theres a ground right in the diag block tho... im just not sure where it is.. be nice to just have everything plugged in there to keep it clean....

anyways i never bothered installing that today. i spent the last 4+ goddamn hours cleaning out MORE rat shit... went to turn over my car and fucking thing wouldnt start......

.... water all over me spark plugs from yesterdays little spray-clean of the valve covers

sooo yanked off everything up to the throttle body, yanked out the coil packs, plug wires, put a bunch of cotton balls in there to dry it out... didnt seem to be that much water, but it was enough that my car wont start

well i was at it i started trying to put in the hardpipes, but uhh --- since my car wont start, i cant get it far enough out of the garage to lift it up on jacks

DIE RATS DIE!!!

lol sounds like your havin some troubles.

i just installed the other battery post, so that completes the wiring. i already ran the RCAs down the center of the car, and speaker wire down the right side, power cable on the left i just have to decide on a good ground in the hatch. damn, i forgot, i also have to pick up a 4 gauge ring terminal for the ground, i guess ill pick that up tomorrow.

project for tomorrow is hook up the left side speakers to my amp, and start working on the right side. if i can get it all up and running, saturday ill find a place for the tweeters!

so you'll have more than one left speaker now?

seems like this sunny weather brings out the best of us supra owners. hehe we've all been under our hoods more than anywhere else lately

ohh i got my new thermostat too. and just picked up some fuse holders/fuses for my Apex gauges, and VF1 meter

how many amp fuse should i run for two 12v gauges? ryan said 5amp should do for the VF1 running single 12v. hmm?

i got a 5, 10 and 15 amp fuse

either or

doesnt really matter that much, gauges dont have alot of draw. i would say run them all off of the same 12V wire, with a 10 or 15 amp fuse.

no shit? i was kind of afraid to run both my autometer gauges off one source... even tho those are probably hardly any draw at all

heres a pic from today, too bad i dont have a before shot.. man it was gross in there.... it still is

i think this might be a good time to paint the valve covers

my coolant overflow needs topping off every 3 weeks or so, but im pretty sure its a very small leaky hose, as there are no other signs of a BHG.

as for the tweets, yes thats pretty much what im going to do, i just have to see how it works with the lotek pod. putting them there would make it pretty easy to wire and aim too.

indeed!
