Please DO NOT Post In The General Section

From this point on until otherwise briefed, posting in the general section of Performance Tech is prohibited. The only thing to remain here will be the stickies. We would just delete this section, but that would cause unintended results.

The majority of the threads created can appropriately be placed in one of the Performance Tech sub-forums or Technical; and the posting of them here is detrimental to the activity of said forums. If you have any questions about where you need to place your thread PM me or one of the other mods.

For the most part you all have caught on without this post, but there have been a few habitual offenders that forced me to say this.

Everyone will get a couple of warnings from here on out, after that I just start deleting threads.

Again if you have any questions, PM me or one of the other mods.

    Prep work done so far to prepare:

    *Exedy Stage 1 Clutch (installed new in February)
    *Re-machined Head (was warped and leaking oil...had it machined back to spec.)
    *Compression Check (near perfect, done right after head job)
    *Replaced ALL belts, and water pump (came with headjob, obviously)
    *All new Gaskets (Head, Valve Cover, etc etc)
    *New OEM axles in the near future...
    *Installing polyurethane MM inserts just to be safe...
    *Cleaned the shit out of the engine bay, seafoamed, and various other maintenance...changing fluids and such.

    *Also, spending about 2-3 hours a day on here and the Uberdata forum teaching myself the tuning basics so that im not a thorn in MRX and R33's asses once i get this baby running i can actually tune and not be crying for more basemaps and chips in the mail...(learning more by the day)

    Theres a couple things im probably forgetting, but thats the basic list so far...anything you guys recommend that im forgetting? Engine has ~108,000 as of now...

        are you doing all the work yourself?

          for the most part, yeah. all the install will be done in my driveway... my dad will probably help out a good deal, and my buddy (who drives an srt) owes me a favor, so i might have a little more help than expected... still not expecting this to be a walk in the park.

          oh, and if anyone in orlando is reading this, youre welcome to PM me and come help out!

            dang if you were like 14 hours north i would so be there to help lol


              Looking good so far, I have a 14b for sale if you decide you want to upgrade later on. That 13g will spool pretty quick though, also run out of steam in the upper rpms.


                gonna try and finish fabbing up charge pipes tonight after work.

                going to the junkyard in the morning to see if anything tickles my fancy...

                ill post pics tomorrow of all the new goodies...finish line is in finally in sight!

                  little update

                  So....sold the 13g, because i found a very good condition 14b (did anyone on here sell one in the last few days on ebay, because it was me who bought it...) so now, playing the waiting game...

                  i know ive been delaying this project for almost 2 months now, but ive been working 7-5 mon-saturday and havent had any free time with the car... luckily, my job ends this friday, so plans are as follows...

                  chip p06 this weekend
                  finish fabbing up charge piping
                  get DP flange welded, pipe bent to clear the block
                  some other various maintenance

                  i installed the gauge pillar, along with the oil pressure & boost gauges, but theyre just chilling until the rest goes trying to get the smaller stuff out of the way so it simplifies the install...

                  some newer pics...

                  anyways, im shooting to have everything on next week and be driveable by the weekend...we'll see whats in store ::crosses fingers::

                    Nice bro good stuff, now I'm just waiting for my parts to get here!

                      Just FYI, those eBay piping kit couplers/clamps are garbage. My 323 GTX intake coupler has held up 300x better than those. I highly suggest upgrading at least to some t-bolt clamps.

                        t-bolt clamps won't get tight enough on those pipes without crushing them...I know from experience

                        180 whp/217 ft-lbs super hot, super humid, super rich, boost falling off at 8psi
                        18psi boost spike = BOOM!!!!!
                        currently being rebuilt


                          I haven't had that issue yet, but I highly suggest upgrading those couplers/clamps or keeping the boost minimal until a proper set of pipes can be fitted. That is my project for this weekend.

                          I will say the piping kit was worth the 130 dollars to get a nice mock up of where the pipes will run, etc.


                            i guess there seems to be some mixed opinions on here about the ebay kits....either some people are happy with them and theyve held up...or they dont even know theyve got multiple boost leaks...

                            yeah, ive already got a set of t clamps for the couplers, but money is rather tight currently so im making do with the piping kit until i can afford something nice....i figure ill just use them while i keep the boost low for a couple weeks while im still tuning the car...

                              I'd suggest getting that kit together and getting the kinks worked out of the tune and all, and then buying a bunch of assorted bends and good silicone couplers and clamps and getting the majority of it welded, either steel or aluminum. I just dropped 220 for 5 90 degree bends, 5 45 degree bends, 6 couplers, 12 t bolt clamps, and 1 2.5" to 2" reducer from


                                nice setup, how much you spent. i think im going to go boosted for a bit.

                                also imo i would worry more about boost and fuel pressure than oil presure
