Dude...someone needs to come over and beat you with some wire loom. Please, for the sake of everything 12V DC, put those wires in some loom!!!

Here's my 2.5 at the peak of it's performance...lol....I later realized I was only getting such awesome gas mileage because I was missing half of the engine;

Better than it did N/A, but I am still waiting on a tune so it is really rich and won't run below 2000rpm.

The tune should be in in a couple days, I will post videos when I get it. I will probably just make a new thread instead of posting them in the build thread.
