Keefs; the pan is off and I'm getting the appropriate tap and fitting... had my back not seized up on me work yesterday I'd be over there working instead of following doctor's orders!!!

Quarterly-thread-update:

found out a month ago that the AN fittings I bought will only be proper if installed in the lower oil pan. It didn't look high enough in the assembly to allow for proper draining no matter what grade I park on (Roush calls for a spot centered in the metal webbing of the windage tray/"upper oil pan"), so it was back to the drawing board.

A racer buddy I met in the 2nd dealership I worked at told me he may have the pieces I needed. OH: and thanks to him I figured out that the tap I brought that day wouldn't have worked anyhow... so he dug through the parts he took off his pro street notchback (when he upgraded to a 90mm turbo). I'm meeting him and fellow FF'er MALIBOOYA tomorrow and Saturday to A) knock out his SVT mirror install and CASEY's old 3" catback and flex (his blew out a split up the length)... then route my vac and electrical for the ROUSH install.

If all goes well (it won't; I'm a slow bastard) I should have this bad biddy on a AAA flatbed and up to McNew's in Dillsburg for tuning by New Years!

As long as I'm boosted and running-well by Focus Rising, all that minutia can kiss my a*s!!!

So it looks like I'll have some competition at FR '16 hmmm... I'm hoping to have my tuning done by then as well. I'm being optimistic about it and registering it.

Back at "project: slow"...

I'm teaching myself the principles of turbo on this, so admittedly I'm dragging ass. The Roush kit I picked up (used) was missing a couple pieces and I'm finding them only when I reach the steps that call for them. This time: EGR braided hose.

It's hurry-up-and-wait with this thing. At least I haven't blown it up yet!











Thanks, hacks! Now I'm searching for pigtails or doing wire repairs. Ugh! This is why I decided to do this, though.




the newest missing piece!





Alright Joe... you better be ready for the Real Street Shootout though, buddy. We gon race if yer wanting a competition! There's no effn way I win a thing this year show-wise.

sailor and Focus On Me like this.

If I've got her squared away and running right by then, a race there shall be. She's not the most aesthetically pleasing beast though so hopes aren't high show-wise for me either lol.
