DIY clear running lights, pulled my projectors apart and cleaned the moisture out. painted my chrome trim and badges black. more to come tomorrow, ive had my sc400 3 days and im already making it my own!
put my turbo back on the car, took me a hour to bolt everything down, towed it to the exhaust shop, to find out my v-band flange is the wrong size so i told them to just weld it together cause i had enough of looking for parts. drove it home to find out it wasnt making any boost,
mess around with hoses and clamps for 3 hours trying to solve the problem, go for another test drive. it hits boost!!!! only to have my fun stopped by the sound of my compressor wheel scraping against my compressor housing. nothing was damaged thankfully because ive already rebuilt this turbo twice and im not about to strike out on my third attempt.
so to do list for tommorow, reatach compressor housing (shop did a ****ty *** job) properly bolt down my exhaust manifold, clock the turbo so my oil drain line doesnt catch on fire then should be good to go i hope
Finished Tokico HPs, tanabe springs, and rays.
Ignore the dead grass and profusion of crab grass. It has rained once in Houston in the past 2 months. I was hoping the drought would kill the crab grass. No such luck.
