It's only the beginning..
Hey guys, me and a buddy just got done with our HG job on his nonturbo A/T 87, and we started it up. It gargled for a little bit, but it picked up, it went up to 2000 rpms idle in park, so we messed with the idle speed and the distributor timing, we got it down to 1500 in park and 1180 in drive. The main problem is that the header by the 4th valve is GLOWING IN THE DARK. The whole exhaust side of the car is hot as hell, and there is something reddish/brownish coming out of the exhaust before the cat. It's running on 50/50 Toyota Red/Distilled Water. And a Retard's 50/50 mixture of 10w/30 and 10w/40 High mileage Oil. We put about 5.5 Quarts of oil into it after the HG job. I would use the HG FAQ but all the links are down and lead to nothing. Also there is a connector that is on the intake side of the engine that we can't find a home for, its a four prong connector and it is bundled up with three other connectors that lead down to the tranny. This car does not have ABS or TEMS, could it be the connector for the nonexistant ABS? It has no high-end power, says my friend who WOULDN'T LET ME DRIVE IT-- anyways any help would be appreciated. Thanks
