It doesn't kill the car at idle and it runs fine with the ac off most of the time, but i think it may be related to the issue i have where the car shuts off when i put it in reverse. Also, sometimes i try to start the car and it cranks but doesn't start. If i retry it a second time it always starts up. Today though the a/c was working fine, it was as soon as i put it on full blast at the coldest setting that it died.

Ah, I see. The A/C is mainly an on/off system. The blower could cause a problem, though.

I think I finally fixed my clutch issue. lol

Finished the install yesterday but the damn thing wouldnt bleed. Messed with the slave cylinder today and it bled fine now. Going to test drive it in a sec, then deal with the exhuast. (It's split at the muffler so I'm just going to take it out. Also taking the front spoiler off to paint.

At somepoint I have to take it to get smogged and my permit ran out yesterday.

D'oh on the permit expiring, though. I've had to get a few. Annoying, but if you're nice to the DMV people, they give you another month permit.

I don't think they are allowed to do that anymore. Everyone has told me 1 day only.
