Mmmmmm I can't wait for this to make loud noises! Only manifold that deserves to be paired with this bad boy is an ARTech

Timing belt finished up today! Looks a lot cleaner with the wrinkle coated valve cover on there! Hope it fires up tomorrow without any problems lol

I just looked back at your thread and saw you used the same paint... How has it held up since last May? Yours came out really good too! I cant wait to get everything together.... I am guessing by this time next year I will have everything I need to put my set-up on the car. Still need ECU, Injectors, BOV, ARTech exhaust, and a bunch of other misc bits lol.

Ohhh ok well I prob have almost 300 on mine already and i'm driving it daily.... So I will let you know lol


Arrived to work today to a 1' rod that came in the mail. I cut it down to the proper length I finally was able to mount my Grimmspeed IWG bracket. No welding needed for this turbo. Now today I just need to walk into Home Depot with my turbo in hand to find some hardware for my flange adapters.... I imagine I will get a few looks walking through a store holding a Turbo, but it is what it is lol

Also, I forgot to update earlier in this thread that a friend of mine gave me his Hallman MBC that he used to run on his Evo, but no longer needs it after changing his set-up. Gotta love free parts!

Got the flanges mounted after a quick trip to the hardware store for the allen bolts. She is all ready to head over to ARTech!

So I was making a list today on paper for the hell of it to see what I have and what I still need and figured id post it here as well. Please let me know if you see anything I am missing here. I am trying to get an idea of when I think I will have this set-up ready to put on the car, and how much more money I need to spend.

Have:

- ARTech Manifold/ Downpipe (Ordered, should have in May some time)
- T25/28 Churbo / IWG bracket
- Tial EWG
- Intercooler piping kit
- K&N filter
- HAllman MBC
- Walbro 190
- 1/2 of the coolant re-route parts I need


Need:

- MegaSquirt
- ID 725's
- ARTech Exhaust
- ARTech Oil / Water lines
- Precision IC
- Tial Q Bov
- Gauges (Boost, Wideband, Oil temp, water temp)
- BEGI re-route spacer/ block off

Please tell me if there is anything needed that I don't have on my list (Strictly turbo-related). I still have a torsen/suspension/wheels in my radar for the future, but the turbo is being sorted first.


Also out of the Ish I still need... What is your vote for what I should get next? Not that it really matters haha

Teaser pic before I throw it in the car... No gauges yet unfortunately. I will be getting a boost, water temp, and wideband to go with my useless volt/narrowband combo gauge lol

Blahhh went to install it and my tombstone panel tab's wont push into the ports because these tab's on the surround are blocking just a bit... Looks like i'll have to take a dremel to the tabs to get the tombstone panel to fit properly. Thankfully I already shattered my old tombstone panel when I installed the radio the first time lulzzz... that was a fun time. My new tombstone panel passed my stress test and didn't break when I just tried to force it on before I realized that something wasn't right!

Trimmed the tab's and it fit's perfect! Just need to fill the holes in with some gauges.

Yeah and the good thing with putting your gauges there is that you can pull power and ground out of the power window connector that lives right in front of the shifter, the connector is just a housing for a group of female spade connectors, male spades go right in perfectly, this is one of the time its fine to use spades when wiring a car.

Just remember to not ground the wideband there, follow the instructions for that since a small voltage offset can cause an important change in that but boost, oil pressure or voltage being off a 0.1 volts is not a big deal.
