LOL, I know how that is. To make a long story short I was trouble shooting everything including the AFM, cause I couldn't keep my car going unless I stood on the throttle, even then it was horible, this was after I had finished some other vacuum related problems. I was about to give up and kick my car when I looked down and saw some stupid line disconnected from the intake piping. Hooked it back up and voooom. I could have kissed someone, but it was 1am and nobody was awake.

Glad to hear you are up and runnin again, enjoy the new boosted ride.

Josh

Awesome News

Thats great to hear, i would nto mind doing a turbo application to a 240z myself sometime, but that will be when i'm older and have more money. Now As for mistakes, oh man i swear i can name a 100 right off the top of my head so easily. But honestly (as is josh's case) teh feeling after waiting that week is the best feeling ever period.

Hey Stingray280ZX----teh? I believe the correct spelling would be t-h-e, "the" and that would put you at one hundred and one mistakes...hehe, just kidding my friend, I couldn't resist. If you counted up all the mistakes I made in a single day, I'd bet the total would be in triple digits. Heck, you only get better at this thing called life through mistakes. Seems to me, the only real mistakes are the ones we never notice, or repeat.
Sometimes, when you finally trouble shoot a mistake you've been frustrated over, and it's something really basic, after you wipe the mile wide grin off your oil blackened face, try taking a step back for a moment, and think, "I'm fabricating a turbo 240Z on my own, from junk yard parts, without a manual, or a turbo 240Z for dummies book!" ****, the average guy on the street can't even change the oil in his own car, let alone locate the dipstick!
Nitrouz boy, "your the Mna!"
