Throwing around the idea of hood/fender exit for exhaust, dont mind loud, my jeep was a 5.2 with open exhaust....very loud, thoughts?

Martin L. 04-05-2020 04:48 AM

Loud is one thing, the broken garden tractor sound another.

Wilford Brimley 04-05-2020 01:27 PM

Good point

Wilford Brimley 04-06-2020 08:43 PM

Had to finish wiring up my cams today but got a little time in.



https://i.postimg.cc/vDF0qFRV/20200406-163511.jpg got some recycling

Wilford Brimley 04-07-2020 11:28 PM

Didnt get too far today, put together my new couch. Got the mani and turbo off though.


Wilford Brimley 04-07-2020 11:29 PM

Well the 13c sure is cute!

I'm currently clocking the turbo whilst sitting at my kitchen table drinking wine:lol:

Wilford Brimley 04-09-2020 08:51 PM

https://i.postimg.cc/tCTbMSyK/20200409-174950.jpg got it clocked now just need the feed and drain which should be here tomo

sbabbs 04-09-2020 09:00 PM

I'd swap to the bigger water pump pulley so you'd have less water pressure at higher racing rpm.

Wilford Brimley 04-11-2020 09:44 PM

Got my shower redcoated....that was fun:roll: but I did get the ac out and got the intercooler put in and cold side piping figured out. Have the turbo in place to try to figure out intake and hotside piping. Have an MBC and downpipe on the way. Also got the gauge pod in and screwing with wiring, weee!

Wilford Brimley 04-17-2020 10:24 PM

Anyone remember which size bolts hold these on? Also the 0g and 4g wiring is for my beats:)

Wilford Brimley 04-17-2020 10:27 PM

Also trying to figure out the an of this kinguawa(or whatever it is) feed is for the m14x1.5-?an adapter. The one on the turbo is -4an...no idea what the other side is


3" dp on the way...still, also got a nice mbc. It's making headway!

Wilford Brimley 05-03-2020 10:50 PM

https://i.postimg.cc/xdvKTz2f/20200503-175419.jpg got to play a little today. Got the turbo on, oil feed on, drain is done, oil pressure sender on, mbc on and mounted, oil cooler arm back on welded a vband onto 3" dp, and of course some paint

I like it. Automatic transmission? It will certainly crush some souls when done.

Wilford Brimley 05-04-2020 01:25 PM

Yeah its autotragic, gonna get the accum mod though. Looking for a turbo cam/gear now

ZVOLV 05-04-2020 01:43 PM

That poor old head gasket is gonna pop

Wilford Brimley 05-04-2020 08:58 PM

Yeah it's ok, easy fix as we all know

Wilford Brimley 05-04-2020 08:59 PM

Already ready to blow that hg;)


Wilford Brimley 05-04-2020 09:16 PM

I am considering getting an extra hg and blots for when it does happen. I fully expect it....ill have a wideband and what not but eh, it's an old gasket

Wilford Brimley 05-05-2020 11:11 PM

Ordered head gasket kit with bolts(just in case) and a gates timing belt and new tensioner since I plan to run a turbo cam

I have one on the car currently

77volvo245 05-06-2020 02:00 PM

The AMM needs to be 6-8 inches away from the inlet of the turbo..

I was going to mention this as well. You basically wanted where it would be in stock location or close by. It will get cooked being too close to turbo.

Cwazywazy 05-07-2020 04:42 PM

I used to have mine in that same spot. It was fine with a 15g, but I got some funky running/stalling issues after upgrading the turbo that were solved after switching to a stockish intake configuration.

I'll be doing the stockish intake with a nice hot air intake.

Waiting for my aem wideband and 02 bung so I can weld them in and fire this bitch

Wilford Brimley 05-17-2020 11:34 PM

So I tried starting it and the tbelt snapped(i knew it was close lol)so I put on my new tensioner and gates belt, started it again and it idles smooth for like 2 seconds then afr goes 17-20 and it sputters and idles reeeealll lumpy. I think the timing is right but could be wrong. Could the 3"amm on the stock fuel and computers cause it to go rich? Also wonder if there is a vac leak or bov isnt staying shut. Could be timing too I guess?

Wilford Brimley 05-18-2020 11:30 PM

Seemed like a combo of amm and bov. So it runs good idles a tiny bit meh at 14.4 but whatever Iguess, 21-22inhg, set her down to go for a drive and the tire goes flat from being old and ****ty:roll: :lol:

Mbeas96 05-19-2020 11:07 AM

Lh2.4 constantly tries to keep 14.7 at idle so 14.4 is just about perfect.

Wilford Brimley 05-19-2020 11:04 PM

Sweet. Now I gotta find the cheapest tires possible for the car since I want wider wheels and tires but too busy too figure that out right now

Wilford Brimley 05-24-2020 08:51 PM

Took it on its first drive today, about 30 miles. All gauges show good health but it randomly misses/goes rich for a fraction of a second, it's odd. Seem to stutter a bit at higher psi but other than that it's a blast:)

Wilford Brimley 05-25-2020 09:28 PM

Got about 100 miles on it...has an oil drip somewhere I gotta find. Got her some sideways action today since it rained. I reeeeallly need to retool the suspension. The big sway in the rear and nothing else modded feels fckin werid

Wilford Brimley 05-26-2020 09:29 PM


There's a monster truck in my driveway!

Wilford Brimley 06-27-2020 01:42 AM

Nut fell off my cheap chinese turbo and shredded the wheel:omg: new turbo has 4" intake lol moved some **** around yadda yadda. Painting **** like I always do


Wilford Brimley 06-27-2020 01:46 AM



Wilford Brimley 06-27-2020 08:38 PM

Waiting for some couplers, also welded some exhaust stuff together, will be back on the road tomo

LC4CARL 06-27-2020 10:18 PM

Grr. Sorry about your new turbo.

Wilford Brimley 06-27-2020 10:47 PM

Eh you get what you pay for

LC4CARL 06-29-2020 08:20 PM

How many times are we supposed to reuse head bolts? Or is there a length dimension we can check to see if they are ok?

Wilford Brimley 06-29-2020 09:14 PM

I think once in a pinch

Wilford Brimley 08-09-2020 05:48 PM


I d k wtf I'm doing
