What's better than having three non running projects? Four of them! 

Watching roadkill this morning seemed quite fitting... 

No need to tell me I'm dumb here as I am well aware of that fact

I remember back when these were still new ish. Went for a ride in a mates one, before taking him for a ride in my 13b rx3. After the turbo car, mine felt about as fast as a ke70 wag with a 4k.

The radio has got Jonny written on it. Looks like part of it is missing? I'll check it out later.

hahaha, those battery "terminals" are amazing. Sounds like progress is happening quickly.

There is one, but doesn't seem to do anything. Maybe though. Don't remember this being an issue last time I was tinkering.

Turbo timer somewhere hidden?

That's the first thing I looked for. There is one but connected to the switch side of the ignition switch hence un plugging it :) We suspect it could be a relay sticking on. If you pull 30a maxi fuse in the engine bay it'll Turn everything off and it will stay off

but with more thinking there could be another turbo timer hiding somewhere.

It's less bad than vice grips.... And I was on fuel pump cintril duties 

We kept finding issues that could cause the flooding/no start faults. Hopefully they are ironed out for now. All the injector plugs need replacing as the retaining clips are gone and while I'm at it ill probably re tape and tidy the loom

Easy way to check without searching would be to turn it off and wait 1, 3 or 5 minutes.

Ain't got that much patience mang!

/might actually do that while testing fuel pump wiring. A quick google says there is a fuel pump relay. Perhaps that's got burnt contacts... If so I'll bypass it for now but leave it connected so the ecu is happy

I have a Hayes manual for these. Let me know if there are any pages you want scanned etc.

Are you going to have the injectors cleaned and tested?

Yeah they ideally need a proper clean & test. When I get it to Auckland I'll pull then out again 

Of scans of wiring diagrams would be great please and thank you 

I got a picture of the radio for you too
