I'll figure it out, just need time to test some stuff. Hopefully mid-week I'll get a little time.

Tiny update: haven't done jack to fix my 5k cutout problem since the roads have been nasty. I'll be testing the CPS and CTS this weekend, and if those test ok I guess I'll replace the fuel pump...its odd if it is the fuel pump because it doesn't make any noise at all, but we'll see.

On a better note, I just bought this:

Needs a little love but its a huge improvement over the ugly ass airbag wheel. 350mm with a 70mm dish.

I think that would be far beyond my sewing skill level, lol.

It's not hard at all really! You can do most of the prep work before and the actual sewing on the wheel is just about keeping it tight :D

Sadly, I'm probably good enough that I could do this. I'm pretty decent at sewing.

I think I may have found my problem...

it actually Ohm'd out good, but when I moved the wire around the reading would go wacky. Either way it needs to be replaced so we'll see if it solves my problem.

The nice thing about a stripped down race engine is that it really is easy to swap it out. I'm ordering the new one tonight so hopefully we get some more rain over the next week so I can test drive it next weekend.
