Totally understand! If you're worried you could pull a degree or two from the whole map (except at idle) but honestly I bet it'll run just fine as is.

Good luck and keep the updates coming, good to see this car continuing to get the love it deserves :D

It's alive, I think there's a problem with the lifters somewhere. The head seems very loud

That’s normal, it’s because they are not full of oil yet. They will quite down over time. Usually after some decent revs.

I am assuming you have good oil pressure. Above 3 bar when hot?

Yup - as long as there's good oil pressure, I wouldn't worry about that too much just yet.

Yea, it got quieter today when started, but the PS pump was leaking pretty bad still. I switched the high pressure ports over to copper washers this winter but it still leaks bad. Looks like it will be coming back out. Glad I got the 5l jug of 11s.

The serial to USB cable is way to short so i purchased a 5 ft well reviewed USb extension and finally was able to get the VEMS file off of the car. I have only ever used megasquirt in the past, VEMS seems to be great.
Here is the log file, i still need to learn a bit more about it.

update time, today i put the car back on the ground. It is running, not leaking oil or coolant and hopefully no 'green gold' I had replaced 2 of the 8 washers with copper this past winter as it had developed a leak in the rebuilt pump and i had read that the copper washers were the best long term solution as the rubber ones always leak.....i should have replaced all of them as i had to take it back out and do the other six due to it still leaking. I ran it a bit tonite and it seems to have stopped, but only time will tell.... here are some photos of it w/o a bumper to go for a short ride up and down the street tomorrow just to make sure everything is good before i button everything up...... there are some log in problems on tapatalk but once i get on i will put up the photos

so after multiple coolant leaks to repair the car is finally running good, tuning will be next on that front. I did a oil change, its been probably 20min of run time, here is the magnetic drain plug. im glad i got it...

Tonight i tried to get the bumper back on, it is going to be a challenge. the metal brace for the IC didnt lign up that well when i put it back on this winter, it seemed to warp a bit, but it bolted on. Today the bumper shocks wont even fit into the holes, i had to use a ratchet strap to pull them in and then give it a good shove to get it started.

none of the bolts lign up well enough to bolt up and it seems to be shifted pretty far to the drivers side..
