Most excellent btw So how much stuff was crapped up behind the turbine heatshield?

I also hate the fact that you have access to a blaster. I have many jellies.

A lot.

Like a whole lot.

Like I think I went through half a wire wheel cleaning it up, and that doesn't even include stabbing it with screw drivers and knives to break off the outer layers.

lol

But now I know how to rebuild a turbo

I figured that was the case. I got the turbine housing off and blasted behind that heatshield with some cleaner and a flood of crap got dislodged. I tried to soften it up with something that would penetrate () but it sounds like it didn't help much. Sounds like you have it under control though.

This is why I mentioned it prominently in the FS thread and picked up the rebuild kit. I absolutely knew it needed some love.

You have a soda blaster? **** you good sir. I want a parts cleaner and a sand blasting cabinet so bad. While we're at it my own Powdercoating booth.

IB4 compressor falls off! :lol:

Nothing to be jelly about: I don't have a blaster. Just have friends that do.
The wheels were actually cleaned and blasted by G-Pop shop.

I was going to throw on the MS3 this weekend, but I'm sick as a dog, haven't been sick in 2 years, and I guess finally it caught up to me, I caught the nastiest cold I think I've had in over 10 years.

bleh

eating pills by the handful and feeling like death.

Sidenote: My turbo has been disassembled and sitting in the parts washer for a few days as I wait on my kit from gpopshop. Is there anything I couldn't use a media blaster to cleanup? (Aside from the wheels I assume). I'm not sure if it has glass beads or soda in it at the moment, if that makes a difference. Plan was to only use it to clean up the housings.

A couple hundred bucks at Harbor Freight for the parts washer and sand blasting cabinet.... and an old electric oven from Good Will and you are set!

Is it a mineral spirits based parts washer? If it is the aqueous solution type, don't use it on the compressor housing or anything else made of aluminum, the aqueous solutions can cause staining and corrosion of aluminum.

Hope you marked it. And correctly.

One of the reasons I sent mine to gpop was cause I marked everything but the inside of the shaft. Realized it when the nut was about 1/4 turn off. Could have put it back to at least close to original location but said screw it, might as well get this thing balanced and 150% good to go.

I did mark it, with sharpie. And realized a day after having it in the parts washer that the sharpie probably wouldnt survive. So I'm kind of just playing it by ear now until I pull the parts out. I had the same concerns about the solution and aluminum, but the owner of the shop told me it would be fine. I wasn't, and am still not, positive the solution hen has in there, and what effect it would have on aluminum. In hindsight I wish I'd just done it all by hand. But whats done is done, so we'll see....

Yeah, when I purchased my parts washer I got a bottle of the solution concentrate... then read the label and realized half of the parts I would be working on would be stained or damaged. I hunted down a local supplier of mineral spirits based solution, and have been using that. Made it convenient for the "wash out any chips with mineral spirits" part of the turbo drain line installation

So I plugged in the ms3 today, loaded everything per Revs instructions, and the car fired up and idled. Very impressive.
Didn't run it too long since the wideband is not connected yet, about 30 seconds or so.

However,
Tach doesn't work. At all. Shows in TS, but the actual physical tach does not even budge.

I sent Rev a PM, he will probably figure it out really easily, but here's screen shot of tach settings anyway:


Is there anything else I'm missing to check in the software or would this be 100% hardware? (ms unit itself)

Yup, so the wire labeled "tacho" is currently set as your tach output pin. Is it wired to your tach? We're having the same problem with our MSM coils, but out MS doesn't have a tach output pin :(

Tach out from the factory harness should be (3O) have you checked the connection? or the wire between the OEM harness and the MS3?
