Default Finally got my car back!

And the first thing I did was tear it apart! Here'* the skinny.

My superchargers not using the intercooler to its full potential, but Trent knew how to fix that.


That'* not very nice..


Looking better! I didn't get pictures after he finished the touch up work and removed the corner notches, it was pretty though.


Meanwhile I took care of all the little things such as the EGR.


See Mike, this is how it'* supposed to look after you remove it.


Blocked this guy off, no picture of that blockoff.


The Petersen Autosports EGR blockoff.


Last week I noticed my bypass was sticking, thought it was a long shot but I hit it with some PB blaster penetrating oil. Now it slaps down hard and moves freely.


Only thing I'm waiting on is the trunk panels still, once those are done I'll ***** it up.

**Oh and this is post 1000 for me

Looking good. Did you make your own SC gaskets and match them to the opening?

I used rtv gasket maker, the high temp stuff. Forgot to mention I also swapped my wires out for some bosch wires with a lifetime warranty for 1/4 the price of zzp wires. Mine were fine, but after seeing trents issues with his I decided to swap them. We will see if zzp stands behind there product.. I also am trying some different spark plugs out, 103'* were to cold. Cars running great after this last round of tuning. My order of plugs came in Friday so I have 24 103'* and 24 104'*.

The 104s should be just fine. I just switched to 103s, but I have more boost then you.

That'* the plan. Don't forget to find a long enough wire to run from your battery to up front (10-8 gauge I'm thinking) if that'* the way you want to go. I would hate to power something like that sensor off the cars tiny wiring.

I'm going to beef up my alternator wire Saturday while they finish the panels.

I can do the wiring while you put in the bungs.

Should be good, I will have to look in my basement for some nice wire.
