      So anyway, got some more stuff today.

      Went to return my can, and they didnt have anything in recirc with 3/4 fittings. Couldnt get my money back so I had to exchange for a vented can. Dont really care about the smell but I have a concern.

      It only has one port, now I know I can T the two pcv sources today into one, but is that going to hurt the oil catching ability?

      Im thinking about plasti dipping the wheels, seeing the paint from the po is coming off. any color suggestions?


      oh ya, I got maestro too.

      Mopac really sucks with there no refund policy ( and about everything else ).

      Lordco is much better. Something doesn't fit..no problem. Here's your money back. Plus Lordco will price match anything from Mopac. Have you tried the Lordco near Mission Raceway? I've shopped there a few times and they stock a reasonable amount of Hi Performance parts. Plus some of their staff actually have a brain in their heads and do not try and up sell you on their products that have the most profit margin.

      Okay so friggen ehhh, made some serious progress today. Ripped all the old whatnots out, started getting some of the goodness back in. pulled out all the evap, sai, and pcv. All and all went somewhat smooth, I was expecting hell. If all goes as planned should be ready to go tomorrow.


      Todo:
      Mount intercooler (Im assuming the most time consuming)
      Finish mounting downpipe.
      Run the feed line
      Mount can
      Change dogbone
      Finish all that litttle crap, and flash this sucka!

      Apperently theres no need for a gasket between the turbo and downpipe but I dont know.. might throw some sealer or something in there.

      Heres some pics!
      Gettin er goin!

      Starting to come together :yes:

      You can make your own setup using a relay or you can buy the USRT harness. I would suggest you buy the harness unless you are comfortable with wiring and setting up a relay.

      Pumps all in, made my own relay and wiring. good to go. Runs/Idles wonderful! damn near stock. Getting some mad fluttler so new valve is in my future.

      Got on it once on the way home and spike way to high, I want to run off the wastegate for now. 15psi. It hit so hard but got off of it as soon as I saw 20.

      Heres how I have it routed as of now. Keep in mind I am a external wastegate noob so yeah its probably wrong.

      Wastegate to mbc, to vac source. I have the mbc screwed all the way in, Unless I should have it all the way out?

      Does that harness work with a bosch inline?

      You should have the WG connected to the boost port on the turbo housing (the brass nipple fitting). Make sure you have it conected to the correct side on the WG. This should give you an idea:

      since you don't have a brass nipple on your compressor housing run a dedicated vacuum line directly from the intake manifold to the side of your wastegate if you want to run wastegate pressure only. if you have a boost controller put it on that line somewhere between the manifold and wastegate

      put it up to 20 psi. you can run 20 psi all day on that thing no worries. i usually runn 22-22.5 psi daily. the extra 3-5 psi is big HP

      I will try that out, its breaking up a little bit so I want to figure it all out before I up it a bit
      Heres some pictures, gotta clean the bay up a bit but after this I just wanted it back together.
      its running so-so I feel like there is a lot more there, but i'll have to check the exhaust/vac leaks first

      Finally got to seafoam it, have an exhaust leak turbo to downpipe. Could be that when I was installing it I couldnt get a proper gasket in time so I use a circle gasket that just went to two diagonal bolts. Going to try and tighten it down, if not I may try and pull it out and see what happens.


      Running bkr7e at .028 Is that gap okay?

      I just starting having another issue. going into gears at certain times feels spongy/hard. Not hard as it takes a while to get in, but it doesnt feel solid in there and feels spongy. usually its reverse and 1.

      Could it just be linkage? Or possibly the clutch. I didnt have this issue before the before, and I havent really mashed any gears, so Im hoping it isnt the tranny itself.

      .028 is good...with the mk5 coils you can open the gap up some more

      Not really having misfire issues, just running rich. Im assuming from exhaust leaks.

      Im more concerned about my gear selector issue now.

      I just starting having another issue. going into gears at certain times feels spongy/hard. Not hard as it takes a while to get in, but it doesnt feel solid in there and feels spongy. usually its reverse and 1.
