long time no see, had a lot of stuff going on...the bird is still here though, made also a lot of progress:
maf, pcv, stereo system, more interiors, the infamous elbow, a roll cage and so on.
attaching some pics.
253000km on it.
still working on the interiors, installed the rear speaker covers and waiting to install the dash cover.
also changed the infamous elbow with an aluminum one.
bought prothane total bushing kit too.
lately i've been having this issue though:
car not running fine, looks like it's missing, it skips and jumps under medium throttle input and won't accelerate hard under heavy throttle input (very down on power). also not precise throttle response.
still no CEL yet, after 250 miles.
i cehcked the coils and they are fine (i mean sparks are good).
i think maybe a clogged injector , or bad spark plug or wire.
sperk plugs, wires and coils have the same age, which is about 20000 miles.
sorry for my english.
this is a quick video of what happens.
the lower the rpms the more it jumps.
the hotter it is the more it jumps.
it does the issue in all the gears, getting worse with high gears.
Welcoming myself to this forum with some pics of my ride, currently at 170k miles.
