Started on the sawp this evening



Only a few things that were a pia. Getting the inlet back on and the oil drain. It was easier to remove it from the bottom near the motor rather then next to the turbo. But putting the clamp back on sucked until I thought of using a zip tie to hold the clamp open. Then it was easy to slide it over the hose and then cut the zip tie to release it into place.

But got it all installed in about 2 hrs


Tomorrow ill do the injectors and tune. Hopefully

Turbo and injectors are installed

Overall not difficult more of a pia.
Cobb ots map installed currently snd car is running good. But not really a noticeable hp increase over stage 2. Expecting to see better gains after protune.

Only qurstion now is do I get the tune or wait and do ebcs and inlet first then tune.

Well today my HOA ebca arrived (thanks wtdash) and I got my stage 4 protune from Clark.

Only started it up and let it idle for tonight but fired up perfect and was as smooth as ever. Tomorrow I'll do some logging on my way to work and get any additional tweeks as needed from Clark.

Next I need to hit the dyno and see where I'm at.. Maybe after the 1st of the year.

Well its been a few months sicne I stopped by this thread so I figuered I'd post.

Car is still runing strong on the ProTune, no codes no problems. Had planned to lower it and completely re-do the stereo and speakers but ended up spending the $ on a new camera lol.

Wow its been a year since I've updated this. guess time does fly when your not looking.

Well since the last update I still haven't lowered it or upgraded the stereo lol. Ended up doing more just maintenance items, brakes, rotors, and wheel bearings.

Did install a few things (intake and catch can). Hopefully this next week I will have my fmic installed if the pipes get back from powder coat.

intake
