    I'd recommend WTF tuning next time around. They make the engine knock down lower in the rpm range so it won't knock up high.

    All kidding aside, that sucks. Do you know that it was like that the entire tune? Or was it bad from the get go?

    Almost the whole engine is finished being put together. Setting up the perrin fuel rails in a clean fashion was super difficult.

    I screwed up one of the connectors for my new ID1000's... Kinda pissed.

    I think I'm going to cut off the TGV cables.

    it's in. I'm not done... but the engine is in. This time around I put everything on the engine (tgv's manifold, injectors, rails, turbo, and up pipe) before I installed it. Best idea ever. I was able to get the turbo on correctly so much easier than last time when the engine was still in the bay.

    As a matter of fact... I'd argue that it's easier to pull the engine to do the up pipe and big stock location turbo install than it is to do it on the block.

    Thanks!


    Got the fuel system (perrin fuel rails) almost all the way finished. In typical me style, I didn't have any of the fuel lines exposed... so unless you know what you're looking for... you'd probably never know the difference.

    Got the PS pump, Alternator, and AC compressor all installed as well as the radiator. Tomorrow will hopefully be quick.
