    so update. pulled the turbo today. didnt have a chance to work on any of the exhaust porting hope to do that this week if time permits. i got a few more parts in for the meth system today. hoping to finish up all the engine bay stuff in a week or so, then i plan of focusing all my time on wiring that and plumbing it in. idk if any of you guys have experience with water/meth injection but the top mount i have is tapped in the back where the silicone hoses bolt to it. is that to far from the tb for usage? and if so where would you suggest i tap in at. any way here are some more pics

    just about everything out


    new vs. old





    old ****ty oil line vs the new one from blouch

    so another update. i had a good night, i completed one of the three ports on the header. I started another but i need to get some sanding wheels so i can smooth out my work with the carbide bit. i was a tad nervous working on this but as the night progressed things got a lil more relaxed and the work got better. im hoping to finish these up and wrap them by weds or thursday. i am thinking of cutting off the stock mounting points for the heat shields since im not gonna be using them. i think it would look cleaner and make wrapping 40xs easier. i also completed wrapping my up-pipe and cross-pipe, and then i sprayed them with the silicone sealant. well i guess thats all there is to it tonight, enjoy the pics

    starting out


    just about done


    compared to stock (finished one is on the bottom)


    wrapped


    sprayed (gotta do the other side)



    stay tuned for another boring update in a day or two

    Nice detailed build. What kind of suspension and braking mods are you planning to go along with the new power?

    I am currently running stance coilovers with Perrin 22mm adjustable sway bars front and back with Perrin mounts and kartboy endlinks. I plan on buying all the poly bushings that turn in concepts offers...

    Brake wise. I am currently running Dba slot rotors with hawk pads (forget what kind) with the h6 upgrade in the rear. Next year I plan on getting wilwood bbk all the way around

    They are priced so well compared to the other big brake kits on the market. Like a 6/4 combo is the price of a front set of brembos

    so didnt get to work on the car a whole lot during the week between work and hanging with the girlfriend. but today i got to spend a solid 4 hours in the garage and damn did i do some work haha.

    well i actually lied i did get to work on it monday night for a little
    turbo inlet out (got pissed and started breaking it apart so excuse that hahaha)

    empty

    i went out a bought a dremel and some sanding disks. so here is the fist header all smoothed out



    so onto today(friday). it was freaking cold so i had to bust out the go old heater

    installed the new turbo inlet and silicone hose for the bov...man what a pain in the ass


    installed the remote sensor kit for my oil pressure gauge...tapped right out of the oil gallery plug


    then i started on the fuel system. dont have many pics because i really wanted to pay attention and make sure i didnt **** it up.
    here is the metal guard you need to remove to actually get to the injectors. i recommend that if you remove this you leave out one of the bolts that is on the bottom. its just about impossible to get out.

    the hole for the said bolt can be seen in-between the injectors, the hole to the left.


    new injectors have the orings.

    tried to take a good picture of the actual bigger injector, new 650cc has the oring

    up-pipe/turbo studs


    finished up header connection number 2...one more to go


    dont laugh the headers have all these nubs for the stock heat shields so i had to get creative with the heat wrap...and its tight so

    mounted the nozzle for the meth kit today



    thats all for today. hope to tear into some more **** tomorrow...hoping to have the turbo/exhaust in so i can focus on the meth kit and such
