    Arrow New Owner 2003 Spicy Orange Protege! Need some motor help!

    Hey guys I have just recently picked up this 2003 Spicy Orange Protege and have been loving the car since I received it last week! I have been going over the engine and wanted to see if everything is connected right, it looks like a hack job by the previous owner and I want to make sure currently that it is running right. The car came with a box of stuff with one of the parts being a turbo smart blow off valve that I*m guessing was connected where the BPV currently is. Car is sitting at 118,xxx and is super clean!

    Please post your comments and advice of what I should do to clean this baby up! Keep in my mind I haven*t touched any of this setup.





    Do all of these Vacuum lines look like they are going to the right places? The wastegate is running off the brake booster and the bpv is hooked up to a line running off the motor





    Here*s the car...




















    Thanks for looking!

    so looks like the previous owner may have either had some vacuum issues, or just had some extra length of fuel injection hose laying around. No problem there, just pointing it out.

    Ok thanks for pointing that out! The wastegate seems to open and close just fine, I wasn*t sure about the bpv.

    I got out that part that I*m guessing was on the car before, is this hard to tune? What are the benefits and does it mess with the idle of the car?
