How many ports on the wastegate? If it's dual port, then you want a 4-port MAC. 46A-AA1-JDBA-1BA.

Wastegate has 2 ports.
35A-AAA-DDBA-1BA has 3 ports, and it's connected just like the Diyautotune MAC solenoid.
In, out and vent.

What am I missing here?

A 2-port wastegate can can take pressure on either side of the diaphragm, so you can use a 4-port solenoid to supply boost to either open it or help keep it closed. This makes boost control work better.

I mixed the two...

That youtube channel has examples of this as well. Types of medium he used etc.

He ran a huge multi bucket setup outside of his home that put out some very large veggies.

Pro tip:

If you are planning to commit murder, or have recently committed murder, do not post a photo on Facebook of yourself, the victim, and the murder weapon.

Make sure you're not wearing the belt you have used to strangle the victim in a photo taken with the said victim that you have posted on facebook for all to see.

Or, something to that effect.

....also, either leave your phone somewhere else, or turn it off long before being in area of committing crime. People seem to be unaware that it can be tracked even if it's "not being used".



What's been going on nukkas? Oh how strange it be to be back in The South. I'm still critically low on motivation pertaining to tinkering/driving the car......the MSM isn't bad, it needs some better parts, but I miss the punch I got in return for using my right foot in the '02

I see I posted on here a little over a month ago....which I totally forgot about....but given a recent 3-day hospital stay, the shitty memory now has a serious medical diagnosis I get to look forward to from now until the end. Yay, more drugs. Joy. I had seen a couple of neurologists in recent-ish time and had explained stuff, let them do their thing, and then expressed my suspicion of a particular condition...to which they didn't agree with and try any type of treatment because it never showed up on tests. It turns out my spidey sense was spot on.

So far the new job is still going well. It's nice to use my skills and interest of tinkering on **** to run this production tool, and the owner be happy to let me do so. On top of that, it seems I now get to add the title of "production manager" to my resume. Ugh, need to get back into some habit of having some time to pickup the laptop and post on here again......maybe if/when they finally give me a computer in my production area at work, I can sneak some postings in while at work like I did for years when I worked at Dish Network. On top of running production, they want to have me kinda take charge/monitor workplace safety at our location and at the production facility over in SC....apparently based on my attention to detail (aka just being tedious lol). And to add a cherry to that previously mentioned top, now it seems they're interested in me performing some photography work for them. I did take some product pictures before leaving work on Friday, did some editing/processing to them today, and will show them tomorrow to see what they think. Without giving away any information about the company, here are 3 (of 8) pictures of texture/color samples I'll be presenting to see if they'd want me to do more for the company-

I didn't know you spoke Spanish. No wait, I recall you were at the press event in Spain for the ND MX5 release.

Looks like fun.

Just finished all 19 episodes.
Damn.

No spoilers, but that could easily be the coolest thing on TV.

No "Temporada 2" on Netflix, and that's not cool at all.
You finish the first "season" and find yourself jonesing and combing through torrent sites for the rest.

So is that your new TV endeavor or am I looking in the wrong place?

No, it's just that I enjoyed "La Casa de Papel" a lot.
Season 1 is on Netflix, definitely worth your time.

The new show I will be *ahem* starring in is called "Water Walk".
Turkish title will be "Water Wars". We will be shooting the pilot in Niger in February, and I have to get about a dozen shots on Thursday.
It's basically a story of some smartass Turk (that would be me), an expert on all things water related and a doctor, driving around in Africa, helping villages without water by either digging wells, diverting creeks, installing some means to transfer water, etc. etc...
I'm told each subsequent episode will be shot in a different country.

Also, a very cool thing happened. They told me they would like to work with me in as many projects as possible.
Exciting times.

Aaand, my turbo project is moving along nicely.
May have to go slow (because TV work) but I am learning a ton, and trying very hard to avoid stupid mistakes.
It will be one hell of a flamboyant setup.

I don't, and I feel I'm missing something obvious. It's all related to that Junkyard Wars type TV show, right?

No. It's about a TV show from Spain he's a fan of.

The wife's new ride:



2016 Camaro SS w/2SS package, magnetic ride, auto and dual mode exhaust. Someone's license is going to be in trouble. It's fun watching the motorized top work after operating a Miata top.
