    Fresh Sweet Donuts Everywhere! (work log)

    I needs self healing turbo seals lol. I noticed the clamp for that pipe wasn't tight enough anyway but I guess for a good reason. Else I would've never knew. I'll drive the car around for a few weeks and see if the oil problem worsens. If it does then I'll pull it for a rebuild I suppose since I...

    Fresh Sweet Donuts Everywhere! (work log)

    That's cause you love me. Well, on my way to work today, the hot pipe coming directly off the turbo outlet popped off, which is usually expected when I remove and reinstall piping. However, I found oil in the coupler so I'm assuming the turbo seals are starting to go bad? My stock turbo unit...

    Fresh Sweet Donuts Everywhere! (work log)

    The car is back together and running, now with more starch. Here's a short recap of the turbo & mani swap adventure leading up to yesterday. Removing the old turbo & manifold was easy as pie as I've done it before. Assembling the new turbo, manifold, and s-pipe, I ran into a snag with the ARP...

    Fresh Sweet Donuts Everywhere! (work log)

    Thanks! And yeah steal all you want! It's such a good setup. Based on some searching, I found that you just have to heat up and bend the 90 degree part of the oil feed to 45 degrees and it'll fit on a gt28 and I was able to do so with success. My slim fan has arrived too so I'll be tackling...

    The DD MS3

    On Sunday, replaced the Vapor Canister Purge Valve/Solenoid in efforts to fix the P2188 code I encountered but I forgot to clear the code until Monday so I only have about 8 miles into it. Time will tell if the issue is fixed. Update: CEL code for P2188 has returned during my commute home...

    Fresh Sweet Donuts Everywhere! (work log)

    I got the turbo assembly on the car but I've ran into two other issues. The stock oil feed has a 90 degree bend near the end that goes into the turbo. It fits fine on the stock turbo but not on the 2860. I'm no longer able to run my stock radiator fan (driver side) because it won't allow the...

    Fresh Sweet Donuts Everywhere! (work log)

    In the middle of installing an upgraded steedspeed turbo mani and a used 2860 i picked up. Currently just waiting on replacement studs as the ones I picked up were a little too short for me to comfortably use them. I purchased copper plated locking nuts (recommended by many online) but the...

    The DD MS3

    Don't have any pictures to share on this update but poking around in the engine bay, I noticed the serpentine belt looks pretty worn so that'll have to be taken care of soon. Will order the GATES 90K38408E kit soon and get it taken care of.

    Water in passenger footwell - where's the leak?

    trunk could be the seams (more than likely if you've been in a rear end fender bender), trunk seals, or tail lights. my tail lights and trunk seal were letting in water. i removed the tail lights and added a rubber washer before putting the nuts back on and it fixed it for me. the trunk seal was...

    [DEFUNCT] The College-Budget P5

    If there’s no frame damage and you have a place to store it for a few years, but it back. You’ll have a car ready to turn into a dedicated track vehicle for cheap.
