Just gotta throw the bumper back on and throw the radiator in but im gonna wait till it runs to make sure I have no major leaks or anything.
I had to buy a 3.25x 3.0 reducer to come off my tb, besides because my egr is deleted the pipe didnt even come close to reaching.
Only thing I am a bit worried about is how close the intake pipe is to the downpipe. I will get a bit more clearance I think once the tranny goes in and picks up the back end of the motor.
Also the piping on the inside of the fender is close to rubbing and I am afraid its going to rattle once the engine is running
Well I had my exhaust done today
3.5" - > dual 2.5"
its amazing how quiet it is, in the car you can barely hear it running.. well until the wastegate opens up and it sounds like a dumptruck.
Might have to put a muffler on it or something.
On a side note alot of you guys were right, the dropoff between gears is horrible.. almost feels like the car shuts off between shifts.
Car is runnign abotu 10pi of boost, feels slightly slower than it did with the blower on it though, might have to up the boost.
Spent some time on the Dyno
Well shes running, I just took her out for the first time... its a weird feeling driving the auto. I ended up having to mount the 1/4 stick into the ashtray.
I had to fill in the stock shifter hole so I figured it would be a good place to put the tranny controls.
No one makes a shifter delete plate unfortunatly
Here is what I came up with..
Digging around at work I found a piece of plastic, not sure what kind.
Here it is mounted, I dont really like the way I used the screws but it works for now
Made it to the track
Well I decided I want to route my wastegate back into the exhaust.. tired of the #### sounding like a dumptruck under boost.
I called up Darin @ RPS and got a bunch of pipes and the fitting to go to the wastegate.
I am not the best welder by any means and I dont have a pipe bender so I am gonna do what I can, I will prolly take it to a pro welder when done and have them tig weld all the seems nicely.
I am still looking for a good way to separate it from the DP because I cant find a 1.75" band clamp... but for now I will probably just weld it in place and then cut it when the time comes.
The pipe will run under the k-member and connect into the exhaust.
More pics to come as I get further along
I decided I didnt like how the intake pipe was, the problem was my EGR delete spacer made it so the pipe didnt reach, and no one makes a 3.25-3.00 right angle long reducing silicone elbow so I redid the pipe, I also cleaned up the engine bay quite a bit.
So I wanted to redo my wastegate routing
Exhaust runs through the k-member now, used wastegate flanges for the joints
