Not much in the way of updates but I recently took a Project Engineer role for an automotive Tier 1 in SW Michigan... Hauled the car out and got situated.

Still have major oil leakage and what I thought was from the turbo drain may actually be rear main. Cam is still leaking. Going to pull the engine and fix everything. Starting to wonder if the exhaust venturi can keep up under all conditions, and maybe I'm building crank pressure (blow seal out). So, I'm going to put a check valve and VTA if crank pressure exceeds atmospheric. Then I'm going to plump in a temporary gauge to monitor crank pressure.

Working on the tune, slowly but surely.

Advanced keys stopped working after the rewire, so I still need to fix that... Though I'm confident the actual module took a crap.

Wheels showed, so those will get tires mounted tomorrow.

Can't get better pics until the engine is back in and I can roll it outside. Pretty sure front is going to rub on lower control arm.

Oil leaks fixed... Too much crankcase pressure and it blew the seals out. Vibrant e-vac is not doing its job and I'm the idiot that didn't get a vac gauge on it to confirm it's pulling vac through entire range. Temporarily band-aided my breather system.

Wheels fit perfectly. No rubbing anywhere. Grip like I've never felt in my life.





Before anyone asks, I'm waiting to do a turbo before I install the air to water setup. I need to be able to clock the compressor housing for piping. Earliest will be late summer but it will likely be a winter project.

Coilovers are next, to fix saggy butt. Then axles, then turbo.

What turbo are you planning on?

Haven't decided yet. Wasn't looking for big HP and I wanted to keep peak torque below 4k rpm (and ideally over 500lb-ft wheel)...but with these cams, that's probably not going to happen. If it looks feasible (when I get it on a dyno), I'll do a GTX3076. If not, I'll just go ahead with a GTX3582 and bump Rev limit to something like 8500rpm.

Mmmmm GTX. Stock location or rotated? From what I've seen from the different dyno graphs, the torque comes in earlier.

It's hard to really gauge it, obviously, because setups/dyno's are different. But it's something I'm acutely paying attention to as well, being that I'm stock heads/cams.

Stock location. And when I say below 4k, I mean to say below 3500ish--where it was before blowing up. Was awesome having that kind of torque on tap, in traffic.

Their dyno was clearly garbage but my butt dyno said low end was good.

Exactly, I want that low end torque as well, it's just more fun.

That looks like 429 torque at like 3.2k?!?

Yes, and it feels like I'm still around that with the current setup. Just want more...

That's dream worthy. LOL I can't even fathom that much so quick, at the moment. But I know what you mean by wanting more, it's always a battle of wanting more. At least for me it is.
