It cranks no problem, but I'm not getting any spark, and I don't think I'm getting fuel either.

Tried Crank sensor, checked fuses and relays. So Stumped. I'm about to change the wiring harness.

Hooked the cam and crank up backwards?

Check the resistance at the crank sensor should be 580ohms I think.. (the bentley is wrong)

Ya the motor wouldn't of run before if they were mixed up. So it isnt that. Resistance on the crank sensor is ~530

So I decided to boost it with my car and it started right up this time. Idle is perfect but once you try revving it, it's missing like crazy. Also for some reason the hazards are on when the engine is running. They aren't blinking but just on. Thinking there might be a short somewhere but I don't have any blown fuses.

Car is all fixed. Turns out it was just a bad ground in the back of the car all along. Ground just happened to be for the fuel pump and also the hazards. So the connection was slightly loose, causing the fuel pump to run intermittently and as far as I know, if the pump isnt working, you dont get park. So all is good now!

'What?'

"Too loud! Well over 102db, there's no exhaust on this thing!"

'HUH?'

Hahaha yeah, that put a big downer on the day. Basically got 4 or 5 decents laps in until I wasn't allowed back on because of the exhaust

Also ended the day going off and ripping the front Reiger lip to shreds. Went into the turn after the chicane pretty hot and the brakes weren't working as they should. Went into mad understeer and I didn't correct it properly

But at the end of the day, even just getting a few laps in was great. Car feels really solid but I definitely have a brake issue. The ABS cut out twice on track and definitely feel like the need to be bled again. I just need to get that sorted, plus a proper alignment and a muffler. Then I'll be back out!

Here are a few pics Will took. I'll upload some GoPro footage later.

Glad to see it's on the track!

Even with my muffler, I was too loud at CMP - I'm looking at getting a second muffler now to run in place of the resonator. Good luck!
