  • Picked a bad day to pull the engine and trans out of the daily.


    • I rigged up a new PCV system. I cut the PCV intake tube to give me more room to put a 90 degree outlet for my new catch can setup. This way I can run a catch can of a different type and baffling, plus I can get to it far easier than when it was mounted below the throttle linkage.

      ​I also put a few more degrees of timing in the tune at higher RPM which resulted in even more tire spin... I will put new front tires on it next week, these only have 10,000 miles on them and they are completely worn out for some reason... ( I know the reason... )

      Hopefully next week I will have the new throttle body from Pole, looking forward to seeing how it affects torque.

      ​I put over 1000 miles on it in less than 3 weeks, a record for me. It will hit 76,000 miles on the odometer tomorrow. Love this car... Nearly 14,000 miles on the new fully built engine and turbo setup.

      • Changed the brake fluid and coolant in my '95 Mystique this morning, then sold it for $2k to my girlfriend's father. I was its only owner since new. Since his daughter has power of attorney for medical decisions, maybe I can get it back in the will. Could I then still claim to be the original owner if I sell it again? Time to change my sig.
