    As little as you drive/run it and as often as you break other things, you will be fine with head bolts.

    Well I drove it to work today. 80+ mph, heat cranked, tunes mumbling over the usual fox rattles. WOT still sucks, but it's still enjoyable to drive. I'm gonna not mess with it for a while, other than it needs an alignment in the worst kind of way.

    Oh, and a hood. Still need to paint/install the hood.

    Have you attempted to do a garage alignment on your own?

    Yes, it's close but still needs to be put up on a machine.

    Yet somehow, people still wonder why the Chinese are better than us at most things.

    Quick note -

    My ignition issues don't appear to be fixed. I decided to do a little data logging in the HOV lan--- I mean Mexico yesterday to since I thought my issues were pretty close to fixed. Well, they arent. Downshifted into 4th and let it go. 2500-4000 was pretty lame; lots of noise, not a lot of movement. 4-5000 progressively pulled me back into my seat until I lifted. I thought, "cool, that felt ok."

    The issue became apparent when I looked at the datalog -- 22.4psi at 5000 rpm. WHOOOOPS!
    (side note: I actually did 2 runs, and both said the same)


    Here's the problem - at that psi, the car should have:
    a) blown through the clutch
    b) had an epic 70+ mph rolling burnout with a brown stripe between the two black ones.
    c) all of the above.

    I still think the ignition is retarding for some reason. I'm going to unplug the start +12v from the TFI module again and see what happens. Assuming it fixes the timing issue, I need to log the boost again, but I did set up the overboost control in megasquirt to cut out at 18psi. Probably higher than I'll ever need, but hey, what fun is stopping at a low level?

    I'll report back with more results soon.
