Yeah Silverdome is really busy. Really just a waste of time IMHO. Tooo many cars!

Ran MSU last three years in a row. Its really fun and a long course that uses 2 sections of the Commuter lot at Farm lane and Mt Hope on MSUs Campus. West Mi SCCA puts on 2 events there as well worth the money. They also do one at Lansing Community College thats fun too.

Hopefully this weather holds out.. If it does, I'll be pulling an engine and swapping clutches. Anyone else is welcome to swing by, we'll be in my driveway all day. I've got a grill, or just show up with beer, or bring a set of gloves and help wrench.

Yeah hopefully it does, we have been having some nice weather lately. I will need your address. I will be bringing some beer. Is there any chemicals or fluids I should bring for the job? I imagine some brake clean, and probably radiator fluid? Any tools?

Pulling the radiator will make it easier, so if you don't mind doing a coolant flush then that'd be awesome. Brake Cleaner, for sure. I have all the tools, anti-seize, and anything else really.

You'll also need some gaskets: turbo-to-down pipe, down pipe-to-mid pipe, and possibly the up pipe-to-turbo.

Boost problems... 2006 Stage 2 Wrx on stock td04 with sti tmic, k&n typhoon intake and full 3" straight pipe ( downpipe is also 3")spiking 24psi dropping down to 10psi and building back up to normal 18psi???? Wtf is goin on.. I've already checked my bov spring and its fine, check all the possible spots of a boost leak and those are fine and my restrictor pill is okay.... What next I'm letting the car cool down again and go from there.. Popped the good and it was extremely warm by the turbo.. Keep in mind the car sat all day sense the morning drive ( no issues ) drive it for about 10 min and it was acting up. What could it maybe be?

Oh man can't wait to find out what caused a N/A engine to eat that much oil :/. My legacy wagon with 244k miles would not even eat oil kind of surprising. Also good they are covering it .
