Cool the modded stage 4 install....

its gettin there..i quit last night after 6 hours...i left at 11pm, after working on customers cars till 4......

got the VF22 on, the injectors, Rail, and intake work almost done..i couldnt stand up anymore...18 hours of workin on cars gets to you.

on a side note: i also managed to piss of the owner of my shop, since i had another WRX in the shop after hours. Chris came by to se how my install was doing, and mentioned that his header was leaking again. so, being the nice guy i am..i offered to fix it for him. big mistake. i got a asschewing over it, and it mad me SERIOUSLY think of the stuff i have been going through at work, and is making me do the long desicion of whether or not to start my own shop. the money is TOO good now, and i almost cant afford to leave, but i may have to and see if i can do it.

oh well....i should have this finished by mid week, if i can figure out why i am having these lash adjuster issues.......now the right bank head has a lot of valvetrain noise....arrgh!!! and yes, i am getting ready to be building a new longblock..the stock one wont last too much longer in this setup......


heres some pics...

Well, it's not running now, so....

You could push it across the finish line.... or tow it...

Sorry. Sometimes I just can't help myself.

dude..i almost HAD you!

now the mad scientist has to pull the engine, and replace the piston rings you fried.


but...Phil at TXS pointed to me the ign cut on the launch control may be the cause of my problems. the backfire is causing the valves to float out, spitting the shim out. so..we reinstall, and go to fuel cut for now.
