  1. Number Tew's First House Build Thread

    Alright so a little update on the house, post storm – we finally got the rest of the Boss’ stuff from her apartment over here, so right now it is like a small bomb went off in the house, but it is helping us sort out and get a bit more organized and look more like a home! With that said, here are some pics! So, first things first, this little one is always very helpful with projects. Enter: Gizmo! But seriously, something that has been taking up a ton of space in the kitchen for months now, has been an over range microwave still in its box sitting on the kitchen floor. At first, I thought I would need an electrician because I needed to move the range wiring into the cabinet with an outlet, but I gained more confidence in myself. So, we set forward with the task! I removed the hood, and luckily there was already a giant hole in the wall. Not really sure why, but it made it easy to pass wires up to the cabinet. Here is the box installed in the cabinet. Woo! The craziest thing is, if you use a drywall saw to cut up your cabinet, and you push with any amount of force, that saw can move forward, quite a bit. So, then you make idiot inexperienced mistakes, like this one: I’ll fix that up soon enough, for now, this will have to do: Anyhow, back to the microwave: The unboxing... Here it is all installed. The tile made it a bit more difficult because drilling through it takes a century. I have it held onto the little track with 4 bolts, plus the two up top. The ones in the cabinet really do all of the holding, the wall track is more of a guide than anything. Found out my cabinet base is ¾” or thicker, so I am very confident in its ability to hold. Next, we finally got her computer desk over here. She’s been working by laying down on the ground to use her computer, so this was definitely much needed: Excuse the mess on my side (the single monitor side lol) Hard to tell in this pic, but I moved the network stuff onto the book shelf for now. That helped to neaten up some of the spaghetti running into my wall. We also brought over her TV and stand, this went into our spare bedroom. I think we made good use of it! Also, I’m not sure if I had posted this or not, but here is the TV hanging on the wall. I am still waiting on some help to get an outlet installed behind the TV. Once it cools down a bit, I will get up in the attic and finish running speaker wire to the rear speakers, and officially check of the surround sound box. I will probably be adding some exhaust fans to the entertainment center, just for longevity and in the event we get anymore electronics in there. Again, sorry about the mess, I have another shelf to match the one on the left, but am waiting to finalize the entertainment center a bit more before putting it together: Lastly, I don’t remember if I pointed these guys out or not. Found them in the Keys on our vacation. Just thought they were really neat hand-made pieces. Plus, I love Wall-E! Thanks for looking!!

    Beautiful car, if anything

    I have definitely fallen in love with Flickr and their app lol. Once you get it you will too.

    We may try that then. Think it could be causing the lean code??

    I definitely love the wood flavored tiles. And yes, STWC4L

    We needed to jump on it because they are going up and up and up in price right now. I am not against pulling the injectors, I don't think it's too hard to do. I put some seafoam in with the gas, and have ran a little more than a tank of gas through it. Right now it is giving a lean code, and that's more nerve-racking than random misfire codes.

    Tile/wood is not something I am looking forward to. Luckily when I bought the house they put in fresh carpet, so I am good to save for a little bit! Also, I love how I invented a name so many years ago, and it is still lovingly used in all aspects of your life lolol
  10. Photo hosting

    I use Flickr and love their app. I have it set to auto upload over wifi, then when I get on the computer I change the pics from private to "friends" or whatever, and start copying bb code links. Also, you can download an add-on for chrome to make it show the photobucket pics.

    lol!! Seriously?? I see this:

    Dude that ended up coming out sick! Is that a signed Ben Stiller??? Also, people don't realize just how long it takes to hang up pictures if you want to do it with any sort of accuracy and symmetry. Can be a serious pain lol. Great job!

    I am resetting the ECU this morning (pull a couple fuses and wait) and then doing an idle reset procedure (run up to temp, turn on a/c, wait 5 mins, turn off a/c, wait 5 mins) to let the car get some fuel trims figured out.

    October 11 and 12, 2017 Alright next item to address was the Oxygen sensors. I got a pair of Denso units to replace whatever was under the car before. AC Delco sensors are apparently just rebadged Densos. The sensor wires were a little short for the long tubes, but we addressed that with extensions and some zip ties. It’s all good now. (Sorry for the blurry picture. It looked clear when I took it!) Next on the list was a set of MSD Super Conductor 8.5 mm wires. These went on fairly easily and they look nice. When I changed the oil I installed a Fumoto drain valve with a 3/8 nipple. This will make oil changes a bit cleaner and easier. From this angle the nipple looks like it is touching the collector but there is a fair amount of space between them. Next up, I got the MAF all cleaned up. I used Q-Tips and rubbing alcohol to get the bulk off, then I used some CRC MAF cleaner for a final spray down. All of the contacts were black to start off, so, huge improvement there. Next I decided to clean the throttle body. On some vehicles I have owned there has been a tremendous change in throttle response just from doing this. As you can see, it was pretty dirty. Next up was swapping the KNN filter for a nice new paper one. These cars are apparently very susceptible to issues related to oiled air filters. No problem, these are a cheap easy fix. We also went ahead and installed some locking lugs, because well, for those who don’t know, the boss lady’s wheels were stolen years ago. Coincidentally that is what led us to meeting one another, but we don’t want it to happen again! So after all of this, I used the Torque app again to check for misfires. Nearly identical results to what was happening before: I switched the number 2 and 6 coil pack, but this supposed miss stays at number 6. The injector sounds fine, but I did not undo the rail and start moving injectors around. Under load (not idle) the miss goes away according to Torque. On our first test drive, we now get lean codes and a random miss, but the car seems to be running much better. I bet once we drive around a bit after this tune up it will do some sorting out on its own. I will also be getting some more fresh gas for it tomorrow which should help things a bit. So, that’s where we are for now!
