Got the turbo properly clocked last night, got all the fittings in, and the wastegate actuator in the proper position, and got it mounted to the manifold.....PITA


I borrow a laptop today, load up my FC edit software, and my turbo base map that is supposed to be for my setup (gt28 630s etc), hook it into the car, read and save my current (stock) basemap, then go to write the new turbo basemap, and it tells me that I can't write to a different version.......????


Apparently they sent me a 2zz basemap, I'm becoming annoyed.

Tomorrow is my first day off since I got the kit in, I'll make some real progress then.

I'm just so damned wore out when I get home from work that I don't want to go into the hot ass garage and work some more.

I found a 30mm 12 point shallow that worked, but thanks anyways.


So.......lots done today
Cleaned up the downpipe with a wire wheel


Drilled, taped and threaded the drain bung into the oil pan


The damed nut that held me up for 2 days:


Got the axle loose


and out of the way


got the old header and heat shield out


crimped the water lines going to the heater core and put on new lines that will cool the turbo


turbo and manifold prepped and ready to install, I had a hell of a time getting the whole unit up
past the cross members, I actually ended up taking the wastegate actuator off to get it in.


removed the old studs, the heads were all rounded so I had to use a vice grips, put in the
new APR studs and the new gasket, then slid the turbo manifold on and bolted everything down.
then hooked up the water inlet and out and put the actuator back on



put the K&N on


Got the downpipe installed with the wideband sensor and the stock sensor


got the cat installed temporarily until it can be welded in, it's hanging off safety
wires right now, also reinstalled the stock o2 sensors


installed the hot side of the ic piping


hooray for t-bolts.....worm gear clamps FTL


intercooler plumbed in, still need to get the brackets on it


cold side of the ic piping and the bov


cold side with the MAF up to the throttle body


It feels good to make progress, but I'm tired now, Tiffany just got pizza, so it's time to relax and watch a movie.

Well, been working 12+ hours a day since Monday finishing up the HD conversion at LP field.......still got one level of suites to go but they let us have Labor day off......I doubt I'll do anything on the car for a few more days.

It sucks having it sitting in the garage almost complete, but not being able to finish.
