Check out the Fumoto drain valves. You'll never have to worry about stripping the hex off another drain plug. Love mine.

I actually had one of those years ago, and sold it. I was worried it would hang too low on my setup with the crappy PA roads.


A Fumoto went on mine during it's first oil change in my care.
I don't think it hangs any lower than the pan or suspension components.
I'll take pictures.

The 90 degree part rotates to drain, I've got a short piece of Vinyl tubing on there to control the flow when draining.

If I break that thing off I've got bigger problems.

Winter is fast approaching! I thought it would be nice to be able to drive this thing in the snow this year... So, as I had planned to do last year, I now have a new set of winter meats to put on.

Image

These are Nexen winSpikes, which get really good reviews. Hopefully I'll be able to got some winter time shenanigans in this year! They were handed over to a friend of mine with the old Ronal 15' wheels to mount and balance. Should be some fun times ahead!

Picked up my snowies on Friday, all mounted balanced and ready to go!

Winter mode is now engaged!

I'm looking forward to some winter time shenanigans!

That's great!

Now you can finally start using that car for what it was built for... kicking winter's a**! :-)

That's the plan! Not only is it running very well, hopefully it will drive really well in snow now too!

I'm running 35psi on all 4 corners, and these snow tires look low on pressure to me. I'm also used to performance tires, so that could be the problem.

I also forgot just how "squishy" snow tires are. It's been probably 15 years or more that I haven't owned a set. Good news is, they are saving my spine and kidneys on the rushed for winter road work they have been doing around here...

Happy new year everyone!

well, for the first time in a long time, I have been driving the car in the winter. Due to this, there has been a lot of condensation build up in the breather line. This has turned into quite a bit of nasty oil foam. like this
Image

Because of this, I have decided to build a pretty basic oil catch can setup. The tank was originally built with another purpose in mind, but with some modification, should work really well as a catch can.

Image Image
Image

I picked up some stainless scouring pads to use as a filter below the perforated plate. It will be safety wired to the plate to keep it in place.
Image

Hopefully this will help keep the water and oil foam from getting into the intake track. I'll post pics when its installed. It is about 15 degrees outside, so probably wont be doing it today...

Like normal, the can is too long to fit where I want it. I will try to shorten it, and see how that goes.

I spent this last weekend up in CT getting the 3" turbo back exhaust built and installed on the bandit. It was an interesting precess, but it worked out well in the end. Lots of cutting, fitting and welding turned a lot of straight pipe and a couple bends into an amazingly quiet exhaust.

Here is the downpipe, this was the first 3" 10vt downpipe Tim had ever built, so it was quite a bit of trial and error.
Image

This was the final test fit before the WG was welded on. It's quite tight in there.
Image

Here is the final install of the downpipe. All wrapped up and air gap heat shield installed.
Image

Here is the section from the downpipe to the rear subframe. The is a vibrant resonator and half of a borla muffler. The entire borla muffler was too large to fit where we wanted it, so we cut it and recapped the end.
Image

The over axel pipe was a rear PITA! Anyone with a full 3" system know just how little room there is in that area...
Image

And, due to having to leave in a hurry, I forget to take a finished pic of the rear muffler... Here is one while time was welding it. It's a dual 2.5" in/out "X" magnaflow muffler. Tim made an awesome 3" to dual 2.5" "Y" to connect it.
Image

And for fun, I tried to take some pics through my welding helmet. This was the best one I got while he was welding on the rear muffler.
Image

The system sound great! It actually sound "like a turbo car"... Much different sound than the 2.5" system had, and amazingly quiet when on the highway. I can't thank Tim enough for figuring this system out!

Thanks, I can take very little credit on this one though. Tim taught me a couple things about Tig welding!

It turns out that Tim was cognizant enough to take a pic of the rear muffler after it was installed. Its a work of art!
Image

As you can see here, He has pretty much perfected the whole back purge tig welding. This is the hole saw "coin" from opening up the down pipe for the waste gate.
Image
Image

And, because I know this got posted on some version of social media... I do actually work on my own shit :P

Thanks! I am very pleased with the work that Tim did! It has a great sound, and it wont drive you nuts on the highway.

This is how my luck goes... Putting gas in the car the other day, and noticed this...
Image

That's right! My windshield is cracked! Not sure when it happened, but it's in the lower PS corner. At least it's not in an inspection fail area. Hopefully I can find a new one to replace it.

On a different note, I finished my "mini can". I had to cut the original catch can in half to make it fit. There will be a section of 1/2" hose attached to the bottom to allow some volume of crap to be caught.
Image

Here it is on the last test fit before I finish welded it. Fits really well and not modification needed!
Image

Hopefully it works as well as I'm hoping. We shall see.

This is my first try using a GoPro. I borrowed it from a co-worker, along with a couple tips. Came out ok I think. Please excuse the snow tire and suspension noise. I'm still trying to figure out what is making the noise in the rear suspension. :?

Did you know that a back fire through a really free flowing exhaust is extremely loud? To the point of sounding like a 10ga shotgun...

Ok, so not sure what is going on. This is twice in the past week, first time happened on Friday after my dentist appointment. It didn't back fire then, but it did seem to only be running on a couple cylinders, then die. Today I guess I tried too many times, and it back fired, really loud! I think my intake manifold is getting heat soaked badly when it's only shut off for a short period of time. Need to figure this out.

I am officially a home owner! Signed all the paperwork and got the keys and openers this morning! Very excited, except for the whole moving part... :P

Here are a couple external shots. Garage is a big enough to work in, so it will work out nicely.

Hopefully soon I'll be able to get some descent equipment in the garage so I don't have to be taking everything to work to do it.
