    On memorial day, I began the turbo swap!! I haven't really done ANYTHING like this before, but it was fun. I only got the turbo out, however. I'll have to put the 16G in this Saturday.But I absolutely can NOT wait for this to be done! Once the 16G is in (and the boost controller), then it's...

    Walbro 190Lph install

    I second the rewire suggestion. But yeah, it's basically like replacing the stock pump. Pretty easy, just make sure you don't have a full fuel tank like I did lol you'll make a mess. And be sure not to bend the metal pipes too much, they are surprisingly easy to bend/shape. Good luck!

    So I did a few odds and ends the last couple of weeks. Had to take a short break since I had Covid at the end of March. HOWEVER, the journey continues.The biggest thing however was the installation of the Aeromotive Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator and 2G DSM Install Kit! Now I can put that...

    I love this. And I just checked Discord, there are no public DSM servers on there, so we could start one if we wanted to.

    Street Build Midengine 4G63

    This. Is. So. Cool! I love the turbo sound at idle and the bov sounds soooo good! I've wondered if this was possible, or if someone could put a 4G63 into the back of an eclipse but with an MR2 tranny... Any updates?

    Best DSM Craigslist post of the day

    If anyone wants a "backbone stock" Tsi AWD, there's one for sale in Spokane Valley. Lots of miles though.I was kinda tempted... but I'll stick to my GS-T for now. Hope this helps someone!

    Heavy Metal Toxicity

    I love Biology! I'm in Biology 270 in college right now (even though I'm studying Computer Science LOL)The things our bodies (and consequentially, our immune systems) encounter everyday are toxic. However, in most instances our bodies are fully capable of handling them. Our bodies are amazing...

    Oh yes, another build update! This one isn't SUPER interesting, just did some illegal stuff.So I FINALLY finished installing the last of my gauges, the last one being the A/F ratio gauge. I put the sensor in the rear O2 sensors place, since it appears that I have a high-flow cat of some...

    Street take overs

    No, we can not rely on the justice system to teach people to be better. That is a decision made on their own. Some go to jail, humble up, and come out great... others, the opposite happens.In the end, this is not an issue that can be solved with jail time, tough sentences, or even stricter...

    SoI am in the process of wiring up all the aftermarket gauges I have for my car (boost, oil pressure, and air to fuel ratio). I've decided I'm going to wire all those up and ensure they are working, and then I will begin replacing the turbo, injectors, ECU, etc.For simplicity's sake, I wired...

    98 GST Street Build From The Ground Up

    Looking good bro! Car looks straight and those purple pipes look dope! The abnormal panel gap is probably from body work. Has it ever been in an accident? And what are your plans for the fuel side of things?If you ever need some coolant/vacuum hoses, this kit basically has you covered...

    The journey continues... in a unique way :sneaky:So, I have a slight fascination with doing things differently from everyone else. Case in point: the way I did my fuel pump re-wire.Generally, people run the wiring under the carpet on the passenger side of the car, and hide the relay and...

    DSM OG, I'm back

    Seems like a good deal to me. I got my '99 for 3k with similar miles.If I remember right, the '99s (and maybe '98s) have a split-bearing design, and are therefor less likely to crankwalk. Doesn't mean it can't happen, but they're the sought after 7 bolt engine.

    The time has come... execute order 16G...Sooooo last weekend I ordered pretty much everything I need to finish this build. Once I found out that the engine was in descent shape, that was basically the green light to move forward with turning my mostly stock GST into a 350whp one. This is a...

    Yeah, I guess you just have to be REALLY careful with it, but some bolts are just hard to get to when installing the manifold! lol oh well, it was a $40 manifold, can't really complain.

    Ok, so it's been a couple weeks since I posted last, but I've got some things to share.First off, the Cerakoted manifold started chipping... dang it lol Got it recoated, but this time in black since it had a much better track record for not peeling/cracking. Give it another two weeks and...

    2G Who wants a big SMIC? gauging interest

    I would totally go for an upgraded SMIC. I’ve been looking for one for some time now. It would be more of a sleeper look and would allow my radiator to have unrestricted air flow. I’d pay $500 or so for one

    Forge bov, reviews?

    I put the same 1G billet aluminum bov on my car, and it works really well. Great quality and came with some extra springs. I'm still on stock psi, recirculated, and mine flutters too. I personally think it sounds kinda cool, but I've heard fluttering can be a bad thing :idontknow:

    Jnz or extreme psi

    Dang it! lol I LITERALLY just put the single layer gasket on because I'm putting a new (to me) manifold on... didn't even know there was a 6 ply version. I thought the single layer didn't look quite right... looks like I'm gonna have to get a new gasket eventually. I'm still on stock psi tho...

    I'll definitely give that a try. I knew it was pretty, uh, inaccurate to say the least lol But I do have an OBDII reader that sends live data to my phone, including my speed, and should probably have done it that way. It's just when I plug in the reader, my speedo stops working... :idontknow:

    Dude, I've got a friend with a Kia Forte hatch with the 2.4 and he and I have been looking for mod options. There's some out there, but nothing as extensive as other platforms. Don't think we'll ever have the money (or guts lol) to do an evo swap, but that is possibly one of the coolest things...

    2G GS-T vs GSX

    I've also heard that the GST has a tighter turn radius as well. Is that true? I personally like fwd cuz it's a lot lighter, but man, awd would be sweet!
