 New EFI injector harness's have arrived [we decided to replace the y harness and both the other harness's even though one was alright, just to be sure] Just need to replace injector 0 rings and every thing else should be ready.

 A lot going on with new house. Trying to get a pool built and El Nino not helping.

  Should run El Mirage May meet [El Nino?] and spoiler mods should help traction.

We installed our new injector wiring, the faulty "Y" was also replaced and we were having some o-rings that were leaking today so that took up most of our day.  I had forgotten how little room there is to install those wires under the plenum of the manifold!  Any way we are 90% ready to fire the car in which we will do tomorrow around 1.  Here's a shot of our injector wiring.

 We got it fired up after some [a lot] of frustration. We tested the new harnesses to see if injectors were squirting fuel before install in manifold.Right side worked left didn't switched sides at why connection, same thing. plugged connectors in and out several times no difference.

Next step. main connection where y connector plugs in. Plugged in and out several times problem fixed all injectors squirtimg :cheers:

 Installed injectors in manifold, injector leaking gas when testing for leaks, new O-ring finally ready to fire after more leaks and loosening mounting of fuel rails.

 Fired her up, #1 not firing? Same problem as before, check spark, remove plug and gap is closed. Plug had come loose from wrench
when checking for fuel in cylinder and must have closed up when trying to get wrench back on :roll: Easy fix.

 Fired her back up, runs good then no firing on left side, unplugged main harness at y, sprayed with brake clean, blew it out. problem fixed.

  Fired up and runs good, blew cob webs loose from ceiling over 20 ft up, shifted trans through gears, every thing good. Ready for El Mirage :-D

 Troy has videos but had to leave for company meeting in Pittsburg and won't be back for a week. Maybe he can post from his phone?

  JL222 :cheers:

First start was ok, but cylinder 2 isn't firing.



Second video the engine starts to run a little rough so I Subaru it down.



The odd side of the engine wasn't getting any electrical signal and not firing.



This last video we run through the gear and build some heat and ran much better.
