Sweet, looks like I won't be having a problem after all. Actually this may be a bonus, my car is going to be at the strip a lot this year.

Thanks, Scott.

I'm still waiting on the MMR differential mounts to get here

But I have been working on two cars for a friend. He has a 1.8t Gti and E30. Though I would throw up some pics of the Euro crappers.

We just installed Samco coolant hoses on his crap box daily. 9 PIECES!!!c

The other car is a 87 325e with a stroker motor, HX-35 and MS-1




The motor was built by a friend of mine who now has one of the fastest E30's in the country.

We just got done wiring the car but are running into issues with the starter. It is getting a constant 12 volts but it not engaging when the key is turned. Other than that, it is ready for a test run. Best part is that this motor came out my friends old car (which ran a 6.8 @ 101) and he has two perfect tunes for it One for 300whp and one for ludicrous speed.








Once my MMR mounts get in I will have some more updates. I'll also post a first start of the E30 if any one wants to see it.

Was going to do the install today, but it was taco night at my bud's house. So install will be tomorrow.

GT5 is awesome, I recommend it.

I thought I had a minor exhaust leak, turns out I did. I guess these old studs in the FM3 manifold are ready for a change.

Got the entire thing out in about a hour and a half. Tomorrow I will replace the stud and install everything back in as one unit.

Should be a fun day. I'm going to use my entire gallon of simple green on the block and clean that bad bitch up.

I wouldn't come out at all. Fire of death was my last resort. My friend tried to get them loose for almost an hour before we resorted to cave man techniques.

I'm taking a break from torturing myself and decided to upload some pictures.

I to my manifold to a machine shop today and had all the studs removed and the threads cleaned. The guy gave me some new hardware and I walked out the door only having spent 15 bucks. So now I can get the whole hot side back in today...........NO MORE LEAKS

Worst down pipe ever.

Having already done this before, it was MUCH easier to assemble every thing as much as I could outside of the car. Unfortunately I had to detach the lower half of the down pipe, but no biggie. I'll have it all back in and hooked up by tonight.

Just takes patience and a few bloody knuckles.

Another method is to drill several holes and sawzall from on hole to another around the perimeter. The rest can then be chisled quite easily. Makes for a great pic though.

No more leaks. Except at your slip joint.

Also, that is some nawsty heat wrap there bro. Good idea though since they're rubber lines.

I thought it looked cool, lol. It worked, so I can't complain.

Hasn't leaked yet there, it is a very tight seal.

That heat wrap is all Flyin Miata, I traded some parts for this turbo and that is how it came. Seams to work well, but I am going to switch to either hard lines or SS lines like I have for the oil.

Didn't get a hole lot done today, spent most of the day working around the house and made a trip into Key West. But I did manage to make some progress.

Hot side is almost all in and plumbed up.

That's it for today. Tomorrow I will finish re-installing the turbo kit and then(for the last time) put the rear end and drive shaft back in place.

I'll snap some more pics, as well.

Took a few days off. Now I'm back at it.

I over nighted a new set of axle nuts. Price was so cheap that I didn't mind paying for the shipping. The closest store that had them was in Miami and they wanted five days.

The quality was really nice. Plus I didn't have to bend the threads with these.

I had to pull the studs to get the down pipe back on and situated. Putting them on was not as bad as I thought. Double nut method worked well.

I want to really bad. Nearest reputable shop is about four hours or so away. If I can get in on a south Florida dyno day that would be perfect.

Due to some recent name calling (*****, ****, honda) I have finally decided to install my big injectors and start running north of 15psi. I definitely want to see what I make when I max the 2554 out. Then after that I will start working on my bigger setup and start shooting for 400~whp
