Miater update

trbobrick has some aluminum we can use for the solenoid bracket so I don't need to buy any.

I now estimate 5 hours of labor remaining before I attempt to start the engine.

To do (highlighting what I hope to accomplish tonight):
  1. fab bracket for electronic boost control solenoid
  2. install, wire and plumb solenoid
  3. cut switch mounting plate for boost switch
  4. wire the boost switch
  5. put driver seat back in
  6. try installing the new intake again
  7. fill transmission with fluid
  8. tighten transmission drain plug
  9. drain oil
  10. replace oil return hose
  11. refill with oil
  12. put radio back in
  13. replace the turbo's water return hose
  14. rewire radiator fans in series
  15. make sure all sensor wires and the vacuum tube are run from the ECU
  16. reconnect the battery - that will help
  17. Turn on the ignition and begin tuning the ECU, including calibrating the WB02 sensor
  18. Start engine, make sure nothing is leaking.  Particularly fuel injectors, water hoses at the firewall, fuel lines where AFPR used to be
  19. seal firewall holes
  20. fine tune the ECU's idle characteristics
  21. install new heat shield
  22. replace strut brace
  23. replace lower frame brace
  24. put the passenger seat back in and the rest of the interior back together
  25. Put car in motion and further tune the ECU, calibrating fuel maps
  26. Once car is running well, activate electronic boost control and go ZOOOOOM
  1. figure out how the hell to wire the boost switch
  2. install and wire wideband O2 sensor
  3. run wires to the knock sensor
  4. screw the lower shift boot, it's in good enough shape for now and easy to replace later
  5. buy the damn oil filter already
  6. buy new hose clamp for air filter after h4xx0ring the one that came with it (note to self - don't torque it so hard)
  7. buy elephant dick
  8. remove radio for wiring access
  9. remove driver seat for wiring access
  10. buy cockpit switch for low/high boost
  11. install and wire the air temp sensor (use loctite)
  12. run wire from ECU to signal wire so I don't have to have the AFM
  13. reinstall all the turbo plumbing
  14. install clutch switch override
  15. have bung welded to intercooler pipe
  16. new hose connector for intake has arrived
  17. aluminum sensor bung has arrived
  18. install valve cover gasket & valve cover
  19. install coil pack and plug wires
  20. put the exhaust back on
  21. find the exhaust gasket I know is around somewhere
  22. put driveshaft back on
  23. re-install rear power plant frame bolts
  24. get wideband O2 sensor bung welded to downpipe
  25. install knock sensor
  26. remove MSD ignition box
  27. remove auxiliary fuel pressure regulator
  28. remove old heat shield
  29. remove old intake
  30. re-install transmission
  31. replace clutch and flywheel
  32. drain and remove transmission
  33. remove shifter
  34. replace ECU
  35. pull up passenger floor panel
  36. remove passenger seat and disassemble interior
  37. remove bad coil pack
  38. remove valve cover and gasket
  39. remove plug wires
  40. remove strut brace
