I have no idea. I'm just glad it seems to be fixed now

The plan is to get the ms permanently installed into the car this wekeend. We'll see. I want to try to fabricate some brackets for this thing to bolt into the stock location. The case has NO mounting points or any accommodation for attaching it anywhere, which kinda blows, so I'll rivet on or bolt on something.

On another note, I'm shopping for odds and ends right now, and need some input:

1st, I'm getting these compressor adapters:
Kinda pricey at $65 shipped, but I REALLY like that they use o-rings.

Next, I need a turbo inlet/elbow, and I think I'm gonna go with this:

its 2.25" to match the 2.25" compressor inlet adapter

Next I need a filter. Found this little guy:

its also 2.25" to match the rest of the setup. this will be going into the FM airbox/heatshield thing

Lastly I'm looking at oil drain fittings for the pan. It has to be slip-on with one of those high temp silicone LOL hoses, which is 5/8". There is the one from ATP that I am considering,

but its $20+ship and I can find plenty of others for less money that are really similar,

like these
$17 and it's chrome plated brass


$15 also brass


only $9 and also brass



obviously the $1-10 bux savings is not a big deal, but if I can get the same thing, or possibly EVEN BETTER, for cheaper, why not?

Any reason anyone would go with one of these over the others?

Also feel free to comments on my "inlet setup" and the compressor adapters, maybe there are others that are better or cheaper that I'm overlooking?

The turbo inlet is 2", so I don't see any need to go to a 2.5" inlet like most (including FM) run, but if I'm missing something please point it out.

Yes, that's showing up correctly, and looks like a good assortment of parts.

Filter looks tiny, and those brass fittings should be available at your local HD.

I don't like angled fittings, as you need to sacrifice sealage for the correct angle. Straight fittings will work fine.

Are the O rings really needed on the two turbo flanges? I ran cheap ebay flanges there for about 3 years and never had an issue that I knew of.

Thanks, I'll check the local hardware store too and see what they got. Filter is 2.5" flange to match the rest of the inlet, and I just don't see the point in going bigger on the element? You think it will choke?

The fittings are angled only on the slip-on side, the thread-in portion is all straight. I figured if anything the angled slip on part should actually work even better, pointing straight to the turbo instead of to the side. ANd take up less space?

I'm sure the o-rings are overkill, but why not? No need for silicone, no need for gaskets, and easily re-usable with a perfect seal every time....
The only other adapters I found don't have o-rings or any of the hardware, and are only like $15 less. I dunno

When I get home tomorrow I will check and see if the stock fittings from Nissan had O rings or not.

They don't. I've a set, and I've a set of the used gaskets that came with them.

But....I mean....O-rings are awesome

O-rings are good idea! No messy gaskets to clean up either!

That actually seems like a decent deal for those flanges. I paid $80+ shipping for the ATP versions 8ish years ago for my B13 SE-R and they didn't even have the o-rings or hardware.

I've been pleased with those exact Kinugawa adapters. Mine were $57 shipped in 2013 and it's nice to have the odds and ends like o-rings as well as the included vac source fitting. Though I did end up having to buy an npt plug to seal the outlet hole because I moved the vac source to post-IC.

Only thing that wasn't great about them: the inlet flange is not that long, so squeezing on the t-bolt clamp over the silicone and under my .5" square rod wastegate adapter held by one of the bolts was tight. I made it work, its just not a simple slip on/off affair at first.

If your bolts are free of brackets, I don't see the inlet length being an issue.

the stupid P0010 cel came back today. It's been 2 months and at least a few hundred miles. Need to figure out what the crap it is before I do anything.

Story of my life

I'd use the 45* elbow if you can, that will be better and keeps the hose at an angle instead of vertical, so oil will flow down easier without backing up the hose.

Looks like P0010 means VVT hatez you!

Minor point. Although ATP says LOL is silicone, it is really Nitrile. It is a good rubber for hot petroleum fluids.

I have 18" piece I'll ship you for $10 total, if you want. I bought 3' and used half.

Thanks for the offer man, yeah I think I'll take you up on that. I'll pm you about it.


In other news: I think my P0010 issue is a loose wire on the ecu harness. The only thing that happened between now and hundreds of miles ago is I disconnected the stock ecu to try out the MS3, then plugged it in afterwards. I think one of the wires in the harness or plug is loose, cause today I disconnected, wiggled around, and plugged back in, and no more CEL.



In other news, I couldn't get myself to mount a baller $900 ecu with zip ties, so I did this:



OEM brackets, location, and mounting for the win

OEM location is absolutely FTW. I like my mounts, but I didn't want to cut up my factory set. Any chance you or your brother have a spare set around somewhere?

Also, does it run yet?

That's where I got these spare mounts
I'll look around for more, not sure if he has any that are not attached to a working ecu he's trying to sell.

Also, yes as of 5 minutes ago its in the car, it started, idled, and drove around the block a few times under MS3 control for the win

Haven't even touched the map yet, need to do the idle test/calibration, etc etc etc. Next week hopefully
