None of the wires were extended, just unplugged and re-routed then zip-tied in place. The fuse box and diagnostic box are still very easily accessible and the car should still be very easy to diagnose/work on. I've heard nightmares about trying to find an electrical problem on cars with a tuck so I wanted to avoid that. On to the pics!

Good work there. I did a mild tuck on my Integra for the same reasons. Looks like you inspired me to do the same on my Miata.

Jrad- I don't think the AFM is supposed to be mounted like that. Because of the flapper door it will have issues running properly pointed down. It's needs to be mounted horizontally like it is from the factory.

Probably best to just do a u-turn and make it a cold side until you get a standalone to delete the afm.

Please clean the junkyard paint off your intake manifold haha. Other than that it's looking good! When I removed the charcoal canister I removed that little bracket that holds the lines completely and just bent down the hard line and attached it to the hose coming up. All of the lines from it are now completely hidden.

Alright I've run into most likely a easy problem . The cars been down for atleast 2 months just put some fuel in the tank yesterday and attempted to start it an i got nothing . The car will crank like a champ but no start . I get fuel ,spark ,and from what i can tell the timing should be on (wasn't messed with) . I'm thinking it could be a ground that i've forgotten to hook up or installed in the wrong place . I'm going to check for this today when i get off work.Anyone else have this problem before .Car ran fine before the tuck , I don't recall extending any of the wires to the sensors on the motor.

If spark fuel and timing are good I don't see why it wouldn't start.

May be a stupid question, but could it be the starter? Or even the clutch switch?

I'm a n00b but I'm just trying to help.

Honestly my only thought is I'm missing/bad ground. I'm going to check and clean all of them tonight . Only other thing I could think of is my tps sensor isn't talking to the ecu . Idk today is a whole new day shit happens.

It won't crank if it's the clutch switch I'm pretty sure.

When you turn the key on does the check engine light come on at all? If it doesn't turn on, then your ECU isn't getting power... But typically you won't get spark in that situation...

I am not sure what you're implying. Are you talking about the VC vent or you talking about the air box snorkel?
