  • Love the videos Zack! Though between that low compression and the smoke at the tail pipe, I think you have some refreshing to do internally. Compression should be around 150psi or higher I believe

  • I believe this is the most technical know how I've seen from him ever. I thought you were really good at DIY. Now I have to ask, what kind of training does he have?

  • If you confirmed that you have air, fuel, spark, and combustion; then check your crank shaft position sensor and camshaft position sensors.

  • I have, and only ever had, two passions in my life since I was 8 years old: Computer Programming and Cars. I had to move a few years ago, so I don't have any friends anymore. I would love to be able to get a project car and work on it, but I'm afraid because it will be only me. I have no knowledge to fall back on other than what I have learned online. I purchased a 240sx when I was 17 for my first car, but sadly, I was screwed over. It was the funnest I've ever had. I tend to overthink things, so maybe I'm making it seem more scary than it is. What concerns me most is the suspension - also things that require welding and such... like subframe connectors.
