    Yes, launch control certainly is absolutely useless...I'm going to figure the biggest drag radials that will fit and get them on by spring.

    Added another spring to the wastegates :). I've never experienced anything like this before, pulls so hard. Enjoy! Just a 2nd gear roll on the throttle.
  3. Lifetime warranty...this is why they offer it. Because no-one want's to take the time to send it back and wait... Pretty much a marketing scam. Sorry bud.
  4. Well what did Mishimoto say? BS
  5. I'd be pissed too, I was gonna comment about Mishimoto...for the price you pay the quality seems to be poor. Obviously... I'd try to get a full refund and give your money to a more quality company. GL Bud

    Finally go the car on the ground ready to street tune. Just teed on the return and added a fitting to the DS sending unit, fuel pressure is solid. Oil filter relocation is mounted (none of it touches by the way). Ground clearance is solid, lowest point of anything is the turn down which is about 3.75". And added some pictures of the interior, wire diagram I made, and glove box mess. "

    I got the new oil filter relocation set up, pics to come in the future on that. Got the first start up done today but unfortunately I cannot control the fuel pressure. The lowest it will go is 70 psi, with the Aeromotive 13139. The e30 fuel return is too small, apparently on late model e30s there is a venturi on the drivers side of the tank that sucks fuel to the other side of the tank. I don’t know what I’m going to do. I would like to keep the factory tank which means that Venturi system needs to stay intact for the tank to work properly. I might tee the return as it enters the factory location and run another line up to the fuel pump and install a fitting. Anyone have this issue before? What a pain... Apparently this new fuel pump is the shit...lol

    Yeah I'm excited to see what it hears like through that turbo, the cam is just nasty. Hoping to get an exhaust on there that makes it as quiet as stock. Thanks @KaiserRolls On another note, I think I've got the solution to any future fueling problems...this thing is good for 535LPH at 40psi. The pump barely fits in the hole of the e30 tank. I've got to get creative with the hangar assembly, the line needs to be bigger (3/8"/10mm). I'm looking at aftermarket options. If anyone has experience modifying the fuel pump assembly please chime in.

    Basically wrapped up the engine bay today. I have to figure out where I'm going to mount the remote oil filter. Bleed the brakes and clutch. Exhaust is "temporary", I intent to install an electric cutout for the side exit and run a bmw aftermarket cat back exhaust/muffler. We'll see....its all 3.5" round/oval. I do need someone's help or ideas, I forgot to check clearance for the headlight and the turbocharger intake tube. The headlight (euro smiley) will fit without the cap in place. Is there anyone who has needed to modify the cap or came up with an idea to gain clearance?

    Updates: 1. Its amazing how forgiving powder coating can be and how good it looks. Check it out, I literally took this piece threw it in the oven for outgassing and preheat and put some powder on it. 2. Got heat shielding? Perhaps overboard? No chances. Exhaust has been installed for the last time. There are 3 v-bands and 2 collector flanges, the shit lined up perfectly...no worries on blowing out a flex pipe.
