Latest update on the car.

I Took this



And removed it to look like this



And then added one of these.



Car runs great but I think this Mod is going to hurt my MPG the most as it makes me drive it like an idiot just to get it to vent @ 15psi on each shift.

Shhhhh, I have been DAily driving it breaking in the clutch and making sure it is reliable. I am almost done fixing and replacing everything on it. M I still need to do front and rear bushing and I am technically done and it will be damn near all new.

Plus she complains about it rolling backwards on the small hill leaving the kids school where the BMW doesn't roll back. And she is incapable of learning anything new if I tell her she needs to be mean to drive. Ha

Maybe once I get the v8 into the 944 she can or might start driving this. Plus she likes how soft and smooth the BMW clutch and shifter are vs the clunky t5. So whatever. It might just be the family wagon.

Well I already have control arms here with new bushings installed (ipd kit with poly stay) and then solid torque rods here waiting to go in. I need to quit being cheap and buy the new stuff mounts and then just find time to swap.

I get like 2 maybe 3 days a month than I can really work on my projects. Family life bah.

I thought my car would die with a BOV!!!??? J/k. I didn't even know they had adapters like that, pretty slick. I guess the 2.0T Hyundais have opened up some more options for mitsubishi equipped cars. Now you got me looking for something.

Ditto....but the last time I got something like that (a Mopar SRT-4 part), the car just panicked and died. How does this one work? Recircs at all?

You, you just have to use shorter bolts. Also make sure whatever bov you use is closed at idle and cruise. Pretty normal stuff for a maf/amm car.

That yoshifab flywheel looks great, how much they go for? Car looks good, but I'm a sucker for Wagons. I wonder if they make a similar setup for a t56? Anyways great looking so far!

I am sure yoshifab can make anything for anything, I got it on the GB so much cheaper than the current price.

I am sure this Flywheel will work just fine you just need a clutch and PP for a t56.

Well if this isn't a sign of how odd I am, today I replaced a perfectly fine working Fuel pump. One of those replace now before it breaks. Plus the fuel level sending unit has had issues in the past. Installed a new AEM 320. Super quiet.





Also installed a new turbo blanket as the last one was super junk and fell apart




What I also did but did not get pictures of was installing a 967 ECU with an ostrich installed so I could fine tune LH just a little with the larger injectors along with finally fixed my old TTR gear and installed it @ +2deg for the cam timing.


Two weeks ago I finally installed the rebuild/old with new control arms with the poly bushings. at the same time I did the camber mod to get some stance on the front. Also happened to finally getting around to installing the front Konis I picked up so now this car has full set of Koni's.

Nice progress Mike! I may go that pump route when the time comes for the Walbro, or more boost as I'm about at the limits of the 255 when it's on straight E85.

What turbine blanket is that? Heard mixed reviews on a couple of them, for falling apart. Had VERY poor luck with the DEI Titanium wrap as well...fine while it's on, but if you touch it, powder.

Some updates from yesterday, Yes I know the exhaust is to small (TME Catback), it will be getting upgraded to 3->3.5" over the axle and out the back over time. I just need to get some tuning set and swap a few turbos with dynos to show gains between each. The worst part about swapping the subframe is prob dealing with the parking brake cable.

A few more updates from this last weekend, I have been planning for more upgrades over time and a larger turbo in the future so I figured I might as well get a bit more flow out of the system so I ditched the TME exhaust and built a 3" ->3.5" setup. So out of the muffler it flares to 3.5" to go up and over the axle and out the back. I will try to get another picture of the tip on the car. Yes I know the mismatch of colors, they are getting painted either black or silver soon.

Well I guess I will need an admin to change the thread title as this is no longer the wife's car, it was supposed to be but she complained to much about the T5 and it's wonderful shifter. So I just got her an 850 with a m65 swap and a few other goodies, so I guess I will get a new thread setup for that one soon.

Latest update, yoshifab catchcan added along with painted VC with breather fitting welded on
