Does this look off by a tooth?

It is off. Intake is clockwise a tooth.

Yes that's right. There's also a tooth count between the upper marks (19?) and a tension spec. Look these up and double check.

I'm on fire today:



Also picked up a new oil cap because mine was leaking. Garagestar Oil Cap, really well made, looks sweet:



Resbonded Inconel Studs (thanks mobius):



Pulled the water temp sensor out of the connector :( Oh well, going to a digital gauge anyways.



Turbo water return:



Feed:



Still need to get one last head stud, and put the locking bolts on the downpipe.

Signed up for group C at MRLS. Rules say you're supposed to have a day at Laguna seca for C but I hope to have 5+ days before then this summer and I've heard D is too slow.

Also if I'd know ARP studs were the same for the 1.6 and 1.8 then I would have just bought studs and reused them on a 1.8.

I think you probably made the right choice. D is indeed much too slow. Easy to pass though

Have you watched my video from last year?

D is glorified parade laps. C is perfect, even if you haven't been the the track before.

How long is the drive down for you PDX guys?

12-14 hours, depending on stops and how often the car breaks on the way

Like I said, maybe we should go halfsies on a trailer rental, I borrow a truck, and we just tow the two cars down there. It's a thought anyway.

Here's the vid.

In case you were wondering the 1.6 intake manifold gasket is NOT symmetrical. And it WILL leak coolant everywhere if installed backwards.
