How difficult was it to install a universal intercooler pipe kit? Did you have to cut a lot of the pipes?

I only cut 1 pipe. Well 2, but I didn't use one of them. I cut the 140* pipe so it'll come off of the 3000 pipe and go the direction I needed it to. The intercooler pipes were a bitch to get on. I ended up using some of the rubber sections and the metal 90* piece from the stock intercooler pipes. So there is some restricted flow in my setup. But that's of no concern to me now, lol. If you are using the stock intercooler you need to get reducers. Whatever the piping size is down to 2". You'll need a reducer for the turbo as that is 2" also. And the 3000 pipe is 2.25" so you might need a reducer for that one.

Car is officially on the road now. I got it on the road on the 7th. It has a couple of vacuum leaks and it's throwing a code 14. So i need to fix that. It idles a little rough but thats ok it stays running. I've driven a little over 200 miles now on the new engine. I've loved every minute of it.

The first day I drove it, I had the wastegate shimmed to 10-11 psi. It ended up blowing up the coupler between the 3000 pipe and the TB. Which turned it into a boost leak. It felt like what some people on here described as fuel cut so I took out the shims to put it at stock boost. It still did it, so I retightened my intercooler pipes and still had the same problem. So I stepped back to look at the whole engine and i noticed the coupler was split all the way down the side. So I cut up a foxbody mustang's accordian hose and I'm using that for now. I'm about to order a new coupler.

I switched out the steering wheel to an 89 (which is much more comfortable than the 86-88) along with 89+ taillights. I only have a pic of the taillights right now. I've also replaced the spark plugs which I gapped to .32 and I replaced the spark plug wires.

During


After


I'll have pics of the steering wheel tomorrow. I'm thinking about buying some sound deadening material. I'm not worried about weight so it doesn't matter how much weight it adds. Once I get the sound deadening material, i'll start to redo my interior. I'm also getting the drivers side window motor fixed on Saturday. It was a bitch to pull out so I'm using a hook up and having someone at a dealership to do it for free. :biglaugh:

Wow, so a lot has happened since I last updated. On the way to get the window fixed, the car overheated. It turns out the radiator was clogged up and the cap was trashed. So I bought a new radiator, new radiator cap, and a new fan shroud. And my alternator died on me so I bought a reman. one from Bennett Auto Supply.



I also changed my master cylinder as that went on me also. I replaced it with a brand new Aisin one. I'll be in North Carolina from the 2nd to the 8th so the car is going into the shop next week while I'm away. I'm getting 4 new tires on it, a new rear window, and a new non cracked dash board.



It's pretty severly cracked. As you can see.

Here's a better picture of my dash and A/C LED conversion. The tach is only half lit. My temp gauge LED went out for some reason and I've been too lazy to pull it out to see what happened. Otherwise, the whole cluster is a bright color.



And heres a short clip of run down a local street. Open downpipe at 8 psi.



And lastly, a picture my girlfriend took...



I'll have pictures of the new tires, windows, and dash when I get the car back. And I'll finally get to put my hatch sunshade back on.

Lol I'm only buying the tires. And I'm buying them at cost so it's still not much money. The rear window is free. It's good to know people in high places, lol. But to get the money for the tires, I tiled a garage floor. So I got that and then some. It still wasn't worth it, lol. I'm putting the car in the shop when I get home so I can monitor what's going on. I'm getting quite a bit of work done to it besides the tires and windows which I will post here when it gets done.
