the plugs don't look too bad if just running a little rich imo. why don't you just use like NGK iridium's so you don't have to gap? just out of curiosity.

So I had to go take back a redbox movie today, and since I did not drive the alltrac to the car show yesterday I decided to take it out with a break in the rain. I was a little concerned since I had made some chances and the car was sounding different. The idles sounded strange, and the car had not sounded like this since I had it. So I took it out. I went a bit slow at first since the car needed to warm up but after I dropped off the movie I decided to wring it out on the way home. Even with the higher ratio, the car seems so much more drivable now. And on acceleration I about scarred myself. The road was wet, and I was punching it up to about 60, but I did not expect it to pull that hard. I am not sure how much power a 205 with an intake and exhaust would make in 70 degree weather, but it is enough to where I am no longer in a hurry to switch to a 205 box. Perhaps once I put the boost controller in I might not bother any time soon if I don't need it. So the car is running good, and now I am going to try and get things wrapped up so I can start enjoying it next month since the paint will be fully cured. I had been waiting on help to fix my AC but I might have to start sorting it out myself so I can put the interior back together.
Here is the plan:
• Paint any items I need painted before it gets too cold: Mesh, wiper arms etc...
• Sand out scrapes from interior and paint them with oem color
• wire up scion radio
• Make fiberglass faceplate adapter for scion radio and hook it up
• Get AC to switch on
• hook up boost controller wiring, gauges and speed cut
• put interior back together with hopes of never taking it apart again
• fix rattles and noises

Not really. Too much grip I guess. ;)

So it was nice today and I got a few things done. I am making a must be done before winter list and everything else can wait till spring. My goal is to get this small list done by the autox even next month. For the most part, its not a hard core list but its mostly things to have the car ready as a daily driver for when the winter gets here. Today I painted the wiper arms, and used my plastic restorer on the guard below the window. I also located a plater bracket that lets me mount a front plate.

The car is looking very good!! I love the color. When did you paint the engine bay?

I'm still deciding colors (whether to change the color (To Supra Anthracite), or find a different shade of maroon). I was never a big fan of the Alltrac maroon to begin with. Just cant decide on which color to go with.

Thanks. I painted it back when I did the engine swap. I went black since I did not know what color the car would be painted back them.

EDIT: I also installed my scoop air duct and drilled out most of the broken bolt on my light.

So I started working on my AC wiring. I tried one setup and it did nothing. I am going to keep fiddling with it, because I need it done so I can put the dash back together. I am hoping to figure out how to remove the oem pass side vent too without breaking it so I can install a new one.

I ordered a lot of little things this past week and I hope to wrap up some things by next week. Anyhow here is a short clip to show off the paint.

Got in my wires for the radio. Looks like my metra harness is meant for radios with RCA jacks which I was unaware of. Makes me wonder how I keep over complicating things. I could just plug in the oem radio, but I want iPod use and of course the tape deck does not work in my head unit. Anyhow. I need to figure out how I am going to wire up this scion head unit. I never did a radio install before so I guess I need to some research first. Of course when I get done with work.

Let us know what you find out on the Scion deck. I am considering that as an option on my 165.

Was there a reason to get that instead of a aftermarket stereo that already had ipod hook up?

My main reasons were cost being cheap and low profile oem look. I do not like putting visibile things in my cars that might lead to theft. I try to keep a lot of things low key or oem looking. The main flaw of using this radio is that it is wider than stock, so I will need to trim to bezel for it to fit. That has sort of put me on the fence as far as using it. I think its a good option, but I do wish it fit the oem bezel with no problems.

So I pulled the door panels for my new speakers that came in. I got some ssmb8s to put in the doors to replace the busted oem. I also got in my antena. I used the mount for an ST antenna and bought a stubby antenna for a y2k celica and it bolted right in. I started sanding my front plastic trim to polish them but I think I need to replace the main one on the hood due to a rock chip. Gtfour emblem should go on later this week as well.
