I finally got her running pretty strong, 10 psi is enough for now. Finding the balance between low steady idle and stalling when letting off the throttle is not as easy as I'd hoped.

I did find something weird, my wheel offsets are different on the front left and right. My right wheel cleared my BBK by a mm or two, but the left touched. There's also a visible difference, one is flush with the fender and the other's recessed. My right wheel touches something on a hard left turn but I only hear it if the car is moving. Its alligned with new rack & pinion. How is this possible? Are all st18x axles the same length?

Over the past few months, I got around to installing the SARD 800s, RMR Manifold and mustang TB. It took a few times to get everything to pass leak tests but it's done! I had a high idle prob that seems pretty common and impossible according to MR2OC. Apparently it's against the law to let your car idle here, so I locked myself in the garage to figure it out at the risk of dying of carbon monoxide poisoning. I think I finally beat it tonight.

More to come!

The axle length wouldn't be able to move the wheel closer to the brakes, so I'd check the wheels themselves. If they're different just buy a cheap spacer to even it out.

As far as that idling law I'm guessing they wouldn't give you a ticket if you're actually working on the car but who knows, the Germans can be interesting people.

I found that it's easier keep a steady idle with the IACV hose blocked.

Right now i'm half and half on the battery relocation. Under the hood is entirely too cluttered.

The seat covers came in and that's going ok. I really like the feel and look. Once the hog ring pliers come in i'll post more pics.

Here's the seat in work and a pic of how the car sits now.

I was careful while shimming the brakes and test fitting the enkei's, everything fit with a mm or two to spare so when i backed out and heard the rubbing I was pissed! I'll go with longer studs and a 3mm spacer when spring rolls around until I can figure out something permanent. If it ain't one thing it's another...

Seat covers look really good, where did you buy these?
