    Backz againz. Went down and visited Philip to grab some shorter hardware that'll end up coming in handy on the downpipe instead of the manifold but if it works it works. Had to trim off a little bit of the wastegate bracket but everything looks solid. A bracket for the transmission also needs...

    A little more progress. While talking to a friend I noticed that the turbo was not clocked as I previously thought. So I clocked it the other night and now the wastegate doesn't fit at all. I'm heading down to 323's in a few weeks and I'm going to see if I can get stock wastegate to fit and...

    I'm loving air so far! 20gal tank made cutting kinda annoying, but expected with it constantly using air. I'm going to get some impacts and stuff in the next while (as I need them honestly) but so far loving them! As for the Cleaveland V8 I might have to look into them! my dad has a Galaxie in...

    Turbo Replacement

    Actually not on the car yet. Car has been down about 2 months while I juggle life lol I'm heading down to @323's in a few weeks in order to use his spare engine for fitment and to pick up some parts. No real supporting mods, my turbo and manifold were done. (blown oil seals and manifold was...

    Turbo Replacement

    CX Racing 2860 Dual Ball Bearing is what I've gone with. Seems to be the easiest and a Garrett clone. I had to clock it and I'm running into Wastegate Fitment issues but nothing crazy so far

    Slowly but surely making progress. Most LEDs are installed but I broke the side marker trying to get it out so trip to pick a part is in order. Also realized a 4.5in angle grinder wouldn't be the best idea to cut the ac bracket so I got an air compressor and 3in angle grinder. I wanted the...

Got off at 6 and stayed out in the garage until 1 lol Finally installed the filled motor mounts Philip gave me years ago Got the bracket that holds the stock downpipe Got the exhaust studs installed. It honestly took me about 2 hours to just clean...

    So far I've gotten the old turbo out and the full exhaust. I decided to also start working on the motorcycle at the same time and have been busy after work so nothing really has been done. I'm kinda concerned cause the coolant is still very rust-brown after 3 flushes and at one point I was...

    Stuff finally started coming in and its an amazing feeling! So far turbo has come in, and looks good. I got the manifold and downpipe which I sent out to signature to get some o2 bungs welded in and ceramic coated. The CX racing came in with a 13 psi wastegate but I wish, but don't wanna boom my...

    Fortunately, it does look like its mostly surface damage. I'm going to look at it later or wait til i get to VA Beach again and run by BMW and get someone to look at it. Just the principle sucks

    The problem is there's no other replacement manifolds. Ebay is a no go, and a stock one is a bandaid... I've heard about the pope install, but ima pray it goes smoothly

    Well unfortunately I came out one day to find out the MSP5 got hit and ran. The damage isn't bad, and it's on the bumper that already needs to be replaced, so that doesn't bother me. But the lip is damaged and the person didn't leave a note. I'm sure ith happened in the apartment complex but oh...
