Thanks Mark. I ran a hose from the pcv ( after delete), one from the valve cover, and I ran a hose from that too( evap ) down to the the bottom of the car. Zip tied it to the heater hose by the fire wall so it wouldn't hit the manifold or the turbo. Will I did my 5 min idle catalog earlier, I double checked everything to make sure I had no leaks or loose flanges and bolts. Before that I had a little scare with the injectors, one started shooting everywhere. O ring to the fuel rail wasn't setting right so replaced it and good to go. Idle was extremely rich but that will all get sorted out in the next tune. I'm just ready to get this thing on the road! Gonna be some blue flashes around jacksonville. :D

Well it has been a long three days. It always seems like no mater how much you have prepared and double checked, something always comes up. I'm in the final stretch just getting the tuning right. Gonna get up early and check over everything on the car. No oil leaks anywhere. That was one of my biggest concerns going in. All the lines to the turbo are good and seem to be flowing good. Gonna check every clamp tomorrow and get some pics underneath the car so everyone can see it. No judging with my throw together piping. LOL Had to throw in a blue piece from the intake I chopped up to build the coldside to finish the hotside. No big deal its under the car and it works. Once I get everything going good, I'll get all the pipes welded. definitely need to wrap the manifold and downpipe. That is first on the to do list. Also gonna get some sheet metal and build a heat shield for the alternator. But looking forward to working with Tom tomorrow to get the tune right. I'll get some sound clips loaded up this week hopefully.

Good day of tuning today. Yesterday ran into some problems with the files. Kind of had to start over today. But got a good cruise in felt real smooth so definitely making good progress. I'm driving just not doing boost until everything is set. Keeping the rpm's down for now until told otherwise. As tempting as it is it is not worth the trouble if something breaks. Should be boosting tomorrow, I hope.
