Hussein's 1998 V70 Xr : The Force Awakens

Recommended Posts

OK. Not happy with the 12inhg of vacuum at idle. Used the IPD cam tool to get a reference marking

Int @ "5" degrees (just using the cam marker for reference) backed it off about 2 degrees, improved idle,

but not enough, so I backed it off another .5 degree, and got idle vac up to 14inhg, feels & idles much better. Thats' pretty much where my idel vac used to sit.

Exh cam is at "6", I would need to advance the cam to reduce overlap, but I would really need to remove the gear & move it one tooth CC to give me some room to make adjustment, so I'm leaving the EXH where it is right now.

What'd you do with your intake canister (pretty sure you're not leaving it as a hot air intake...)? Need to modify it again? Your energy for this stuff astounds me!

No. it will be in the cylindrical box I made - I have to revise it for the new space - it's not what I had originally factored in.

Looks like I can come up Sat - we can do you cams, and I need to bleed the brakes with the 'ATE racing fluid" I used to do the clutch- didn't want to bleed the brakes by myself, clutch was easy.

Amazing. Can't wait for a full front shot of the new bumper!

Sunny day, looks like - so I'll get some daytime pics - I drove it around 8 miles yesterdaylate aftenoon like this...
