why was this car still running stock fuel pressure regulator? just a question


Now my question is, what's wrong with using the stock regulator?


I didn't say there was something wrong with it, did I? Just wondering why they chose to use the factory one.. Can't ask a question?

Man it has been a hot minute, more like a hwile.

Shame on me.

To answer the overdue questions:
@titanium, it is an 8-bolt diff

@graphite
it came with the 4e meaning it might be rising rate fpr, just non adjustable

@thedemon
There you go

Now, I realized I missed my 10yr anniversary as T.O. member :dunce:

Onto the good stuff. Keep in mind this from late 2014 till about 1mo ago. Trying to keep it as chronological as possible

One more uninstalled pic for the money



I proceed to clean my FMIC and the piping. Thinking the pipes were fairly oil-free, I was wrong. Got the FMIC cleaned too but I'll have to upload pics




Remember the baller valve cover? Yeaaaaa, I decided to add a breather to it soooo yea... I repainted with not much success. The turbo drain got converted to a -10AN too









I also decided to convert my wastegate/ebc signal lines to braided lines too so I won't have a part 2


I wrapped the DP and wastegae dump tube and the charge piping cold side.

Oh, let's not forget the BC coilovers



Being excited to get the car going, sent the car to a shop to get dyno'ed. She made pushed numbers. 2nd or 3rd pull at 16 or 17psi. Mind you the pulled stopped at about 6200RPM?


She pushed coolant







I couldn't make progress on the cah because I had to report there

I went back to pull the head off and found




Replaced the headgasket aaaaaaaand


Pulled the head to fiiiiiind: That's right folks, cyl1 is flooded, cyl2 is wet, cyl3 is moist and cyl4 is bone dry



What the oil looked like when I drained it



Head is currently at a shop getting pressure tested, checked for a bunch of stuff too. Whether it checks out or not, the bottom end is coming out to get the block tested
