No, when it goes, all your oil goes with it.

So the injectors are ok? And are they that prone to breaking?

I'm kinda sorry to hear about you taking it to someone for tuning.. i was hoping we could say..

MS PnP so easy a RicAr: could do it!!

I guess that isn't going to happen now.

lmao thanks, and yes that is a red LED lol. Im taking it to him because i dont want to deal with all the tuning and hes the best around here, and im still noob at it. But hopefully i will get the hang of it and the guy will probably teach me a little.

Wow... Um where to start on this one?. You could have the ignition timing off and firing so far retarded that its burning on the exhaust stroke and headers getting hot. Or you f'd your injecter wiring and its spraying lean. Plus it sounds like you have a vac leak by the delay in the revs. If i where you before spending all that money recheck your timing to be 7* go over the basics because thats not a smooth idle.

Where's the Godspeed rad matched with "2 10 slim rad fans, red silicone rad hoses"? I see the hoses but that radiator looks very similar to the stock one sitting in my garage.

Ya im pretty sure my timing is fucked up, and it does sound like a vac leak but i cant find a leak anywhere i will keep rechecking though, and have to re-order new injector clips, because i believe i did wire the injectors backwards, so i guess im gona have to re-wire them ****...and my Godspeed rad is on back order for 6 weeks if you havent read it, well 3 weeks now probably, and the fans are sitting in the box waiting to be installed when the rad comes, hopefully my intake will still fit.

You set the trigger angle in MS by telling MS to hold timing at 10*. Then adjust your trigger angle until the crank pully matches 10*. Simple as that and there are two manuals telling you how to do it.

Take it to the shop. Without basic troubleshooting skills / general knowledge of fuel injection, timing, etc, you're in way over your head. You should also rethink your plans to turbocharge your car until you either find a local buddy to teach you and do the inevitable fixes that will be needed along the way, or just decide that you're going to pay to have it done.

Modding a normally aspirated car is one thing, turbocharging brings the complication factor to a whole other, MUCH less forgiving level. When you're 'building' a boosted car, the **** doesn't just magically piece itself together. There will be problems to work through, and nobody's born knowing how to do it.

Looks like it's going to take at least 3 people. 2 couldn't get the job done.

You just set the trigger angle, then go check the crank timing. Then go adjust it and check it again.
It takes me 3 tries to get trigger angle set perfectly. Your blind father is a unnecessary hassle when trying to set it yourself.
