18: ampsig a gogo

I've been playing with ampsig [Ed: website is gone].

I am working on creating my own scheme for it, as well, but I only started last night. So it will probably change somewhat, considering everything meshed and started working mere moments before I crashed. (And that was about 20 minutes past my bedtime, too.)

One disappointing thing is that it seems not to support UTF-8. (Or maybe my POST client macsig doesn't, or more probably neither of them do.) Anyway, as you can see below (in the static image of what my scheme looks like at present) the Japanese that's supposed to read "浜崎あゆみ" is a bunch of silly dots. macsig seems to save to the POST file in MacOS Roman encoding, so I'm assuming it's to blame for the problem. (But then again, when I save the POST file in UTF-8 with correct Japanese in it, the dynamic image doesn't change at all, so it's likely macsig isn't entirely at fault.)

Oh yeah, here's some photos from last weekend and my "wrench dressing" festival.

This is where the turbo is supposed to mate with the down-pipe. Both have been removed, hence you can see through to the transmission and passenger-side front drive-shaft boot

Header/up-pipe heat shield pulled loose (can't be fully removed unless the O2 sensor is removed from the header. I chose to leave it in-place for safety reasons)
