Yes on the SCT it's reading the AEM A/F gauge is ok but not displaying the A/F like it should.

So guys all done as of yesterday got to take it out and man is it fun, no idea what kind of power I'm making but running 10psi and sounds and feels awesome. Next step is full 3" exhuast, 67mm TB, Comp turbo, and new BOV then turn it up to hopefully 25psi. If anyone has anything I listed used please pm me!! I'll get some pics in a bit of it all finished.

bent the dipstick tube to fit

had to use a softball bat to indent Tim's 3" downpipe to clear passenger CV shaft

Turbo Turtles awesome 3" Downpipe welded up goes the flex pipe so no cat, he had to send it in two pieces but some good guess work right here, all I had to do was cut some off and get it welded in the middle

used a 90 elbow -3 fitting and got two longer bolt for coil pack bracket it bolt back up its sturdy and wont be going anywhere

used a 2' -3 AN line has a little slack in it but should be fine


that's pretty much it besides tuning, all in all the project was easy had I had everything at the ready I could have done it in a day like I thought but there were small things I had forgotten which prolonged the build.

Run that oil feed line down under the thermostat housing and to the front coming in from the raid so the line / oil isnt heated more by the turbo manifold

Hey Tom this is what it looks like and has since it's been running

Tom think we could turn it up to 15psi? It's a SPA can't remember what you said would be most for it I think you said 18psi but couldn't rember, I understand its a guess to what's safe and not a legit quote. I've only got 3 weeks of driving left.
Thanks zxthrizzle!

dud eyoull be fine up to a lot of psi on a spa. its cast iron. but the runners aren't ideal for high flow efficiency psi numbers. im running 17 right now and works like a champ
