I just ordered two more Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 215/50ZR17 tires. So I'm set on brand new tires.

The tires on it now, one on the back is newer than the rest (I hate this on an all wheel drive car especially with LSD's) and the rest are dry cracked.

I also ordered a 3M headlight restore kit, VHT wrinkle red valve cover paint and flat black Valspar Anti-Rust Armour aerosol paint. A ordered a set of wire wheels as well to prep the valve cover surface for paint.

Got the tires put on today. Went for a 30-40 mile drive. Had a blast on the straight Iowa roads.

So I checked the turbocharger for shaft play and found absolutely none in either of the possible directions.



I pulled the plugs out and found it has Champion spark plugs... They do appear to be new but they are not NGK's so... Luckily on a hunch I ordered a set of NGK BPR6ES's and they have already been on their way for the past few days. I knew I needed a valve cover gasket and I figured I'd throw in the spark plug tube gaskets as well. Which I'm glad I did because I found one leaking pretty severely.




I removed the upper timing cover to have a look at the belt and I'm quite certain that I need a new timing belt and related components... I need to look at the service manual to see the recommended change intervals but just from looking at the belt it looks pretty worn to me.

Purchased a metal EVO 8 blow off valve. Which will hold boost north of 20psi.

Evo 8 BOV arriving Thursday. The factory 2G BOV is plastic and doesn't hold boost well.

The 1G BOV is an upgrade over the 2G and is metal but doesn't like to hold boost well past 15psi. Plus to use it I'd have to modify my BOV housing to use it.

So I went with the EVO 8 factory BOV as it is designed to hold at least 21psi as that's what the EVO 8 puts out stock. It's metal and bolts right on.

Holy clean ride for an awesome price! Just don't go blowing the welds on your intake manifold!
On a serious note, are the led side gauges stock?

I'll try not to pull a Brian Earl Spilner.

Nope, they are aftermarket. And were installed poorly and incompletely. The factory boost gauge is built into the cluster. It has a - boost and a + boost so it's not very useful.

Only thing it's good for is telling whether your making boost or whether you are not.

Well, got the EVO 8 BOV or BPV rather installed. Boost leak is fixed I think, or the largest boost leak anyhow.

Since this thread isn't really so appealing to this crowd I think I'll slow it down as for the updates. If I ever get serious with a CB7 again you all might see me around more.

Keep on keeping on cb7tuners! I learned a lot from this group and learned a lot about cars in general from the CB7 chassis! I owe a big thanks to both!

Who knows I may get tired of DSM's and get back into the CB7 chassis hot and heavy one day.

Coming along nicely the head lights are a night and day difference. New parts are always good, any eta on those installs.

Keep the updates coming. This is a beautiful car. I can't believe you found something so clean for the age. It practically looks like it rolled off the lot yesterday. I know we don't all comment that much but we do appreciate seeing the progress.

Thank you! I was surprised how the headlights came out myself.

It's looking like this weekend.

I got a screw in one of my brand new tires and found that my valve cover is cracked. Found both of these instances yesterday I was just too saddened to post about it.

I've purchased a used valve cover off eBay and I'm dealing with Tire Rack trying to get a replacement. They will come through I just have to wait. I plugged the tire for now. The car doesn't exceed 35mph during it's commute each day. And the duration of the trip is only 3.8 miles one way. I'm hoping to have a new tire on it by the end of this week.

I'll try. And thanks! I just don't want to over post unrelated topics/cars which is my concern but this forum is pretty darn good. I like it more than any where else. I'm just not doing anything CB7 related anymore. Mines sitting in a parking garage where it's been for 3 weeks now.

Thanks for the uplifting comments guys. With the luck I've had the last couple days it's nice to read something positive.
