Phoenix or 5 liter Cola!
The first time fire ups are alway worth recording. Well done!

Outstanding, I love those moments.

I thought you meant as in "she was a showgirl"

I was picturing the Michigan guys all standing around drinking fruity mocktails with umbrellas in, and wearing floral shirts

What a great sound that car has, I even got a ride, thanks AO

A few week back Andrew tried to fire her up but no joy, so we all met up at John's Auto-body shop at 0830 w/ I think everything but a fuel pump.

First thing we did was pull the plugs, and as can be seen one ignition bank was in trouble.

Pulled the Fuel pump fuse and with the plugs out we used a timing light to trace down the issue, however as soon as we switched the key on (not cranking the engine), the timing light was firing ans so was the injectors, sounded just like a failed S4 CPU.

We swapped the CPU's, and ran the same test, and all was now well w/ key on, No sounds, no Timing light flicker/firing, now that's progress.
Crank engine and we had Timing light blinking from both ignition banks !
We installed all new spark plugs and reassembled the intake manifold, hit the key and Varoom!!!

Let her warm up and went for a few rides, the car was shifting, braking and steering straight.
I think it took us all of 45 mins to an hour, so off to Rob Budd's open house at the leather shop we all go.

I tried to upload some pic, but I'm getting an "exceeded quota" notice now
oh well
Edit: re-upped my membership, lets see if that fixes it
