Thanks, I've actually got one on its way shipped. Hopefully that'll take care of it.
My buddy's a mechanic he said he'd stop by one night soon an take a peek also.
Just need more time in my life to spend "playing with my car" as my wife calls it.

Ugh, no dice. Maf didn't work.
Not sure what todo now. Maybe I'll RIP the manual harness back out. Then I'll at least know if it's the harness. I guess, idk.
My mechanic buddy's 3 kids got sick, so hes way behind at work. Not sure when exactly hell be able to make it over to check it out.

Any ideas...

Besides, rush a swap.

Ive been meaning to update...

Have been building a new home. So, lwags been but on pause. Should have been moving in this weekend, (memorial day). Ended up getting robbed. Waiting on cabinets to get built again. (Long story).

Anyway, the manual bulk harness I bought and installed never work out. So next steps to return the altered auto harness so I can drive it to new home. I would trailer it but the fuckers that robbed us loaded up our stuff on and stole my trailer too.

Iv been slowly acquiring parts for a swap I think iv got everything just need to send keener my harnesses to merge. I'll just have him set it up for the manual tranny.

I've got a pile of parts to install, just playing the waiting game.

No big surprise. I've got a set of 255 heads, and a 255 short block with just over 100,000 on it.
Plan is to refresh heads mostly stock at first. Run the block.
I also have a complete 22t. Heads off that and ej22 block will go in my 87 gl10.

Then #5 thrust conv., forged this n that. Then all run off 06 sti ecu, intake, immobilizer. Not looking for anything too crazy. Somewhere between 280 and 350 lb torque.

It has begun, again. Site for future shop. Harness off to keener for rewire to manual. Should have done that a couple years ago. Have been still slowly collecting parts. So hopefully something will be happening fairly soon.

If anyone's even around to read?

Good eye.. Picked it up for right next to nothing, its in ruff shape. The kid had no idea what it was. Probably donor it out to my 87 gl wagon. I think the 22t heads would be perfect for it, with the 5 speed hi/low.
I'd like to send the block to Dale at motion machine n have the thrust conversion done, forged rods an pistons. Then put my D25 heads on it, swap it in the gf. But all in time, no real hurry.
If you need any parts off it let me know. Just make it a little worth my time an pay for shipping. I really hate to tare it apart, but its beyond fixing for me. To many other builds to start another.

I appreciate that. I'm at the end of my SS ownership (4 in total). Kinda sad, kinda happy.

I don't think there's really any parts I need, unless you had something really unusual such as black interior on a car with no airbags. Only a few 92's had black, most were gray interiors.

Its black interior, for some reason I think there's airbags though. Not real sure. I'll look tomorrow, let you know.

On second thought, I'm selling my car, I don't need to be spending any more money on it. Thank you though.
