standing on the engine i see
Turbo is nearly complete. Just have to put the tip and various lines. Had to stop because my mastif was having problems standing. Hes better now but it's making me sad.
And everything is finished. Minus the MAF housing and the tune. I started her up for 30 seconds and she didnt run as bad as I thought it was going to. No MAF and much larger injectors. My replacement hose came today as well so that was a plus.
My new tip may not be a TT tip. In lieu I now believe it is a S3 tip. It doesn't fit like how I want, but its very manageable.
I had an exhaust leak coming from the manifold. Figured that was gonna happen since I couldn't get a socket on the nuts and had to use a wrench. Went to five stores to get a 12mm open ended offset wrench. Came home with a closed offset wrench and cut it in half.
Ended up snapping one of the bolts.
And at some point I was really bloody.
With a quick search I cant even find a Deep offset open ended wrench.
But I did learn about crowfoot wrenches. Looks like they would do the job and a good tool to have. Looks like Im taking a trip out to Ace Hardware or Sears in a bit.
Manifold is bolted back up. I'm pretty confident on how tight it is.
MAF is finally on.
Tomorrow Im buttoning everything up after work. Hopefully the racecar will be done for Wednesday.
While on my way to work I went to overtake a car. Nearly rear ended the person because I wasn't expecting the car to accelerate that quick.
Obviously loving it so far.
Gonzo's GTT Turbo (K04 Hybrid)
415cc Genesis Injectors
Genesis 4bar FPR
Cheap Highflow Exhaust Manifold (Which I believe is a Kinetic rep)
Samco S3 inlet pipe
3" MAF Housing
Eurojet 3" exhaust with the cat removed
That's all I can think of for now.
