    Small update.... Got the torque converter replaced last night and took it for a good drive....... NO LEAKS. Only thing left to do now is replace the Air pressure sensors for my air ride with better ones from VDO,Should have them in next week.

    As it's been cold or snowing for the last 5-6 weeks I've only put 300 miles on the truck so the EFI is still learning but looks like the gas mileage has go up a little.

    Holy puck my air ride controller bit the big one and I had to get a new one from a different company. DO NOT BUY AN AUTOLOC AIR GENIE they are crap, the thing has had a number of problems since the day I originally installed it. Went with a slam specialites air switch pad and 3 digital air pressure gauges (will be installing tomorrow so no pic's yet) Had to rewire some of the system and add some wires so was out in the shop for around 6hr's doing it. have another 4 or so hrs to get the gauges installed as I have to redo my center console (pic's to come).

    Which digital gauges did you go with? I want to get some digital but don't really want to cough up the dough right now, just want to get my truck driving again, so I'll probably just get some analog gauges for the time being.

    Just had the experience of spending hours looking through one thread and making your to-do list a mile long ... and all I was looking for was fuse box info to switch over the glass fuses to new and add another circuit to dedicate to gauges ! haha at me!!! Excellent inspirational thread. beautiful stuff all around

    That's kind of funny as I'm doing a rewire on a 75 Datsun 280Z right and changing over from glass to the ATO's with the same set up I used in my truck. The 4 fuse blocks are around $6.00 and can be stacked so I'm putting in 4 blocks to give him 16 fuses.

    Been out of the loop for a while. Thought I would pop in while I have the chance....... been nuts in the shop for the last 6-7 months.Did a few things to the truck that needed to be looked after. Replaced and old Weiand Duel plain intake for a low profile single intake as it's better for the EFI set up. I figure I gained another 20hp and a few ft/lbs of torque. Replaced the oil pan gasket as its been weeping for the last 2 years.

    Other projects (Customers Cars) I've been working on: 1992 Tercel with a 240hp (rough est.) 1.5L twin cam turbo. Took the best parts from the 3EFE,4EFTE and 5EFE to build it.

    1989 Mitsubishi Mirage Turbo. Just a basic rebuild with the turbo parts and a turbo off a eclipse.Still have to do some custom piping to set up a small front mount intercooler.

    1976 280Z with a L28T out of a 280zx. Just have some sheet metal work to finish then it goes for storage until he has it shipped out to where he moved to.

    240sx with an RB20DETT swap done to it. I have a bunch of crap to fix that was Micky moused together by the guy that did the swap.

    90 300ZX that I did a TT swap to (NEVER DO THIS WITH OUT A DONER CAR!!!!!!!) I was given the engine, Turbo piping, and ECU so had to build a crap load of brackets and stuff.

    I Hope it slows down a little and I can have some fun this summer and hop in on a more regular basis.

    News Flash !!!! I'm Still Alive and Kicking. Did a crap load of work on the truck this winter. New power steering system (Pump and Box),replaced the Oil pan as the chrome one was bent at the flange and wouldn't stop leaking.Cleaned and repainted the engine and brackets.and last but not least..........GOT PAINT FOR THE TRUCK!!!!!!. The crew that I have show up at the shop are all coming over next weekend to help strip down the truck so I can do the last of the body work and put it in paint FINALLY. Did and experiment on my spare rim, painted the center black the put some purple pearl in the clear and it came out a anodized purple (Will get a pic).

    Other then that just finishing up a paint job on a 92 RX7.Rebuilt the braking system on my motercycle,and a crap load of other stuff. Whats this crap about an economic down turn I havn't stopped working for the last 5 months with customers cars/trucks.

    Well the truck is stripped down and I'm just finishing up some small body work to set it in paint. Fixed a few leaks in my air ride, Got a new dipstick for the trans(Old one was broken at the flange and leaked),Found a small leak in the rad so it's getting sent out to get fixed next week.Should be painted by Tuesday or Wednesday next week, then put back together that weekend just in time for the big Mini Truck and Sport Compact show I go to every year that I have won second place twice in 5 years.

    Fingers crossed you pull a 1st this year! I just realised I have the knock off version of your wheels on my hung dog wagon (mine are look alike one piece alloy wheels) What colour are you getting it hit in? (unless it's a surprise)

    Ouch. An expensive week dude. BUT it'll be rock solid now and the emperor is getting a new suit to match. Hopefully you'll have decent weather and the air will be dry and warm. Can't wait to see you your paint job turns out
