Here's a very bad compilation of ****ery in the last two years of my box of bolts. Bad sound quality, and various potato cameras. My first attempt to edit videos. I need more practice. But here it is. If you enjoy fire, water, and boost shenanigans , then enjoy. https://youtu.be/LueS7sQmH6Q?t=7

Took some pictures in downtown houston. The Starter died in parking lot (8 years old), had to push start to get home , Yay manual transmission. Had to pull transmission bolts off and slide trans back a few inches to get to top starter bolt with a wrench , boo standard trans t56 swap!! The top bolt ended up being seized badly. I further rounded the bolt off and had to brake the aluminum starter where the bolt threads in , in order to get it off. What a fiasco. Added a new bov, data logs showed improvement in response and additional boost quicker , with gear changes. I also changed boost controller, changed boost controller plumbing, plumbed alcohol jets into intake manifold directly. Rebuilding turbo next week. Somehow developed a chip on the impeller cold side, when i bought the hx52 used it looked like it was pulled off a semi that caught fire. New cold side wheel was 30 bux, rebuild kit was 30 bux, and shaft and exhaust wheel was 138 bux. Each wheel is individually balanced, so i will throw it together and send it. Shes running like a champ. Almost 17k miles on it now since I rebuilt the engine and upgraded it . Been driving the stink out of it. I cant imagine just driving one at the track and not daily driving it. Boost is at 25psi now , it pulls to 130mph quicker, than most of my passengers would like it to. Suspension is really soft in the back now so it hooks really well. I think my springs are probably worn out shrug. Anyway , heres some pics of the turd. Some of you will especially appreciate the first one.
