Worth the wait.

From the store on this forum. Took a couple of weeks for the stickers to actually come in the mail.

Not my car but did a compression and leak down test. 110, 120, 120, 130, 2.5% leak on all 4. Checked timing, its perfect. Valve train problem imo.

Got Engine Logics to swap out my TD-04 for a VF46, put on a Perrin TMIC, 850cc injectors, and 255 Walbro. After the tune it runs real nice! Alot more top end.

Yeah, haha, it did, but I tell you what, I also got peace of mind. I trust them, and know everything was done right, and my car will run hard and dependably. Besides, I REALLY don't trust myself to do most of that install work, except for possibly the TMIC and the fuel pump. Well, the TMIC didn't cost anything to install because they'd have to remove and reinstall the old one for the turbo swap, and after reviewing the fuel pump install instructions, I decided it wasn't worth the hassle of doing myself.

Besides, I saved a ton of money by getting good deals on all the parts

Oh god I know, I've been wanting to get rid of the plastic pos for a while. Think I am going to polish it just to smooth it out, then have the intake and a few other things coated chrome.

just for kicks, lifted it up and rolled around under it for a couple hours. Nice to actually see how everything is laid out and understand the functionality...beyond all the vague advertising hoopla. everything looks good! Bought a couple of torque wrenches and checked a few things. Thinkin about a few upgrades.
