I scored a set of KLG4 coilpack wires for a great price online, so I will no longer have the intermittent spark issues caused by the modified stock wires.

The wire harness and ECU are on their way to Scott for the "QuadSpark" ignition module install and final testing with his car.

TunerStudio full version made tuning far more user friendly, and I have a tune worked out that should have it running smoothly with my setup. All that remains are final touches on the exhaust, re-installing the ECU/harness, and then it's dyno tuning time. :welder:

It's nice being able to take my time, now that I have a reliable daily driver.

Scott has my harness, as well as the Quadspark module that I purchased from DIYautotune.

As this car nears completion, I have begun to really tear into my wife's MX-3 for the first time. Stripped the carpet out completely, soaked it in carpet cleaner, power-washed it thoroughly, and brought it back to about 90% condition.

The car has it's mechanical glitches, but runs pretty strong considering how hard it was driven by the previous owner(s). I'm getting ready to lift the front bumper and upgrade the mounts to hold it in place, pop out a few dents, and then try my hand at a "real" paintjob for the first time.

Bummer... I'm going to be away from home until the middle of 2016, so my car will lay unfinished until I return. :(

At least I'll have all of the pieces ready to go together when I get back.

I wish; I have 13 months of training for the Army before I will be home.

I may have the option to buy a car during AIT, but wrenching on the weekends wouldn't fly. If I can get her running before I leave, at least she'll see some use while I am gone.

Update:

The car is in storage until I return home, but I have made some progress with my tuning issues in the meantime. Getting the car running shouldn't be a hassle when I get back home, but that's a ways off.

So, I finally ended my yearlong search for a new daily driver.

I've been keeping an eye out for a 2011-2014 Challenger R/T for as long as I can remember, and I set out with several goals in mind:
1. 6 Speed, for obvious reason
2. Leather - again, obvious
3. No moonroof
4. White paint
5. Still under factory warranty coverage

I finally found a car that was too close to the ideal to ignore... I hit 4 out of 5 criteria, and conceded the 5th because she was priced just right.

This is Lucy:

I will be returning home in the middle of October, and am trying to sort out the tuning/electrical issue causing the spark failure in my MX-3 in the meantime.

She lives again.

After sorting out some electrical gremlins with my custom harness and MegaSquirt, she finally idles smoothly.

Now I'm soldering up some 4 AWG ground wires and replacing the alternator/starter wire while I'm at it. I still need to weld the Borla into place and replace a bent camber plate, but she's good to drive apart from those trifles.

It'll be interesting driving her again after so long.
