Turbo Time... (3/24 update)

3/24
Turbo Time....

Well after waiting patiently and gathering a heap of parts it is finally time to get the install going. I will be dropping my car off Monday night to do the following:
-Turbo Install (Frankenturbo F21Bi)
-Clutch Install (Spec Stage3+ w/ SMF)
-Rear Main Seal
-Oil Cooler Gasket
-Accessory Belt and Tensioner
-034 Engine and Trans Mounts

Its going to be a fun summer!









3/17
My Winter Projects

After trying the Carly tool and being unsatisfied I decided to learn how to code. I finally got a new laptop and was ready to make it happen. I followed some excellent threads on this forum and after setting up my environment (downloading and installing programs, linking them together, all in the instructions) it was actually quite simple. This thread was the building blocks of my learning process http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1222277

After getting my laptop setup, I hooked up the batter charger and off to the races. I referred to this youtube video for the actual coding process



Some things that I coded!
-AHL Disable (what prompted this whole thing) since my modules failed
-Bulb Check and Voltage Monitors turned off (All) since I have all LEDs for everything.
-Corner Delete Mod
-Seatbelt Chime disable
-Window/Sunroof close via key fob
-Fogs w/ high beams
-Cluster Backlight always on







Next I decided to install some parts I got for Christmas

The tuner motorsports pedals look and feel great and the zhp shift knob, well that just speaks for itself.









Next I needed to do some MORE suspension work...Like I haven't done enough in the past 6 months. New powerflex rear upper shock mounts, which are a fantastic improvement. My oem ones, even though new when I put the coilovers in, got shredded and the washer was hitting the metal lip on the trunk side making a clicking sound

Needless to say, the powerflex mounts solved the problem and the rear end feels and sounds much better.



Next was to do my drivers side front thrust arm as the ball joint boot ripped. Put a new OEM one in and off to the alignment shop!







Unfortunately during the removal process I broke my torx bit, so off to SEARS I went. Warrantied out the torx bits and couldn't help myself so I bought some much needed gear wrenches and some additional sockets I also got a sweet ceramic space heater so my garage was a nice temp for working







As you can see from my last update, I replaced my solenoids and all vaccum lines except for the solenoid to turbo. Well that fixed my no boost issue but then I started to get a 30FE overboost code

After doing some research people say the lines from solenoids to turbos can get cracked and the minute changes in pressure due to those cracks can cause the 30FE code. So I went back in there and replaced the solenoid to turbo lines with the silicone lines.

I also noticed a small boost leak AGAIN (I could feel it and hear it) so I figured it was good time to pressure test my intake system and vacuum lines again to make sure everything was holding up. After making some sweet and much more effective tools (2nd time around...) the testing went great!



Turns out my charge pipe o-ring was bad and the fitment on the ECS charge pipe to throttle body isnt the greatest. I got a new o-ring and use a little red rtv and it sealed up perfectly!

I still get a 30FE overboost code every now and again but I'm gonna table that for now so I don't go crazy.

NEXT UP!

Clutch and Turbos.

Spec Stage 3+ w/ SMF
034 Engine Mounts and Trans Mounts
New Oil Feed and Return Lines
Gaskets and Hardware for days
Accessory Belt and Tensioner Kit
Turbos.....Stay Tuned







I also picked up a Turner Motorsports Strut Bar. Since I am going with the blue/black/polished theme in my engine bay I am thinking of getting the three strut bars (triangle) powder coated in blue to match the TiAl. I will keep the hardware and bracket polished I think.





Oh and I will get to this eventually...




P.S. Imageshack.us is wayyyy better than photobucket (<-- they got some serious tech issues right now). I think I may have to pay for imageshack though

11/8

So after I got my suspension all dialed in I stopped modding it and just enjoyed it for a while. Eventually my solenoids stopped working so my boost went out and I parked my car.

I did some vacuum testing (how i found out my solenoids were bad), did some boost pressure testing (found a large leak at my charge pipe due to no o-ring at throttle body ) and figured out what I needed to do to get it back on the road.

Here is my friend and I replacing the solenoids and changing out all the vac lines to silicone.








All Done


Before this I finally pulled the trigger on a 7" VRSF Intercooler and did the install with my friend. Did some trimming and installed it with the optional upper charge pipes VRSF sells. Also removed my front bumper grille and trimmed the bottom tabs off for aesthetics















Now that that is done, it was time to make some serious progress on my headlights. My first dremel broke so I went out and bought the real thing! Dremel 4000 is awesome for anyone looking to buy one. Soon after, black and decker sent me a replacement which I will keep as a backup.















The last few that are still taped off, I will be doing some gold accents to match my wheels. Should turn out nice!



My makeshift paintbooth has evolved...










A little sneak peak for next season... 1st piece of my body upgrade...




More to come....

5/26

Almost done dialing in my suspension....end links were too short so my h&r sway bar was hitting my subframe added adjustable turner links, raised it up a little bit and now its good!







Headlight project is finally commencing! Used a heat gun on the first headlight (sucked), tried the dremel method on the second one and wayyyy easier. Getting there....









Car audio soon to come... Currently have a single 12" JL W3v3 but time to get the head unit and and give my speakers some real power and adjust ability



New revision on JB4 had my throttle acting weird so did a back end PUMP flash. Back in order and hitting some respectable boost levels at 17lbs






5/13 First car show of the year, Superfly Akron! A couple shots from my photographer friend don xu

Go to pg2 for a bunch of shots of the show and my crew's cars







5/5/16 Well decided to ditch the Megan coilovers as I was having some issues and went with Bilstein PSS B14 Coilovers and the quality is second to none (coming from KWs on my last car).

I wound it down all the way leaving one thread on each corner. Gonna put a small spacer in the rear and it should sit perfect

Will do some before and afters once I detail my car this weekend.










4/11/16 This may peak a little more interest Summer wheel mode engaged.
Avant Garde M510 (Bespoke 3 - Liquid Polished Bronze)
19x9.5 ET30 Square Set
Vredstein Ultrac Sessanta 235/35R19





Winter to Summer mode



Sorry the car is all washed out, you cant see the wheels that well with reg exposure





Also installed my 2-step, dp fix and JB4 bluetooth module. I bought the Speed Limit Defeat but cant figure out the install, the instructions are super vague.


4/3/16 Cowl delete done (waiting on conversion, seeing how I like this first) and new intake filters








3/26/16 Still waiting on parts for the cowl conversion so next up, 100k maintenance and vrsf downpipes!

Did manual trans fluid, diff fluid and coolant. The downpipes sound amazing with my muffler delete...





First step, installed my ECS CP w/ Tial BOV...

2 step, dp fix and jb4 Bluetooth connect installed.

Messing with the 2 step, decided on 3000 rpm as a target for launching

Thanks guys

I bought the CP out of this kit and got the HKS to Tial adapter. They no longer sell the CP separately though I must say I really like the bov placement, plus it comes with 2 meth bungs
