So my car had been progressively consuming more and more oil up to the point where I was going through 2 liters a tank. This led to the rebuild and balance of the 14B. I probably could have gotten a used 16g for the price of the rebuild but why buy some one else's problem. I also ported the oil relief hole on the filter bracket (sorry forgot to take pics of that). I wanted to know what the oil pressure would now be at since the stock gauge doesn't work, so I installed a $15 buck gauge from princess auto. I mounted the gauge in a quarter inch peace of puck board and left room for two other gauges since I only want the boost gauge on the A pillar. At 1500 rpm the gauge shows 37 psi and no more than 80 psi at 6000 rpm. The next day I sold my Talon to guy who allready owns 2 and does not know how to work on a vehicle I think the statement RIP may be a little harsh but I fear the worst.
