Which ones are those? in the front and back

add some pics of the AMP wiring, is it screwed on there? with the mount? 👀
I will grab some more pics. The rear is a FS, I liked it because I knew it would clear the sub. The front bar is a Megan, nice low profile that retains the factory mount. I need to modify the top of the factory mount so I can adjust the V3 coil-overs. Alpine AMP is mounted under passenger front seat.

For the first time I had a brake fade while I was driving on a county road with my wife. I almost hit the corner! Scary moment. Brake fluid flush is my next maintenance item.
Must have been having a good time prior to that! Fresh fluid is always a good idea, give pads and rotors a good inspection too while in there

Did my compression test and got decent results.
152, 164, 159, 164
At 500’ elevation with oil temp around 140 degrees.
replaced the two step denso plugs with 95605’s and still no change in performance. Still breaks up around 5k rpm’s and sounds like a gun range with no rules on rapid fire. Back in the garage she goes…
Since it took a while to get cylinder one up to 152 psi maybe I’ll do a leak down test to see if the valves on the ported/built head are seating correctly. Maybe the exhaust valves are passing unburnt fuel into the exhaust causing the pops/backfires and soot all over my garage floor.

Mine usually resets to the day of my cars production, but then will randomly reset to ten days prior which could be the production date of the unit itself. Should be a time stamp on it somewhere.
