Well, after burning my fingers a little bit, I finally got the S-AFC wired up in Erica's car. While we were in there messing around with the ECU wiring, I noticed a cool thing: she has an EPROM ECU! (Basically, we can reprogram it; there's a lot of information about reprogramming these cars available.) I had a friend of mine, Steve Piette, pull the stock EPROM chip and install it with a ZIF socket, and replace the capacitors on the ECU for good measure (the previous owner had the caps replaced, but with stock temperature caps, and they didn't bother cleaning up the leakage that had happened before, so Steve needed to make a few minor repairs). As soon as a few blank flash chips I'm going to try using in the ECU arrive, I'll probably get a first chip with some basic changes (stutterbox, 2g MAS compensation, etc) created and see how it goes. On top of that, Erica got the EGR blockoff installed, and I swapped both front axles before heading to the Shootout. In the process, I think I may have seriously b0rked the alignment; we're seeing terrible tire wear on the outside edge of both front tires after that trip to Ohio.
This weekend, we'll probably have the time to finish the installation of the
FMIC, intake, and 2g MAS. Which means I probably need to get off my butt and
get the wiring harness for the MAS made. Still needed: injectors and exhaust;
we're actively hunting for 700+cc injectors for her and a 3" turbo-back
exhaust of some variety.
