Default Re: What I did today

Started pulling stuff off the motor to get ready to pull it out.










Need to get the heater core hoses off, but can't get them loose from either end. Would like to avoid having to cut and replace them if possible, although I could probably just trim the end and shorten them up.

Think the rear turbo may have been going bad as there was a small puddle of oil that you may be able to make out in the picture of the turbo and the intake running to the rear turbo had a thin film of oil all in it.

Also the front far right plug wires had a thin film of something on the boot. Kind of a grease or oil like residue.

just replace the hoses while they are easy to get to. dont want to reuse the old dried up ones just to have them start leaking soon after.

Any update on your surge? Am I just setting myself up to have to deal with new issues? I totally wasn't thinking about all the surge problems I've read about last night when I finally found a good deal.

Orange RTV sealant actually to try to help make up for the lack of flatness on either the lower or upper plenum mating surface, was getting a large leak there previously. RTV sealant helped stop the boost leak for the time being. Now that I actually have time I will either be replacing the upper and lower plenums, or sanding them flat myself to help amend that.

As an aside: The vast amount of rusted and corroded things that are in my engine bay, I am thinking a powder coating kit may be a very worthwhile investment for me, I will call some powder coating shops around here though and get a quote on costs first though.

Those brackets are for a cover that rolls up like a roller blind over your valuables and hooks on to the hatch. I still have mine. It sits in the corner of the garage. It would always come flying loose at the most inopportune moments.

I still have a little but not much at all. People have mixed results with the balance tube but it helped my setup a lot. If I was you Id install every thing and see how it goes. If you have issues then try a balance tube. Also the BOV can make it better or worse depending on how its set or what spring you have in it.

That's about where the mounts for the sun roof storage would be. I couldn't use mine after I put a bar in but I can't remember if I had to remove them or it was just the bar being in the way. I can't tell for sure if that's what you're showing in your pic. My car is at the paint shop now so can't get a close look to compare.
