I'm set up to start the beginning of July so I have time to find a place and get my move on. I'm trying to get them to pay for relocation. We will see.

That is for

10' -6 hose
9 -8 straight fittings,
3 -8 90 fittings
2 -6 90 fittings,
1 -6 straight

Finally another inline filter so i have 2 to protect my pumps, plus the big fuel lab one post pumps

I had an idea while driving that I am going to swap some -8 stainless onto my catch can, it will all be free and extra so might as well.

Teflon hardware showed up today, there is a big difference in size of hose, so i grabbed what i thought was -6 hose and a fitting to try it out before bed. 2 hours later i have 2 fittings done. One took hour and 50 minutes because i was trying to use a -6 fitting on -8 hose.

2 bloody thumbs and a lot of swearing later i realized there was smaller hose in the box. Even using the right stuff the -6 is much harder than -8 to put together. -8 was a breeze. -6 has issues getting the male piece through the olive and pressing the Teflon out enough to fit. the teflon likes to kink easier on -6 too.

Hopefully will finish up tomorrow now that ive got the hang of it.

You got it! I will do a DIY, because there was a LOT of learning as I went.
The last fitting took me 90 min I dont know if the 2nd hose I had was a different batch or what, but I couldn't get the olive over the Teflon to save my life.

Step one, is cut and flare out the Steel casing to put the olive on


The "vise" side was automatically flared by the Grinder, worked out good. The other side was nice and tight.


Put both fittings on the side that stays tight, so that you dont have to force it over the steel.


Put the Olive over the teflon, and push against your work bench to bury it.


Pull up the fitting


Lube up with water the other end, and push through the olive


Flip over, repeat, and tighten down.


Spilled gas over the carpet and the backing so I gutted that, I am going to make a nice one this summer w/ a grounding block / +12V on the bottom so that I only 1 wire going to and from the battery

What brand were your old rubber lines? I have Earl's Perform-O-Flex hose and mine haven't started to stink yet. I only have the lines in engine bay but it doesn't smell after it sits in the garage. Does it take a while before the start to weep?

Old lines were Goodrich i think. They have Gs on the fittings, i didn't build it.

Motor bay might not have weeping because it isn't open. Earl's is good stuff too, i wanted their Teflon lines but just for what i did would have been 800+

Just got home - went out for a bite to eat afterwords.
Watching the videos is almost embarrassing at how slow I shift, and makes me appreciate some of the other guys on here who can really cut gears.

This was the best video for the night, I kinda give a description on the video, but I had mostly 1.95-2.05 60' times with avgs in the mid 8s for the 1/8th mile.

Best time was a 1.89 60' with a 8.293 @ 88 mph.
I learned right at the end that I need to let the turbo build a little longer, and ride the clutch a fuzz longer.
I also KNOW that my audi ruined my manual habits, I never push in the clutch all the way without thinking about it, so that doesn't help. Final complaint. 3rd never wants to play nice with 2nd.

All in all still fun, but not going back till I am back from P&L for E85 tune, dont want that clutch slipping on dyno.

Nice!

I just got my car switched over to the v88 from an aem series 2. That was fun learning everything over again. haha.

Did you ever get your cal table to match your wideband gauge? I have an aem uego and I ended up using a linear cal table and adjusting the settings to get it to match. I used a table initially with the setting from aem and it was off all over the place.

Vipec / Link FTW.

I did, its still not perfect but better, its off by a tenth or two at 11.2, but I'm cool with quick mental conversions. At the dyno I trust the dyno wideband vs a cheap $80 sensor.

Thanks for the compliment on the car , appreciate it!

This the mishap I had last night. Somehow I changed something in my timing map and everything got shifted down a few rows and I didn't catch it. On this pull I ended up with 20.5 degrees of timing at redline instead of my normal 16.5



I'm not set up to pull timing on knock yet so the ecu didn't do anything to stop it. It was loud enough to hear over the engine and I freaked. I pulled the plugs today and they looked fine and no change in compression since the last test.



I'm set up now to pull a max of 6 degrees on knock but more important I fixed my timing map.

Are you using the internal knock control with the stock sensor? If so, what are your settings? Frequency, etc. I have 4-10k wideband selected for mine. I have my ignition retard setup pretty close to what I had set on my aem. Just wanting to see if im close on the setup. Haha. I have seen some high numbers on mine. The gain is set to 6 though so im assuming it might be a little different than yours.

Oh ya. Its much nicer and smoother now. Feels like it should as far as driveability. Haha.

My aem wideband has always been within 0.1 afr of the o2 on my friends ds dyno. I check it every time I'm there and it's always been right on. Being able to check my numbers against something I know is right has helped me trust mine when I start logging though.

Finally got the keys!!!

First project completed:






This took a lot more work than I anticipated. Probably 12 hours of preparation by myself and 4 hours for 2 guys painting.

I am going to paint everything white too eventually. Probably mid summer
