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.
lately the firebird has gone through some maintenance and cosemtic.
a guy hit my door, luckily insurance took care of it. i got a ram air hood (looking for a ram air air intake now).
i have rust on the floor pans, will need to take care of that.
i also replaced u joints, axle seals, brake lines and hoses, spark plugs, wires, clutch fluid, wheel spacers brake pads and much more stuff.
added a short throw shifter too.
uploading a couple of pics.
still my dd
it's been a while, still here though, and this bird is still my DD. 270100 km on it.
i have to fix some rust on the floors , and do all the suspension bushings in the front.
lately i fixed the windows so water ain't coming in from the t-top seals, power antenna is working now (got a universal one from ebay), cleaned all grounds and installed the zzp alternator wiring, installed a short throw shifter with the b&m t-handle.
also went to take some drifting lessons, in this video is me driving both cars, can't drift much with the pontiac though. not having a hydro hand brake and a properly locked diff makes it difficult for me.
