2nd downpipe, just need to do the O2 bongs and figure out how I want the Wastegate to be. Hopefully I will start to install it this weekend.

Getting close, I have to relocate the expansion tank and get some oil line fittings

Well I did run it for a few minutes, but still have some things to finish up. I need the correct oil feed fitting with restrictor, a second egt sensor bung and finish the rest of the "legal" downpipe/exhaust. I really need to invest in a tig welder and try and switch mainly because I'd like to learn to weld aluminum.

To scoop, or not to scoop, that is the question. Looking for input. It would make the turbo function better but not sure if I like it. Just mocking it up before I commit to cutting the hood.

Well the car was running very well, and no more boost creep with the bigger turbo. So I started turning the boost back up. At 30 psi it was screaming and after a few pulls I noticed that when the engine went back under vaccum it would burn oil and clear out under boost. Since I am running a catch can that vents not to the intake the only thing that would do this is the valve guide seal. If I remember correctly the valve spring does not hold down the valve guide seal like most engines I think I might of lifted a seal under the 30psi of boost. Just starting to tear it apart to verify.

Also made a rc body to match the wide body going on the car. Its not a ti, but it's the closest thing I could find.

Put a hood dump on the car because it was rubbing the lower hose and co workers were egging me on to put it on the 2 step, and one of them filmed it.

I'd go old-school and blow out the passenger side high-beam for an intake rather than cut the hood.

Widebody time!

J!m 05-15-2020 05:36 PM

Looking at the rear, it almost seems the rear bumper cover should be sectioned and widened...

With so little "body" behind the rear wheels, the ti is tricky to do a wide body with.

It's still sitting high in the rear in that picture. May have to remake the rear splitter depending on how it sits once the quarter panel is cut. It can probably drop 3-4in from that picture
