different.

todays fix was a necessity. when i was finishing up the build, i left the heater hoses bc i had 5/8. when i needed 3/4. so i just left the bypass i had on. so with the recent reminder of how cold it can get in mich, heat was needed ASAP. and i truely respect u guys further to the north. at least i dont need a block heater!

That looks very good. You can weld my exhaust piping any day! Do you notice any changes? I see you maybe lost some weight by taking out the large cat. It probably doesn't matter, but now you also have less cat stuff to go through. Any noticeable improvement on WOT?

Wes, I think the alumized coating on the piping is giving you trouble. Try grinding it off and report back. I'm sure the FC HF welder isn't helping but hey, its free!

ha ha, thanks rad

as far as weight goes, it is so minimal thats not gonna affect anything. but since thursday ive had a code for "open or shorted o2 circuit". so it isnt running like it should , to compare before and after. im gonna check that issue out tomorrow.

yeah, i wish i had a fine tune as far as the amps go on that thing, but its just min and max switch. and i didnt even think about it being alumizized. you think just a wire wheel would have done the trick? cuz i did wire brush everything, but not drill and wheel.

well all i did was swap the o2 sensor, bc it needed it anyway, and that fixed my code 13. that was cool, yet another easy fix.
i also put the stock type harness on it. as the guy before me had used a universal and put a blade terminal on it. i kept doing the same with the 2 universals i put on the car. but today i used the oe type.
