Yes the level is connected to the sensor, but the sensor is working fine and the ground is fine as well. INT not sending ground is a huge issue for getting the patch to work. Level should be fine
Just to be certain I'll jumper it temporarily and see if the operation of the int works. Glad to know that what i assumed about the ecu not turning on INT unless level checks out was accurate.

Progress on the stereo. Found, for free some home theater mid woofers that fit the bill exactly. While the magnet was just a 1/2" deeper otherwise it was totally bolt on other than the female connectors crimped on. Sounds pretty much like stock should i think, last thing is the rear 6.5's and itll be wrapped up! I also got my oem alt snorkel and rear mid tweeter trim cover in so that means im really close to 100% car!
I also did a mod so I used two washer sprayers instead of the one bi directional, as well as put on some pilot replacement sprayer nozzles that actually mist and not shoot lines.
I can now operate both front and rear sprayers without breaking anything.
I traded up a c4 coil for my mud flaps and installed it, works perfectly and feels really Smooth now! Actually brought my idle down to an almost acceptable 1100.
Hopefully hanging out with another member with a 165/205 swap this weelend to compare signals amd operation.
Love driving this car already!!!

So my compressor was seized and the clutch locked so my belt melted and snapped off, but I was planning to build my fan shroud and install the 68c sard t stat, so this gave me an opportunity to do so.
Also I couldn't find a decent spot to fit the smaller 7" fan so it'll be a spare for another day.
I'll be going to a junk yard to pick up a compressor from another car and get some new seals as well. Along with a new belt.
I am going to spray the shroud with some high heat black rattle can, and cut some small vents in it as well so it can flow when on the highway.

Also I may pick up an alternator because mine is making lot's of noise like a damn supercharger and it doesn't sound like the bearings, something inside sounds like it's touching maybe the brushes Idk.

The new large coil has made a good difference in sound and smoothness on acceleration. I also have a new cap and rotor to install so when I time it, it'll be spot on, ignition is pretty much complete at that point with the big 8mm wires and colder iridium plugs.

I may be getting an ebc for doing some work on a 165 of another member so that'll be great. I have an electronic analog boost gauge to install in the gauge cluster to replace the crap mechanical unit that is a decade old and cheap and innacurate as hell. Should have the boost control and monitoring completed once it's all in.

Picked up a new mr2 gen3 water temp sensor. Maybe this will solve my cel22 issue.
The cel 54 may be gone soon as I heard the relay clicking on and off while driving, seems there is a timing that it has to sit and idle for a certain amount of time before the pump "turns off". Then when pedal depressed turns back on, I'll triple check the patch and see if there is anything amiss.
I did the patch on a other members 165/205 swap and it worked fine once it was all in so I know I've got it right. My gas mileage and start up sucks because of the 22 so that's the priority, then onto the 54.
I did find the vacuum leak so that's taken care of it was in the a/c idle up little controller valve thing. Put a better worm gear on it and no problems so far.
I had some issues with the vac line coming off of the map sensor at night when I hit 14psi so I bought some little fuel system hose clamps and it hold great now.

Cars running great. Fp is running full time now on 17psi. Developing this lip kit for the car. Lots of stuff done between now and then. I may post about it, maybe not.

A guy in a Mercedes rear ended me, a homeless man ran into my door, cel 54 came on, and cold side turbo oil seal is leaking.. All in one day. But. I have bc coilovers coming soon and a spare rear diff bushing to poly fill asap. Two problems solved but still many to fix

Yeah cms it all happened recently, the Mercedes was totalled and I have $1000 check coming from his insurance company. He seriously did almost no damage and his is totalled now. So that's why I am purchasing bc's and repairing it myself. A testimony to the strength of these cars build quality.

Thanks pinto! I'll have everything squared away soon enough. Going to get a turbo rebuild and changed to billet parts.

Glad to see it survived! These cars seem to attract damage. I may have seen one 5th gen Celica in person that had zero body damage. Probably upwards of 3 dozen dings on mine. I am almost happier with it like this so I do not have to have a heart attack every-time I go to the store and get another door ding. Cars are for convenience to me I park as close as possible. lol
The maintenance hog level of these cars is just insane, spend all the money you can and two weeks later you will need another 500 bucks. I hope you can endure! Once you replace basically everything then its a little downhill from there.
Almost makes it more enjoyable when it actually all works though, glad you are able to enjoy it at-least!
Can't wait to hear your experience with the BCs. How low are you going to go?

FYI... 8ohm speakers are not really suitable for a car.

If your head unit is rated for say 40W into a normal 4ohm car speaker, it'll only be able to output 20W using a 8ohm speaker.

They sound great so I'm OK with that. I may update this thread. Tons of work happening and news with the car, I just don't care to post much lately.
