    Well sadly due to the corona nonsense the tuner is pretty backed up and working by himself basically, have to delay getting my car in. At least she’s running strong and the weathers been good.

    First 2G street car

    So I finished up the battery relocation to the trunk and everything is running great and working as it should. Very happy with how the project turned out. Also struck some gold this week and found a local dam’er selling off a brandy new VIS carbon hood, so I picked that up for a great price and...

    First 2G street car

    This week is all about relocating the battery and what I'm calling the ghetto wire tuck. I've been wanting to do this for a while but for me to pull the entire Harness and extend it to where I want just is not an option right now as I'm rushing to put it back together for its tune appointment...

    Battery Relocation, beating a dead horse

    There are 2 off of the altenator to the fuse box and then 4 wires out of the fuse box that go straight to the positive terminal on the battery in a factory setup. I think I've overcomplicated this and will just send those 4 wires and the starter wire to the busbar and keep the factory fuse box...

    Battery Relocation, beating a dead horse

    Ok so as long as you have have an inline circuit breaker from the altenator back to the + post you can just eliminate those 4 wires all together? That's where I'm getting confused. If I just run 2ga from the positive post to the starter / altenator then I don't need those 4 white wires correct...

    Battery Relocation, beating a dead horse

    Yea I feel like a lot of the threads related to this have gone way above and beyond what is necessary to move the battery to the trunk. There's been some heated debates in the threads I've read through. Today I picked up all the parts and order the stuff I couldn't find at the stores. I'm going...

    Battery Relocation, beating a dead horse

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I think I'll be going with the second diagram I posted. Just picked up most of the supplies I need but couldn't find a bussbar, distribution box or any of the good in line fuses at the local parts stores so I'm ordering those. And yes @llxkevinxll I'm going to have...

    Battery Relocation, beating a dead horse

    This is the other diagram I found that seemed appropriate. Only thing I noticed to fix was beefing up the fuse to the alternator to at least a 100amp fuse.

    Hey guys, I know this is a topic that has been beat to death and I have done a lot of searching in the forums and read through many threads the last few nights. What I'm looking for is confirmation on a diagram I am going with for my battery relocation. Will it work and is it safe? There are a...

    Finally got the car all back together, in total it ended up being like a week long project to mount the FMIC and swap the turbo's and manifold around, but so far I'm happy and it was worth it to me. Car is now running at 14lbs on the 20G as I'm trying to keep the boost relatively low while I...

    Got to spend quite a bit of time working on the talon yesterday. The project was to get the FMIC mounted up and add in the new 20G turbo and FP manifold combo. It was a long day but pretty happy with the results. The new turbo and manifold are all bolted in and it looks awesome. Running an MVS...

    Quarantine Questions

    Good info, thanks dude. Got to spend about 8 hours today messing around with the car. So the new turbo setup is mounted up and looks awesome and got the FMIC bolted where I want it. Hopefully will have it all back together on wednesday and can go for a startup!

    Quarantine Questions

    I still run off the blackbox and car is tuned through ceddymods. And yea the plan would be to stay pretty conservative and turn the boost down a bit until its ready to be tuned properly.

    Thanks for the feedback. I currently run the blackbox ecu and car is tuned off of ceddymods so I'm not sure about remote tuning options and such with that setup. Appreciate the shout out though thanks!

    Evening Gents,So with all the quarantine stuff going on I've been doing a lot of tinkering on my 2G and cleaning things up and such. This season there were big plans to swap in the freshly built motor I've got waiting and adding my FMIC, and upgrading to the 20G turbo. Currently car is tuned...

    First 2G street car

    More quarantine fun this week. Went ahead and tackled the fuel pump yesterday, and removed the 195 and added in the new 255 which should be enough to reach my goals for the new motor and turbo setup. Fuel pump wasn't too bad but ran into an issue with the o-ring not seating properly in the...

    New Fuel Pump and car is rich

    Spot on guys thanks for the suggestions. When I removed the pump again the black o-ring didn't seat properly and I forgot to add this spacer in there so naturally it was my own error and nothing wrong with the pump or regulator. Regulators set and shes running like a champ now, so I appreciate...

    New Fuel Pump and car is rich

    Voltage was good I did check that. So im guessing like you said and others I assembled the pump incorrectly. I'm going to pull the assembly back out which is awesome, and go back through the vfaq and see where it went wrong hopefully.

    New Fuel Pump and car is rich

    Hi steve, The pump has the orings on it, as far as a check valve I did not notice one or put one on it but I do have some kicking around. Are you referring to a check valve on the feed tube? And if it is leaking in the tank has it just not seated properly, or bad oring? either way Im going to...

    New Fuel Pump and car is rich

    Thanks for the like, I dig yours as well. Its the fuel lab guage that came with it. I originally thought bad gauge as well, but it was reading perfectly prior to putting the 255 in So i think like others have mention it is leaking in the tank.

    New Fuel Pump and car is rich

    Hey Guys... Here we go... about 3 weeks ago I installed a fuel-lab AFPR in my car to prepare for a new wally 255. At the time I had a 195 pump in there and set my regulator to 43PSI and had zero issues, car ran great, regulator did its job perfectly. Today I threw in the new 255 pump and I'm a...

    Well it's been a minute since I've been on here but this quarantine life has free'd up some time to mess around with the talon a bit more. In the past few days I did a little reducing and deleting. Started by removing the cruise control components and added in a new non cruise throttle cable...

    2G new fuel pump / fpr

    yea the new pump and fpr will just help for my new turbo setup a little further down the road. Just hoping to take care of a few easy things myself before I send it out.

    2G new fuel pump / fpr

    Right so since the car didn't have an adjustable FPR when it was tuned, it should be around 42-45 psi?

    2G new fuel pump / fpr

    Hey guys, I'm upgrading my old 195 pump to a 255, and going the recommended route of adding in a fuel pressure regulator. Currently car is tuned for 20lbs on a 16g and FIC 750's. First question, is the recommended FPR psi still the 41-45 range? And second question, will I or should I need a...

    New firewall tag came in today and it came out awesome, A simple and cheap piece of metal but I think it really helps complete the look of the engine bay. Anyone have tips on what kind of adhesive to use on these?

    Good info guys thanks a bunch. Thats what I was mostly concerned with was all the prep work, and being completely new to any type of body work the last thing I wanted to do was mess it up or put in all the time and have it come out like crap. Not having the means of really respraying it was why...

    The Feals came in this week and I cant wait to see how the car sits with these on them. Not lowering the car to much.

    2gb OEM Exhaust

    Yea its got a high flow cat, unfortunately Mass is a little ridiculous with their inspections, because of the size of my can it would fail inspection even though it has no leaks and has the cat, and its well under the noise limit etc...

    More parts showed up today and I'm super stoked to get this ETS kit on. Its in great shape with a nice powder coated ETS piping kit and a greddy BOV. It's a race kit 10.5 core so I know I'm in for a little modification of the bumper to get it to fit in there nice, but i think its going to be...

    Another rainy day; so I did some light messing around with the car. Had an issue with the brake and tail lights going out when pressed and were intermittent.
