Got my antenna on today. I'm happy with the look.

I had a similar antenna on my old wagon. Really liked the RC car look it gave it. So I wanted to do it again. I like it, but I kinda wish I would have went closer to the rear window. It's OK tho, I'm happy.

CJ,

Haven't had time to do it. All last week I had to work and plan for my trip to eastern washington. Just got back into Tacoma as I'm typing this.

Maybe today. I want to swap the headers out for my stock turbo legacy headers. the aftermarket headers I have are cracked. I thought I needed to use the WRX headers, but Alphius pointed it out that I could just use the legacy turbo and move the front o2 into the downpipe like the legacy turbo. I didn't even think of that. I've already got the bung there in my bellmouth too.

So hopefully today I'll swap headers and get a second bung welded on for a future wideband.

Then I can drive it without smelling the exhaust!!!

I swapped out the headers and am now happy. Night and day difference on sound. The aftermarket headers had a raspy sound, stock headers just provide the rumble that everyone loves. Will I ever go aftermarket headers again? F*** No.

I have most of the weekend to play with it so I will get some stuff done. I started sanding on my hood again.

Goals for the weekend;

Evap canister
Sand/prime hood again
Wire up a horn
Some more trim pieces in side the car

Had some time this morning to do the suggested evap canister configuration Josh made more me. Exactly what I needed, no more fuel vapors inside the cabin!

Thanks Josh!

I'll report back if there's any other changes in drive ability and the hiss sound that comes from opening the gas cap.

Upon more driving today, I still have some fuel vapors coming in the cabin. Or maybe it's exhaust now.

I did notice some vac leaks while I was messing with the car this morning. Fixed them. Night and day difference.

Ok, keep us posted CJ.

I am interested to see how the later canister setups are configured with them located in the back of the car. If I can rig something up like that I'd like to do that.

Well that setup I have is still sitting here if you're interested.

After driving it for most of the day and getting on it a couple times I did experience fuel cut. >:(

That's enough for me to only drive her nice if I drive it.

I don't drive it every day because It's not spacious enough for all my tools for work and if I do have a bunch of cap in the trunk the rear tires rub in a turn.

Ok, I appreciate the offer. I need to figure out how it physically mounts though.

I was just about to post that I'm going to be coming up in June. So if it looks like I can make it work, I could pick it up then.

Do you know where it was physically installed/mounted on the car?

Completely forgot you asked that question.

I did look at some images on google and didn't see much, I just know it mounts on the passenger side Tucked up in the bumper area, maybe to the frame rail or right side of the spare tire well.

Update on the 92.

Had to redo the evap system. Something didn't seem right still. Blew the purge valve by hooking it up backwards, got another from Alphius, that one still made a funky noise so I consulted him and he came up with a way to get rid of it. No more vapors in the car at all!

I've been driving it off and on, put about 900 miles or so on it. It's so nice to enjoy something with this much creativity. I really want to do the finishing touches on it, but that will take time. Mike and I have had some conversation about the next motor I want to build for this thing (remember, this engine was just to get the car running) and I'm constantly looking for the parts I want. After all I did accomplish something somewhat crazy and since it works and all the electrical works I know I have something to look forward too.

In the end, I want this to have an EJ227

I've been researching 207 swaps and apparently I chose the correct harness when putting my car together. The bugeye harness is the easiest harness to adapt the v7-8 ecu. It's only a matter of a few extra wires for the avcs.

I will build a monster.

CJ,

I've asked for pics on the USMB for how it's installed. I want to see if there is a harness or it actually bolts to the car to see if I could retrofit it.

Would you mind drawing a diagram for your evap system for others to see how you hooked things up?

There are bolt holes on the canister so I imagine it bolts to something. I'll look at my buddies '15 when I get back to his soft ball game. Should be similar.

Here is how I have my evap set up. It's still only temporary, I will end up not having the canister in the bay. most likely under the battery somewhere.

CJ,

Thanks for the link. That does help a little bit. I guess if I were able to get the bracket and all the associated bit I could maybe make it work.
