So, been busy with it, here's a small update...

Took the engine out. I sent the flywheel off to ClutchMasters for a new tone ring and ordered a new starter from Summit Racing. While I was waiting I put the engine back in and tried to tackle some others stuff...

Made a full 3" turbo back with 2.5" tips.

Got the flywheel back so I took the engine back out... reversed the coolant flow to exit the driverside instead of the passengerside and bolted everything up; put it back in the car.

Finished installing everything today with hopes to make it out the the cruise in PA this Sunday, but that's not going to happen; mainly in part to what I think it a bad CPS. Cranks but no start; nothing changed wiring wise, and I'm not getting any movement on the tach when cranking. Guess it'll sit til I can get a new one in.
DAMN IT LOOKS GOOD...

I had installed the cam lock bar and wanted to make sure the timing pin was visible on the flywheel. In order to remove the crossover I had to take off the cam sensor.

By accident I didnt reinstall it before I went to start the car and behold it fired right up; but something wasnt right. Both cam chain tensioner pads on the driverside broke and upon inspection moved the intake cam 90° advanced. (The ECU saw this and wouldn't start the car, with it unplugged it didnt see it so it thought it was good to start.)

The middle 4 intake valves are toast, but everything else is good. I pulled apart the passengerside out of curiosity and one of the pads was broken as well, but luckily didnt lose timing.

Everything all together was ~$300 including the valve installation tool so not too bad...

Shame to see that but it could have been worse. Hopefully have it back together soon.

Still waiting on some valves and stuff, but I installed the aerocatch hoodpins and redid the coolant fan relay wiring harness today.

Under the hood?! You crazy?

It's going to be completely out of the hood because quite frankly... theres no room and why not! Haha. But in all honestly theres just really no room.



Well that was a fucking lie. First drive on the new setup was tits. I didn't keep an eye on the IAT's, but it was 90°F outside and coolant coming of the radiator never went above 180°F

Aerocatch was purchased at Summit Racing, A+ quality

Thanks guys! I've been driving the crap out of it, about 500 miles so far and no hiccups. I just couldn't be happier with how everything turned out; I mean I could, but it's only related to engine bay area that'll be polished overtime.

I've been pedaling it to stay out of boost.. the HPX MAF is neither tuned in or even scaled for that matter. Also limited to about 4000rpm, but even with 1/4 throttle input the car hauls.
