Looks great man! You did a nice job welding the IWG.


I love the PLX DM100.

Aren't their sensor modules awesome looking?

Two things piss me off about my PLX gauges (and its only beacue they're so close to being the perfect gauges but missed 2 simple easily correctable areas).

1. WHO THE **** wouldn't put a wire disconnect on the back of the gauge.

2. As stated the sensor modules are amazing.... But did they not think of providing a way to mount them? They made them so you can stack them on each other.... but no way to mount them to anything.

End rant.

That said I would never choose another gauge over my PLX setup. They're not to expensive at $180 for the gauge and sensor (DM-5), provide an easy to read display, and are top notch quality.

The gauge is pretty nice. I agree fully with your points, however, I would have a few more changes. The key fob remote... Make that crap wireless! Too many USB connections. There is no reason one USB port can't take care of everything.


If I were to do it again... I'd do this:

Got the turbo in, just to take it back out. It hits in two places; CCV hose on top of block and oil feed AN connetion. The latter was solved by bending the feed line out of the way. I had already purchased the stainless turbo feed line from Blouch, so that's solved.

The CCV issue actually turned out to be good. I forgot I had a Crawford AOS to install and this prompted me to work that install at the same time. Had I installed the turbo first, it may have been extremely difficult to install the hoses afterwards (Not a fan of the included hoses). The real problem is that the 3/4" hose coming off the top is stiff and does not want to move. I purchased some hose online, but will go to the parts store tomorrow to see if they have any suited for oil. I'll extend the CCV lines and hopefully be able to get a light bend out of it to fit the turbo.

Here is what I'm referring to. Warning, iPhone pic... Wife took the Point-and-Shoot and I didn't want to break out the DSLR.

Turbo is in... I thought I was planning everything around bolt-on ease, but that hasn't been the case.

I went to put on the stock TMIC today and the upper coolant line from the turbo hits the TMIC. Also, the stock elbow from the TMIC-to-turbo is too short. I had planned on upgrading to a Process West, but have noticed the AMR is designed to fit around the coolant line my current IC is hitting (I fired off an e-mail to PW). WG also hits one of the PS lines. I'll figure that out after I prime and test everything working correctly.

As expected, I ripped ths stock inlet... Already had a replacement for that. Will install when I pull the intake for injectors.

Couple pics:

Since the water line on the turbo hits the TMIC and the elbow is now too short, we stopped and got some radiator hose to connect the turbo to the TMIC and didn't fully mount the TMIC. This is just a temp job to check for issues and to be able to move the car. After priming the turbo (disconnected green connector in passenger footwell and cranked quite a few times for 5-8 sec), the car fired right up. After getting it up up to temp, smoke was pouring out, but it was all from the ceramic coatings. I forgot to pickup a donut gasket, so there is an exhaust leak on the DP to MP... I kinda like the sound though....

Default Re: yamahaSHO - Now with MOAR 20G!

Some random pictures now that it's back together. I will have to modify the upper turbo coolant pipe as the TMIC won't fit now (it's crooked). As soon as RSD has the Process West in stock, I'll place an order!









Mmmm... Bugs...

I'm so jealous... Do you avoid driving it in the winter, or do you have more tricks?

I don't drive this or the SHO in the winter. I bought a $500 beater for that.

Such a nice build you have. Clean and subtle.
