When you fire two coils at the same time, one during the compression stroke and one on the exhaust stroke, is called "wasted spark". Not uncommon at all. But if the coil isn't designed to be used in that fashion, I can see it causing issues. Another very common problem with conversions like that is dwell timing. I remember the AEM guys having all kinds of issues and misfires. Once they learned dwell timing needed to be changed their issue went away. But with a stock ECU i'm not sure if you can do much with that and wasted spark. Plus the time needed to dial that is could cause your tuner to hate you. But if the car is tuned locally that is a huge advantage. As they can have the car to dial in. Remote tuning makes that much harder.


Looks good, Jim. The color matching will look great under the hood. I have not seen the cross over conversions. I might have to check that out. That should clean up a lot of that mess as well. Hopefully, you don't run into issues with it. But seems that the issues people have had have been addressed.

Things are slowly, but surely coming along! Everything got dropped off to Crown Customs last week Tuesday. Didn’t do anything since then as I was on a little weekend vacation in Houston.

I spent some time in the garage today and got the lay it of the coolant system drained, removed the radiator, AC condenser, and cleaned up some odds and ends. Cannot believe how much room is in the bay right now!

I also pulled off the blower and some of the bracketing. AC delete pulley is en route along with a fresh belt. I pulled the passenger side valve cover and installed the alternator. I realized that I installed the IMRC’s backwards when I did the blower years ago as they are covering the provisions to bolt down the On3 coolant crossover delete.

I love that work is being done. My only question is, why now and not during winter?

Granted I did absolutely 0 things this winter, but any of my jobs are 1 or 2 day ordeals. This looks like the entire car is stripped and not able to haz funnzies

Zero motivation during winter and cold as fuck in the garage.

I was also troubleshooting an issue with the car no being able to rev past 5k and I needed to figure that out on the road. Roads clear of salt allowed me to figure out the issue.
