TPS sensor changed, broke a bolt tho!!!! dang it...
But had some weird issues with the power. Used my handy bat / alt voltage testor.
Battery on and not idling it's low 12v
when idling at 600 - 700 now
alt voltage is reading 0
battery is now at 12 - 5v of power almost dead.

Now I gotta pull the alternator get it tested, recharge the battery.
and most likely replace alt, and it should be golden finally :-)

Maybe i am thinking of someone else but you said the alternator was new right? Most likely another bad resistor in/on the alternator. bought a new alternator for my friends car and it died on the way home the next day... bought a new resistor, took the old one out, soldered it in and we have not had trouble since
I keep my car cleaner then my room
Fuck you then, I'll take my movies, box of chocolates, bottle of wine and chloroform somewhere else.
Adding an SSD to that is kinda like strapping a 3 inch stainless HKS exhaust on a geo metro.

Update on this, alternator is good. It passed 2 rounds on the testing machine @ Orilley's
So tomorrow, going to hook up the alt, and all the crap back together and start going 1 by 1 with all the fuses, then vaccum hoses, then wiring.
Something weird is going on and tracking this down is being a real pita.

AC just got deleted mainly because it froze up.
trying to adjust the idle, the idle is at 2k now at start and too much butter fly play. Adjusted the cable as much as I can but still not long enough for the idle to be right.

Drove it around the block today, I'd insure it today and drive it to work but due to the crappy tires on it, I need to get a new set of tires before doing so.
So Monday will be the full conversion day, Going to get smogged, new tires, then register it.  sell the bird asap.

Strong electrical burning smell coming around the ALT. Will be checking out the ALT later on today, make sure the ground cables are connected, and will be disconnecting the power to the A/C COndensor to make sure it's not that burning up inside.

Yep fixed that, also fixed my tail lights and dash lighting issue too.

Just by doing this



I will also mention the pink wire actually was laced with 3 other pink wires coming out of it before I crimped this.
I have no idea what this guy was running but if it's anything with his previous wiring job... what a morooooon.

Next is when I get back from Oregon is to order a new ignition cyl lock, I have to apply pressure to the key for it to run correctly.

Ok got my CM Springs in, ordered 280zx Tokico HD shocks up front and z31 Tokico HD for the rear.
Not going to be the best, but it's better then what it currently has.

This weekend, I'm also going to pull out the SE body kit and see if I can readjust the front and rear bumper and re-attach the SE sides and lip.

Cool man! Im digging the supercustom side marker lights too ;)

That intake piping must have been a pain to fit around the a/c compressor.  Im with gusty here, ac adds alot of extra weight not to mention it gets in the way of having a short intake.  A/C is for weenies! =P
