    I just read the last couple posts, did you ever figure out the intermittent issue? Or switching to MS1 fixed it?

    Switching to ms1 fixed it. I was hitting the fuel cut on the BP26 ecu at about 10psi

    Now it's a whole new set of things to mess with. lol I need to post pictures but the flash drive I had them all on disappeared. If I find it I'll post some or take new ones. Also a video or two. Any specific requests? I know I like exhaust clip videos

    So the past 3 years have been crazy with the car. Most of the time it sit, but I did quite a bit. FIRST- I had to rebuild he engine again because the original machine shop didn't clean my block after he machined it and trashed my bearings and stuff when I ran it. I was getting crappy oil pressure so I thought something was up...anyways fast forward and I took the whole short block to another machine shop who did it right. Assembled and all with new bearings and oil pump, etc...

    Then I tore apart the undercarriage to replace the gas tank, but instead refinished the whole thing with new brake line, ebrake cables, undercoating, etc...

    I drove it during the break in period with the BP26 ecu and kept it out of the boost cut so she broke in rather well. Now I have a Megasquirt ECU from Stratified I got from redheddude22 and I went through the harness and cleaned it up, put it in and got the megasquirt working pretty nicely, but it still needs tuning to be perfect. Now I'm redoing the wideband to read correctly with the ECU. After that I'm FINALLY thinking about getting the body work done and have the car looking nice. I have a new grill, and clear headlights and corners just sitting/waiting for a fresh paint job. After paint I plan on suspension with the GC coilover sleeves I have sitting that I got from Pumer years ago lol ...the I should be pretty well done with what I wanted to do. Old picture...

    I do like them! I bought a whole spool to redo all my brake lines and clutch lines but I only finished the two to the back and didn't feel like messing with the ones around engine for the front brakes but they are most important I guess
