Engine is healthy, Compression tested at 180psi...no leak down test has been done yet thought.

Goal is to make this thing fun in a straight line instead of just the corners and Im thinking 240whp will do that for me

I mildly ported the wastegate as I plan to run 3" exhaust and have heard of boost creep issues.

Next up was to get a manifold. Ended up buying a BEGI cast turbo manifold without EGR or EGT (I may tap it for EGT later)

Order some turbo coolant Banjo fittings from ATPturbo. Picked up some 6an "NHRA Approved" coolant hose and some DEI cool tape from Summit Racing and made my turbo coolant lines. The clamps are 3/8" Fuel injection clamps

Picked up some 650CC EV14 style Injectors from Fuel Injection Clinic. Was originally going to buy the ones FM sales made by deatchworks till I found out they were older EV6 style.

Got the PNP harness for them aswell. saves me from having to hack my wiring up too much

The plan is to do an "over the rad" intercooler setup using 2" piping. I picked up my piping from Speedwaymotors.com, for both pieces it came out to under $50 shipped

Crappy picture but this is the Detcan I made. The copper tubing, Fittings and clear hose all came from Home Depot. I bought a cheap mechanics stethoscope from Harbor Freight. This thing should work well when it comes to listening for detonation. I had my girlfriend hold the copper piping and scrap her fingernail on it and I could hear it easily. I have yet to drill a hole in it yet for mounting, unsure of exactly where I'm going to bolt it to at the moment

Aren't bkr7e's 2 steps colder than stock 1.8 plugs? I remember reading somewhere that stock 1.6 plugs (bkr6e) are 1 step colder for a 1.8.

I doubt it matters at all though, that said - I'm running the same plugs in my 1.6.

My understanding is that they are 2 steps colder than stock, Which is fine with me. I plan to buy some Toyota COPs here soon. went to my local junkyard the other week and couldn't find any. I can get brand new ones for dealer cost but haven't checked how much that would set me back yet

Ordered a blow off valve tonight. Went with a plastic Bosch unit that Audi uses. Bought it new from a European car parts sight (Volvo Parts, BMW Parts, European Car Parts | FCPGroton.com) brand new for $38 shipped. It will be setup for venting to atmosphere. Ill be running Megasquirt so no need to run it recirculated
