Thanks Matt. I'm actually looking forward to showing it off and the ridiculing that'll surely follow! Very Happy

And Steve, I will try not to!!! But the dyno tune IS saturday... Wink

Well I will be looking that's a guarantee! I've gotten into turbos recently so I want to see this in person. Did you even own this car when you had that mod day? Razz

Saturday? Well that means you HAVE to keep driving it and "ease" it into performance mode!

Got almost 200 miles on it so far. Smile It'll be ready.

And I bought it in March, so pretty sure I had it for the mod day.

All joking aside. This thing is powerful. It sounds like nothing I have ever heard, yet it pulls hard with little effort. Makes me want an STI. Very Happy

So, still chasing gremlins. Running badly (chugging) under low throttle, high load, off boost, under 3K rpms. Runs awesome once boost starts to build. Passed pressure tests. Was wondering if I messed up the PCV system. I didn't.

I finally had some time tonight to double and triple check everything. My lines were routed as stock, just not with stock pieces. I added another catch can today, so now I have one for the head vent tubes and one for the pcv, both T'd into the same port on the inlet, sharing the vacuum. But they are independent before that point. Essentially set up as the Perrin inlet tube instructions say to do, but with catch cans in line.

Here's a couple pics:








I also removed and cleaned the throttle body and replaced the O-ring. Has anyone ever done a coolant bypass for the TB? I used to do that on my other cars, figuring it was a good idea to cool the intake temps a little further by not having it flow through a TB with engine temp coolant running through it. Never had any problems in winter in my other cars. I just used a piece of 5/16" hose on the engine side and a couple vacuum caps on the TB to keep the crap out, in case I decide to return it to stock design.





While I was doing all this, I also zip-tied every vacuum connection I could find and more permanently secured my EBCS and MAP sensor and rerouted the lines to the EBCS. I replaced the check valve/filter between the intake and MAP with a new Subaru replacement, too.

I'm just waiting on my new Depo gauges to show up (oil pressure and boost) to replace my cheesy Sunpro ones, and I will put the intercooler back on it, button it all back up, hook the battery back up, cross my fingers and go for a ride.

Fixt!!!! Very Happy

Took it for a re-tune today and all is happy in the world now. The MAF tables and scaling were all over the place. There must have been something wrong on the original tune. Maybe too much turbulence in the inlet pipe that the MAF was picking up with the old PCV/head vent routing. The 2nd catch can and keeping the two systems independent seemed to do the trick. He did his magic and it runs and drives 100% now! Very Happy He even took some boost out down low, because the turbo spools so quick, to try and get me better gas mileage. It drives so much better off boost now! And it idles better. It's even smoother now when taking off from a stop. Woot.

I'm happy again. Smile

Coilovers next. Wink Got em, need to install em.
