    My next two weekends are packed busy, so I can't make it yet, but I did finally get the hybrid 14b installed and the coolants leaks tightened.

    awesome I have wanted to go there actually, im gonna leave my place in a few and be there in like 15min

    Fun meet guys, sadly my car still seems to be leaking quite a bit. Good news is that I think that noise I have been hearing are my PS and ALT belts vibrating/bouncing up and down when I rev it. How do you guys tension your belts to make sure they are tight but not too tight?

    How do you measure that? A ruler? I would use a belt deflection tool, but they are like $300!

    Well I tightened them up and noise went away. So happy it wasnt the tensioner pulleys, but I am still going to swap them out with new OEM ones in the near future just for safety sake. Maybe put an OEM Mitsu Kevlar T-Belt on too :)

    I am up for another meet, hopefully I get my parts in before then so then I can stop my damn oil return line leak.

    Ordered:
    OEM 2g Oil Return Line
    OEM Fuel Injector Insulators
    OEM Shifter Cap Bushing
    OEM Shifter Bushing
    OEM Throttle Body Gaskets
    OEM 6mm 10mm Crush Washers
    OEM Oil Return Gaskets
    OEM J Pipe Gasket
    OEM Bellhousing to Block Dowel

    Can't wait :D

    Plus I tightened up my coupler clamps and my J-pipe and my turbo seems to spool a lot quicker. :) Only weird thing is that when I am cruising my AFRs want to hover 14.8-16.5, and I cant figure out why.

    ^Sounds to me like you had a pretty significant boost leak and now that you have it under control your car is getting added air it wasn't getting before causing it to lean out, just a thought. Lets get some ideas rolling around about a place to meet if the weather is bad, that way we aren't last minute deciding!

    Ya, it was probably because you fixed your boost leaks. The extra air entering the a/f mix is causing a lean condition. When you have boost leaks you run rich.

    I'am stumped on what parking structure to go to. The only one i have in mind is the Lloyd center one, but its a bit ghetto and way to patrolled. You have any ideas?

    The parking structure at Clackamas Town Center is ok... we can't get to the top but we could still hang on one of the lower floors. I know its a bit further for the Vancouver guys but its a straight shot down I205

    The Clackamas Town Center is the one I was thinking of as well.

    On the note of the lean bit, its strange because it just seems like I have a "lean spot", and of course mashing my foot to WOT forces Open Loop and that then moves to my Evo 3 timing map which makes my car go like a bat out of hell :p I am going to tweak some settings in ECMLink and see what I can figure out. This thing takes 2nd gear WOT pulls to 7500 with no questions asked. I gotta say, aside from the leaky oil return line, I did a damn good job with this rebuild :D

    Thats awesome man, im glad she is pulling so well! As for the dead spot, maybe you can get away with just richening up that spot? Also you are running the 3 inch gm maf right? Isnt it common to have similar issues with those and they just require extra care in those areas? I thought I read something like that about them. If you do find that could be the case you could always go sd for rather cheap!

    On the note of clackamas town center, I think it could our best option. As long as we are respectful i dont think we will be bothered. I see scoobies do meets there occasionally as well.
