Well, I know it's been a long friggen time since i've posted any updates,so here it goes:
I've got the 2+ chip from ben swann sitting in storage just waiting to be soldered in, but before that I have a little list of things to do:
get things tuned up a little smoother
figure out WTF is wrong with my IAT sensor
change my trans fluid, including putting some type F in
change my diff oil..
oh and one of these days I need to charge my AC, I never had a chance to see if my AC compressor repair worked.
and I'm sure there's a craptastical amount of other things i need to do, which is why i'm going to drive her around for a little while after getting the above list done before chipping...
but yea, I finished getting my gauges mounted today
got the a-pillar mount molded reasonably well, and doing a mock-up w/ the boost gauge...
Drilling a couple holes by hand... No, I don't own a drill at school
Mocking up the plastic line, I.E. making sure it'll actually fit the way I want it..
Getting things in place for the boost gauge, including the wires for the lights..
NB AFR gauge ready to go in again
everything in place
lots of wires
safety first :P
sharing a ground with my keyless entry for both gauges
ashtray light wires
A little snip in the ecu vac line
from this point i finished running the plastic line, ran a 7/64 rubber line to a tee put in the ecu line, sealed/zip tied all the connections and made everything all neat.
then i traced out where the O2 signal wire connects to the ecu and then slid the feed wire for the AFR gauge into that terminal. I didn't feel comfortable actually splicing it into the ECU wire...
i'm getting about 20in vac at idle at ~6psi max boost, which sounds good to me...
quick vid I made... oh yea, that reminds me I need to tighten my alt belt
