    So today's run down is I pulled the intake cleaned the heads and intake spotless

    Flipped a hose a had backward , installed a u shaped hose for the bypass instead of the ghetto cut hose I had back there .

    put it all back together , went and picked up the rad , tomorrow I'll install that and the hoses and burp this baby . also gives the permatex time to cure like a rock before fluids get to it

    So the afco didn't work out being that it is more of a universal radiator . the upper hose won't clear the blower and the fan shroud won't fit right so my buddy is gonna take it back no issue . I just re ordered the mishi moto

    Getting beyond aggrivated today i had to walk away from it. I am ready to give up knd of aggrivated. I went to work on it today to track down the vac leak i had . Find the loose intake bolt. Take the car up the block put fuel in it and it wants to die as i am leaving . Like a vac line popped off but it didnt. I start fooling around reset the tps and now i have a car that surges. TPs sweeps without car running no issue. Set it all up set voltage start the car and the tps signal is dropping out according to the pms which is what i think happened as i was leaving the gas station.

    So basically what went on is my tps took. a **** or was already and just finally did it . I put gas in the car went to pull out and it was like somone pulled a vac line off it wouldn't stay running etc . I tried resetting the tps after driving and noticing the signal was dropping off. Finally I went and bought a new one and put it in but was having trouble setting it . got it set but after one full sweep of the sensor I was getting a signal code in the pms . I went back today and made test leads and put my meter so I could see it in the car . I went from idle to wot a few times to see what the voltage was . I then set the pms in these parameters and presto this thing runs mint . reconnected the msd took it for a ride got it washed and we are back in business I plan on going to a small show by my house with it tomorrow morning . Sorry for being long winded
