he was hoping to line up what day and time? or just hoping to line you up after me for whatever reason? so confused...

hopefully this satiates your curiosity.

in-tank walbro through stock lines to braided to FPR to Y to rails which have been capped off on one end and from FRP to return.

when i swap turbos to the 83/74, i'll be looking at in-line pumps and a surge tank and new lines from feed.

so your not running a regulated return? your regulating before the rails, using the FPR as a pass through. Feed from pump in one side and out other to the rails on the other ?

may i ask the reasoning why ???

results will be up soon enough! always gotta be planning and thinking ahead; especially when the EFRs take about a year to get!

we talked about a few fuel system designs so let me see the final setup tomorrow and i'll get back to you on a definite reply and why. thanks for asking.

i believe we've already crossed the intake/inlet hurdle, though.

the pictures above show the minor relocation that was done of the ABS unit although i didn't mention it. if you look at the first and second photos in the last series i posted, that is the ABS in it's stock location.

all the following photos are after the relocation - it wasn't much. all that was done was lift and shift the unit up and to the left as far as the lines would allow. an angled silicone coupler now fits in the space to make the slight bend and continue towards the fender.

there wasn't any movement of the power steering reservoir.

once the final design is figured out for the intake and it's made we will see if the PS reservoir has to move. hopefully the line going to the pump is cleanly addressed.

and yeah, whenever you have a chance on the spline count of the inner CV inner rod, let me know. hopefully frank at dss is gonna put something together for this r180.

thanks for the input and i'll be sure to post up once the intake is done!
Interesting! I may PM you as to what you did and how you made your bracket (template?). I had to move my ABS out of the way but right now it's just resting on my inlet. Stupid 2008+ had to make that part of going rotated difficult!!

Those are some interesting issues, never heard of that. Mind if I ask what solenoid?

Edit... a grimmspeed EBCS? Weird. Never heard of any of their parts failing. Thinking its an ecu related issue or the solenoid grenaded?

the problem was with the BW BCSV (boost control solenoid valve) that is integrated with the BW EFR turbo - not a grimmspeed part.

once the car was start up, we got a DTC that showed the error and then we tried to use a GS EBCS but it was too late as the damage had already been done - likely a short of some sort.

then we played with a manual boost controller but it was not stable and kept spiking and we did not feel safe playing with such a large margin of error.

so it's on wastegate pressure with the max that we could get out of the setup at the time which was only 18psi, unfortunately.

going to do some diagnosis and repair on the items mentioned and am setup for another tuning session for june 18 hopefully for a final tune and pushing 26psi+ to put the turbo in a much more efficient range.

thanks for the support and queries. i'll keep you folks updated as best i can.
