Alright then...

Been keeping busy... believe it or not..
Started flocking the dash.. but 5th attempt and its still not perfect ...



Finally I've completed the steering wheel.
Had it going with DTM connectors but for some reason it didnt want to work.
I think the car likes those AS connectors...





In-and-out and managed to put 70+ miles on the car already.
Fixing loose ends in between.





Moar stickers on the PDM keypad !!!
Steering wheel buttons configured to operate the blinkers, horn, low/high beam and hazards as well.

Managed to find a fancy config for the blinkers.
short-press --> 3 blinks
long-press --> 10 blinks
Also fixed the self canceling where turning on the blinker turns off the opposite one if on.
ECU now controls the engine fan via CAN bus !!!!





Door cards are installed as well. Still need to find and install the lever.




Gotta look nice.. edge tape applied as well.




Last but not least.. rear divider is in.
Had to back it up with some tape as this s**t was really noisy.

Where was the best place to find the wir my diagrams to build the harness off of. I have an ej20x that I want to look over the wiring of. Also beautiful car. Love the color. You mind if I steal the paint code from you?

hehe.. sorry .. paint code is off limits.
Gotta be unique in some way...

As for the diagrams.. well.. I did my layout in my head. :P

But depends which one you want to build.
Engine harness or the whole car.

Map out what you'll need and the count the wires you'll need to run.
Amps and length play a role as well. Add wire type to that.

Figuring out the connector part is a bit harder but it's doable.


For lots of things I used the stock wiring diagram.

Holy crap dude, holy crap.

Holy. Crap.

The level of attention to detail in this build is off the charts, and this is coming from a guy who tries to focus on attention to detail in my own build.

Encore, encore let's see more!

Thank you guys for the kind words.

As for building the harness its not that hard. I'd say building it from scratch for a standalone seems easier than messing with current harness.

Standalone uses so much less wiring.

Attended my first car show over the weekend...




Other than that... Went for a pre-tune inspection...
Small oil leak was found from the turbo drain pipe,
as well as the axle boot is damaged..

Axles are making a noise .. so new set is already on order.

Axle boot was damaged? How did you miss that? This is the most meticulous thread on here other than the old FF. LOL

Just messing with you, thats just how it goes, happy you made it out to a show. Thats a big step!

Yeah.. there was one that had a small hole.. which I siliconed up.
If it was throwing grease it would be all over and its not.

But I get his point .. he doesnt want any on his dyno.

Lots of little here&there things getting fixed.

From the bigger things..
Rear axles were replaced with DSS ones.. but for some strange reason both are throwing grease out at the wheel clamp.



Finally propper mirrors arrived.
Had to disassemble drvers' side as this might have been a RHD spec.
Removing few "high tech crazy glued nuts" re-adjusted it properly.





Center console is almost complete. Epoxy, paint, glue, sand and some Dinoc covered the imperfections quite nicely.

So.... I've been chasing rear clunk noise for the last few days.
Re-torqued the whole rear end section. Some bolts weren't torqued.

I think it helped a bit but the clunk is still there.
Mostly when taking off and turning.
1st gear decel as well.

This points me to top spring perch. I cant think of anything else that could make the sound.
Also I've been going back and forth with Turn In Concepts about the ride height.
Seems like the spring I got is too short and I cant lower the car enough.

Since pretty much everything is now in the car I went ahead and weighted the car again.

As 2550 was an awesome weight now with full tank of gas and passenger seat car has gained about 100lb.

80lb --> fuel
20lb --> passenger seat and harness.
Steering wheel and PS reservoir with fluid.



Final wet weight:




And with me in it.

Excited like a baby it was finally time to put the car on the dyno.

Here we are observing Junior doing his pre-run tests.
Sucks they dont let you do shotgun runs...





And... thats pretty much where this story ends.


Loud cam tapping nose has developed before the 1st pull.

After reading one long ass cam thread (1000+) posts .. I've narrowed it down to GSC cams issue where the lobe or the bucked gets eaten away.
I do have the original 6 series cams. New 7 series are billet..
Covers are coming off today or tomorrow for inspection but I have a feeling that engine is coming out for cam replacement.

Question is .. which cam to get as the new GSC billet had failures too.


Seems like intake cam as the AFRs got way rich .. pointing to not enough air.

Such a bummer! Uh have you looked at the brian crower 272s? I'm not sure what cams you are looking for but if my memory serves me right people seemed to like them? It's been 5 years since I looked though

So.. I took off the drivers's cam covers today..

Cams look somewhat OK to my eyes.. I run my fingers multiple times i couldnt feel any irregularities or scoring. Buckets are hard to see so i cant really tell.. but if cams are not scored buckets should be ok.

Put all back together and decided to start the car just to see if the sound is still there.

Started logging, reving.. making vids, comparing the sound.. all was good .. no AFR changes, no tapping.

Then I remembered that all this time I was running without the AVCS solenoids connected. We just plugged it in at the dyno session.

So.. they were now unplugged since I took the cam cover off..
I plugged it in .. reved to 2k and bam !!! AFR at 10 and car runs like ****.

F-ing avcs solenoids...

I run map compare with a base map and both AVCS solenoid were set to LH (left hand side intake)
Changed it to RH ... I went ahead and traced all the wiring just to make sure .. all good...

I go start the car with the proper setting and no issues !!!!
Switch back to LH solenoid and AFRs at 10..

So.. all this, the tuner and me didnt notice that the AVCS settings were incorrect..

Now I wonder it that warrants for a "free" tune as I had to pay regardless..

Can never be too careful. Especially near the end of such a meticulous build as this.

These are for the spacers.
