      oh I know exactly what you mean becuase i was in the exact same position. I originally had the open dump on my pagparts build but in the end sent it off to him for a re-route because it was just getting annoying. i wanted to hear the turbo spool.

      hahah, yes!

      straightened everything out. shift linkage installed ( was a mother fcker to get unstuck from behind the motor since I rushed putting it in), dogbone attached, and started working on the half of ic piping I could without the mani.


      THEN, Friday the mani came in (:

      wrinkle black- sick.

      had to work 12's this weekend over night, so it took up some car time. but I was able to swap everything to the new mani and clean my throttle body.


      the 630's sit way higher, so I'm going to use some tubing as a spacer or a lot of washers and longer grip bolts. also going to need some new vacuum line cause the ports for the fpr are opposite.

      i'll get it sorted out.


      still waiting on software and fuel pump install kit.
      I'll get everything buttoned up so those are the last two things i need.

      MORE TO COME!

      sad to say it won't run this weekend :\

      so you heard the turbo spool then the pipe scream? Did you heat the turbo spool while the pipes screamed?

      Cause my turbo didnt spool slow

      anyone know what to do with my n275 valve wires? how to properly delete it?

      cut the wires and tape them off?

      as you know I have a manual boost controller, and maestro I assume will let me code it out.

      just have a left over plug.

      def do not cut wires, you can trim away the harness wrapping and re-wrap once you get some slack.


      i hear my turbo spool whilst my dum screams..cos the billet wheel, with no filter,etc is effing LOUD..it makes a creepy whine at idle..you can hear it sucking air..love it.

      so you're telling me, leave it as is... Unplugged and tucked away?

      what if I cut the slack, and wrap the two individually (not touching)?
      still a bad idea? haha
      -------
      did some harness maintenance today. separated, re wrapped a couple things, cleaned it up.
      mostly for the new manifold, and tryin to keep my wires "tucked."

      when I had my harness apart the first time, I cut back the washer and coolant fluid sensor wires with no problems, resistored everything else.

      quick shot of my unfinished bay while I still had the motor in:


      real update coming shortly. almost finished the harness today, when I ran into that problem. core support and front mount will happen next.

      as a temp solution, leave it unplugged or plug it in and cap the vacuum lines?

      i apologize for the amount of questions, I'm still not clear on what to do.

      just don't want to go limp q;

      looks great dude,

      i would suggest some dei heat wrap for your oil/coolant lines

      and maybe some header wrap over your intake pipe ( i know it looks so good tho) but id prefer to have cooler intake temps, especially when its right above mani/wg

      just some thoughts

      ooooookay! really trying to sew this build up!

      downpipe installed, rest of the exhaust will be made locally after break-in happens.

      rear O2 sensor doesn't reach, might cap it off, might extend it, haven't decided..
      no cat, anyway.

      got some passenger side shaving done, looks ****ty IRL right now... not my main concern atm.


      core support mounted, started mocking up FMIC piping, getting ready to drill rebar.



      gotta go mount my IC.
      ALMOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST DONE!

      if you can tune it out with maestro, don't bother plugging it in
      if you cannot, then leave it electronically plugged in only
      you don't have to cap anything, as there won't be anything attached to it, right?
      what are you using for boost control? an MBC or EBC or just from the WG for now?

      I really hope that you plan on cutting into the rebar, that is way too low and I am not sure how you will ever fit any bumper on there like that...if you manage to massage a bumper on there, then you will destroy your IC with the first speed bump then driving your car with no IC is not very much fun overboosting your turdbo ...

      you will 100% need to cut out ur rebar, something like this (i cut out too much cuz it was my first time but it did the job, make sure u have a serious cobalt drill bit and top notch sawz all blades, those rebars r no joke, i ended up using a torch
