      120xxx Miles on my car.. good thing i took it apart when I did, doing complete timing chain kit ie. guides, chains, bolts, etc. could have screwed the engine at any point.

      had the head ported and cleaned, pistons were in good condition, and will be replaced a little further down the road.

      care to list your setup again? i completely forgot .. i know its a c2 kit

      but are you running an aftermarket clutch or a short runner? what size turbo / hotside size?

      Setup is the C2 Motorsport Stage 3 Kit.


      Stage 3 Clutchnet 6 puck clutch...

      Turbo is a Precision 6265 BB .68 and 4inch outlet.
      with a Precision 39mm WG

      I'm not running a short runner for the moment, but after I pay this setup off in a couple months, I'm going to be purchasing pistons, rods, valves, springs, cams, and a shortrunner pretty much at the sametime, and do it all over again.

      As of right now, I'm running the C2 Fabbed FMIC and SS IC piping.

      Will be using stock headbolts, until the boost goes up.

      If you want to know anything else just let me know..

      So a couple things have gone wrong in the build.. tom told me the transmission has gone bad as many do in this car around the mileage I have on it.. he'll be rebuilding it with TT internals which should be nice..

      also, there's a little shaft play in the turbo... the person that sold it to me on the forums said it was 10hours used.. when tom looked at it he saw that the hotside was brandnew but the other side was very used and that worried him.. so he'll be contacting precision turbo to see what route to go next.. he may have to do a couple test runs with it.. and i may need to replace somethings which im not looking forward too...

      all of that said.. it's going to be a little more expensive than i anticipated and i'm trying to sell some things from my car to help a little..

      4inch outlet? and the down pipe is it 4inch?

      thought it was all 3" on the C2 kits

      i was at the shop the other day .. the turbo is a lil confusing ..

      pretty sure its a 4" inlet with a 2.5" outlet aka a "S" cover

      the hotside vband is SLIGHTLY smaller than the vband on the downpipe .. just ever so slightly .. pretty sure it will still seal 100% its just not a solid 100% match they are both 3" I think precision recommends using their own special vbands which is why the fitment isnt 100%

      not sure if whoever sold you this kit bought this all as a solid kit themselves or if they pieced some stuff together

      anyways if anyone can put it together .. its Tom .. so let him work his magic and you will be happy with the end result

      More great news about the build... NOT


      Tom thinks the compressor is going to need to be replaced.. courtesy of the A-hole who sold it to me.. I was told it had 10 hours of use when really it's somewhere around 4 years old...

      Still waiting to hear back from PrecisionTurbo about it for a final price...

      Tom says he'll be finishing up the transmission this week/weekend and we'll just be waiting for the turbo parts to come in...

      Software is all loaded thanks to Jeff at UM..

      I'll be praying to take a trip up next week to hear my car start for the first time...

      cheers..

      From what I was told the cost of a PT rebuild is a little cheaper than buying a new turbo. I ended up just getting a new turbo and have an awesome paperweight too.

      took a little day trip up to drop off some bolts to tom, and be reunited with my car for the first time in a month lol..

      Some good news came from the visit..

      The turbo which was sent to to precision and we thought needed replacement parts, was actually perfectly fine by them, should be back to the shop by next week.

      Replacement shims for the tranny should also be in by next week.

      Which are the only 2 parts he's waiting for the put everything back together.

      All the pics and video's he's been taking will be given to me when I pick my car up so I'll have everything for this thread by then..

      ALSO the car should be ready by H20 !!!!!!

      Why the hell would you pay a shop the few thousand dolalrs to install this kit for you, then go out, buy stuff to bulletproof ur motor, just to pay him again a few months down the road.

      same reason you bought the HPA air to water cooler then sold it before using it

      impulse buy ...

      realistically not many people can afford doing that all at once .. he will most likely find out that just a head spacer and 15 psi is more than enough to put a **** eating grin on your face

      and most of the r32 turbos on the road that havent had problems are the ones WITHOUT built motors

      I didn't sell it, i am actually keeping it. And Mitch thats a really bad comparison. He's removing his motor, and doing all this work, to remove his motor and do all this work. lol thats a lot diff than deciding to no use a part WHILE building it

      fixed that for you, I have had issues with my turbo R but none with the motor I have built. most of my issues have been breaking parts that cant withstand big torque numbers in the drivetrain.

      I put the car back together thursday, started it for the first time in a long time (I am making it a track car and upgraded turbo and fueling) and couple hours later I drove over about 3k miles in a weekend and no problem with the engine since I built it a few years ago.

      if you know what you are doing or if someone (A shop) knows what they are doing the engine should last after being built. you need a good torque wrench and patience to do it right.

      I have seen more blocks with rods through them on stock engines than built ones and most of the time is not an issue with the engine itself, it could be a bad injector, bad fuel or other condition that caused the engine to run poorly and get damaged.

      have a boost spike and you can blow your stock block with a head spacer and in the same fashion a built engine (built is not indestructible)
