    In the LS world the symptoms you have are similar to the crankshaft position sensor not working properly.

    I think I have it traced to the relay that powers the coils and injectors, the ECU then switches the ground to pulse them. I think I either didn't wire the power supply and ground to the relay correctly, or the relay is faulty. I went through the datalog and it has good cam and crank position info so I think I am ok there.

    No progress on the Buick yet but I did have some fun with other projects. I worked with my brother to unload his Essex truck and put it into storage. He was working on it for a while but with a growing family he needed more space. The new project was a 1949 Olds, we cleaned it out, and changed out the rear end. His plans are a SBC, 700R4, and air ride suspension. I also worked on finishing the inside of my shop with insulation and drywall. It is a ton of work to do the 16' walls by yourself off a ladder but I am making some decent progress. Winter is coming before we know it so I want to be prepared with insulated walls and a heater.

    Everything is awesome in these posts man, I love it. What's your plan for insulating the ceiling?

    Be brave and strap, insulate and drywall it myself. I am going to build a 8'x8' work platform out of wood (with handrails) on casters that I can move around and be able to reach safely.

    renting scaffolding might be cheaper, have you seen the price of lumber?
