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.




Update:

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

Dipstick
- Stock doesn't fit?

Injectors
-install em

Exhaust
- 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
-Wheels
-Firewire cable for datalog to SCT
-Battery
-Gauge Pod
-Bumper/headlights/grille

Then its tune time!

Got some more work done today.. made the list significantly smaller..

-Wideband is installed, cable has been run, but I still need to hook up to power for gauge.
-New Dipstick installed
-Exhaust is up and in
-Battery is back on.
-Waiting on fitting to finish the oil-line install


I need to research more about hooking up the boost controller. Im not quite sure how it all goes together yet, so ive been watching youtube videos left and right. I still need to install the wastegate.

Engine bay is done.. finally. Im going to go over it tomorrow for a final check.


All that is left is the boost controller unit. I need to wire it to some power, and find a decent place to mount it where it wont get in the way and is easy to access.
