compression test #3

Third times a charm.

All the cylinders were between 170-180psi.

So I guess I just had a faulty gauge on my other compression tester. Those first readings still worry me alittle though.

Atleast now I have some fresh coolant in the car. Now to get back to figuring out why the car sputters/misfires at higher rpms. Need to get ahold of a timing gun and change the sparkplugs.

Here are some pics from when I stopped by TFWorks the other day. They needed the car to test fit some cool things.

about to go on the lift. Nice to get the entire car in the air. I was able to find the oil leaks which are from the valve cover gasket and distributor, also noticed the tie rod boots are torn.

Garage BB wing, word.

Freds 10AE FC, sporting KnightSports aero/wing and spaced out jdm FD wheels.

sputtering up high sounds like a fuel pump issue

Now I see what you're talking about with Fred's car, Phil. That thing is pretty wild. I have a feeling it's even better in person.
And you've disappeared from Facebook...what's going on?
