This is just the beginning. You will forever chase gremlins with a custom setup.

Ain't that the truth.lol. It will all get figured out soon enough. Just a word of advice for those out there looking to build your own. Retrace everything you did to the car. Always check over everything after running the car. You still may have issues but at least you can rule a lot out that way. Making it easier to figure out what's going on. And most importantly listen to your tuner.

Hey Tom, just saying. Look at what happened when I updated software without talking to you first. You also bet it was a small leak in the IM. Sure enough, there it was. It pays to listen.lol

OK time for an update. We've made a lot of progress in the tuning. Getting really close to where it needs to be. Our schedules have a lot to do with it. Every time we make progress, I have to go to school. But we are really close.
Car is doing great. No loose clamps no big leaks. Do have a very tiny leak from the oil pan where I tapped it but literally just a couple drops. I'll take care of that tomorrow before it gets any worse. Wasn't even enough to where it left the pan onto the driveway so not too concerned about it.
Turbo seems to be doing good. No smoke or other issues from it. Haven't put it through too much abuse other than wot for logs but its doing great. As soon as I get some more insight on how it holds up and some numbers from the dyno, I'll do a thread on it. Great spool from the wot runs so its doing its job. Other than that, nothing else to report. Ready to let this thing loose.
