      I am curious how you determined that the head gasket was blown? I have been working on 1.8T's for a long time, and have never seen a 1.8T actually blow a head gasket. I have seen coolant related issues from overheating, and a bunch of turbo-related problems that were blamed as bad head gaskets, but never actually seen where the gasket failed. The 1.8t head clamps on so well, in so many points, it is one of the 1.8T's strong points for sure.

      Your build looks to be coming along well, nice looking car too. Curious also why you chose the 3076? I know that is a great setup when paired with a 2.0L displacement upgrade, but I didn't see if you were increasing displacement to 2.0L? We orignally ran the ATP 2871R kit in a 1.8L, but we replaced the ATP manifold with a better manifold after a year or so, and it made 413whp, and ran 11.26 in the quarter mile at 127mph. Not bad for FWD. We also run the Uni BT software, it is the best (IMHO).

      Keep up the good work.

      I think you might have some incorrect information. The head torquing procedure changes on what type of hardware you are using.

      If you're using studs you absolutely MUST re-torque the head after one heat cycle. No questions asked it's in the ARP manual and both performance shops I've went to have told me this.

      If you are using OEM stretch bolts you do not re-torque the head. I believe the same goes for ARP bolts, however, I am not sure and would like someone to confirm.

      I'm running arp bolts and I have not heard this before. I'm about 1000 miles into the new motor and I'm not having any problems. I'll take a look around and see what I can dig up.

      ** Found the installation directions on there website. ARP head bolts don't need to be retorqued.

      Looks great, this should make a killer street car! Providing you got uni to give you all the deletes the only thing that needs either a resister or a solenoid plugged into the electrical plug (no vacuum lines needed) is EVAP and VVT if you deleted VVT. Personally I run with the EVAP solenoid still plugged in, I just hide it, and I plugged in the gold n249 solenoid into the VVT harness and it trims perfectly. Now you'll get a code for no n75 if you choose to delete that also but no CEL

      I didn't-- I kept adding things to the list. Last week I decided to do ACL coated rod bearings instead of OEM. This week I just got a brand new cam tensioner in because I saw a thread with a failed one last week. All that's left is a decision on manual or hydraulic timing belt and I'm done... or so I think

      That's the exact issue I had. In my blackholed buildthread I had documented it as well as emailed 034/INA about it with no direct resolution. I later sold the catch can and decided to go custom. The location of the vent makes for a horrible smell in the cabin.

      If you can I'd return it now for a full refund. The setup also sucked oil vapors into my intake manifold causing it to be flooded with oil over and over again until I disconnected the one way valve they had on it and plugged both the 034 line and the intake manifold.
