Silicone Intakes sells fuel pump brackets that you can buy to attach your fuel pump to the bulkhead. I ended up buying one of those, and having fabbed up this bracket, the fuel filter is solid. and wont go anywhere now.

Been a couple months, but so far everything has been great. I been DD'ing the car 64 miles a day getting ~15 mpg on E70. Lots and lots of backroad pulls. I love the EFR so much.

Seems like I may need to pull my gas filler neck and take a look cause I can only fill my car up 3/4 a way and it overflowed the other day onto my quarter panel.

Also, this happened


I paid it off 2 years 3 months early. I'm no longer modding Capital One's car! haha

So for awhile now my AP wideband signal has been off by about .5
This is from AEM's website



Turns out, when I do this, my wideband will read 14.7 but the AP reads 15.2
Consequently, I am running richer than I should.

I did not notice this as I never monitored the wideband from my AP, but used it to send logs with it to my tuner. when he was seeing commanded 11.7 AFR for E85, I was seeing 11.2. Ugh.

After doing some googling, turns out sometimes you need to scale it correctly. some people were seeing it off by about .2 and others by a full point. At any rate, I hope this saves someone else the headache.

Pardon the crappy pic. its a video I took from my cell phone.

I have decided that 2019 will be "no more leaks" year. I am tired of having misc leaks here and there.

I noticed a week or so ago that my turbo oil feed banjo had a bunch of oil crud around it, almost like it was sweating. This is what I was using, there was a crush washer on the bottom it just fell when I was taking it off



The orifice seemed really small for a turbo feed and I looked to make sure it didn't have a restrictor built in. I ordered a 4AN to M12 x 1.25 fitting from Summit racing.



There is only a little oil around it and I cleaned it up nicely. It leaked a bit on startup, so I tightened it down about 1/4 turn and so far no leaks.

I bought some UV Dye to put in your engine that will help you find leaks and when I took off my oil fill, I noticed a bunch of water/oil accumulation in the cap



The UV Dye is pretty cool. I put it in the oil, then drove around a bit. My buddy let me use his lift so I got underneath and noticed my oil drain is sweating too. Sigh

I also found a leak at what looks like my oil pan gasket by the flywheel, but it was very small. I am going to take a look again this weekend after driving it around this week.

Car still running great. Oil feed is solid, and I'm super happy with it. Oil drain is still "sweating" but I'm waiting for warmer weather before I do anything.

I did notice my cold oil pressure has been a bit lower lately. Usually its 90 psi cold start, 70 psi above 2500 RPMs and 20 psi warm idle

lately its been ~83 psi cold start, ~65 psi above 2500 and 20 psi warm idle. Could be just fluctuations in the sensor.

The sensor is in the rear galley plug.

I also got this



Wifes new DD. 11 WRX Premium with 67k miles. Paid 15k for it. Car was dealer maintained for years and owned by a lady. Only has Cobb SF intake and OTS Stage 1.
