I'll continue to shit on this thread.

I fixed some things. I ordered a O2 dump, Aquamist HFS-5 and a new clutch.

Actually no lol.

DSM's have an issue with the clutch linkage wearing out with higher clamping force clutches. You get dead play in the pedal assembly and it prohibits full fluid transfer to the slave. It causes the clutch to not fully disengage between shifts, which kills the syncros.

The previous owner put a heavier clutch in, but didn't check the linkage, so it killed the transmission and clutch. I pulled the assembly out, replaced the parts and welded it so it won't happen again.

But now I have to put a transmission and clutch in. I have the transmission, I just ordered a clutch and am waiting for that to come in.

I also picked up a Meth kit and O2 dump.

The tune is being a little wonky at idle, I think it's switching between open loop and closed loop randomly and causing it to run rich at idle, or perfect. It's annoying. I'm going to wire in my wideband with a narrowband simulation to see if that helps.

I slipped it a bit there. I don't care about the transmission, so I went out yesterday and did some straight dumps at a 7k rpm 2-step. Left some nice black marks and went a bit sideways.

I'm currently waiting for it to warm up a bit so I can install the new top on my vert. Unfortunately there is no way my small army of heaters can get my garage 20 degrees when it's negative outside

I had a dream last night that I was driving around with only 3 wheels. I hopefully won't make that a reality this year

Well, it looks like it should be 5-6 degrees this weekend so I'll be warming up the garage and installing my vert top if all goes as planned.

Something weird is definitely happening because I just dreamt that I took my car to a meet, and I somehow left without bringing the car home. Then when I finally remembered there was a blizzard outside!

I think I need to lay off on the late night smoked salmon
