Same thing you said last time, I must be doing something different on that one. I re-torqued all four this morning so hopefully I got that one right. Thanks Shifted!

Gary, the car felt like it was making less than 5psi on just the gate, so I'm running my MBC on it. Estimated 13psi at the max if I had to guess.

Gotcha. Strange that it takes some time to build boost. Any details on what the spring rates are on the gate, or application it was spec'd for? Almost sounds like it's a 15g stock wastegate that has a weak spring to keep the gate closed. Just for test purposes, get a secondary return spring between the bracket and the arm, see if your boost is more stable. Definitely need a legit boost gauge on there first though...

I agree. Calibrated boost gauge is on the to-do list. Any thoughts on the A-pillar gauge pods? Looks like a nice piece, but not sure about blind spots..

Between jobs so I had a few days to work on the car. Did head gasket, upper water pump seal, timing belt and tensioner, ball joints, outer tie rods, strut inserts (thanks swedishiron.com!), and all SuperPro poly in the front (thanks Gary!). Car feels great. The family was rolling deep with our Volvos today so I snapped a few pictures.

Good deal man! While you were doing the front did you install the 960 lower braces? If not, they are quick later, woulda been prime time though.

Gotta get to the track this year, see how it does. See if we can get something coordinated, roll out there in force! Glad it's coming along though, always a good feeling. Finally getting mine a touch more sorted as well.

Thanks Gary. Your wagon is a good role model for what I'd like my engine/trans to look like in the near future.

I stumbled across Modesto's Cars and Coffee/Euro Sunday when I was out getting a Monster this morning

It was fun! I plan on attending in the future

So I hadn't checked cruise control since replacing the diaphragm, but it works great!

That diaphragm is so goofy and unprotected, the whole setup is definitely an afterthought. It's cool to use sometimes though

Having caster problems since I replaced all the bushings. Suggestions? The car has seen some heavy potholes in it's life so Dad and I are going to inspect/measure things. I'm being really stubborn and want to DD this car comfortably again like when I first got it for $1200 so I'm going to fix as much and I can handle and make it happen. My ex-wife hates this car and my Daughter loves it so that's just a bonus

940 IC , A/C, and E-fan are the near future plans, along with the heater core (already bought one).

Picture because threads need them thanks to Photo-suckit:



Wheel restoration coming eventually

There's a few different lengths on the radius rods, make sure you've got the right ones. That's really about all there is for caster on these, unless the strut mounts are in the wrong way. You could also throw in the camber plates from Ben, really digging mine big time.

Agreed on that diaphragm!

Hey, wanna run next week or the week after? dunno what your schedule is, bit of a drive up here, wanna get a drag night going, get some Best coast points...

School starts Monday. Let's see what I'm in for and I'll let you know. I'd like to participate this year, it sounds fun! The 740 is definitely quicker than my 242 on K-jet right now

Car keeps boiling out of the overflow bottle. Time for 940 radiator. Honestly I need to plop a low-mile block into it soon so I'm keeping an eye out at the yards

Hmm, boiling out? Haven't had that issue. Any chance you've got a HG going south or a blocked radiator/weak fan clutch/t-stat?

Mine will boil a little out if I fill to the max when cold, but once it pushes out what it needs for expansion, it stops at that point, usually leaving it a little above the min line when cold.

Maybe it was just the boil-out you're talking about because I just did a HG and over-filled it a little. I'll clean it up and keep an eye on it, but I still I have my heart set on an engine in the next year
