Got the missing dogleg installed. Topped off the transmission and power steering fluids. Grabbed a gasket at the store and bolted the downpipe up. Welded the broken part of the coil pack bracket back on and mounted the coil pack, plug wires and plug wire cover. Plugged in a few more wires on the wiring harness. Maybe one or two other small things.

I also welded in a new catalytic converter to my daily geo metro as I had some issues on a cross country trip this summer and had to cut the thing off on the side of the highway halfway across the country. Then went and did a six mile tempo workout before my wife got home from work. Tomorrow is just a day to order a few parts for the galant. I will start building the hotpipe on Friday probably. Tomorrow I have to go grab a torque converter and take it to get restalled for a friends soon to be 8 second talon tomorrow before I go to work. And run another six mile tempo run first thing in the morning. No slacking or resting here. Always moving forward.

Got the fuel tank mounted, radiator mounted, fixed/cleaned up the wiring for the fan, mounted the oil cooler, removed the splash guards in the front fenders as they were torn up from running large tires anyway and cleaned the back of the car out. I meant to weld the hood pins in but, started working on something else and forgot. I already adjusted them in anticipation though. Just waiting on this dick we bought a fuel pump from to send it. Tomorrow I will take the hotpipe down to get welded as well as the oil cooler. Maybe I can have it back before Thursday and have it all mounted that way by next weekend I can have the fuel lines tan after the pump gets here. I think later this week we should get the ecu back as well. Very close now.

I thought I was done for the day. Then this thing showed up for so we could swap the converter. we are trying to make a race in two weeks in Vegas. So I welded the hood pins and installed the new slave cylinder and bled the clutch while I had then help. Here are pictures of the turd as well like someone was asking. I am off to run 7 miles. I have a race thanksgiving day I have to keep preparing for.

Very close now. All that is left is to go and buy the fuel lines and fittings after I map everything out. Not sure how much time and how much I can buy Friday, worst case I get it all Monday and do everything then as I am off. Over the next few days I will finish the wiring and get ready to finish things. Unless some catastrophe happens, it will run this weekend or Monday at the latest. Then on to tuning it and drive it to work a few times to make sure everything is going to work out alright for Jake.

I thought that was clear in the first post. And the pictures make that very clear. It is now cooled with fuel. This is the fourth car i have set up like this. Just think of it as water or methanol injection on steroids.

It would work wonders if Jake manned up and ran a real fuel. I expect it to work halfway decent though with all six injectors spraying pump gas. They won't be set to just a boost level. It will have at least five peramters it will have to meet before they turn on. Instead of using a heat sink to cool the air charge he will now be cooling the air chemically which we feel will be much more effective. He cannot run methanol or water injection in autocross. They do not have any issues with expanding the fuel system however. And being in southern California now he does not have a lot of access to E85.

83mm turbo
225hp dry shot(spraying first gear currently, looking to go to half track next outing)
Auto- at my house for a converter swap, had issues at the top of the track last month and a rebuild as it is making noise now
Mechanical fuel pump
8x 1650cc injectors
Aluminum rod 2.0L
Dsmlink
Boost set to 55psi currently until we get a more efficient converter

Run a best of 9.3 at altitude. Looking for mid to high 8's consistently in the spring. I have solved his engine reliability problems, now we just have to put all this power to the ground and it should do well. Getting the second set of injectors turned on in first gear at the right time is really the biggest issue we have right now. We were getting closer to having it right before the track closed and of course that was the last day for the year.

Quoting biglady112:

That is why. This car actually turns and is thrown around like they were meant to be. He was having starvation issues with the stock tank even with a full tank of fuel.






I didn't see any baffling in the the new tank, is it baffled or honeycomb to prevent the fuel from sloshing around? If not you'll starve it.

I also had issues with starvation on left turns. Turns out the pump inlet doesn't like to face the left of the tank. Moved it diagonally to the forward right and it was much happier.
