Default I have been boosted. Finally

After two weeks of having the engine and tranny out of the car....

I replaced the T belt, all the seals, tranny seals, clutch, and motor mounts. I never did any of that before on my own, and I was sure I would have an epic fail scenario. The only issue was a I didnt have a heater hose tight enough and it leaked a little coolant during warmup. Fixed.

I installed the T3 set up listed below and here are some pics. It is running pretty good, but I have some Q's about the emanange ultimate. I will post those in the appropriate forum.

Thats the narrowband. The wideband is further down stream closer to the cat.

5psi for now. I am working on i/j lag times, and the car stumbles during hard acceleration, but does fine on a gradual increase. Tonight I got the I/J parameters to .68/2.72, and it is a lot better. That is when I was able to hit the 5psi mark. So, its coming along.
