    I made a very simple solution to filling the tank after evap delete... it's pretty self explanatory:

    The 60mm throttle body arrived today. I put a fresh coat of paint on it. All I have to do now is bore the plenum mouth and we are good to go!

    I'm having an interesting time trying to port the IM. I keep breaking bits, and dang it makes a big mess on the floor. Last night I got it maybe 1/3 of the way ported. I plan to finish it as soon as I get home today. But I will need to stop by the tool store to get a much more aggressive bit. And then I have to figure out what to use for bolt to hold on the TB. The stock bolts are way too long, and if I use spacers they will interfere with the intake piping. I tried a stubby bolt but the head sits so close to the TB that I can't even get a wrench on it... Updates coming soon

    I will do that this evening. I tried getting someone else to take a video of it, but they didn't do such a great job LOL. It's only slightly louder than stock. It just has more of a growl to it. It's not really poppy like the ricer crap.

    I bought one that was already modified. All I have to do is the porting of the IM and the installing. Thank you for the links though.

    I saw it was already modified. You still need to plug the port on the manifold. Just wanted to make sure you were aware of that.

    I got everything all buttoned up now.
    And of course there is a slight vacuum leak from there. I think some JB Weld should help to hold the plug in and seal it up.

    I had to build a custom cold air intake because the stock piping would not fit on the larger throttle body. And of course, I had to put a micro filter for the VC breather. I finished up the porting on the IM and got everything installed. Here's some pics

    I couldn't get that stupid rubber cap to stop leaking vacuum. So I decided to spend a little money and tap the hole out to a 3/8 and put a pipe plug in it. It doesn't leak anymore!

    That's pretty much what I did to. How does she run now?

    For some reason there is still idle surging. It surges between 1100 and 1500. I put a new tps on it and it didn't help. I adjusted the IAC to idle down and it helped a little but it still wants to surge. I'm not really sure what's going on.

    Does it surge when sitting still? The ECU does idle the car up while it's coasting, but when it's stopped it should bring it back down to about 800rpm.

    I tried unplugging the IAC and running the car. It doesn't surge anymore. So I was thinking I could just drive without the IAC? I haven't tried yet, I've only idled without it...

    I'm trying to decide on my next few mods... CF shift knob to top off the Megan Racing short shifter? High flow cat? CF deck lid? CF hood? Maybe rebuild with some high compression pistons? So many options and so much time, but not so much money LOL

    I am respraying the calipers and the valve cover, and using clear coat this time since I didn't last time and it's peeling. Also getting a new valve cover gasket, as I noticed a small leakdown AGAIN... I guess I should follow the process this time.

    Also thinking of getting the AC lines vacuumed so that I can do a full delete. I think that should really clean up the engine bay and free up some weight/power.

    Brembo brake kit, Fel-pro VC gaskets and grommets, and some rustoleum paint. Im going to paint the VC, then once cured I will sand the letters to bare metal, then clear coat it. It should look pretty good. I bought spray cans so I can also do the calipers. I don't feel its necessary to prep the spray gun.

    Probably on Monday, once I finish up all the work on the car, I'm going hunting downtown for a good photoshoot location. Or multiple locations. We'll see how it goes. I was noticing that all of my new pictures were taken at my house or in the garage LOL. I'll be looking for places with graffiti, bridges, open lots, etc etc. I might spend the whole day just hunting for good food and good pictures. Maybe I can spot another DSM to take pics with too... ;)

    Calipers are done and drying for clear. Valve cover is drying so I can polish the letters, then clear it too.

    Things would be much much easier if I had a sandblaster, but for now I'm stuck with my wire wheels and sandpaper LOL.
