I don't think that set-up would stop it from moving. remember, even the slightest movement is enough to upset the timing.

If you want to try that route, I'd suggest an L-shaped flat bar,...

My car came with an aftermarket backup camera. IIRC, they ran the cable through the hole where the shifter cable goes through. If not that, there's a wiring harness there too. They both go under...

Quad's set-up is a little more complicated than JgKram's. This is my understanding of how the existing setup works:

Pin 86 on the relays have constant 12volts. Pin 85 goes to the ECU which...

The O2 sensor socket may flare out and round out the sensor if the sensor is really stuck. Cut the wires and use a deep-well socket or a 7/8" box wrench, if you have room. Use the O2 sensor socket...
