I lost a timing belt in a similar fashion, some random ass bolt got caught in the guide. I got HELLLLLLLAAAAAAA lucky.

Changed oil on the car. 3500 miles on this OCI. Amsoil 0w-40 and a Wix 57712 oil filter.

my new DD is ready to go, so I need to get emissions then I can start driving her next week.

Installed my grimmspeed MBC and hooked it up. So glad that annoying flutter is gone. Feels like boost response is better too.

Only a few logs in with my new tuner and the car already feels like a different animal. I know Eric @ Torqued Performance is highly regarded but I can't believe the difference so far

So the turbo is a touch laggy, however, I can't go any further until fueling is addressed. At a minimum, he'll need to hardwire the fuel pump, but of course I am recommending a Walbro 450 and an adjustable FPR and going Flex Fuel.

Altitude isn't helping the spool, but I think if anything is going to happen, it will be a good bit more boost on E85. I keep timing low via global timing removal during tuning, so things like this below aren't a complete self destruction.




I'm sure it feels pretty good up top, but certainly more to be had.
