  1. Middle one (with Japan stamped on it) is the Japanifold. Ha!

    My shop in Maryland. Cars on top are mostly junkers/parts cars, and cars underneath are customers cars. Space in Bethesda is limited, that's why the car stackers. Oh yeah, and the stackers are on the roof of our shop. The car is fairly clean. Definitely not worth what he paid for it.

    A customer of mine just bought this yellow. Any chance the previous owner is a VS member? Anybody recognize this car?

    I know you're not one to chat/blabber about things, so you have proven data to support this I guess?

    I like that look also! Could always use the Jag CAI. I used a smaller battery, but turning the battery sideways works too...

    M56 - Internal / External Woes

    You're probably right, the tech would have never admitted he screwed up. You wouldn't believe some of the lame stories my techs tell me to try and cover there ass. Most of the time I'll re-do the job myself so I can see what really happened, since it's my reputation that's on the line.

    M56 - Internal / External Woes

    If the shop owner did tell you those things ahead of time, you should have given them the opportunity to fix it. Who cares what the tech said. Obviously he didn't want to do the job again and work for free, but the owner makes the decisions.
  12. The solenoid valve doesn't occupy much space. Almost seems silly to remove it and replace it with a resistor that's almost as big....
  13. #18 in the parts schematic is the solenoid valve. I left the solenoid valve on the car with the connector plugged in. Others have removed the solenoid valve and attached a 30ohm resistor to the connector.

    You're using the RN oil pan, right? Did you replace all of the seals inside the pan, specifically the 2 seals on the pipe inside the pan?
