Fast forward almost two more years.

I have actually been driving it a little bit. Been making some changes to megasquirt so i can add idle control finally, which is done.

Also fixed a clunk in my front camber plates.

Of course, yesterday the coolant fan failed, but I should have a new one here wed.

Im hoping to get the tune cleaned up before winter. its been 9 YEARS since I had it tuned last. Its more or less been sitting since. Hopefully next year I can actually enjoy it some.

Proof it moves.

Thought id add a couple pics of the progress from yesterday.

I have all my megasquirt mods done now so I have a working IAC. Eventually that will be nice to have dialed in.

Added some shims and loctite 609 to my camber plates so I no longer have front end clunks.









However, my coolant fan died yesterday, somehow the shaft backed out of the blade hub so the motor would spin but the blades just sat there, awesome. New one is on order and should be here wed-ish. At least its easy to get apart. Had to do all this to get access to the lower fan mount bolts - took maybe 30 mins.

It's neat to see the nose off and how you managed to package everything. Hopefully the fan is an easy fix and you can get back to enjoying it while the paint dries on your other build.
