Any idea when the started using 3:88 gears? I found a late bug with a supposed running engine for $275 here. I was thinking of grabbing it for the engine, but if I could use the gears out of the trans in my swing axle that might be an added bonus. I have no clue if they are compatible though.

I think 73 :wink: look for code letters AT
my test drive was ok(no boost I was waiting for the oil to warm up :lol: ) only went up-town to fuel it up ,noticed a small oil leak :oops: just a fitting on the oil thermostat :roll: that won't seal :evil: (New oil system must be working great, oil never warmed up :lol:)
teflon tape only slowed it down,, put some loc-tite thread sealer on it last night so going to test after the rain leaves :wink:

That is a serial port cable more than likely and does not plug into the monitor port. The difference is one is male and the other is female plug.
Most newer computers don't even have a serial port anymore so you would need a serial to USB adapter cable.
I have no experience with that kind of O2 sensor so really can't help on what it needs or how to hook it up.
I don't have time today to look into it due to a grad party I have to attend but maybe tonight I can look into it a little more.

The info should be on their website in the tech info.

You might be able to ask Mario since he sells quite a few Innovate AFR's with his FI packages. He might know more about them.

Ha,, It did 'lift' yesterday :shock: all I have to do is press the loud pedal in 1st or 2nd or 3rd :wink: ( slick's are a must most street tires just spin :lol: ),wheelie's are hard on the drive train too , next weekend is the cruise with lots of burn outs maybe some wheelie's if it hooks coming out of the waterbox's :lol:
here's the culprit that caused the leak :evil: :roll: I went up to the local FLAPS and grabbed a cpl. straight fittings and finally eliminated it :wink: I tried everything to get it to stop :roll: one of my trinkets from the swap meet,, bet the guy new it was junk :roll: think i payed $15 for it can't remember :lol:

Sweet!

Have you had the chance to get it on a dyno yet? I'm curious on the power it takes to lift the wheels.
