Not much of an update. Missed 3 out of 3 attempts. I live in the woods and no one would take my package. Also, have a Camera around the house so I'm covered. So this whole weekend was wasted :/ I need to finish the install. Hopefully, FedEx can send it to a Local FedEx Location. This all happen due to I have to sign for the Package...

So stock internals, stock head gasket, meth, and higher boost I assume.
That sounds like fun! Can't wait to see it finished.

I did a Compression Test last night and they did well I also left the guage there for 5 mins with pressure to see does it leak. Leaking is little to none at all. Motor has about 84k.

Three things:
1. Pull the fuse 53 out and crank several times to bleed out the fuel.
2. Follow the ignition wire to DME box and disconnect two connectors to stop power supply to ignition coil.
3. Remove DISA.
4. Crank motor over 3 times.
5. Results

1. 185
2. 184
3. 185
4. 184
5. 185
6. 186

Well, Picked up AA package from FedEx location and was able to start the install of the S/C

Cut and Extended the P/S Lines.


The Picture in the Install is not Correct. For the S/C Belt Adj. Bracket.


Bracket with S/C Mounted up




Reinstalled my MaxBore TB with new O-Ring Gasket.




Reinstalled DipStick with Plug and New O-Ring.


Installed my New Manual Electric Puller Fan.


Installed the 45* Elbow with T-Bolts Clamps


Purge Valve Bracket Back on and etc.


That was all for today. Got lazy.

I spent like 15 mins on today. Was installing the Long Return Intercooler Pipe and saw that it is interfering with the Auto Tranny Cooler. So, I bend the line to clear it for now. I will have a Solution for it in the Future when I run more boost.
