Yesterday was a marathon install. All this went into the car:
Blouch Evo III 16G
Slowboy Racing EWG Uppipe (Invidia UP modified for 38mm EWG)
Turbo Concepts 38mm EWG
APS Turbo Inlet
GrimmSpeed 3mm Phenolic Spacers
DomTune Boost Control Solenoid
Modded stock injectors (flow tested by Witch Hunter 822/816/816/814)
Spent about 15 hours total on installing everything on the car. Even though I know that they don't post here, I want to thank Tom, Jeremy, and Paul for all their help. I wouldn't have been able to do it without them. So much work but it is so worth it in the end. I think that I woke up Pat on my way through the neighborhood about midnight hitting boost in second gear so that I could open the EWG and hear that sweet noise. :flame:
There were some ugly things with the car that we fixed from the original owner:
Missing bolts that hold the fuel rails down
Turbo inlet was improperly installed and had a small leak
There were a lot of random bolts that were not torqued at all.
I think that the most fun we had was custom fitting my TXS DP so that it would coexist with the EWG setup with a BFH. :lol: It was not much fun when my Cobb SF v1 intake fell the hell apart when I was trying to reinstall it either. I am really thankful that we had some JB Weld laying around to fix it up with.
If anyone is considering a SBR EWG UP for 38mm WG don't. The dump tube rides extremely close to the axle. I am not entirely sure I am happy with it, but the car needed to be running for today so we heat wrapped the dump tube to keep the temps down right there.
I have just a few things left to install.
LC-1, Boost and EGT gauges, and clean up various hoses and stuff.
My first revision Dom Tune map is running great, but I can't wait to get it more refined with some more boost.
