Default Holy Crap!!!

Sorry I just had to vent off some steam. Just got finished tearing apart my entire engine compartment to make way for the stage 2 I am doing. Got the plugs, and injectors, and upipe complete today. Not bad for 6 hours of work I think.

But man for those who have done this before I am sure you can understand how I am feeling. That upipe, and the passenger side fuel rail was really starting to piss me off, but thank god it is done.

Anyone else have as much trouble as I did with the bottom two bolts on the stock upipe, and that last 12mm bolt holding the passenger side fuel rail on? wheeewww, thanks for listening, <end venting>


P.S. My arms are scratched to hell, but to overcome the pain I keep thinking to myself.........Your saving money installing it yourself!! (at least I hope so)



L8R,


King

I know people who have taken 6 hours just to do the uppipe. Yeah you know who you are. Dude it's a PITA, just be glad you're done with it. Until you have to get your car smogged.

Thats exactly what I am dreading about in the future, But I will find a way to make it pass( $$$$) I am extremely happy the hardest parts are over IMO(Upipe & Injectors) but still have a few more things to button up, then I will attempt to fire her up.

Okay Jay I have an update:


I only had a little bit of daylight to work with today since I didn't get started until 4:30 but I have the turbo on , and I have everything back on in the engine bay(gonna do a checklist manana to make sure everything is tightened properly and fastened just to be safe. Tommorow will replace the fuel pump(should be a sinch) and place the chip in(already have the emi wired so it should just plug in, oh yeah and the MBC should be a snap as well. I will let ya know when she fires up!!!

I don't think Shiv gets up before 10am...just a rumor.
