The impetus for this effort was the oil leak and, with no car shows, something to do during the quarantine. I tried several fixes over the past two years. I'm not 100% on the source. While I could snug many of the bolts, I could not replace the pan gasket with the engine in the chassis. So we cleaned up the mess again, replaced the pan gasket, oil-pump o-rings and oil separator drain hose.

The turbo upgrade was secondary, but I'm excited about the promise of more power. The oil supply and drain lines will be from Yoshi. Maybe the leak was there. Going with the ATP waste gate and 3" down should be cool.

Sold a bunch of parts to pay as I go. I think I'm in for about $1,000. The clutch and trans are a concern. It's just nice to have something fun to do.

Early on I did have to fiddle with the drain at the turbo. Getting the surfaces parallel. I figure with the different exhaust manifold, some flexible lines would be easier to get leak-free.





Anxious to see how the different turbo effects the power band. Turbo's are a mystery to me. My best guess it that this will have more of an "on / off" character. No boost, no boost, bang! Dunno.

Cool town from what I have seen. Though this is usually a quick turn around visit.

Its alright, I grew up there. Its pretty similar to Vancouver. Lots of sprawl, lots of strip malls, little brother complex (Spokane vs Seattle, Vancouver vs Portland)

Lots of good breweries and downtown has cleaned up a lot. And you can still buy a house

No time to play. Ordered some DO88 for the bigger turbo inlet. WG bracket from ATP arrived. Looks nice.

Now that I have the firmer springs, I am thinking about going from the 22mm to a 19mm rear sway.

After that it's just the exhaust work. I think.

My car is going to be soo fast...
