Im liking the SL-R chassis better and better everytime I see it and I like the side radiator scoops, low chassis height and the huge engine room. http://i526.photobucket.com/albums/cc345/1993ka24detgt/SL-R_01_large.jpg http://i526.photobucket.com/albums/cc345/1993ka24detgt/SL-R_02_large.jpg http://...

Almost sounds like you're getting a full out MAF signal. Are all the cylinders flooding or just 1 or 2?

Are you running an S-AFC? if so, what does the AF% say at start up?

If you can pull your intake manifold off your motor - cold. You can check and see if oil is puddling on the intake valves. When my stem seals were bad, there would be a sizeable amount of oil sitting on the valves ready to go into the cylinders on start-up.

Sandwich plates are not filtered. Get rid of it. I burned up 2 turbo's running a sandwich plate. You might get away with it running an older motor but a new motor will run a ton of metal particulate from break in through your turbo.

If the plugs are getting wet, unplug the injectors and let it crank, if it fires up for a second. it could be your injectors over working and spraying too much fuel. Bad FPR or MAF signal?

To each their own. I find with coils the car is an inch lower but the suspension is much stiffer so you actually bottom out less. Eibachs are only 2" low but they have a lot more travel and will compress just as far. You get used to coils and adjust your driving style, I cant remember the last time ...

Flip the plug wires 180 on the cap, You have to make sure the rotor is hitting the no1 plug when the bottom AND top end are at TDC. If you just move all the plugs over 2 places you can check this without pulling anything apart. The motor flips twice for every 1 turn of the cam so you can have the bo...

These Ebay/Emusa coil overs are COMPLETE GARBAGE. NEVER let anyone buy them!!! The stantion tube moves conciderably within the shock body. Because the S chassis suspension rides on this axis of motion, it will create shaking, poor handling characteristics and premature seal failure. Mine never ended...
