I forgot, are you running an oil cooler?
Well, my day got cut short but was still productive.
-Figured out the best location to have the WB bung welded into my spare DP
-Got the intake cleaned/degreased
-Installed the Oil feed line
-Drilled & Installed the oil return
-Installed the pan
-Started to get a game plan for my post IC charge piping
I was looking for piping and found this set on ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/250958051953...84.m1497.l2649). I figured the quality may be crap based on the price, but I figured I didn't have much to loose. You could spend what they were asking on just a few t-bolt clamps and couplers. Anyways, I'm seriously blown away with this kit for what it cost ($90 Shipped). If anyone is in need of some piping for a custom setup, I'd highly recommend this.
Well, the exhaust manifolds are out, O2 sensors are out, and I'm just about ready to attempt the DP removal tonight or tomorrow night (Its hard finding time to work on the car during the week). There is now a glimer of light at the end of the tunnel
Since im a newb at Boost... How are you installing the boost guage tubing? Like where are u feeding it from and routing it through? Im asking cause i have no idea how imma run mine.
Ur gonna t off the FPR?
I'm not...that's not a good source in my eyes (Since that obviously controls fueling). I plan on "t-ing" off on one of the evap lines at the back of the manifold. I'll post some pics when its in.
On another note, I got my post intercooler charge pipe all cut and fitted to be welded. Wait till you guys see it! (2) 75* pipes and (1) 90*
Work looks great... can i hire u hahaha
Ill fly u down using Company funds... they wont miss them.

Wow, this thing is lookin great!
Great job Chris, yes fly down and help Ellery finish his up!
Intake painted and new DP in (well not installed, but physically in place) Anyone looking to change the DP, as many have said, YES the subframe MUST be DROPPED! (Not removed though...) The end of the tunnel is closer!!!
Why the DP needed to be replaced....
Very nice job!
What color is that?
Well, its been a few days since a progress report.
Remaining replacement parts on order (Coil packs, plugs, o-rings, intake manifold bushings, etc)
ECU in the mail
Manifolds, DP, Cat pipe installed
Throttlebody painted with crinkle paint
The end is getting closer!

More progress, more pictures!
Exhaust is on!
Throttle Body cleaned and painted!

Getting ready to go on!
Jumping the washer fluid sensor to prevent a dummy light...thanks Ray32!
Just a little gunk build up ...wonder which (3) I had already cleaned in this picture
Bought me one of these for $20 on ebay! Hope this makes loosening the lower SC bracket bolt easier when the car is back together...

Looking very nice, did i mention that im jealous haha. What are u using to polish, by hand or drill with polishing pad?
Thats not bad, harbor freight sells some nice things... but dont ever buy an engine lift from there... i suppose i shouldnt of expected much more than a one time use for 230 bucks on sale.
But anyways, your build is looking very good. You are doing a lot of tasteful modifications, not just throwing the kit up on there. Someday I hope I can own a car as good looking as yours, lol.
BTW Your engine bay is too clean...
