    Congrats, looks like you did a sweet job! Can't wait to see how the next stage of this goes and how that holset will be when fitted!

      Yesterday was the maiden voyage of my baby. I put the first 50 miles of hard break in on her and she took it with ease. Lots of engine breaking and moderate boost to set the rings.

      This was also my first experience with the new 6 puck act HD clutch and Streetlight flywheel. I absolutely love it. It is so much grabbier than stock, but once you get used to it, its a blast to drive! Now I go for an alignment tomorrow and put another 500 miles of break in on this oil change!

          Oh does it ever! Im about 100 miles into the break in and everything is solid. Cant wait until it warms up and our roads aren't so gross. Then I can start getting ready for the new turbo and what not.

                Did another oil change today at 200 miles roughly and the particles in the filter cleats have drastically diminished from before (as expected), and the filter media is no longer that dark gross colour.  The engine is still 100% leak free and running strong. Haven't had any issues what so ever with it, which i am ecstatic about! Lets see what the next 500 miles bring!

                  Just ordered a Perrin AOS today. And working on a battery relocation setup to make extra room for IC piping and washer tank/coolant overflow tank.

                    So the other day I go to drive my tacoma to find out that a damn army of mice has made a nest inside the blower fan/filter are. So this just got towed by MPI yesterday. Great. Then I go to work on my subi today, only to find out that a squirrel tore the crap out of my hood insulation. My heart nearly exploded. After all my hard work this happens. So i pulled the IC off and vacuumed everything up and checked all wiring and hoses. Luckily he didn't touch any of that. Went for a drive and everything checked out thankfully. I only left the car outside for one night too. Crazy. Im sick of mother nature eating my vehicles!!!!!

                        That's some ****ty luck.

                        But good job with the rebuild. I probably would of flipped seeing that insulation hanging there.

                          I crossed the 500 mile mark today and things are doing great. I received my new Perrin AOS the other day and will be installing it this weekend likely.

                          I have also been building a dual reservoir for my coolant overflow and washer fluid tanks. It will be mounted where the battery is, once i buy my odyssey and relocate it to the trunk. I will also eventually be powder coating it wrinkle black.

                                Got my Perrin AOS on today and hated every single minute of it. Such a bugger to install. I can't wait to get the intercooler and turbo relocated to make some room to turn a wrench in the crammed engine bay.

                                This weeks car adventure will be to get an alignment, and to get a lightweight battery relocated to the rear (odyssey pc680 or Deka). Then I can instal my tank that i made.

                                        well in that case I'm jealous :( Oh well she's all good now.  Probably had something to do with the fact that i ordered the FMIC one since i will have an FMIC soon enough. Therefor I had to fab my own bracket which needed to be remade 3 times hahah.

                                          I finished up my battery relocation and washer/coolant tank this past weekend and am very happy with the results. It really cleaned up the cluttered engine bay and is making good room for when i run the FMIC piping. I just can't seem to put the tig welder down haha.
