Spent some time in the garage today. Replaced a leaky fuel line. Had to make one.

Image

Also started flushing the cooling system. While the car was idling, I did some clean and organizing to make room for the 3B. I grabbed my old radiator to throw it out. Glad I gave it good look because I noticed I never took the NLA lower rubber isolator off.

Snapped a couple pics too.

I drove the car into work for the first time last Friday. My commute it ~20 miles, one way. The temps are pretty low while driving, like in the 60C to 70C range. They normalize when sitting still though. I can't remember if that normal for these cars.

Image

Got one of these Bravo radios for cheap. Seems like people like them and they look way better that most aftermarket radios. If it's daylight, I can't see anything on my Kenwood that's in the car now, due to the reflections.

Image

Made a run down the turnpike to my friends house to pick up the 3B. We did a quick compression test on it. 180, 165, 180, 180, 170. Got it home and on the stand.

My Cq would be right in the middle of the coolant temp dial, summer or winter. It's possible you have too warm a thermostat.

I looked at my order on autohauzAZ. I bought the 80C version, rather than the 87C. That might explain it.

Have just been working on odds and ends, lately. And driving the coupe a couple times a week to/from work. The no voltage issue at the hall sensor has come back many times lately, but each time, I just have to wiggle the connector at the ECU and it fires right up. Just one of those quirks, I guess.

Got some Euro bits in the mail today, for future use. 3B S2 intercooler and crossmember and an RS2 fan shroud to go with the 3B high powered fan. I need to figure out the wiring side of this.

Finally got around to flushing the cooling system, before adding some g13. 1st one on the left was just water. 2nd one, I ran some Prestone flush product for about 5 hrs of driving time.

Regarding that hall sensor on the dizzy, I had similar issues when my B4 had the 2.0 ABK, which is also a dizzy motor. It looks identical. Had to wiggle it or push on it and it started right up. Might just be a shitty/brittle wire connection in the connector. Old wiring.

Yes, very much a possibility. Thanks Chris

Had some time to myself last night while the wifey was watching the Bachelorette with her girlfriends. So, I installed the Bravo radio (IND-600BT). Love it so far, especially for only $22. One thing I noticed...the Bravo radio accepts the exact style connectors as the OEM connectors. I would have tried to just "plug n play", but the harness had been hacked on before and totally new wires had been run to some of the speakers and they weren't run through the original connectors.
