Anyone who wants the COP Adaptors (to make their own coil brackets) please email me today if you can, as I am organizing next production run of these and will make as many as people want to buy. Thanks.

Great news! ! LMS-EFI harness arrived, amazing work Chris does! Very satisfied with the quality of work. Also, my coil mount is day/s away from arriving, last I checked it made it stateside on the west coast the 7th so I should see it shortly Chances are looking good that I can drive the 7 to the gap

Started on running harness through firewall and bay, so far so good.

I had enough room to secure both the Sprint RE and wideband controller within the gutted stock ECU. Aside from ease of troubleshooting in the future, is there any reason I shouldn't have my fuse/relay box where it is in the pic? It fits snug in that location and I believe the kick plate will still fit over it (haven't tried yet) so I figured I'd leave it there.


So far everything has been plug-&-play without any issue. Can barely see in pic but I secured the water temp sensor on the backside of the pump housing under the thermostat, is that correct?


Only a couple of connections left to make. I need to drill/tap a spot in the carb bonnet for the IAT sensor, wire fuel pump and connect O2 sensor. Once coil accessories arrive I should then be able to complete and start the car for the first time in 6 months

Major thanks to the help I had from the locals this weekend, without their help I would have thrown the towel and would have felt committed to driving the daily to DGRR.

After finding and correcting one issue after the other throughout the weekend, with both parts and wiring, we finally got a break today. Today we got it to start and dialed a few things in nicely. Tomorrow I need to clean up a few things and then it'll be ready for more tuning.

Here's a video:

Also, once again I feel defeated and feel that the 7 may not make it! If that is the case I wont be rotorless. .. The KMS4 will be displayed somewhere at the show.

Does it start & run fine with a jump start? If so, sounds like you've got a parasitic electrical load that is draining down the battery over time, as if leaving the lights on. Any new wiring from the EFI setup that is NOT switched (i.e., wired to constant power)? That's the first place I'd look.

it would be unrealistic to expect several aftermarket parts to plug into eachother and work flawlessly on the first attempt without using your head to do any troubleshooting ever.

also, if the issue ends up being your battery or your starter, it probably wouldnt have fired up with a carburetor either.

just remain calm, swap out the battery and/or starter, and get it fired up. if it doesnt start like it did sunday, we'll do some troubleshooting and figure out why. it will be ok

If all you did was run for short spurts, the battery never got recharged 100%. Recharge that
battery and you are probably good to go.

The battery appeared to be bad according to my trickle charger so I bought another. The car cranked better but still no spark. . Eventually the starter went south and luckily for me the local Advance had one in stock.

We tried adjusting the gap between the trigger wheel and sensor, tested voltage to coils, and even attached an OEM CAS to test for spark which gave the same results.

Everything but the ignition appears to function properly. What makes this a mystery is that nothing has changed since Sunday afternoon and now no spark.
