i need to drive this to work tomorrow, so ill have to wire the egr and bcs sunday, so for now the bcv is vac controlled.

The BCA is acting like it should.


I know the feeling of starting a single-handedly swapped engine.

You are my hero. Thank you, army of one.

However, this nickname is probably insulting to the marketing department of the Army because they don't want "Army of One" to be taken necessarily as you being able to do everything by yourself. According to them, you're supposed to work with everyone as one large, sweeping mass of one organism. Then again, we most likely all understand that the reason they chose that slogan isn't that it'* the best description of one'* role in the military, but it'* actually just one of several slogans that just so happened to be the most exciting to a group of 18-40 year-old males. Buahahahahahaha!

But I digress... Your car is now officially more awesome. I think you've done a great job so far. It'* really good. I'm also impressed by the wiring. Must be fun to get it all set in there. I can only imagine the euphoria. Very cool of you to see this through.
