I fixed it!

So previously the alternator was only putting out around 12 volts no matter the rpm. I played around with F and L wires, but that didn't fix anything. Then I stumbled across a post of a suzuki forum mentioning that the CS 120 alts (Saturn alts) required a ground wire to the ground stud. The Jay Racing kit I had, I assumed would ground the case. So I double checked with my multi-meter, and nope. No continuity from the alt case to the ground wire on the battery! I added a #10 wire between the stud and my star ground at the block and viola, 14+ volts at idle! No more E9 errors on the O2 and the car sounds much better!

It's cold out and I'm having difficulty starting the car, with e85. I read I need to increase the enrichment tables? At least 25%, maybe more. I need to read some more and then try again. Also I need to find a good multi gauge set for oil, temp and boost. Most of the gauges I find are Oil, Temp and Pyrometer, so not exactly ideal.

Unfortunately, during the ignition/timing process the engine tried to run backwards a few times and I damaged a section of the flywheel. I'll need to pull my trans and put a new ring on it. It's a brand new Fidanza aluminum wheel too, sigh...

I really should take some more recent pics. It's roughly like the one in my profile, but red instead of black.

Just got some heim-joint tensioners from Amazon today and I plan on using them to support the upper half of the intercooler. Pics tomorrow, weather permitting. I need to get to work on the new battery box/hold down too. It will be part of the same structure I think.
