      So broke the bolt to the control arm off on the driver side the other day

      Then we tried welding a nut on it yesterday but it was just breaking pieces off.

      So we drilled a couple holes to get heat on the backside



      Wes welded a nut on the bolt



      Victory!





      Tomorrow we will weld the holes back up and installed the new control arm.

      I might hit the dyno, I'm not sure I'll have the time off. I will have to retune the car sometime this month due to the new turbo so I'll at least know what my numbers are. And yes going for 470-500 range. About 50-60 more whp then before and a quicker spool. Still on a stock block....

      I was talking to Kevin about it today, seems like a good idea. I'm just woried about cracking the damn thing since its Cast, and if its cracked I'll need a whole new manifold.

      In other news the turbo should be here Wednesday, they sent the wrong one 2 weeks ago

      Yes, I am still working out tuning arrangements. I can talk to kevin, but we would have to rent an AWD dyno and thats a bit more $$. Also what SEM is Wes on? Mega?

      It was the clutch, trying a Clutch Masters FX400 (600whp), 6 puck sprung disc, with the steel flywheel this time. Hopefully she holds up.

      Should be here and ready to install next weekend

      Back together enough to take it out, man the Precision turbos spool like woah, sounds a lot different too. Now to take the trans back out Saturday and hopefully be good for the season after this weekend.

      Pretty much, all you hear is turbo, its nuts. You here it spooling at 3200 and then it punches you in the face about 3900-4k.

      Current setup was in the high 12's AFR's when I got into it so I backed off and will be getting a new map with mo fuel

      Yup, It's a 58 wheel and mines ball bearing. Spools about 300 rpm quicker than my old turbo and makes way more up top.

      pics of the work done yesterday.



      we were fortunate to have a friend of a friend with a lift!

      the old one coming out:


      hey, is it supposed to make this noise? (click to play)


      hey, what's with all these powder and chunks coming out??


      ohhh, now we see:






      the other side was just as bad:






      how bout what it was grabbing?





      yup.. fuct.

      new one up & in:


      short-throw thrown in while we were there. comparison of old vs. new.


      buttoning things back up




      figuring out that the reason the car wasn't charging was because I messed up the wiring last time we had the trans/starter out (sorry bout that).


      and boom.. back together and ready for the road


      sh!tty video of the ride home.. wind noise is so bad you can't even here the massive howl of the turbo or the backfiring.. TUNE that thing son!!


      and just for fun:
