Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

More good progress today! Most of the surface rust is removed from the new rear axle. The internal sway bar is going to be the fun one though...

I'll save the sanding and painting for outside though, haha.

RT is free with an optional donation. It's just a 10sec wait if you don't pay it.
No crap, lol. Well that works!

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

I need to buy TunerPro RT, so I can check out live data. The free one is nice, but I really want to be able to tune it properly. RT is only $40 too. The axle is Shane's old axle and it had the Delrin bushings, which were junk lol. I have some Moog ones on order though! Sent from my VS501 using Tapat...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Tore down the new axle today! The junk poly bushings just pushed right out, but the internal sway bar bolts needed coerced. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180113/71b9ad3b6279c265df9ecdc56ae79af4.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180113/fca1b6e948ce15b6488df39f1fa5510d.jpg https://uploads.ta...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

$30 on eBay was very reasonable to me, lol.

Next on the list is getting my new rear axle POR15'd and prepped for the Neon disc swap...

Re: RE: Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Are you positive the new ECM is good? Can't find any issues with the wiring? Jon mentioned on Facebook that it may be a corrupt tune file that's killing the ECM's, it makes sense. I put the tune in the new ECM, then can't connect anymore... I ordered another ECM, I should be seeing it in a week. I ...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

I got my new ECM in, and the new one is tuneable! Problem solved? Nope! I found my external crank trigger wasn't even close to being lined up, so I took it to my work and taught it a lesson with a vice and a big hammer. Problem solved? Nope! So far the MAP, IAC, TPS, coolant temp, crank sensor, and ...

Re: RE: Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

Yes it's generally buy here pay here places, I've installed these before. It was quite funny when didn't have the funds long ago I had transmission work done at aamco and didn't have the money, so how I learned to take the thing off my car to know how to install it too helped me when working at fri...

Or do they only get the box after the first repossession?
I think it's more of a buy here pay here, where if you don't pay they shut the car off? I mean, sounds right, lol.

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

New temp sensor installed a few weeks back, fixed the problem! Did a retune, now the car just fires up and dies. Giving it gas doesn't even help. The tuner doesn't even recognize the ECM now either. I did find out I had an old repo box under the dash, so I tore that out but to no avail. I'm wonderin...

Re: The Derretta, 1994 base with some attitude.

I unplugged my IAC valve today so I could keep the car running and do a voltage test on the coolant temp sensor. It started out at about 3.2 volts, and by the time I decided to walk away it was at around 1 volt, I walked back to the car about a minute later, and it was back up to 3 volts. Looks like...
