Hopefully these will last more than a year. These are the new version with flex joints. So we will see. Not gonna wrap em. RallyX killed the other ones that were wrapped due to mud sticking to em. Plus will be easier to clean u wrapped if need be.

Tune update: my front o2 sensor had gone bad( hence why it was dumping fuel out the back). With the new o2 sensor in, the car ran better but still seems like something is wrong. The data logs are saying to add more fuel but my wideband is reading 10.0. Anyone got any ideas? The only thing I can think of, is the bung that came already welded in my down pipe, is welded at an angle with a pin size hole going into the pipe. I'm wondering if that's just filling up with a rich a/f and staying in there??

I'd definitely pull the down pipe and open that hole. Where is the o2 in relation to the turbo, like how far down stream? I've "heard" that the optimal position is 16-20" from the back of the turbo.

Is it trying to throw fuel in closed or open loop? Mine was a fueling issue (had my lines backwards), but it was basically just a lack of fuel. Does Ron think that could be it? Maybe a bad pump, or fuel rails are choking the flow?

It's prob right around 20". I'm going to drill it bigger when I get home tonight and see if theres any diff. It's hard for me to tell when it's throwing fuel only because I'm trying to trust my wideband. I'm waiting to hear back from Ron and see what he thinks. His last email said " that's really weird". (my thoughts.... Great.....)

haha, awesome

I'd definitely take care of that hole first and see if that clears it up. Is it a tall bung, like it may be keeping the sensor out of the stream? The bung in my kit is only about 1/2" tall, so it's all up in that stream.

Test your wideband too. Brake cleaner on a rag with induce a rich condition and no fluid should run lean.

If for some reason it runs full rich then full lean with the rag soaked in brake cleaner its bad.

It's got to be the bung. My sensor does not even go into the pipe. Fricken Canadians.

If you have an angle grinder just buzz it down so that the bung is only slightly longer than the threads. I bet that takes care of the issue, but I also wonder why they had it set up with a small hole/tall bung to begin with.. Seems odd, because I'm sure this isn't the first kit they've made, lol.

Edit: actually, you can cut those threads as low as you want. I wad thinking the body would bottom out before it should, but you want the body to bottom out. However tall the o2 threads are, I'd take 2 threads out of that for the bung. That'll ensure the sensor is as deep as it can be.

For those of you interested. I received some good comments on my OBP hawkeye on how nice the paint was. I detailed cars for a few years and I'm willing to detail the exterior of your car on my off days. Im not a body shop but I can really clean up some paint. I'll detail the exterior for $125. This includes clay barring the paint to remove the contaminants. Buffing out minor scratches. Polishing out swirls. Sealing and waxing the paint. I will need the car for approximately 6hrs. Pm me if interested and I can get you my number

Yup it was the fricken Canadians, I changed my o2 and wideband around and the wideband is reading 15-20. Right where Ron said it should be

Aron: That's great man! I'm glad that just needed to be sorted out. Hopefully no major knock issues happened in the meantime? For what you paid, I'm kinda disappointed for you with the kit. I would have expected a better fitting, "turn key" system, not something you have to dink with.

Now to finally start tuning for POWAH!

Do you have a leakdown tester and access to a compressor?

Warm engine
Remove all spark plugs
Remove oil fill cap
TDC on selected cylinder
Some testers have range identified
Connect to compressed air
Set tester
Install hose to selected cylinder
Install to gauge, read pressure drop

Tips
I use a straight rod to determine if cylinder is on TDC through spark plug hole.
Socket and ratchet on crank bolt to slowly turn engine over to obtain TDC on select cylinder.
With pressure applied listen for air bleed at air inlet to turbo, oil fill tube and exhaust pipe.
Note readings and reinstall all parts.
Post results on forum so we can talk about your engine.
