Should make it by 1005
I know some puristst are going to murder me, but I got the urge to change my car's color a few months back. So I hopped on www.dipyourcar.com and ordered their Pro Car Kit with Matte White and on Friday went to work.
I actually really like it. I need to take some more professional looking pics, but just wanted to throw these up. Don't worry guys it's all reversable and actually looks pretty good.
bbq was awesome.
Yippy!!!! car is finally boosting like it should. i had been wondering why the car broke up so bad during anything reaching 25 psi and figured it was time for a new set of plugs. changed plugs today to find out that during the last rebuild the builder put ngk brk 7eix gapped to .037... now i dont know them do that considering ive been running denso iridiums at about .025 up to 32 psi. even if i were to use the 7's there is no way theyd suffice at .037 and besides being a heat range too hot they probably experienced blow out.
new plugs are denso iridium, ik 27's, gapped to .025 and the car has responded wonderfully... idles dead flat at 14.7. 25 psi is great and it pulls like a freight train. ordered a new water coolant line from atp finally so thats next. i still need to do some tuning but its pretty healthy right now.
sure does feel good to fix issues....
a week or two ago, i fixed the pcv system which was why the car was pissing oil everywhere. during the rebuild a lot of the system was hacked and not installed properly or plugged. so i remade a pressure tester and pressurised the system to find the leaks. since finding and fixing a few very large leaks the car now holds exactly whatever boost im looking for.
But yea if your running more than 15 psi you can't run more than - .030 gap or you'll blow out the spark and experience that fall on your face / breaking up/ feels like its missing for a second or two
I dont want my J-Lines anymore...
ive used them before but on less modified cars and have found the denso's to be more reliable in my high boost/ big turbo applications. going with the 1 heat range colder for every 100 hp addage the 7e's are not sufficient enough for me.
this is what i have traditionally run on my cars
stock - chipped = brk 6e/ denso ik20
gt28r @ 368whp = brk 7-8e/ denso ik22
3076r @ 413whp = brk 8e/ denso ik24
3076r @ 450+whp = brk 8+/ denso ik24 - ik27
right now im hoping to be 450+ on high boost as my last confirmed dyno was 413 whp with 2 huge boost leaks under the manifold and revo 550 sw on 630 injectors. ive fixed the boost leaks, changed software to maestro 830 with siemens 830's, added water meth and a larger, more efficient intercooler.
right now my limitations are throttle body, intake mani (ABD racing) and head... in that order. they will be replaced at some point but im just excited to be getting things back on the ++ side.
Since when did a 3076r become a big turbo , I thought my 3582r was small :p haha jk... 3076r is prob. The best turbo for a 1.8t.
On a side note... I'm a firm believer in not going colder than a 7-8 unless your in the 550+whp range
I dont want my J-Lines anymore...
+ Upgrade customer's 3037 (3076R) turbocharger with 76mm HTA billet compressor wheel
Your 3582 upgrade is the same price . I called and talked to a FP rep who said it takes about 4 days for the install not including shipping time so im assuming the entire process would take a good week or so.
Called FP again and spoke about my newly damaged turbo. The damage means it cant be upgraded. My options are now...
1. replace chra
2. buy new gtx3076r from atp for $1434
3. buy new hta3076r from FP for $1789 (using my turbine ex housing)
4. buy new hta3076r from FP for 1999 (complete turbo)
I have a few parts for sale that i figured id try here first since its local which is preferred.

i called u
Okay so I'm back again with another VR question. I've been considering getting cams whenever I have to do my chains(which could be soon, not too sure), anyway the question is other than getting the HD springs is there anything else I'd need to consider with camming a high-mileage vr. I was thinking I might need to get new lifters as well.
Cams: either Autotek 262 or TT 264/260(or 264/263 but haven't look at the specs yet)
Mileage: most likely be around 250k
