Recently picked up a 97 GSX in pretty rough shape and plan on rebuilding it to a clean DD/AutoX machine. As an example here is a pic of the brakes I took off today
(Yes, the rotor on the left is split in half and the pad is worn past the metal)
Although it is pretty rough it did come with a nice list of goodies including: big 16g, SAFCII, LC-1 Wideband, a bunch of greddy goodies, and adjustable shocks all around to name a few.
So anyway to catch up on the things I've done up to this point, I started by stripping the interior and getting rid of everything I deemed unnecessary and all associated paraphernalia. This included A/C, Heat, Airbags, rear wiper, windshield sprayer stuff, electric antenna, and all the controls/wiring/vents etc. I ended up with a nice big pile of trash and I'm sure I lost over 100 pounds of weight as well
Interior assembly is coming together slowly as I don't have everything I want for it just yet. Got some new black carpet, a 3 gauge pillar pod, and a few necessary gauges. Eventually ill get a touch screen radio, fiberglass some gauges and switches where the a/c controls used to be, make a fiberglass cover for the passenger airbag spot, etc but that's on hold for more essential things like idling and not stalling at every stoplight!!
So today I checked out the IAC and TPS which both seem to be bad.. IAC reads 42.5 ohms on all 4 spots where it should read around 30 ohms, and the TPS is good when throttle is static but when I move the throttle the TPS doesn't read anything.. Those are the only two things i've checked related to the idle/stall problem but we shall see if they fix the problem. Almost forgot I got rid of cruise control and am in the process of canning the a/c lines in the engine bay as well. This pic is pretty close to how it was when I got it. again
