Stuff got done last night, probably the second time we have worked on it for more than 1-2 hours at a time, it was good to actually get work done. Todd will update it soon I'd imagine.

Few updates from the other day, we got the muffler all welded and painted, I got my harness installed. Now it's getting to my nervous time. We have to finish the welding on piping, just ordered a piece to tap into the compressor housing for boost control. Need to fill fluids finish tightening clamps than figure out vtps and get running. Yes Justin will be upset I posted a picture of him. But hey gotta hide better.

Default It runs

So we got the mspnp2 all situated, currently doing data logging and sending back and forth with a remote tuner,. First off no fluid leaks big plus!! we found a couple boost leaks got those squared away, realized luckily from driving light that i need an oil restrictor so thats in the mail coming, also we overheated the ignitor so a new one coming in for that, Other wise it runs i couldnt be happier. Also i have a autometer coolant temp coming in, since seeing thru ms how bad the factory really is first hand. Another little purchase last week was a 350 nardi and ordered a horn button from Adam to match my badges. Hopefully this week oil feed will be squared, gonna do another oil change swap out the plugs and go from there with more tuning.

I'll beat Todd to this one, another bad mitsumoto radiator. They are eating the shipping cost of this once since it didn't last more than a few miles.

Well we narrowed it down to what was a faulty ignitor. All i can say is wow. This car pulls amazing drives great the currrent tune is pretty well off. We have it set to 10psi and its running great, Today is IFO in epping not sure if any of you will be there but the Smurf will be. As of now still going easy for a few reasons new clutch new setup everything so easyish driving to make sure its going great!! Needless to say this was my favorite car before boost and now it can continue to hold that title!

So car is running great pulled on a modded wrx today weeee. Downside we learned yesterday that at 11 psi roughly im maxing out the yellow tops. Justin is saying there is a way we can lean out top end a little but for now i have just turned down boost to whats sho\wing 9 psi. Car does run really well im sure just little fine tuning but timing seems to be well and afrs are reading good. The only other part we have see nis my fan on needs to be changed its turning on at about 225 id like it to turn on lower. Cruising temps appear to be in the 180-190 range so good there. The only time i saw the higher temps was in the hour long wait while slowly moving to pull into ifo.
