      awesome. have you actually started it? i re-arranged some gauges today, reinstalled my dvd player, and then put on a few miles. hoping to put some more on it this week. gotta hurry before the weather gets poopy and i have to put it up for the winter.

      amazing build. good to see someone else do it by themselves.

      Nope haven't started ECU is untuned. Just turned the key to make sure the pumps and gauges were wired properly. Hopefully I can finish the damn thing this weekend to get it tuned. Still have a bunch of odds and ends to tie up for the main part its 98% done. I still need to pick up an EGT gauge and install it. I was trying to find something that would match the LC-1 but I don't know if i want a digital one i think an analog would be easier to monitor. I hope i can get this thing running before winter too . It would suck to put it away before it even ran lol.

      Got the motor running today. Motor sounds like ****. Excessive noise up top. Not sure what the issue is. Anyone have any suggestions? Going to have my buddy take a look at tomorrow. Hopefully the lifters just don't have oil in them or something easy. I have it running on the stock injectors right now and it idles but is loud. The A/F gauge reads about 17.5-18 but I'm not sure if its calibrated right or not. Also not sure how to determine how much oil is in the car considering I have a mk5 r32 pan and an oil cooler. I have about 6qts in it. If i take the oil cap off I can see oil sloshing around. There is definitely pressure. Its a brand new mk5 pump as well. Also running the car without the mac plugged in. I can put a video up if need be.

      Let it run for a little bit so the lifters can pump up. The noise should slowly go away, especially considering you can see a lot of oil moving around.

      Make sure the plug wires are in the correct location. I just had the exact problem. My a/f read 17.3 and it ran rough. #1 & #3 were crossed.

      Nope ran out of money. It needs another 2,000 and its done.
      Need to power bleed the coolant system.
      Bleed the power steering
      Fix the wiring issue so the alternator charges
      Tune the car
      Done

      Update since there has not been one in quite some time. My buddy did a ton of work.

      Willing to pay someone good with wiring and in NJ, that car wire the tach, speedo, and oil pressure warning light; message me



      -Oil cooler has been moved higher and in front of the rad. You can see the very edge of it in the corner hanging past the crash bar
      -Power steering has been fixed with a new reservoir and relocated into the corner
      -Inline filler neck and overflow bottle have been removed because they suck and the OEM setup was put back in
      -Alternator works now, forgot to put the grounding cable from the engine block to the frame rail back on
      -Battery box has been installed to hold down the battery in the trunk
      -Filter has been removed off the valve cover and a proper catch can has been installed
      -AC is charged and functioning properly

      -Moved the wideband to the pillar
      -Installed oil pressure and egt on the column
      -Finish molding boost controller

      Few things that are left:

      Installed this full FIS cluster
      Wire the tach and speedo to work
      Wire the oil pressure idiot light in the cluster
      Install EGT Probe
      Re do the fueling so there is no plug in the fuel rail
      Buy and install fender liners
      Buy and install a rain tray
      Install wipers
      Tune
