FM hot side intercooler hose ordered, along with the 1.6 throttle cable adapter... It was only $13 so I figured eff it....
Last thing I believe I need (I hope) is the coolant mixing manifold... No idea where im going to get that from.
I feel like I've hit my breaking point today as far as dumping $$ into this thing... I have said over and over "One more part, one more part" .... Blah I just want to get it running and drive it into my garage and let it sit for the winter so I can re-coop some $$ and get back to it in the spring!
Had the manifold and turbo off yesterday...
Applied lock-tite supplied with Artech's stud set onto the studs and tightened down the nuts.
Put on a new exhaust mani gasket.
Somehow misplaced 2 exhaust mani nuts so I will have to run to a hardware store some some generic replacements.
Today I put the mani/turbo back on and bent up a different bracket for the wastegate rod... Looks like this one should work.
Also cut out some sheet metal for space for the FM intercooler hose.
Clocked the turbo
Mounted EBC and ran some vacuum lines to the wastegate(Not shown here)
I think thats all I did today...
Off to Vegas for a few days for a business trip... Back at it when I return Lol
