Got the engine in and running... the chain that we hoisted the engine out with pushed on the cam angle sensor and threw me 180 deg out... after realizing the problem and eyed it up to drive... forgot to bring my computer with ECMlink and we couldnt get the timing harness to ground out so we couldnt set timing... BUUUT fixing the balance shaft belt and boost leaks has yielded SOOOOO much smoother power response and now my check engine light is non existant so im ready to re-do my fuel and timing maps and start over without leaks... ill post some links to youtube videos of the car and some pulls once i get the timing squared away and everything dialed in

Awesome man! glad to hear you're back up and running. Nothing like the sweet smell of success, or is it burnt rubber?

Ahh cool, I live in MM too. I keep my DSM up in Escondido though, away from all the asshole cops. :lol:

A few of us are meeting up tomorrow night down at that big car show in Kearny Mesa. They have it once a month I guess. Used to be in the Lolita's parking lot, but I think it moved over to Sears because it got too big for Lolita's. I was tossing around the idea of driving the DSM, as long as it isn't raining.

Post it in the proper FOR SALE section of the forum, and put a location in your profile. Make sure you have pics of the car too.
