Talking Re: t00mes 2007 OBP STI, ongoing engine rebuild. MOTOR IS ON ITS WAY HOME!!! SO CLOS

So the motor came in on Friday, I worked pretty much entirely by myself through Friday evening and Saturday evening. I am ready to drop the motor back into the car as soon as my throw-out bearing comes in the mail. I am not paying 150$ for a new one at the dealership.

Motor is in. All I have to say is FFFFU*******K twin disc clutches! I had to figure out the tricks with installing it to keep the clutch discs aligned an making the input shaft happy at the same time. Simple 1/16 revolutions of the crank made it slide in like it was coated with butter.

Time to hook up all the little stuff!

Just a question. Why did you go with the grimmspeed P&P Mani and Up-pipe opposed to any tubular headers out there?

Matt.

I went with a ported stock header because I didn't think that #1, the Dom3 would be making enough power to facilitate the need for a larger header pipe, #2 I wanted to avoid cracking due to higher EGT's that most aftermarket headers tend to end up doing. Plus I got them for 350 combined.

It was really hard to pass up a deal that well!

The only way I think I would get different headers is if I end up going with the APS twin-scroll kit. That way I would not have had to purchase multiple headers.

I was just checking. I also went with the Grimmspeed P&P Mani x-Pipe and Up-pipe after my GT Spec header took a **** on me at the track wasted my hole day! I would think this header would be perfect for an 18G

I haven't heard great things about the GT SPEC piping product lines, but then again, I may have only heard the misfortunes and none of the praise.

We will see very soon how this pnp stock manifold and up pipe does. I should be turning the motor over for the first time tomorrow and beginning break in.

Default Re: t00mes 2007 OBP STI, EFI Base tune. Full run to come in the next week or two.

Car has been running pretty awesome during break-in. I spent a few hours down at EFI Logics last weekend and had the guys take a look at my car. Chris did a base tune for me, but we found that the Perrin BOV (recirc) venting to atmosphere just will not work with a blow through setup. I have a TIAL coming from slowboyracing this week. Hopefully after I get that welded on I can push full tune.

Chris has thought my Grimmspeed high flow cross pipe was leaking after only 1100 miles. The tick sounded the same from day 1 to me and I even went as far as calling GS and asking if they have had any failures yet -- it turns out, I would be the first.

I might end up getting an equal length header before I go back down.

I need some serious suggestions on how to clean up the engine bay. Looks like a rats nest, the more and more I look at it
