    @i12drivemyMP5, let’s face it, no one is really ever “done” with their car until they sell it [emoji23]

    Washed the car yesterday, and tried to get some OEM roof racks. Unfortunately, I didn't do my research and tried to take the racks off from the top. Three hours later, I had em off but in multiple pieces. Oh well. I still have the cross bars intact, but the rails I'm gonna have to scoop up somewhere else.

    In other news, I started work on my 626 valve cover for when I get the rest of my parts for the 1.8 coil mod. It's coming along pretty well so far! I need to sand off the faces of the lettering and get my buddy to cut out some sexy Japanese decals to put on the cam gear cover. More pics to come as I progress.

    yeah, got parts to add cabin air filter, NIB espelirs and some 22v for the front bumper/msp lip at very minimum......still enjoying the fresh set of wet okole seat covers and the gentex 341 autodim/compass/temp/homelink/maplight rear view mirror in amber and even have full meal deal stereo with rr view cam not in it yet. Not selling car but beyond those things there is a mountain of stuff I should shed....same for my truck.

    Finally have the Protege5 back on the road after 6 years sitting. A broken water pump causing overheating and blew the head gasket and the heater core inside the car. Did all the repairs myself. Replacing the timing belt and water pump turned out to be not too difficult. However the heater core required the entire dash to be removed for access. I am pleased to have it running as a daily driver.

    New here... replaced: front LCA, wheel hubs, sway bar links and brake pads. Apparently the wheel bearing I had temporarily driven on was bad enough to not be pressed out (spun on spindle).

    lots of variables come into play here but you'd prolly be best off running a stand alone or at the very least a piggyback. i would imagine it would be acceptable to use just to get the car running if you ran the turbo at a very low psi. how low exactly? i'm not sure. what i can tell you is the msp ecu and stock injectors run super rich for the stock gt2554r turbo. seems people's experience varied but could handle up to 14/15psi on the stock turbo and injectors. those that upgraded the turbo to a gt2860rs was successful running 5-10psi, 10 being more on the risky side. based on my research and not my personal experience, 10psi on the gt2860rs is where the stock injectors max out.

    I was all ready to give up entirely on my p5 when the alternator and clutch hydraulics started to go just recently, but I just could bring myself to do it! its at 247k and I gotta see it to at least 250k. New alternator to go in early next week when it arrives, then slave/master cylinders. Can't quit this thing, just keeps amazing me with all it has been through
