IT RUNS!!!! AAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHAHHAHAHAha I so happy. Heres a crappy video of this morning on my way to work. Its running stupid rich so I need to tune. Start up is rough and I need to tune that as well. Gonna change the spark plugs also. The things I cant understand is this:



Why the hell am i getting what looks like grease coming out of the compressor inlet. I have a rivet-restrictor on the turbo and little compressor surge. I just loosened the blow off so im sure thatll help. The other thing I still dont understand is why i see a light cloud of oil coming through the catch can filter.



And I got my hood on lastnight. I had to take the upper intercooler shroud off to get it to fit but it works good so far. Im gonna re do the intercooler and the intake manifold as phil just got me a BLOX one for cheap.
