Some progress, did the speaker install on the fronts, Alpine 6.5", this car isn't a virgin as once thought. The door panels are coming apart pretty bad and the fabric is stretching pretty bad on both doors. The plastic is all broken from the door but I might be able to super glue all that back together it's a pretty clean break. Previous owners drilled screw holes on the driver side door to bolt the panel back into the door. If I can't fix it, i'll replace both door panels.

While doing the speaker install I found this: in the last 11 years this car had 20K miles put on it, and the car shows the tell-tale signs of a car that sat for a long time. One other oddity I have noticed is the day after the timing belt install the exhaust pitch changed drastically, it went from a G35 nasally sound to a Ferrari 550 Maranello sound, which is similar to a turbo Probe or an NA one with Pacesetter longtubes, now it has slowly gone back to the nasally G35 sound.



Leaving tomorrow in the AM, won't be much getting done until September when I come back home again, but I'll be looking for parts.

9/17/17 update, parts have been found!!!

I'll be home for a week, and on the docket for a 72 hour mega-fix it meet is the following

-AC compressor, lines and seals, a complete AC overhaul, thanks TRWeiss for the ZE compressor, +5hp!!! Lol
-Front and rear STB's, also from Travis
-OEM fog replacement from Travis
-Scott's KL trans saver kit and his bronze bushing kit
-Some stickers
-#6 pool ball shift knob
-Rear Apline speaker install and possibly subs and an amp I believe the car may be wired for it I'll know when I pull the rear panels for the STB install
-Tires and alignment, I may paint a set of 5-stars white that I have and get the new tires put on that. I always thought white on white would complete the 90's look

What might possibly be on the docket if I get a hair up my ass will be

-G4 manifold install
-VGC's, they leak pretty bad
-possibly Hotshot header install and Greddy SP2 install

I will not allow Damon to pull the plug if I have to I will host it myself I have the capital and the means to do it, but I don't think it will get to that point I have a feeling someone will carry the torch if need be.

FB is great for buying and selling quickly because, well, everyone is there, but the knowledge is here, I have been combing the archives for stuff pertaining to the installations I've been doing this week.

the toughest part about the archived write-ups is that the pictures never work.
But even I have to go back to re-read old Megasquirt threads as I am megasquirting my first obd-II Probe this week

tl;dr: don't can PT but if you do and can't find anyone to host it, I got you

so apparently what started out as a simple speaker replacement has snowballed into a full blown speaker rewire amp and sub install as the factory harness was hacked up by the previous owner and the OEM amp isn't driving the right rear for some reason.

I swore to the Flying Spaghetti Monster I would do this one right and wouldn't half ass anything so that's what it will be. Getting new tires and alignment on it right now, TRWeiss's stuff should be here in a couple days. Tonight I will probably start on the audio wiring and find an amp and sub combo tomorrow.

PT Racing stickers are on and the butt dyno registers a +20whp gain

Alpine speakers are working, wiring the amp and sub in right now. Used the Metra 5514 kit to bypass the amp.

Big package should be here tomorrow so hoping to get the audio install done today so I can turn wrenches tomorrow and get the real modding and fixing done

10/4/17 update

Vacation is over, work has been finished.

Bought TRWeiss' ZE ac compressor, didn't fix the problem. Swapped AC lines, toned out electrical lines, measured impedance, checked fuses under the hood, checked relays, checked switches, nothing. As a final hail mary, pulled the fuse panel under the dash, to check the 20a windshield wiper fuse which is tied into the AC circuit and for disconnected wires, well apparently there's a 15a fuse next to it called "AIR COND" and it was blown so we sat 4 days and did all this work over a blown 3 cent fuse. I didn't think there was a fuse for that under the dash but there is. Oops. In any event I have super-cold AC. Lol

Sub and amp is in, Sony Xplod 12" and a 60 dollar Alpine pawn shop special, it worked and sounds awesome with the Alpine speakers. I wired up everything myself.

New tires are on, alignment is done. I have a spare set of 5-stars I will powdercoat white and get mounted next time I'm down.

Factory fogs work now. Strut tower braces are in, who has a STB for the front that wont make me shave off my hood prop? I have a rare PGT with a working hood prop AND an intact dipstick (+10whp!!!) would like to get that in on the front.

Got a coolant flush in, managed to get a pinhole leak in the oil cooler while out on the road 2hr from home, limped into an Autozone and spliced it for now, lost all my coolant splicing that but whatever. Apparently I have some nasty blowby the PGT got its first kill vs. 05 Civic with a vinyl wrap and some sort of exhaust at least well when I checked my oil afterward there was literally nothing on the dipstick and two days before it was under the "F" aqnd I spent some time above 90mph on the highway for a couple hours so something is going on. It may be related to the VGCs on that car that should have been done years ago but im saving that for my KLG4 manifold and headers install.

Should have some pics up tomorrow Im on my Linux netbook and I can't access my FTP with it.........yet.
