    What's your compression? the PC680MJT is a 220CCA battery, which, yes brand new will do the job. But you hear all these guys talking about "Make sure you keep it charged or it wont start your car." is a bunch of BS. Its a gel battery, it will stay charged fine on its own. The reason it won't start your car is because it is VASTLY under-rated for most of us.

    Did you parallel or sereies the resistors. Series you will get 6k +/- from 4 1.5k resistors. But parellel you will only get .375 or there about depending on the +/- range but close the that number. Which are you looking for?

    Actually a strut is the alternet when it comes to coilover suspensions as it plays double duty in mounting the upper part of the suspension also. A true coilover is only a shock and spring and was introduced long before the strut. Oh sorry to but in Rendon but damn nice job on the car. Cant wait to see it in action.

    Josh, car is looking great! Glad to see it's up and running and you can enjoy it now... The PC680 is rated at 170cca from Odyssey... http://www.odysseybattery.com/battspecs.html

    So, I'm not sure if you'd have any issues with it. I have been running a PC925 for a few years now and it has been really good and I have a pretty decent stereo too.

    No Josh, the 925 is a bit shorter in height, but probably double the width.

    Re: Rendons Offical A To B series thread!!!!

    Little update. As you know I'm using my stock pump which is not enought for high revs I got a habit getting in it an just dont want to risk damaging nothing so I put her up for the winter early.

    Going to install a fuel pump relay kit an getting a fuel pump 255lph both from xenocron . Putting the fuel pump relay would give me full 14 volts which not only would I get true voltage to the pump but also prolong the life of the pump by supplying it with the voltage it was suppose have. Ill do a how to on that so for those that want to have the info an pics needed.

    I tested the power output which I was getting 11.35v (when I had a no start) cranking an cranking an finally figured it out. it was my pump . So I think that reading was from the battery Beening low plus it's in the back .

    I'm also putting the battery back up front just don't like the setup I have.

    Not doubting it. I meant the dyno isn't that much... I'm just a sucker for shit like that. I want more vids, pics, dyno, and shit.


    You sticking n/a, or boosting later on?

    Seems like a have a ground issue. When I have lights on heater going an stereo going its fine till I stop then it idle fine then drop then pick up then drop stumble then pick up. This was going in with my a20 as well I taught it was just the motor. Need to do a voltage drop an see what's going on. I have good grounds. Harness ground is on the intake runnier . That's the know ground I think that is shitty.

    Re: Rendons Offical A To B series thread!!!!

    Performed a voltage drop. I had a good ground. the engine bay harness ground wasnt great. was getting .2 which wasnt up to my standards lol. moved that ground to the alt bracket an put valve cover ground to the strut tower. best ground ever.

    fixed my rear sensors and no more lamp out light in dash.

    Replaced fuel sender unit with a used one and same issue with the bouncy fuel needle. Ill just leave it lol.

    Can a moderator sticky this in the general engine swaps? I believe this is a good thread that qualifies. Josh has updated his first page to include everything he used to make the swap possible. It is also a very current swap.

    I/H/E, B16 mani, delta 272, OBD1....etc
