  • 2013, Sept 5 - bolted header, uppipe & turbo to engine











    This bolt was a major pain in the ass.


    This was my reward to myself for finally getting that thing tight.

  • 2013, Sept 7 - bolted a/c, power steering, alternator and TGVs to engine







    This is where another pic would be if there wasn't a ridiculous 10 image per post limit.

...continued next post due to 10 image limit.

  • 2013, Sept 8 - more goods bolted onto engine, almost ready to go in



    This engine harness connector is near the throttle body, but I can't figure out what it connects to...


    These two engine harness connectors are identical, both fit the evap assembly, but there's only room for one and all nearby sensors are connected...


    Not quite sure how this all comes together, should have taken more pics before removing...


    Headed back out to the garage and got the Moroso dual-can AOS bolted into the engine bay

  • 2013, Sept 14 - picked up remaining parts from stock motor lots for sale, hit me up


  • 2013, Sept 15 - chassis ready for new engine, should be in soon


  • 2013, Sept 29 - engine dropped in, motor mounts not installed


  • 2013, Sept 30 - engine pulled out to install mounts, then dropped back in





...continued next post due to 10 image limit.

  • 2013, Oct 4 - finished reorganizing gauges and buttoned more up in engine bay




  • 2013, Oct 6 - almost done in engine bay, rerouting FMIC piping






  • 2013, Oct 7 - engine bay done, including FMIC piping rerouting (driver side, under headlight)

    Headed to Navid's shop (K-Powered in Palm Springs, CA) to get some beads welded on my FMIC piping.


    I stuck around and helped him tear down his K-series race engine (8.57 sec 1/4 mile)


    Got home and took a nap with my boy.


    Back out to the garage to finish the engine bay, DONE!

  • 2013, Oct 7 CONTINUED - engine bay done, including FMIC piping rerouting (driver side, under headlight)

    Here you can see how I rerouted the driver side FMIC piping.






    Uninstalled my APv2 to send back to Cobb.


    Have some hellaMEATY stickers left from the only batch I had cut, slapped it on the alternator cover.
    I need to get some new fcnmeaty stickers cut.

  • 2013, Oct 9 - a little troubleshooting, fluids added, fired up!

    12 gallons of Boost Juice and my Dimple magnetic plugs arrived.


    APv3 patiently awaiting installation.


    Dimple magnetic drain plug, got the trans/oil/rear diff plugs.




    Blown main fuse, was wondering why I couldn't jump start via battery terminals.

Got the interior all sorted out and then more of the engine bay buttoned up. Since my battery is located in the hatch, I was able to reroute my TurboXS FMIC piping, which allows me to reinstall my stock coolant overflow reservoir as well as maintain fog lights without rubbing on the piping.\

Pics added to the first post(s).

Still trying decide on head choices so I am very interested in your setup out come.

No pictures of head work, I'll be posting dyno results once I've got past the break in and make my way to Church for the tune.

Yeah Outfront recommends them too. Hoping they're familiar with tuning aquamist.

I was at 430~ awhp with 25lbs and a water/denatured-alcohol mixture on my last built shortblock that had no headwork.

I'm going to go with Boost Juice (meth/water) and the headwork should allow me to open it up more.

I'll likely have a daily driven map with around 20-23 psi for daily driving; and I'll have a 28-30 psi map for special occasions.

Stopped in to see my buddy Navid at K-Powered in Palm Springs. Helped him a little with his race engine tear-down and he welded some beads on my FMIC piping that had to be cut. Came home, took a nap for a few with my boy and then headed back out to the garage to finish up the engine bay.

Just waiting on my Dimple magnetic oil and (both) diff drain plugs and I'll be able to do all of my fluids, prime this thing and fire it up.

Oh, I also raised my rear coils a hair; my 275/40's chewed through the upper part of the inner lip of my rear bumper. Since I have a brand new OEM bumper on there now, I don't want that happening again.

As usual, pictures have been added to the first post(s).

I'll have to read up on boost juice. I've heard good things thus far. I ran denatured alcohol and distilled water (50/50) before but finding the alcohol was proving more and more difficult lately.

Finally on the road again! Modded the front bumper a bit for more airflow to FMIC, might cut a little more... waiting to see how I feel about how I've got it now after a few days/weeks.

Pics added to first post(s).
