Upgraded the 3D printer. Auto bed leveling is amazing. Seriously made me fall in love with 3D printing all over again. I no longer have to calibrate the bed for each print. Just hit play and walk away.
Made this intake elbow with IAT sensor port and oem hoses barbs
custom intake. Using the stock ECU at the moment hence that damn MAF
Added a racing beat header.
Pull up resistors for the new sensor breakout box for my racecapture
All wired up, This makes it much easier to add new sensors and pass everything through the firewall with a single cable.
Messy engine bay
Finished the install just in time for a Chuckwalla track day
Then this happened..... Engine went Kaput on the 3rd session. I have no idea why but it sounds awful. I guess this is an excuse to upgrade to a 1.8
170 mile tow of shame home. Thank god for AAA
Good thing I have this spare for the engine building class. It looks like it will need to be used much sooner than I had hoped. God this thing was a mess. Oil gunk EVERYWHERE!!!
2 hours of cleaning later...
Just placed an order for seals and timing belt kit to freshen this engine up. The leakdown test results were mediocre but I'm hoping it's from sitting for so long and they will be better once warmed up. This engine just needs to last me till the end of this year so I can finished the forged internal engine build.
