  1. Find a glass place that caters to Semi trucks. They will be accustomed to working with flat glass, and will have the right laminated material available. Randall
  2. I'm re-reading all your clues, and am confused. You are using a stock sensor and Fidanza flywheel, yet your ECU is set to 36-1. Is your sensor on the flywheel or on a 36 tooth wheel (minus one) on the crankshaft?
  3. Are you sure you have the right sensor housing for your car? The Zetecs had different housing for automatic vs. manual transmissions. See here, for example http://www.locostbuilders.co.uk/viewthread.php?tid=66152
  4. Sold, pending funds transfer.
  5. It's still available.
  6. I don't have my notes handy, but from memory, they're from a '89-ish VW. Randall
  7. I've got the same height/long torso issues. In a standard Birkin S3, the windshield frame is about in the middle of my visual field. I solved the issue by cutting the floors and installing dropped pans so the bottom of Birkin's plastic seat shells could be below the original floor. Now I look through the middle of the windshield and have no issues with head versus weather hood/roof. I'm not especially near you, but my car's for sale and I'd be happy to let you sit in it. Randall
  8. I set the rev cut-out at 7200rpm in the Emerald. Also, I forgot to add that I have a set of corner weighting scales available with the car. Randall
  9. I never thought this day would come, but it is time to sell my Birkin. I just don't get enough opportunities to drive it here on the North Olympic Peninsula. This is a 2001 BIY component built car with 23,000 miles. I've been its caretaker for over ten years, and upgraded nearly every system in the car. When initially tuned, it made 178 HP on the wheel dyno. Sadly, I've never tracked this amazing car. $26,000/OBO Engine: ZX3 Zetec block Ford Racing Head Crower stage 3 cams Eagle Rods Probe 10:1 pistons CFM 65mm billet throttle body High output Bosh injectors Ra
