Turned out it was a damaged wire. Repaired and test driven with no lights coming up!

Which wire? ABS sensor or the modification?

that's cool.. I've seen some of our local clubs D2's have that issue, wires replaced all the way back to the SLABS ECU..

I did about 100 miles today on gravel roads. Not one dash light or code came up!!
I still have not received my new gas cap or tstat.
I cleaned the existing gas cap and filler area well today and clicked it on tight about 20 times. No Evap codes yet. Im confident it ls the fuel cap. If the code comes on repeatedly, it stops when I re-tighten the cap for a few days.
My brakes were squeaking after my rear brake job, so new front rotors and pads are on order. Ebc slotted rotors and Akebono pads

hehe, 2 days in a row no dash lights!

However,
i decided to order a new waterpump today. ill throw that in with the thermostat this week if its here on time. with the engine running so much cooler in low range gears and high rpms, im convinced my high(er) temps are also due to low volume water flow.
my driver a-piller trim also came loose. so i ordered new clips and rivets to reattach it.

i got the new water thermostat in tonight.
before temps:
idling - 212-215
coast down hill - 203-205
average driving - 217-221

after temps:
idling - 190-195
coast down hill - 183-186
average driving - 188-195

thats a huge improvement imo..
FYI it was a motorad thermostat that WAS in the car, now its genuine. i dont know what the temperature of motorad in the car was though. car seems to run alot quieter and smoother -or atleast that's what im telling myself.

I’m not sure, look on their website.


My front output shaft seal (transfer case) started puking oil out today all over exhaust. Makes for a stinky ride. New flange seal kit on order.
