Re-tensioned the chain last night. So far so good! Drove about 20 miles last night and another 80 today, no CEL

I should be doing the clutch and flywheel this weekend. Then off to Maximum PSI for subframe reinforcement and LSD swap next week. They work with Nick G too so I'll see if I can get a nice cam tune as well.

Light can still be off and still be off. Best way to check is live on INPA

No problem, I'm glad I could help you get it sorted out. I know how much it sucks with a job that big to be faced with starting over.

It's gonna suck when you have an opn failure from revving like that and all the hard work and $ that went into that engine are junk.... Ask me how i know... But i do know how much fun it is too (with less power than that)
