i should be his savior haha! zero parts to remove, nothing to go wrong and diagnose. if he needs to theres only a few things it could be instead of dozens. i like to simplify

That'd be funny, "my car broke, didn't think I needed these parts, can you help me?". "sir you need the gas tank, cylinder heads, radiator; I no you want to lose weight but they are needed!"

Update

first i threw another CEL today for the evap system, P0457, fuel leak detected (fuel cap). i thought id through something like this because the gas tank can now vent to atmos. if i let my car sit for a month i bet the fuel tank would empty but im sure it would take forever. since i drive a lot im sure i wont lose that much between fill up's.

next i finished up the JDM manifold. had to make a new vaccum line port, block an old one, custom made a mount for my 3-port, mounted the AEM 3.5 bar MAP, custom made a riser for a STI fuel rail because i needed both fuel rails to have an in and an out. the JDM OEM has the FPR on the one end and i couldnt use it. i had to cut and flare the ends so the fuel hose wont pop off, i also paralleled the fuel lines and wrapped them in plastic loom protecter stuff, and finished off the 12mm to 10mm TB adaptor. its good to be done with this!

going nuts. cant get a hold of either tuner to write me a limp map so i can get to my tuner! i want to install everything but cant yet! hate waiting.

painted my front bumper inserts. i was going to vinyl wrap them but i figured it would be really hard for me to tackle alone because of the way the are. picked satin black so not everything is flat black and i dont like gloss black which the one part of the front grill is. i also got my hand grinder and shaved the back of the passanger insert. it was solid plastic. now there is a decent size hole for my CAI it get air from. im pretty sure ill cut the bumper to make the hole even bigger because as you can see its blocking air.

AAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL DONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

omg what a shitty 2 days. decided to do everything sooner than planned. started at 11am first day and ended at 3am. then 12pm then next day and ended at 1am. so so so much to do by myself. full list of what i had to do...

swap manifolds and reverse the JDM
finish and redo the TB adaptor!!!
customize OEM FPR with welding and locating
run fuel lines
remove air pump system
make and customize FMIC piping to fit
find all air leaks from FMIC couplings and clamps, T BOLT CLAMPS CAN SUCK ***************
remove power steering pump and bracket to get the hard 3" inlet pipe to fit, also dent it a little to make it fit.
install AEM 3.5 bar MAP and run wires to make new wire harness
install light weight pulley
install ELH
install EWG UP and EWG and run lines
install CAI
lengthen MAF wires and TB wires, PITA and takes time, boring work
replace coolant that got away when unplugging some lines for more room
zip tie 100 things
replace bolts that got rusted and needed cut off
and last find little crap here and there that needed done or redone and once its all done check and check and check again!!!

after that nightmare start logging and got about 6 revisions from Eric Minehart from Torqued Performance to get everything running smooth and clean. im really happy now and Eric is a great guy to help out with all this!

next step going to my tuner here and seeing what it will put down. he has a mustang and dynojet so we can compair the dyno's. last tune on my 09 was 330/360 on the dynojet and i didnt have ELH, 3" inlet, 3.5 MAP, 750cc injectors, TGV less. this should be interesting

How did you make the new cold side IC pipe? Use the same aluminum brazing stuff? Just curious, that's what I'm thinking about trying out when I do all my IC piping to save some weding shop cash if it works/holds boost.

i took the wrx and sti piping and started cutting where i needed bends and stuff. the MAF housing i did add 3" to both sides and yes i used the brazing stuff. then im slowing starting to get rid of all the couplings so ill be brazing that as well. heres one so far...



its kinda hard to use, just takes time. i started with propane then went to MAP gas. i found that putting a layer on both sides of the crack first then filling in the crack with a back and forth motion works best. you can only do about an inch at a time because the pipe isnt hot enough further away. BUT the pipe is hot enough in that area that round pipe wants to drip and flow down the pipe instead of staying still. so i just go around the pipe 2-3 times and layer it up a bit like a thicker weld and just make sure to look for pin holes or any raised areas.

All I needed to hear, I was hoping to use the durafix's to make my own pipes. Sounds like it'll work then.
