    New Turbo Leaking

    Well time to break the bad news. I did the compression test and cylinder 2 was at 90. So, I did a wet test and it came up to 125. I meant to post this yesterday. I will be going to pick up a built short block tomorrow.

    New Turbo Leaking

    I appreciate the kind words Kryndon. I removed the catch can and my PCV line and breather line are back to stock. I wouldn’t tear into the turbo if it comes to it I’ll ship it to Justin and see if he sees anything. Honestly, I will only know more with a compression test which I did right after I...

    New Turbo Leaking

    Sorry haven’t updated in a few days. I got super discouraged by this whole ordeal after dumping so much money into the car. Also before reading below, I want to note that the car has not ran for almost 3 years. I did put it together at the end of 2017 and idled it a handful of time in which I...

    New Turbo Leaking

    Well, my catch can had a check valve pointed in the wrong direction and my PCV line had a check valve pointed in the wrong direction which ended up pushing air into the crank case and letting 0 pressure out....I was dumb very very dumb and excited and just threw the lines on without checking...

    New Turbo Leaking

    So, I had an issue with the PCV routing the first time I started the car and had entirely too much crank case pressure. It ran 20 seconds according to ecmlink. At this point I’m starting to think that 20 seconds was long enough to screw the seal on the turbine side. And I completely agree that...

    New Turbo Leaking

    I know where the oil is coming from. I never said I didn’t know where the oil is coming from. And 1990TSI you are correct about there being a crush washer on the fitting that goes into the turbo. I had been awake like 30 hours. My issue is there is oil being pushed past the turbine side seal...

    New Turbo Leaking

    It is 4an feed line from OFH so no crush washers. It was just rebuilt and literally has 3-4min of idle time on it. What I haven’t checked and feel dumb for now is oil pressure. So, I will be going to auto parts store for a gauge and install kit tomorrow.

    New Turbo Leaking

    Alright I am calling all gurus for this. I have talked with JusMX already and we both aren’t sure what’s going on. My old school green is slowly leaking during idle(see attached picture). I fixed my PCV system back to stock. I pulled the drain line and there aren’t any kinks or blockages in the...

    TewTew the Blue Snail

    New Update! Wish I would have taken more picture. To start, I pulled the transmission because the last time I had the car running I was having disengagement issues. So, I replaced the beat up Fidanza flywheel with an OEM 6-bolt flywheel after having it resurfaced and the step height checked and...

    2G Any takers ?

    Sounds super vague honestly. My opinion is that turbo seals are shot as you shouldn’t have “manageable” oil passing out of the turbo. I would ask him to do a compression test as well as a list of what mods that are on it. Sounds like fuel parts were upgraded without using any tuning software...

    TewTew the Blue Snail

    It has been a long while since I have updated this build. Honestly, the car sat in my garage in florida for a year and a half, went through a hurricane, something fell on it during the hurricane and put a dent by the gas door, and then it sat outside at a family members house since mine was...

    ECMlink First time tuning on my own

    Okay got the car warmed up and got the ISC to 29 and the IdleAdjust to 145. Now I am watching these videos over and over to try and figure out how to get my A/F Ratio to 14.7 at idle. Other then that what else do y'all see that I need to do?

    ECMlink First time tuning on my own

    I do have Delta 272's in it. I will adjust the isc tonight and also I will make sure to get it to operating temp. For the "disable airflow smoothing w/sd operation" it doesn't show that it is checked on my laptop. That kinda worries me that it shows on your side but not mine like it is checked...

    ECMlink First time tuning on my own

    Hopefully I did this correctly. Here is my first log and I have no idea what I am doing besides watching ecmlink videos. Also watched all of Scott Laird's videos on youtube. Still not really getting any of this from watching videos but I do learn well if I have something to read over and over...

    2G No Start Condition

    Man I love this community!

    2G No Start Condition

    Okay tried banging on it did nothing. The starter looks fairly new, but I have no idea whether it's reman or not. Thank you for the encouragement this is literally the only thing stopping the car from running to go get the exhaust welded and dial in the tune for this hx40.

    2G No Start Condition

    I'll go try that and to answer your question I did just put it back together over the last week so you never know. I did jump the starter with a screw driver and it worked as it should but I turn the key to start and nothing happens so I am going crazy.

    Okay so I read through, and tested everything that I feel pertains to my situation from http://www.dsmtuners.com/threads/how-to-diagnose-a-no-start.217951/ . My starter, starter relay, and everrything is getting power to it. When I turn the key the fuel pump turns on the relay clicks, but the...

    2G 6-Bolt swapped wiring and Connectors

    2G 6-Bolt Swapped HX-40 Questions

    Hello, So, I have ran into an issue that I have no idea what to do. I have my HX40 installed and now I cant put my downpipe on because it hits my dip stick tube. I have tried bending it a little, but that didn't work at all. I am at a loss, and would see if anyone has had this issue, or...

    2G 6-Bolt swapped wiring and Connectors

    Awesome thank you ! This helped tremendously, but I still have some that are on that list that there is no where to plug them up. Are there some connectors that are not used in a 6-Bolt swap?

    2G 6-Bolt swapped wiring and Connectors

    Hello Everyone, So, I have my car mostly back together after replacing the clutch, and the turbo. I have ran into the issue that I didn't label where the connectors go, and it is a Full 6-Bolt in a 2g. I have a FSM for my 95' Talon and I have the one for a 92' Talon. I am very savvy...

    2G 6 Bolt swap and ECMlink

    Well it ran when I bought it and drove it 150miles back to my house and for a week then found the turbo was garbage so while the car was down I got in a bind and had to sell something which turned out to be my ECU.either way I will verify the way the previous owner did it whether it is invert...

    2G 6 Bolt swap and ECMlink

    Yes I am running a 1g cas. Okay so invert cas is now on my list to do. This is the kinda items I was asking about not actually selecting what block is in there but any special parameters for having a 6 Bolt swapped.

    2G 6 Bolt swap and ECMlink

    Okay so I have searched high and low for what all I need to select in ECMLink for having a 6Bolt swap. Like are there certain things that need to be selected for the car to run with a 6-Bolt? I have read both RRE and Magnus 6 Bolt in a 7 Bolts webpages. I just want to know if there is anything...

    Painting engine block with vht??

    The reason paint chips and flakes off all has to do with prep work. If you properly prep the block and make sure there is absolutely zero dirt, oil, grease, and fuel. Then scuff with scotch brite pad then prime it wait the proper amount of time for primer to cure then scuff with 600 grit sand...

    TewTew the Blue Snail

    Okay have a small update for tonight. I got my M12-1.25 Tap in got all the flywheel bolt holes tapped, and installed new OEM 6-bolt flywheel bolts. Snapped a picture of the stripped bolt and I figured out why the bolt stripped. The previous owner used 7 Bolt(20mm) flywheel bolts instead of 6...

    An update on the car. Almost two months later, and my car still isn't running. Mainly because of lack of time as I am in the Air Force, and went TDY for a bit. Anyways, after I got back had to spend time with the wife the first weekend so this past weekend I actually got to get out in the...

    2G Better bulbs for Headlights

    Thank you for the replies! These are the answers I was looking for, because I definitely want to stay away from HID's at all cost unless I had to use them. So for using the Ultras or ZXE's do you just get one bright set or do you buy a high beam bulb and a low beam bulb. Also, what is a good...

    2G Better bulbs for Headlights

    Okay so I see a lot of questions on how to retrofit or convert over to projectors or HID, but that isn't what I want to do. I want to keep my oem headlight exactly how it is but I can barely see with the lights that are in it. Is there any specific bulbs that can help with this, or do i HAVE to...
