    sorry to here some parts and bolts are giving you some trouble...

    I'm going to do some sway/endlink install soon. Got all the parts in, just gotta get some time off work. Hopefully Thursday afternoon.

    I'm wanting a catch can now. I do like how you have it run. I wouldn't want to put it on the turbo inlet but that's just me. I don't like putting my hands down there. I always feel like I'm going to snap off a plastic connector or something and have to replace a PITA part.

    I like to keep my engine bay clean. A little trick I use is getting two spray bottles from the dolla sto and filling both up with water then add some dish soap to one of them. The spray bottles are nice if you can adjust the output to be a stream. Hit it with the soapy stuff, let it soak a few, scrub the caked on stuff, then come back and rinse with some streaming spray and it'll knock a good bit of dirt/grime off. You should be fine with all the liquids as long as you don't hose down your electrics or air filter.
    This is great for cleaning off the brake and clutch fluid caps, gets most of the junk out of the letters and everything.

    hmm where would u run the other tube to? connecting it to the turbo inlet was very easy and if you look you can see the big tube it connects to on the inlet. very easy to push on there and its a thicker plastic so i wouldnt worry about breaking it

    Soo got my shiny new Perrin 22mm rear sway. installed smoothly, great fit, 2 license plate frames and some stickers they included so was happy with that. Installed everything and then noticed the one bolt on the mount looked loose. so go to tighten it up it spins then gets tight, go to turn it a quarter turn CRACKK.. FFFFUUUU. So the one thing i posted about earlier was i didnt like how Whiteline didnt include the 12mm bolts that go in the rear sway mount to frame and u have to reuse stock or get new ones. Take the time and get new ones. Bolts are 11 years old so guess i shouldve replaced em anyway. So i uninstalled all the rear sway stuff and the mounts and getting new bolts that go into the frame. So probably Saturday ill get this bolt thats stuck in the frame out....just cant win. Then my flashlight wasnt fitting in the charger properly so i stabbed it into the wall...and put a hole in the wall.. so now have even more things to fix

    Well got some things done this weekend. For getting the bolt out of frame it wouldnt come easy. Heated with butane torch, no luck, heated with 02 acetylene torch, no luck. Had to undo the gas tank pipe that u fill in for more room to work. Stuffed a sock in the tank hole and the piping hole for safety. Car didnt blow up which is alright. So cut the bolt off flush with the frame, centerpunched the bolt, drilled two sized and rethreaded with a tap. Rear sway installed. used all new bolts on the mounts.


    She hit 95k sunday



    Cleaned the garage. Floor was disgusting from all the dirt, dust and rust. Red tool box is random tools. Black tool box under table is all sockets american and mm ratchets, wrenches 1/4, 3/8, 1/2 drives.





    Cleaned engine bay sunday. nowhere near Bill's condition but cleaner than most id say. when warmer out ill clean underneath with the hose and some simple green

    The other big one for me is when changing brake parts around that cause loss of fluid.
    Example: SS lines.
    1.) Order DOT4 quality fluid and lines. Buy fancy Craftsmen flare wrenches.
    2.) Attempt to get factory lines off with flare wrenches (or vice grips after failing). Strip 2/4 of them.
    3.) Reflare brake fittings that you broke.
    4.) After install, attempt to bleed lines
    6-15.) Continue to bleed lines. Get frustrated that the pedal still sucks. Possibly notice that a flare you did was leaking. This will require going back to step 3.
    16.) Run out of fancy DOT4 fluid. Go to advanced auto (if you have another car) to get cheapo fluid to finish brake bleed
    17.) Discovery your power bleeder doesn't work due to a missing o-ring
    18-20.) Pace around cussing, realizing you can't have working brakes until somebody will push a pedal for you (at 3am in morning)
    21.) Trick girlfriend into coming over, only to push brake pedal for 20 minutes while you (again) attempt to bleed brakes
    22.) Eventually, you see a small air bubble come out of a caliper, and the pedal turns to rock
    23.) Put wheels back on. Probably will have to rebleed once the ABS kicks in once or twice.

    That isn't including the possible tangent of a wheel stud breaking. And hence forth having a seized brembo caliper mounting bolt. And hence having to drill it out (somehow nearly perfectly) and helicoil it.

    Hahaha if u read back some posts I had some brake troubles as well lol. Caliper mount bolt seized. Then when rotors installed the rear scraped so had to cut the dust shield or I forget what it was lol but always problems with everything lol. I still need to drill out 2 broken bolts and retap the subframe to frame bolt the dealer stripped out

    stupid bolts... they should know better right?

    rear sway with chunky mounts looks smexy... I wish I would have done the mounts when I did mine. Oh well, guess I'll have to order some and crawl back under there...

    your bugeye is looking real mean, a good mean... keep fighting the good fight!
