Nice! Yeah for sure.

Motor is in! Now to drill out a trans mount bolt that conveniently broke in the frame rail...

Did you release the pressure in the slave before you removed it?

Just another little hurdle. (But... They all add up )

Not far now.

When's your dyno?

I didn't, pulled the trans last night and hopefully will have the car on the ground for break in by Sunday. Need to reroute the cx racing wastegate tube as it melted a hole in my subframe brace!

No idea on dyno. Need to get some miles on it and tune it for the race next weekend. Very tight on time so hauling oats whenever I can.

Pole Position would know exactly where to get the right one (diameter), but I've had this sitting in my cart for a while, too.

25.4 is the number to convert from MM to inches. I'm not sure the diameter of the radiator stock hoses, but this is what you're looking for...

Have some sort of fueling issue. Idles lean, goes even leaner under load, and have a misfire. Went through the wiring pin by pin, checked all the boost piping and manifold seals, changed the fuel pump, cleaned the filter, retimed the engine, checked fuel pressure, among many other things.

Had to miss the race weekend.

Sent out my injectors and maf out yesterday to make sure they aren't clogged or knocked out of calibration somehow.

Sorry to hear.

Hope it all gets sorted for you sooner rather than later.

Just Another M54 Turbo Build. By the People, for the People

Thanks

In the meantime, just mounted my fuel pressure regulator in the engine bay so it's easier to monitor (learned my lesson while trying to diagnose this issue) and converting the entire system to AN hose. Found an earls quick-disconnect to join the hose right onto the stock rail. Already pulled out all the stock stuff, hose should be in any day to finish it off.
