Absolutely fucking not. Load Diy autotune's base map and go from there.

This is ASSuming you know enough to tune yourself.

Thank you! You confirmed my doubts. I haven't tuned a car yet but I'm confident and willing to learn I know enough about tuning to question those "safe to drive" maps at least

The AFR target table isn't the end of the world, unless you're using autotune to get to those targets, then it's bad. That timing map is thoroughly WTF-worthy, though.

That's a "fire up to make sure shit runs" map, and nothing more.

I was getting flashbacks to TDR.

That looks like a Gary map.

From what you said I am assuming that it is the alternator belt. Did you loosen the bolt on the alternator pulley to let it move and get a lot more play. If ss the old belt should slip off and the new one should slip on.

Were they both properly adjusted when the pads were last changed?

If you have power and it's turning over then sounds like fuel to me, like an old fuel filter or something like that.

Could also be a bad spark plug.

Any differences between when it takes a long time and when it doesn't? Like the motor is cold / has been sitting vs when it is warm? Or the weather outside maybe? There are a lot of factors that could be causing this to happen.

It's pretty sporadic. it has happened when the car is warm and cold.

I have a couple theories:
1. bad fuel pressure
2. afm not opening long enough to turn on the fuel pump because vacuum leak (not likely but?)
3. somehow correlated to the fact that it doesn't run very well, a little low on power? makes me think back to vacuum leaks and fuel pressure.

When was the fuel filter last changed? If it's been awhile, try replacing it and se if it helps. Also, when was the last time you did a tune up?

yes. without the computer, the light and buzzer won't be able to function IIRC. I had an airbag light on my NB for have the stock seat belts removed and taking out the computer eliminated that issue.

an easier method would be installing a passenger side airbag delete tho

Did plugs and wires last year, timing belt at the same time. I have never touched the fuel filter on this car, however. Will order one asap. One of my dudes suggested a coil pack because I know it arced one time when it got wet, which would be along the lines of my rough running issues.

As an aside, change your spark plugs every other oil change with copper NGKs. Your motor will thank you.

Get that fuel filter. It's worth it to do before dropping money on a coilpack...and even if it doesn't fix it, it's still worth it lol

If I want to rebuild my shifter, is this kit plus the bronze bushing and both boots the best way to go?

It's a good choice, and the cheapest including a good bushing.

Yes and no. I would get the bronze bushing from Rev9. The rest of the kit can be purchased from 5xRacing or Rosenthal.

Here's why. If you look at the month/year compatibility chart for NBs on both sites you'll notice a discrepancy between the sites. In theory they should be the same. I got the 5xRacing bushing and despite having a month/year NB within the range they specified for compatibility, it didn't work. I had to reuse the OEM plastic bushing while I waited for a bushing from Rev9.

Do NOT get an aluminum bushing under any circumstances.

Rev9 has been around a long time and my guess (key word) is that his compatibility chart is more accurate than 5xRacing's.

$102?? Jesus Christ. Yes that would be the way to go but I would just get the MR SS kit if I were you. It comes with all the rebuild parts and a delrin bushing...can always snag the bronze bushing on the side.

Edit: As Stoly said, the fitment information is off. You need to confirm whether you have the small or large 6 speed shifter.

Or that your car even has the right 6spd in it... Buddy got the "wrong" shifter from 5x Racing last month. Turns out it was exactly what he ordered, but his car didn't have the original transmission.

Well considering that Rev9 wants $45 shipped for the bushing vs 5x racing $30 for it, is it worth the $15 difference if it is for a normal 5 speed or did those have some discrepancies as well?

Are there any advantages in feel from a bronze bushing vs a good condition plastic one or is the difference longevity?
