Have you replaced a clutch yet? There is a bolt that goes to the starter motor from the transmission side.. It also goes to a ground and a bracket.. That bitch... 2 ing hours to get that thing on.. cuz its in a place where you cant really reach it.


The pretty stuff is on and bolted tight. It wiggles a bit though, so i want to get some sort of bracket to really make that thing solid tight.

To do list is still scary long though:

Turbo Oil Line In
- remove/cut ignition coil bracket
- Get Fitting & plumbers tape

- Stock doesn't fit?

-install em

- Get old bolts out
- Replace bolts & Nuts
- Get cat and flexpipe back up and bolted on
- replacement gaskets?

Boost Controller
- Install boost controller unit (where to install?)
- Run cables to cabin
- hook up electronic controller in cabin

Boost Gauge

-run cable to cabin
-hook up power to gauge for lighting

Wideband Gauge

-Run cables to cabin
-hook up power to gauge harness

Catch Can

- find a place where it fits.

Final Parts

-Install axles and hubs
-Install suspension
-Firewire cable for datalog to SCT
-Gauge Pod

Then its tune time!
