I got the LS2 coils to work yesterday. Fired right up on the old (current) engine. I wanted to make sure I had that all sorted out before I install the new engine.

Back to the fuel... I was messing around with the fuel calculations in the sticky. It looks like with the Walbro 190 hp and the ID 1000's, I should be able to use the stock FPR. Does this sound correct, for about 15 lbs of boost?

I have given up on someofit, Im going for ALLOFIT now.

EDIT: I think I got it. a 1,000cc injector will only be at like 45% duty and require about 60 psi on the rail, @ 15 lbs. boost. Does this look right? Man I suck at math..

My coil mount. Top picture was before I had fully welded them, I needed a test fit first.

Polycarbonate!

Any before I get burned up about it, yes that is also a T tap. Temporary until I was sure I had the right wire.

Years ago, I met a guy at a car meet with a show Hyundai. He cut a section of rad hose and replaced it with a glass cylinder with a frost decal, small red LED under it. You could see the orangy dexcool lit up. Very sweet!

I'm confused though on the poly intake.

Glad those coils worked for you!

What's up with that carbon air box, I need something like that. Did it come from ebay?

Stock FPR is fine with MS. Those injectors are big enough for anything you'll need with a wide safety margin, unless I missed corn, but I'd bet they are still plenty big.

I just didn't want to use aluminum or steel for the intake. No reason other than that.

Yes, it's an eBay air filter housing. Super flimsy and cheap plastic ends that break if you over tighten them. It works.

One last look at that 180 mi. engine.

[IMG][/IMG]

Hit it hard after breakfast this morning. wasn't as easy as i thought it would be. There were a few connectors on the transmission that I couldn't see/ figure out for a few minutes, and one under the intake manifold at the starter solenoid.

Coming along. Have you tried that turbo you bought to the manifold? I did mention you'd possibly need studs, right? I'm thinking so, your 2560 is likely a bit smaller than a 3071 was. You are going to have all the power you want easily with that SGDP/manifold. Its pretty slick. Best of luck.

You did say that, and you are correct. the bolts are just a little too long for my turbo. no big deal. Thank you.

Started installing the Sport brakes today ( look at the difference in caliper size!), only to find out that that they were missing the backing plates for the rear pads and the springs that keep the pads in place on all four calipers. Thanks fellow member, I appreciate that.

For some reason I think sport brakes didn't have those, no idea though.

Well I will feel like a dick if they aren't supposed to have them. I guess I should stop being a instant complainer and go find out.

I have decided to get a set of forged pistons now. My question, 8.6 or 9.0 compression ratio? Suggestions?

For your goals and trubo setup, 9.0 should be fine.

Are you going with Supertech? Wiseco?

Supertech with wiseco rings.

When would the 8.6 be more appropriate?

I chickened out. Im just not sure. Now that my parts pile is getting out of control, so are my power goals. I am now considering the fact that down the road I will want more power. In the 275-325 whp range, is 9.0 still acceptable ? Help me push the buy button. please.
