Just ordered a new boost gauge.




Picking up my modified fuel lid, fuel rail etc today. There wasn't enough room on the lid for the dual feed, the return, AND the power grommetts which are about 1.25" diameter FTL. So, I'm just going to run the stock wiring and relay for power to the pumps. Oh well. Two pumps should still provide than enough fuel even without better wiring.

Tomorrow I'll install the AFPR, new fuel lines, rail, cam gear and rescale the fuel map. Then I'll pull off the old hotside and put the new one on. I'm then taking it to a local shop "Benchmade Proper" who will do my hotside IC pipe for cheap and modify my downpipe for the two 02 bungs and slashcuts. They are also doing the exhaust. I think I will go with a "race muffler" plus a vibrant muffler painted black. It will probably end up looking fairly ostentatious.

Gonna have to order a 4" inlet k&n filter too, just not sure where that will go so I can't order it yet.

ARTech hooked me up with a bolt turbo mounting kit with bolts, nuts, spring washers, and resbond. Studs will apparently not work because of clearance issues. I ordered two kits because I will probably **** one up or loose a nut or something stupid

It's been too long since I drove my car. Getting anxious

Boost gauge only goes to 45psi.




That is not enough.

It will not be done before the dyno day. I bet a slice of pizza that it will not be running and making any power.

I'll bet a bottle of mcClellands Single malt islay scotch, but Min, if it's not running and you're at the dyno day, you have to drink 5 shots in a row for punishment.

Sure if it's not running I will open the day at 8am with 5 shots.

Mounted AFPR to ABS brain thing.



Going to pick up some better-angled fittings on Monday. I succeeded in pouring gasoline in my eyes while removing the factory fuel filter. After running to the bathroom, I permanently blinded myself with Dawn dishwashing fluid. While trying to flush the paper towels I used to dry my face, the toilet overflowed and flooded the bathroom. It's only midnight so the day can still get better.
