Ghettoraid has made it clear that he lacks the time and the wiring skills to address the issue and given the time it took me to sort out the CoupeGT wiring faults, with a sizable amount of wiring experience, I can't argue with his decision to seek out a specialist to clear the concerns in exchange for his savings account and possibly first-born. I am curious why he is being so secret-squirrel about who the specialist is... unless he is just paranoid Jahennum will dole him in to the SMOG dogs.

Nah, he's got a cat on this one.

And I sympathize with wiring issues. Until this year, my only option was repair (the harness on my Z32 has been NLA from Nissan for a long time), but now I can buy a pre-modded one from wiring specialties and get my kicks that way.

Why does it matter who is doing it? There are like three of you who are bay area people and none of you are "into" cars as far as I know (much less even own vintage toyotas..)

And of course i'm paranoid, I'm always going to be paranoid from now on because of him. If this car were flagged as a gross polluter I'd be spending an extra $2-300 a year on bribes. Our gov't is just that retarded.

So, "gross polluter" is like a blacklist that you can't just fix the car and get off of?

no they'll require that you go to a test-only every time your reg is up for renewal

which is to say... I've never kept a "polluter" long enough to find out if you ever get off the list, but knowing this state you're probably on it for life.

as of right now the car is not on this list

It doesn't particularly matter other than idle interest; I'm on the other coast and as you said, not a Toyota enthusiast. The likes of Razor though is well ingrained into the MR2 culture and even if not local might have some insight on who is getting intimate with your car and if they are the place to be or not. You seem confident in them and at the end of the day, that and the results you gain from it are all that matter.

I'm happy I live in an automotively-liberal state, where you can do just about anything that doesn't compromise safety-functions, and some things that do!

I mean the other thing is ... IF something bad happened or if he screwed up somehow and I posted about it (which of course i would) he'd start getting a bad rep online and it'd be my fault. I went down that road many years ago and talking shit didn't benefit anybody.

A friend of mine had some seriously bad problems with a ricer tuning shop back in the day, I posted about it, they got a lot of shit for it, then they didn't want to do repairs to my friends' car because the shit had already been talked! Damage done. Positive feedback doesn't spread as quickly as shit talkery.

Like that has anything to do with driving. Almost all cars with giant subs are not great drivers, and if they are they are slightly worse for having all that crap in there.

Case in point: where would you put that crap into your Mr2?

Loud stereos are fun for different reasons, but the novelty wears out fast. Having to maintain a constant vigil for passing police was fucking gay... and because I had such a chitty system it only really sounded good when cranked to 11

I had a 10" wedge box in my 93... No room for it in this one because of where the amp is located. I had it in the frunk in my first one, this time its mounted exactly where I'd put a wedge.

Optionally you can also replace the storage cubbies behind the bottom pad of the seats with tiny sub enclosures which were optional from Toyota, they'd probably take a very small 6" sub or 6x9's or something lame like that.

It's extra weight, and takes up valuable space inside a small car. Most of the time the ricer/niqqer crowd goes above and beyond the call of duty (or sanity) with dual 12s or something equally unnecessary considering the total amount of cabin space. "Can I hear it from outside" becomes more important than what it actually sounds like inside. In essence you're only "impressing" others like you, and annoying everyone else

edit: been there, done that, inc. dual 12 JLw3s in band pass feeding off a 750w mono RF

Damn... my hopes were lifted then dashed to pieces.

Engineer here at work was like "oh its probably your cold start injector" then he explained how these injectors are basically unregulated and all control is handled AT the injector, it would explain why fuel is burping out into all four cyls evenly (all four of my injectors failing simultaneously wouldn't make sense)....But nope. Gen 3's and up do not have one of these injectors =(

You've managed to get the injectors wired to constant positive. This isn't actually a huge deal. The ECU grounds the injectors, which completes the circuit and allows the solenoid to open.

You've still (probably) got injector control, but you should probably go through the loom and get the injector harness connected to the right positive.

Here are some pics I dug up of the bastardized wiring I faced with my Coupe GT.


This is where the 2.3L DOHC Turbo engine harness (includes ECU wiring) was spliced into the interior/dash harness. Beyond the MANY loose wires, the sad thing is that there are only about 12 wires that need to go from the engine harness to the interior harness...


I don't even know.... but it looked like a fire hazard.


After cutting the relay out:


New engine/ECU harness installed for testing before reduction (Hence being stowed in the rain tray area)


Bare essentials to run a Bosch Motronic v2.3 drivetrain:


All in all, I went from 13.2-13.6vdc+ at the battery and anywhere from 7.1-8.6vdc+ at various sensors and test points, to less than 0.5vdc+ voltage drop between any test point and the battery. Car ran with the new harness, really well actually. With the advent of selling the epic barn where I stored and serviced my vehicles as well as (at the time) buying a home that may not even have had a single-car garage, I didn't have time or space to finish trimming out the unneeded wiring and put the interior back together, so I let it go to another Audi enthusiast in the area. Hindsight, I should of kept it as garage space is surprisingly now bountiful and it would have been nice to follow-through with my plans for that car.

Another update - - he thinks the root of the problem is my busted ass alarm system that has never actually worked properly (I don't even have a fob.) He thinks there may have been an improperly installed remote starting system and that's what's causing the ECU to activate the injectors while the key is out

He's gonna tear it out and see if that resolves it.
