Yeah, so did I. I cracked the rotors in my 3rd session on Sunday, so wound up leaving about 1:30.

As for the tarp -- I was more surprised that you had loose non-waterproof things strapped to the trailer and that they didn't all fit in the trunk. I don't go camping though, so I'm not used to that kind of load.

Just practicing. Flanges should be in soon. Ordered some more weldels. Should hopefully be starting on a manifold soon.

Pretty welds, but I don't think that's going to flow very well.

TSE EFR flange is beef. Way thicker than the full race one. And the ebay ones I've had.




picked up a bit of brake cleaner



Trying to get practice in everyday on stainless. Need to order more tube.








Bonus cat picture.

Could you get me measurements on that flange? I'll cad it up for the community. I need one for the cad model of my MZR swap EFR manifold.

I thought that was the inlet flange for the v-band housing. I thought it looked a little big.

My LC-2 went out twice on the drive to MRLS. Sensor has lived a long hard life (almost 2 years turbo'd now?)

So I took the opportunity to upgrade to a 4.9 LSU setup.



Great prices off amazon prime.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013UG0MJE
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FS949SG

Also picked up a 4 port boost solenoid (not pictured) to be used with a turbosmart wastegate actuator

MAC Boost Solenoid BCS 4 port 46A-AA1-JDBA -1BA for turbosmart AEM HI-TEMP

And a little bit of t5 ****








Pictured is the upper shift rail. Going to replace that with a longer one, which will extend the shifter the correct distance out the back of the output shaft housing. With an adapter the lever will be in the perfect location in the cabin.

I upgraded to LC2 a couple months ago. Got it all in the car and didn't last a day before giving me issues. After driving for a bit it would just go full lean. Sent for an exchange from Amazon. Swapped out the whole thing. Same problem. So either I'm doing something wrong or there is something wrong with sensor. Ordered a legitimate Bosch sensor from Amazon. No problems whatsoever. After looking at the sensor delivered with the LC2, I don't think it's a real Bosch. The one from Amazon that came in a Bosch package had "Bosch" and the part number laser etched into the housing.
