3rd day driving the car :)

So far so good, the cabin is HELLA loud. but i still have all my tools inside the car and zero interior. I will be working on that this week, a good clean up and start putting the interior back in.

I'm pretty sure i have a vacuum leak around the intake manifold, i will swap in new metal manifold gaskets instead of the plastic ones and see if that was the issue.

finished 300 miles on the car last night.

im having trouble with heat on idle after a few minutes or very slow traffic but zero troubles when moving.

averaging around 12MPG thanks to this cold (-20C weather) we have over the last week.... ?

leaning out at what sort of load psi? I'll tell you that you will need a larger pump probably than the 340 you have. Good thing you got the radium hangar. I'd suggest a walbro 450. you should be able to have the 340 toggled on a Hobbs switch. there may also be another way to trigger it. so running 2 pumps.

I should update my OP - I'm currently running a Walbro 450 and a 2nd 450 currently on the way to me.

Running out at 15psi, which makes zero sense.

I had a similar issue and it turns out, my 450 was bad.

I am running a Radium hanger with a single hardwired walbro 450 and at 28-29 psi it was leaning out really bad(14:1 AFR)
After a bunch of troubleshooting, i decided to just swap the pump out to test and I was back to normal AFRs.

Long time no updates.

I found a wild deal on a Xr8267 so I snagged it.

Now I have both 450 pumps in the hanger. I will be changing the primary pump to a 525 and then having the 2nd 450 kick on via a Hobbs switch.

Fuelling has been upgraded to 8AN feed line and 10AN return line.

Car still leaning out going into boost (running 1 pump). I will be swapping out the aeromotive FPR to something else to see if this is the issue. I did hook up my 150psi fuel pressure sensor, just have to wire it up now to track .

I went with a fore Innovations fuel regulator on the recommendation of my tuner. My fuel pressure is rock solid. F2i Fuel Pressure Regulator

hey i just saw that you have cts-v brakes on it. Do they clear 18's are they wider than stock brembos? I'm thinking that may be my next upgrade, but I want to know if they fit.. if they need a bracket, and any other associated information.

I believe I finally found the issue.

After turbo swap, the battery light and rear diff started flickering then went away few minutes later.

Yesterday it became more apparent so I started logging battery voltage and behold 11.5volts at all RPMs.

Now it’s barely keeping them battery in the high 10s. Ordered a high output alternator (200A), then I’ll diagnose fuelling some more IF that’s not the problem.

It needs a bracket to be made.

18’s in terms of diameter are okay, but you do need a little more offset.

It barely clears my 10jj +32
