Once again the Silvia has taken my funds/time/patience. I took it out for a drive and while cruising down the highway it started sputtering.. I pulled off and started troubleshooting. being that it was a misfire/sputter I went straight to the coil packs and plugs. Pulled all of them inspected the coil packs and cleaned the spark plugs (weren't dirty but just to be safe) swapped around coil packs as well and still no change. I checked the ECU and it was throwing a code for knock sensor. At that point I had it towed home. Discouraged and pissed off I let the car sit for about two weeks before taking a look at it. Troubleshot for a good two weeks, changing out parts, cleaning, checking continuity and voltages. I swapped parts out with known good to include MAF, ECU, Knock sensor, Plugs, Temp Sensor, ignition module, relays.... And then compression test with 0psi on cylinder #4. Then did a leakdown test to find that the exhaust side was leaking right through. So with that I had it with the CA motor, this is #2 and rebuilding this one is not what I wanted to do. I had found a great deal on a slight upgrade and picked up and S15 SR20 with 6 speed trans.

In that deal I also sourced a complete EF7 wiring harness that had power options as well as a cleaner set of doors in preparation for less bodywork. Now I'm not needing to hack up the harness to attempt to wire in power windows.
Yeah man for sure, I may have found a bucket but now to make the decision to sell my Recaros to get this bucket.vanrij wrote:Nice find on the Spoon reclinable seat. Those are hard to come by! I hope you find another one, but if not your Recaros are pretty bad ass too.
