    LoL well that's progress to me. Fireturd used to be that way. Felt so cool that I could one-wheel-peel it into second gear in the rain.

    Why thankyou!

    I think for now I'll just run my clutch fan setup and install my electric fans later. I just want to be driving it again. It's taking me forever to finish it because I got a car back that was MIA with a bad engine for two years. It's taking up most of my time now that it runs again, haha.

    Went to make a video of it running, smoked the battery ground. Literally. Smoke rolling out the hood. Time for a new cable, and time to relocate the ground...

    Hrmm. I've never seen a smoking ground before. What was pulling so much juice?

    the alternator charging or the engine starting would do it. Same current on the + and - side, the one thats shittier will get hot first.

    Since it looks like the battery to body ground smoked, I'm guessing you have either no engine to body ground, or the battery to engine connection was NFG and it was trying to pull from the battery via the battery to body and body to engine connections. Either way, skinny wire connection was probably fine, fat wire, not so much.

    Very bad connection on the main ground. I re-grounded it to where it was when I first bought the car, and it's fine now.
