Ok so it's been a while since my last update, I got all the speakers installed courtesy of my housemate(carfi installer for BestBuy), the speakers were all Alpine Type R, components up front, 5x7's in back, and a single 12" sub in the trunk.  Needless to say the sound is exponentially better than before.  I've got a Vit tune on the car now, it feels a little better than NGP0 but I've not gone to a dyno to see where I'm at though it has kind of interested me to see the change.  All parts are in for the head swap but I've not gotten the time, space to do it, or money for custom tuning as of yet. That should be around soon enough, hopefully the install will go down sometime before school starts in August and is delayed indefinitely again.  I broke/wore out my axle again in May, after replacing the axle and retaining the halfshaft, the bearing in the half finally went bad and wore out that end of the axle as well, meaning the lifetime warranty didn't help for anything as the halfshafts are NLA thru Ford. I replaced the ps axle with the 3rd gen sedan passenger axle that doesn't use the halfshaft but also comes with the lifetime warranty, problem solved.  Also I was able to finally get centercaps for the SSR wheels, at $35 apiece they weren't cheap, but if thats all I need for a forged set of 17's to look good I consider it money well spent.

did you change the cam sensor housing? the sensor itself isn't the important thing to change, its the metal piece  that holds it

They're fun and cheap to work on, where's it hit at?

There's no noticeable difference between a zxtuner and kami header, since kami's the only one on the market it's your route to go. The gude is rare at best and a real mofo to fit. Plus its really vulnerable to denting on the lower primaries

A rear disc setup with stainless lines and ceramic pads is all you need as long as you're n/a or a small turbo. They'll lock up crappy tires(I know) and almost do the same with stickier 205 series tires

$20 shipped, its the small wiring harness that plugs into most if not all sensors on the actual motor

I'd try a different maf if unplugging it made no difference. A zx2 idles rough with ac on at idle, it's just a fact so I wouldn't worry too much on that part. If the o2's were faulty you'd get a code specifically for them. the iac is an expensive part that i wouldn't replace unless i was certain that it was the cause

it doesn't require anything, it'll just be an extra plug

those arent on the actual engine harness. the only thing I can think of is that a 98 will have a extra sensor on the fuel rail that later years do not

Took a 4.6L tb apart, it's what I'll be using with the frim. Also took apart a stock zx2 tb, as you can see it'll be a vast improvement
