So finally, after 5 days of other stuff on the VRT.... the fabrication begins:
Just a teaser for now tho
Well, here's what's been happening with Dimitri's VRT:
Got it in, and parts started flying off...
So at that point, dis-assembly was pretty much done. Only thing I'll have to take off is the downpipe to weld on another bung for the lugtronics wideband. So, things started to go back on.
First order of business was to change out the stock motor mounts (which were in surprisingly good shape) with BFI's Delrin mounts.
These went pretty smooth, except for the passenger rear mount, which had a seized bolt, so I had to unbolt the whole mount from the motor, and take it out as a whole so I could wrestle the bolt out on the bench.
Nice bolts Dimitri! LOL
After that, bigger injectors went in:
42DD SAI Plug:
ANNNNND, I polished the Intake Mani. I can't not polish a VR manifold
Core support removed and stripped of all that stupid rust that was on it, and repainted That thing really bothered me
AC is completely gone (I'm going to try to get him to put in a non-AC heater core ).
EVAP is completely gone, including that stupid tank in the passenger fender
EGR is gone and deleted
SAI is gone and plugged thanks to 42DD
New VC Gasket
New upper intake mani gasket
So now that all this stuff is done, Lugtronics is going on today, and all the needed plumbing, etc. I'll also be starting on the exhaust this afternoon. It's going to be awesome!!!!!
Gracias. Since this thread seems to have turned into my private car blog, i guess I'll put up some more pics
Freed the muffler from the old piping
and polished it up...why not eh?
2 bungs from 1:
The bevel that I usually run with a butt-joint

Damn dude, you been busy lol
Redid the IC piping...
Sadly, this will be the last time I work on this car, and probably anyone's car in the tri-state, ever. We're moving on Monday...to Utah.
I don't know anyone who sandblasts, sorry.
Zack, you will be back
Not sure yet. Or about the New Milly meet tonight. A lot of stuff going on now and the next 2 weeks for me. If you are lucky, I might grace you all with my presence...
Got them from a TT 225 that a guy went BT on (was going to do a k04 swap) you might have to do custom piping. Maybe atpturbo or cts might have something. I was gonna ghetto rig it lol.
