I know that feeling... you're on a better track for success than I am, though.

Good luck man.

Thanks, mate. Your IC should be there tomorrow at the latest I would guess. Unless they do something dumb and route it through MPLS or something.

If I set my cranking pulse width to 1ms and crank it for a good 20s or so that should be sufficient to prime the turbo and get everything lubed up for insertion, right?

Or crank till it builds pressure with your throttle opened over the flood clear threshold.

Ok, everything is in and there are a few leaks that I'll be working on tomorrow, but the car is running like garbage. I don't know wtf is wrong. It ran really well before I threw the turbo on, and I know that the turbo is obviously going to change things, but my idle is _really_ lopey and gross now.]

the idle bounces all around, and it straight up stalls sometimes.

See anything?

Yeah, for sure. I bought tunerstudio pro and had veal running all last night. Lots of red cells up in boost.

Everything was really rich when I was first tuning my n/a build as well.

I think next time I go out tho I will manually lean out some of those cells before my pull. Not too much, but a bit.. Veal is FANTASTIC but it takes quite a while to do what it needs to do (and I don't want to change the cell change resistance too much) and I think I can help it along a bit.

Thanks again to everyone here for all the help, and all the flames. They're helpful to keep us noobs from diving in headfirst into dangerous waters without thinking everything through.

After installing my EBC and turning the boost up to 11 I'm thinking it may be time to re-name her from Jasmine to Rajah--cuz the car is a friggen beast.
