Head is off and at the machine shop getting the valves replaced! Got ahold of FFE and ill have my manifold next week and just waiting on my control arms. Things are starting to come together!
Ordered the Dynomax Racing Bullet series muffler, yeah itll be loud.. I also got a 3 position relay module to power the awic water pump, inline fuel pump and EBC (gauges also). Hopefully the parts will start coming in this week (manifold and control arms) and then I can get this thing running.
I should have a test file for those injectors tomorrow since you sent me the injector specs!
-relay module and exhaust will be in today so I wil get a bunch of wiring done. Won't be able to tap to ignition wire just yet though.. Engine shop has the Bentley to replace head for torque specs and I would rather double check and get it right the first time. I can definitely get a lot of petty chit done though.
The TDI (95.5mm) crank came in today!! I have the oversized main bearings as well.. I looked it up on Eagle website to be sure and they use the 20mm wrist pins (0.79in)!!! This means I just need some oversized rod bearings and stroker pistons to build a 2.1L bottom end Itll be awhile before I can afford the pistons, but I will be putting back and possibly start the bottom end build in the winter
Are you available for a flash session tonight?
Yeah. As long as you can turn ignition on, it will work.
few small problems.. distribution block isnt in my electrical parts bin I found someone selling a used one on here and hope to hear from them soon.. I got called in to work 1430-2300 the next two days as well , also have not gotten a tracking number from FFE called at noon and they were shipping it today.. Called twice since and havent gotten an answer. Everything else is on its way with a tracking number. Props to Issam at INA as well. He completely bent over backwards to help me out and I am very appreciative.
- got a fuse block from a member soooo much better than $100+ bucks for a new one

The head will be ready tomorrow. I called FFE again today and he said he thought it shipped yesterday.. guess we will see. They said they would call back but havent.. Anywho, I got the 3 position relay module installed. Got the dual gauge pod (steering wheel) installed along with the boost and wideband gauge wired up. Just waiting on the Supra A-pillar to install the pygrometer and Oil pressure gauges. Also, installed the heat exchanger fan to the awic heat exchanger. Hopefully they shipped the manifold and it will be here this weekend.. Everything else is on the way and Im making as much progress as I can before work..
Head is back on, motor is in the car, new muffler was put on and fit like a dream.. Gonna make my 90 corner tomorrow for the side exit system. Hopefully my manifold and fuse block show up tomorrow or ill have to wait til monday to start her up.
lost 2 bolts and broke my ground capacitor.. Ill be headed to the local parts store to replace the bolts and head to Radioshack to grab a new capacitor. Not a big deal but minor inconvenience is all
need some more pics I love pics
^^^Big Turbo build lots of pics^^^
Best shop for repair and custom workin ma
Rear tire mounted to check fitment.. 225's on 16" rims with 25mm spacers
3position relay module, will power fuel pump, awic water pump, gauges and ebc.. Battery will be mounted right next to it and I am going to build a custom cover.
- engine looks the same since im waiting on the manifold to get here
Control arms will be here today. The fuse block should be here today or tomorrow and still waiting on the damn manifold and 4.7 microfarad 110v capacitor but Im going to an electrical motor shop today to see if they have one. Just got to get an oil restrictor then I'm good to go!
UPS always delivers late evenings to my house.. So I stopped te shipment at the facility so I can pick them up as soon as I get off in 2 hours hopefully everything else will be here today. Already talked to Issam about an oil restrictor and have to get the thread pitch and it will be on the way! things are coming together..
Thanks to Issam and his wonderful skills getting me a custom adapter and new throttle body
USRT tubular control arms. The spacers are in the packing lmao --old ball joints got stuck so I have to remove the axles from the spindles tomorrow to get a good swing at em..
modified supra A-pillar and modified MKIV double gauge steering wheel pod
Been thinking about those control arms for my car. I'd be really interested in ride quality feedback and response once you're up and about. Build looks great man, car should rip.

happened so fast I didnt notice the cut but the pain was from the force of the bracket hitting me. I honestly looked down and thought I would have a big bruise but I was wrong.. After stitches and such, I was trying to keep going at it. Was cutting hose for the AWIC when my hand had a sharp pain and spasmed. That made the box blade go right in the other hand.. Asking about stitches on that one tomorrow after xrays.. My whole hand is swollen and when I called they said I should get it xrayed, so ill just get the stitches then. I was done after that
This was not done professionally. I used a propane torch and the square leg of the engine hoist to get a good bend to attach the brackets.. They arent pretty but will work perfectly to get solid measurements for some sexier ones
