Looking good. Your installer is doing a great job. You'll be very happy he's using v-band clamps for the exhaust when you go to work on it later and it lines back up perfectly every time. I did all my exhaust connections with v-band clamps.

The piping on top at the MAF is pushed together to tightly , the main pipe needs to be closer to the fender and the pipe needs to be pulled out of the coupler on both sides

The v-band is good but changing the downpipe from 2.5 to 3 inch wont help spooling or HP/TQ gains and it to close to the Raid , it will melt the shroud , it will need to be wrapped

yep its waaay to close to the fans, Im going to wrap them asap.

we assembled everything back today, and I moved the o2 sensor out of the dumptube way... was a bitch to make a new hole and bung since apparently Im retarded and lost the one I had.

good shit we had a lathe at hand and a SS bar near, we made a new bung from scratch and problem solved.

the bad... I scratched my bumped badly while assembling, the battery seems to be useless now because after a month being disconnected it just enough juice to turn the engine on once.

sounded great for a bit and ran rich as hell (base turbo tune ofc...) then I noticed livelink had crashed on my laptop so I turned the car off and rebooted the laptop, just to find out I wasnt able to turn it on again due the battery.

after getting the voltage on my battery to 9v trying to fire it up again... we noticed the engine was flooded with gas and well.. it was late so we called it a day, we hooked up the battery to the charger and gonna try again tomorrow...


pic related! (nvm the mexican plate)

Your piping is stuck way to far into the hoses going to the MAF tube , that pipe should be very close to the washer fill cap and not the batt , these need to be corrected or it will cause issues with the fueling

Man knows his shit. Him and I had to make the same changes. Car will drive awful for cruising because the MAF will read dirty air.

well updating after 6 months of being away lol.


Bad news, the engine blew :/ , seems like I was having issues with the wideband o2 sensor and was giving wrong readings, which didnt let Tom tune properly the car, and I kept using it like that lol (wasnt racing it thou... atleast not much), then suddendly one week ago the car started to felt weird, and a buddy told me there was a lot of smoke coming out of the bottom of the car, I didnt heard anything weird from the engine thou.

I got home, and saw a shitload of smoke coming out of the PCV vent hose... bad idle (revs going up and down a lot) and AFR was all over the place while idling (from 13 to 19).

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSp57e3f7LM

I guess the rings were bad in the first place since the oil blow by is excessive...

On the bright side, I will be building the bottom end to get more power now lol, and finish the tune ofc, this was my plan from the begining but I didnt want it to be like this heh, anyway... Ill be updating soon™ with pics of the damage on the engine parts (Im guessing broken ringlands).


This is the last pic I took before it went to shit:

update!

we took the engine apart, as tom said, we found the oil return holes under the cams blocked by metal shavings, my mechanic told me that probably had an issue with the engine and they milled the head and didnt clean it correctly before assembly, because the shavings were really big and thick, the kind you get after shaving a head lol.

I also found out that the car had a previous timing belt snapping incident, all 4 pistons have valve marks on the exhaust side, like if they were hit.

Then the vct solenoid was filled with fine metal flaking, the oil pump is probably screwed aswell, I just tossed it away.

Crank and rod bearings were really scratched, apparently from the lack of lubrication.

And the third piston broke on the ringlands, it scratched just a bit of the cylinder wall.

Ill have to turn the crank .010" to remove the scratchs on it, and hone the walls also by .010" .

Forged stuff and the needed supporting stuff is really expensive... not to mention Im going to have to upgrade my clutch to be able to hold with the added power, but this was my plan in the long run, so it just came faster than the anticipated heh.

I post more pics in the next days.

You need to remove the break off factory plugs in the ends of the oil galley and clean that head out good then tap the holes and use plugs
