I bought some lines and fittings today.











With the -10 AN side facing upwards it looks like it's VERY close on hood clearance. I may swap it around and see how well it fits.





EDIT: I did swap the top of the pump around so the -8 AN input is on top and that fitting ends up saving around 5/8" of height vs. the -10 AN on top. I think it should be enough to clear the hood.

I got the rails to go along with the lines and fittings today. They are made by IAG. Very simple and sleek design, but well made. Now I have to pull the intake manifold back off and get them installed and lines routed.

Last night I did a little more work in the garage. Spent a couple hours cleaning up the mess I had made. All the boxes of parts were just piled up on my bench and tool chest. I bought 4 more Home Depot totes and packed things away and then cut up all the cardboard boxes for recycling.

While I was doing that I also installed a new bench vice that my brother got me for my upcoming birthday. My old one was from Harbor Freight and the threads completely stripped out. This one is from Amazon. I hope it holds up a little better than the Harbor Freight one.



After that I did a few small things on the car. First I installed and tightened the header bolts. I used the Snap On swivel sockets that my other brother got me for Christmas. The inner two bolts used to be near impossible to tighten properly. A shallow socket wasn't deep enough due to the stud and a deep socket with swivel was too long and hit the header.

I usually ended up trying to snug it down with a stubby open ended wrench. The swivel sockets made it super easy. They're shallow sockets, but they have an indent in the middle that the stud sits into and allows the socket to engage the nut. Totally worth it to have this tool for special instances like this (tranny bolts should also be similar).



While I was under there I also installed the O2 sensor and the EWG. The EWG points straight down and the dump is just a short 90 bend the shoots the vented exhaust straight backwards. This position makes it much easier to access than the normal EWG position on stock location setups.

Then I drilled the strut tower for the oil scavenge pump mounting holes. I used a stepped drill bit and it went through easily. Then I just put in a bolt from the back and used a nut on the engine bay side. The pump includes rubber grommets to dampen vibration.



The last thing I did was to pull the banjo bolt from the OEM turbo oil feed on the back of the head and then cut down a random bolt I had and plugged that hole. I need to buy some more hardware so I can pull oil for the turbo from the front of the head (AVCS) to reduce the length of the oil feed line.

Velocity stack arrived:



Also picked up my (hopefully) last two fittings (-10 to -10 adapter and a 120 -8 AN fitting):

I picked up a -12 AN line and fitting for the oil return. It makes -8 AN look tiny. Haha.



Installed with just a bench vice and adjustable wrench so they're not perfect. Good enough for me though.

Last night I finished hooking up everything to the sump and the boost controller/EWG. I also cut a hole in the bumper for the exhaust dump.

This thread makes me want to spend more money on my car than I should... Can't wait to see this finished.

More side angle showing the hoses next to the compressor housing:

You can also see the blanket installed on the turbo and that I cut down the downpipe/exhaust dump.

I hacked it off with my angle grinder and then Fobia cleaned it up and made it pretty with his belt sander.

Here's a shot with the chopped off exhaust dump. Trying on various intake options.

We're you just testing the fog light cover or will you drive with that on when not at the track?

It is made by Fobia Fab in MN. He has done many low mount setups. This one was a partially custom one that was based on the KillerB header. Normally he builds the entire header himself, but I already had the KillerB and I like the design.

Thanks! I am not very good with getting things shared on Facebook/Instagram so it was interesting to see it happen. It started with a post on AWD Army:



Then it was on Instagram:



And then 1320 posted it the next day:

Looking awesome Ben! Can't wait to see what kind power this setup puts down and how it goes down the track.

How does the oil sump work? I see the drain on top and then two additional lines. How does those plumb in? Does one of them feed oil to make sure the pump is never trying to suck air? Curious how this works.

I hope it is at least as fast as my last setup. Haha.

The sump has 3 ports. -10 AN on the top. This is the input to the sump (from the turbo's oil drain). The other two are -8 AN. One of them goes to the scavenge pump. The other one is a vent. I am going to tie it into the crankcase vent lines.

The vent does not feed any oil. The only oil is coming in from the turbo drain. The vent is so that the pump can suck air if needed. Otherwise it will just pull a vacuum and this is hard on the pump and bad for flow. The vent allows the pump to run with little to no load.

The other function of the sump is to allow oil to pool inside of it when the car is turned off. Gravity pulls all the oil in the lines back into the sump. If it weren't there it would just back up into the turbo and then smoke on start up.

The turbo will be fed oil from the front of the head with a -4 AN line. Basically just like any other set up would, but a little longer line to reach the remote mounted turbo. Nothing really interesting there.

How often do you plan to drive the car with that exhaust dump? Im really curious as i want to do a similar exhaust/wastegate dump setup either out of the hood or relocate the turbo to a similar location to a daily driver.... lol, although i am completely going to ignore the fact that this is beyond illegal...

Excited to see the outcome!

I'll drive it when I can. If it's too ridiculous I'll get a full exhaust made. I didn't want a hood dump because the windshield ends up all black. Plenty of Honda's have pro en that. Haha.
