Thank you so much, I had been trying to find a way to add a standard sized air filter to my Sprint as the stock style filters just get harder to find.

Been a while since I have updated... Almost 8 months lol. Some major life updates happened since February. For starters, I enlisted in the Air Force as a Hydraulics Maintainer. Shipped to BMT in May and haven't even seen my Sprint since then. :-( Currently stuck 1400 miles away from home, thanks 'ro...

Thanks for all the helpful info. I have replaced the fan temp switch. I bought it from RockAuto.com. and I think it was a turbo specific one, but either the fan or the switch has since died, as my temp gauge has showed over 190 without the fan turning on. When I first installed the new switch the fa...

It's been a while since I last posted, life got in the way. I moved from a part time job/full time college to a full time job at a popular Nationwide Franchise oil change place(you know the one with the red and blue logo), and having a full time income to buy parts is quite nice. I decided it would ...

Thanks for all the info, due to my pay schedule I am really only able to buy parts every 2 weeks. Yesterday I went to the local I Pull U Pull and found some seats that will work with the harnesses the car has. I pulled them from a late 2000s Toyota Celica, and am currently in the process of cleaning...

My dad has a smart funnel and access to a smog machine that we used to check the coolant for hydrocarbons (that would indicate a blown head gasket), and luckily there were none. I have a feeling the water pump theory will check out, and my dad will be checking the flow with a picoscope in his class ...

Thanks for all the help, I did have a faulty temp switch, which I have replaced, but that isn't all of my problem. The fan runs, but my radiator is pretty dented up and it still overheats after the install. The next time my paycheck comes in I will be picked up a new radiator. I am also considering ...

Thanks for the advice, the P.O. installed a A/F gauge on the dash, tapped off of the O2 sensor, so I do have a general idea of my A/F ratio when I am driving. I have not had the chance/thought to see what the gauge shows when I experience the fuel cut, but the next time I take it on a test run I wil...

Thanks for the info, I will definitely look into both the chip and some sort of aftermarket boost control. I don’t know what all sensors are supposed to be on the exhaust, but everything past the downpipe has been replaced with a straight pipe.

Update: I added some photos to the Google album of the aforementioned wiring disaster, as well as the parts I purchased to fix it. I will likely have it running again Monday if all goes according to plan.
