As far as I know, the transmission wire connections are the same (as long as you're sticking with the same transmission; a340e, w58, r154). I can't say that with 100% certainty, but I can't say I've...

Coolant overflow should not be getting coolant in it until the cooling system pressure exceeds the cap spring pressure (16 PSI, I believe). Verify your cap is opening at the correct pressure and not...

I'm not sure how much dex to put in a dry power steering system, I can't imagine it's much more than a quart though. Be sure to turn the wheel from lock to lock as you're filling it up, that should...

It's generally considered that after 7 revisions to the N/A "M" series engines (that's why it's a "7M" engine), there is little improvement to be had without going forced induction.

I'm confused about what you're saying regarding the head gasket. Did you take the cylinder head off and replace the bead gasket? What did you put the make your own gasket stuff on?

I reread your last post, what type of intercooler pipes do you have? Are they v-band style, do they use silicone couplers, or are they something else?

I really don't, at low rpm and idle all the mods still don't really amount to anything more than stock, and its definitely within the capabilities of the stock fuel system. Until you build boost,...

My first thoughts on this is that there is an intercooler coupler not completely connected or something else causing a massive vacuum leak, and that's why you're idling poorly.

I'd check first to see if you can narrow down what part of the engine you see the leaking at. If I couldn't determine that, then I look at the oil drain plug and oil filter, I've found those loose on...
