That next-to-last picture of your passenger-side quarter window is interesting. From that angle, the louvered quarter window looks like an open sharks mouth full of teeth!I went to my very first cars and coffee today. About 20-30 cars from 9am-12. There was a Maclaren, and old Porsche Carrera, some Teslas, a VW Thing and a Bug, and an old jalopy car, plus modern muscle. It was nice to get out and hang with other cars and owners, instead of just me and my car in the garage. I deleted most of the 40 pics after posting them to Facebook, but here's a few with my car in them.:

Well that’s not good to hear. I thought you said that you just wanted reliability and dependability and didn’t care about speed/power anymore....?I'm seriously considering removing the FI and reinstalling the single side draft set up I had before. This car is now so boring to drive. My previous SSD was originally tuned for my original used stock 2.4(the yellow engine), then I had the engine rebuilt to 2.5 with bigger valves and just swapped the set up over and didn't have to change anything about the tuning and both engines ran great and powerfully. This stock 2.4 Motronic set up is slooooooooooow and totally uninspiring. I'm kicking myself right now for selling my RallyBob locked plate dizzy with Pertronix III. If I had that I could remove the FI manifold and unpower the FI and install the dizzy and SSD set up in one weekend and start it up to see if it works better. I wouldn't do this swap until late Fall/Winter, after driving season around here is over.
Anyone have a locked plate dizzy they aren't using?
Not even one little comment?No comment...
That’s what it sounds like.There must be something wrong with your Motronic, take the car to a chassis dyno to see what's going on. I had a bone stock Omega A with a C24NE and an AR25 automatic tranny, and it did certainly not bog when accelerating and it felt adequately quick for a +1300kg car.
