      local parts store had to order it from their warehouse within the state.

      i bought my moroso filler neck on ebay, but i have seen them on jegs before as well. another company called "CSR" makes nice billet filler necks as well. 1.25" is what you want for the stock upper radiator hose. i bought 1.5", it was too big so i had to run 1.5" hose up to the coolant flange from the radiator inlet

      The only time the screamer pipe opens is at full boost. Unless you are boosting 10psi it will hardly ever be open.

      I have also read that the wastegate regulates boost better with it open. Not sure if there is any truth to that

      I have read that with an open dump you get a lot of exhaust fumes within the cabin etc...any truth to that?

      Unless you drive around at wide open throttle all the time I don't see how that is possible

      started the car just now. everything seems to be sound. except i have no throttle response.

      had to extend my rear o2 sensor, so i think an error there might be the problem.
      it's dark, i'm tired. i'm waiting for my phone to charge cause i don't own a legit flash light.
      going to re-evaluate the rushed wiring and see if i can solve the problem and get this bad boy broken in.

      after i figure this out, i'll fill in the gaps, pictures and all.
      right now it's just a mad dash to get this beast back on the road.


      edit: o2 sensor wiring is fine. car idles, moves when clutch is disengagued (vr6 clutch feels nice ) but no throttle. epc light is on.

      got some searching to do.... tomorrow.

      Edit edit: I may have moved the throttle position a tiny bit while cleaning it before I swapped it to the TT manifold. could be the problem according to this:
      http://www.audizine.com/forum/showth...nd-No-Throttle
      Second post.


      I don't think it's my pedal. never had a problem, and never touched it.
      MAF is unplugged, but according to maestro, the tune will automatically go to "mafless" mode if it's unplugged.




      help.

      Do a throttle body alignment. Measuring block 060 and then click "basic settings".

      If your car is idling poorly, has recently been reflashed, or the battery has been disconnected, you may need to perform a Throttle Body Adaptation.
      Step 1 – Connect your Powertap Tuning Cable to your computer and plug it into your vehicle’s OBDII port. Open the Eurodyne Flash Client software. Turn your Key to the ‘On’ position but do not start your car.
      *** The Eurodyne Flash Client and Maestro 7 Tuning Suite are updated frequently, make sure you are running the most recent software versions to ensure your cable functions properly.***
      Step 2 – Open the ‘Measuring Blocks’ feature from the dashboard of the Eurodyne Flash Client.

      In the block selection field on the left hand side of the screen enter ‘60’, then select ‘Switch to basic settings’.

      The words ‘ADAPT RUN’ will appear in the Status field of the measuring blocks while the throttle body adaptation is taking place.


      When the status field reads ‘OK’, select ‘Switch to measuring blocks’ and you’re done!

      still have power, just now it won't do anything after turning the key.

      this is as far as I get.

      Does it crank and just not turn over or does it not even try to crank?

      It cranked AND started the first time I did the adaption ( still no throttle ). after that nothing.

      I updated maestro to 4.2.7 from 4.2.6. I'm going to try again in a little bit.

      reaaaally want to get this bad boy running. if nothing after this try, I might try a friends TB in the morning.

      Try disconnecting the battery for at least 15 minutes, then give it a try. I had the same issue once where i disconnect the TB for cleaning n when plugged again it gave me hell. I had to do like 15 TB adaptations in a 3 day span until it got working back again (got the EPC n it wouldnt rev). I learned no to unplug my TB ever again!

      no luck. anyone have any other suggestions?

      any way this can be ECU related?

      I did have to cut/ extend the rear o2 wires. maybe some of them touched? there are two white wires, maybe I mixed them up at one point?
