hey splitime, i had a quick question about the gtx valve cover your using. i recently got one and had it powdercoated in hopes of using it, but

what did you do about that rear nipple in the back ?

how did you mount the coilpack ?

and since theres no pcv valve, can you run a venting catch can directly to the nipple on the passenger side ?

spaced the questions out so you could answer them by copying and pasting

Put some RTV in it and pinched it closed. It happens to fit right between the 2 coils.

I used the bottom bolt hole and a small piece of 3/16th steel with 2 holes in it for the driverside mount. So from valve cover bolt to normal mount point on Coil pack holder.

I don't bother with PCV stuff on turbos... I'll be running the intake side valvecover vent to a catch can[/QUOTE]

Oh... we tried the other day to 'downgrade' my gt28 from an 83 turbine housing to the normal 64 turbine housing... but it didn't fit. Seems like I might have bought a gt2871rs instead of a normal gt28rs

Of course... we checked the housing on the turbo... after we welded the internal gate shut... and grafted a 3" Vband onto the housing itself. Anyone want a custom gt28rs turbine housing with a 3" Vband outlet?

Glad I can entertain while I build. The pictures are only a fraction of it... the wrenching is the best part

I'm thinking 250 will be quite fun. Possibly 300 on tap. Considering it'll be mainly on track abuse... I'm not really going to push limits often.

I worked on our condo the 4th... we are amidst prepping it for sale... i have 0 spare time .

So... I've got MS harness done (i think). I've got IM on for good, fuel rigged up and plugged in. Exhaust on and done... radiator mods finished... just doing hoses today, coolant fill... oil change... and maybe startup?

Still have seat/harness to finish... have to finish pulling abs junk. Also have roof air scoop to finish up. Then mount up my driving lights, bleed brakes and clutch slave... slowly getting there

All buttoned up.... leaks from rear fittings for coolant reroute. Took off... "fixed" leaks again... so i'll tackle that later.

No spark/fuel from car... either ground I can't find is off (car turns over) or I fugged up my MS harness.

make sure your fuel lines didn't get hooked up backwards.... that's probably the #1 offender.
