So it's been a while since I had the opportunity to work on my Van at all since I was working overseas for a while, however I do have a small update,
Got the Banks IQ to monitor engine performance, so far so good. Have a couple issues with it but overall works great and it's awesome to be able to read all the engine parameters when necessary. I have had two issues so far with it, first being that the IQ doesn't like to turn on and off with the Key on switch. I have to disconnect it from the OBDII port and re-connect it sometimes 3-4 times before it gets a hard link and starts transmitting engine data. Second smaller issue is there are some bad pixelations on their screen. I called them and they are aware of both of the problems and informed me to just sent it back in for a new one. Not a hug problem but still kinda sucks.
Anyways, I ordered a bunch of parts
-Kennedy Lift Pump
However I just had shoulder surgery and won't be able to install them for a little while. However I did get some new seats and for those I couldn't wait to install them so I did that today...
Here are the two seat bases...
One on the left is for the drivers-side and the one on the right is passenger with 360 swivel.
Here's where the adapter plate bolts onto the seat base...
And then the seat pedestal that I swapped off the stock seats. It's needed to clear the airbag sensors that are underneath the drivers seat, passenger seat not such a big deal but you would be riding low without it!! Lol
Side by side comparo of the seats:
Quick view of the front with the seat pulled, you can see the sensors underneath the drivers seats as well as the seat belt sensor. Which reminds me I had to swap those over onto the new seats. No biggie, pretty simple.
And here's with both seats in and hooked up:
Passenger seat turned 180 and at a 120 to face the driver. I can spin the seats ok but its easier to do it with the passenger door open so doing so while moving won't be possible.
I haven't used them much but so far they are super super comfortable and the arm-rest is real nice after having driven so long without one!
Anyways, that's it for now.
I'm gonna get a little metal work done tomorrow and if it goes well I might paint the van afterwards. I have this stupid idea for a paint job...won't say anything until it's done just in case I chicken out and don't do it!! Lol
