Things are considerably better after spark plug and coil replacement. It will consistently start in under 4-5 seconds of cranking. I am not thrilled that it doesn't fire over quickly EVERY time. I'm new to these engines. What should I be happy with?
I am not running a #2 O2 sensor. What kind of affect might this have?
Funny thing.... I only get CPS code on start. If I clear codes while running, the CPS does not surface. How do I test the CPS? It is brand new OEM so I am thinking its fine but maybe the circuit is f'd up?
Now dealing with air bubble issue in coolant. Do not have a burb tank in this build (yet) but I did tap the coolant manifold and ran a tube up for bleeding purposes. Can I employ your run of the mill overflow tank with air release from any old import auto? I know there are bleed threads ad nauseum on a variety of forums.
Wish I had a 5th gear! Pictures and build report coming soon.
