Manual HKS bleeder valve set @ 20 psi on 93 Pump , daily'd everyday all day ....
But when it gets terrestrial out there, I've had it to 25....
thinking turbo went pop
time for some new rods and bearings. i'm thinking SKAT
So I used some real fine emery cloth on the crank. Looks really good. Gonna check with plastigauge today when the bearing get here. Might be able to save this after all. Time will tell.
There are lot of sweet builds in here. Hopefully I'll be able to share some pictures and video with you guys by the end of the summer. I just need more money so I can finish.

To si ti polirao?
I know this is probably a dumb question and everyone's gonna say use the search button but I'm thinking of attempting a 16vt build and I was wondering what is a common fuel system to run on. My cabriolet is on CIS right now. Would I be able to push about 15-20 psi or would I have to swap the fuel system?

I hear the entire cis system is good to about 8 lbs.. I'd say stand alone like megasquirt or digi 1 with bbm chip but that's just from research not from experience.. I'm piecing together my digi swap from motronic, just dealing with maintenance issues atm.
