Default Time to port

Well a few weeks back I bought an */C and TB off a wrecked car in the For Sale & Trade Section. The */C arrived at my door about 1 week ago (The packing was lacking but everything survived) and I finally got around to breaking it down today.


A result of the poor packaging


Just a little on the dirty side


Also a little dirty; Iíve since removed the rest of the gasket on there but havenít done anything else yet.




Look at the dent on the pulley


Not the cleanest oil coming out but it sure has smelled worse in the past.






This coupler is toast






Looks pretty scored but Iím not sure if this is still good enough to use. Grooves can barely be felt by dragging your nail across. I think ití* just the contrast of colors make it appear worse then Iím thinking it is.














My camera made the grease appear to be a shade of blue.





My plan with this M90 is to have Intense port the inlet and Outlet for me. A little pricey but I want to get the most out of this P&P as I can. Iím awaiting a response back from Rogue as I sent him a pm on the 22nd but I expect to get one back once the work week begins.

07 is starting to look like a good year for my car
