That's good news!  I was wracking my brains the whole rest of my drive last week and couldn't think of anything else to try replacing

If I can put a few hundred more miles on it, I'll be happy. But so far so good.

Not gonna lie - every time I saw this thread pop to the top of "latest topics" I was worried that the problem was back!  That's a pretty weird way for an ECU to die, but at least you've freshened up everything else along the way!

That is true, I have been sorta dreading driving it. Last 300 miles has been watching wideband and gauges and torque pro like a hawk. 

Honestly fustrated the ECU took a dump, but guess I can now take it to the Dyno for Dyno tune action.

Confession:  I've sat here and replayed that exhaust sound clip a bunch of times and it hasn't gotten any less enjoyable :)

Brakes done, other side of brakes has a new wheel cylinder, and a quick bleed fixed it. 

Front end re assembled with new lights and bulbs.

Test drove around 30 miles over the weekend. 

Mounted the vaccum block up nice and also cleaned up vac hoses some more. Also verified overboost protection works.

Rebuilt all the window regulators, that's the most time consuming and fustrating job I have ever done. 

Junk junk junk junk junk 

Thankfully the other light iris car has a home. 

Which light iris car? The restored, or the new?

Spent the evening with the omni since it decided it wanted to start loading up on fuel at idle. 

Not sure what's going on, but it's fustrating. I does the same thing no matter the logic module. Fuel pressure was within spec. No vaccum leaks we can find

Took a absolutely filthy white trash to run some errands and get dinner. Running good, loosing a little coolant somewhere, but just need to do some testing. 

Went to pickup the only new pickup for the omni and opened the box and it was used and damage..... 2nd used part from the part store this week.
