Overheating at the track.

Once I went MS I had about 3-4 different electrical problems that caused it to run on 2 cylinders. Everything from sticking injectors to a faulty COP harness. That was a pain.

For me it was the rattle I could not find for three years, it was a cracked manifold which I had welded up... there was no way to see it while it was on the car. Now I'm getting a clunk from the rear when going from reverse to first, like after backing out of the driveway, I'm thinking bushings somewhere or a u-joint

The absurd amount of random fittings/hoses/brackets/connectors/clamps that this turbo setup is taking.

I knew it was going to be like this... still doesn't make it any more pleasant.

I was going to ask the same thing before I googled it. Nothing but this thread popped up.

I hate 4th gear during downshifts. It wont go straight it anymore! And one day my gas pedal went really soft somehow. I have to push it in at least 1/2 an inch before the throttle opens. It kinda pisses me off but I've been too lazy to *** wit it. The part of the dash closest to the window is cracked to ****. Thanks to the exhaust.

I had flange warping problems with my tubular mani and pump gas. warped both flanges on the mani twice. switched to e85, more advanced spark map and begi cast mani. all good now.

Had a transmission oil leak. Took apart and reassembled with new sealant. good now.

Had a tiny coolant leak a few months ago. Seemed to be coming from the brand new pump (that I put on less than a year ago). Took off pump and replaced all seals/gaskets/etc. Was great for a few months.

Now I'm noticing a drop or two of coolant on the floor every now and then. Not any more than that, and not every day. Just randomly every now and then. WTF

So I feel ya on the coolant bullshit.
Valve tick is also annoying, but not that bad.


Otherwise since the build and 30r I am MORE THAN HAPPY to report not much else has been bothering me. Haven't really even opened the hood for quite some time now aside from to check the oil and coolant level. So can't complain too much

I have them in my car and they make no noise at all. Most people don't apply the lube stuff that it comes with. You lube it up good and all is well.

Crap fuel economy (less than 20 MPG) and a general "engine-like" smell coming into the cabin.

I have the most god-awful vibration at 4k - a typical cruise rpm - which I can't source. I thought it was my supercharger, but that's no longer on and it still does it :(

Hoping the addition of a manifold brace a-la OEM will fix it.

Rear main seal leaks. I did the clutch, replaced it, and it still leaked. Blew the engine, replaced it on the new engine (50k mile junkyard engine) and it still leaks. FML

Not knowing the "right way" to wrench- knowledge of shortcuts, mechanical sympathy, what various things in my engine bay were etc. Having zero experience before my car is the cause of that. Seriously, when I got my turbo kit, I had like 30 wrong parts shipped to me and I couldn't figure out what the **** was wrong. That turbo kit install was a frustrating time.

Electrical gremlins
-CAS
-o2 sensor
-ISCV
-TPS
-ECU (possibly a second ECU)
-Fuses
-MAF
-Possible temp sensor
-Coil Pack

I am seriously considering buying a complete set of sensors and such just to have as spares for when more things fail.
