Those spacers go under the mounting bolts to hold the rails the proper distance from the manifold.

Interesting. The EJ20G didn't have those.

Rob's Tuned EJ20G ECU arrived today in the mail. Well actually yesterday but the lady just left me a note in the mailbox to come pick it up the next day at the post office since we have a gate and they won't honk the damn horn.

Checked out my port protection! Latex gloves wrapped around my phenolic spacers and set back on the pins.

I just remembered this dream I had last night where I was walking through downtown Olympia and I saw a street sign that said "JECS St." I stopped and snapped a couple pics for guys! Alas, only a dream. After that I was suddenly on a farm picking vegetables and grapes and a bad storm was rolling in quickly...

C'mon now, postal employees can't be expected to work that hard.
Yeah, those spacers mount between the tabs on the rails and the manifold on the N/A.

My dad is a mail carrier.

Excited to see how your ECU works out. Do you plan to make it work with the stock wire harness?

Actually as soon as these assholes on ebay send me my patch harness I will be mailing it out to PhyrraM to repin it and he's wiring up a couple ignitors so it'll plug right in and the ignition system will work properly. It's been over 2 weeks and I haven't gotten my harness yet and I emailed them and no response. They're pissing me off.

They better hurry up.....The last two weeks of June I'm up in the Great White North in a lounge chair, with my feet up, looking out over the water towards downtown Haliburton.

By the way, is there a chance of having the repin documented?

Did you leave the gray caps on the yellow STi injectors? You should remove the caps, and use the rubber pieces under the aluminum caps.

Also, the 90-91 manifolds used the spacers. I'm not sure if the 91 turbo manifold did, but I know my 93 turbo manifold does not.

Oh. I tried removing them with a pliers but it kept slipping off so I figured they weren't removable. I'll get them off with a pick.

My girlfriend drove me up to Renton today to pick up my new coilovers! I was too tired after sleeping only 4 hours, staying up for 20 hours gaming all night and then sleeping 4 hours again.

Spare set of 10K springs. The seller said they originally came with 10K front and 8K rear and he bought the 6K and put them in the rear and put the 8K up front to soften it up a bit.

He also gave me a nice set of instructions. In Japanese.

Sorry bud lol. Ruff day as far as staying awake goes. I'm awake now but I fell asleep like eleventy billion times just now while my gf and I were watching this movie called Memento. Pretty cool movie. Luckily for me I already watched the first half a couple days ago and didn't miss anything while I was snoozing. It had a nice twist in the end that you'll never figure out.

Can't wait to put these bad boys on!
