    Turbo oil return question

    Drill and tap the main bearing support plate in the same spot where the msp return fitting would be. You can use a 90 degree fitting, 1/2 npt to 5/8 hose barb. My buddies turbo P5 was same way and it worked fine.

    It was a rewarding feeling to have the car perform so well after all these years and countless hours spent making everything work. Fuel mileage has been exceptional as well averaging about 600km per tank!

    With racing being canceled this year thanks to the 'C-19 response' I had to get some fun in before the weather turns. Got some new tires and took the MSP on it's longest trip yet.. Drove a little over 1400 kilometres past Wells Gray Park and back. I was hoping to see some epic mountain views...

    No, it just didn't make it into the pics. Using the one included with the Perrin kit which bolts to the same location but is designed to accommodate the larger core.

    Pulled front bumper to install a side mount license plate bracket and clean up the old Perrin fmic, it was looking pretty weathered.

    Disassembled all four coil connectors and low and behold, 2 pins with failed crimps! The wire was snug but if you lightly tugged while holding the pin it would move slightly. Heat and vibrations would definitely cause the connection to break. Luckily I had some spares left over to replace them...
