Default tyson87's build

i know this thread is premature, but i keep getting all these presents in the mail.
first i wanna say thanks to:
brain (scott)
lev (phil)
splittime (dave)
dpexp (dan)
loustsoul (andrew)

THANKS for answering my dumbass questions!!!
but here is what i ordered
begi china 2854
begi cast mani
begi ss sg dp
lc1
knockoff type rs
ms built by brain
intercooler from cxracing

plan to reroute the coolant upgrade clutch, flywheel, rearend

i dont plan on going over 10psi until i save up enough money to do an engine build.


so i will start with a pic of somethings i got today and yesterday.

i bought an acer aspire one from radio shack for 80$ to tune with.
knock off type rs bov came in today looks nice, oh what mods do i need to do to the bov, i read that some of u guys take out a spring, but i havent had a chance to pull it apart yet.
lc1, sensor and gauge came yesterday.
charge pipes from columbia river came yesterday, i f'ed up and forgot a pipe so i had to place a whole nother order just for one pipe. $27 for a 90* bend geez.
megasquirt from brain came yesterday, for those of u that arent squirting, when ur ready, talk to him, fast shipping great guy.

i think thats everything.

Looking good so far Tyson. I need to pick up one of those tiny laptops soon. Do I see a PnP harness in the box still??

You know, every time I've seen or met Phil, he's wearing a red shirt

Glad to see you got everything in time for the weekend, what was the deal with the downpipe? Did you end up getting ahold of the guy or going over to his house to get it?

Let me know how that knock off BOV holds up.


Oh yeah, needs wire tuck

I don't need anyone on the interweb to know I am as nasty looking as my posts read.

so i need a clutch, decided to go with FM stage 1, i hope that after this goes in my 1.6 diff doesnt break...
also my WG flapper was hitting the DP flange and not opening all the way so i called corky and his idea was to run a second flange as a spacer... so i am in the process of putting that in while my car is parked.

That thing is a time bomb, I'd start planning to upgrade the diff ASAP.

yeah i am saving up for a new one. what do you guys think is a fair price for a complete swap?

on a sidenote, i ordered some slim fans today to start cleaning up the engine bay.
does anyone know if the standalone MS can handle the fans running if i wire them together?

sucks that FM is closed today i need that clutch. i hope i get everything done intime for the dyno day.

The fans would be ran through a relay. The fan current doesn't go through the MS, it just controls the control side of the relay.
