Ha, I hear ya. I pulled my 1G out today and drove it everywhere, I forgot how much fun it is to drive, even if the exhaust is a little loud for my taste. The Evo motor build starts this week and it will end up being a lot faster than my 1G, but I'm not taking out any creature comforts out of it whatsoever, both are going to be fun drivers. Can't wait for spring.

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

I changed my valve cover venting from 2 Ėan8ís to a catch can with a single little filter. I was filling the catch can up with oil. From empty to overflowing in one pass! I added a HLA, plugged the vents in the valve cover and drilled a new hole in the back of the head for an Ėan16 fitting. The machining pictures are of my new stage 5 MAP head.








I built a new catch can with much more capacity and used 2 K&N 3í filters.

Yea the pictures were taken with my phone, it must be how they were loaded into the Photobucketís phone app. I just hacked android on my HD2 this week, Iím new to the droid world.

The car should be running in two-three weeks, and ready for the track in the beginning of May. This winter has been a busy one.

Yep, still rocking the 91, has almost 250k on the clock. I might upgrade for next winter, the rust is attacking the rear quarter by the gas door. And two of my neighbors have hit it while backing out of their driveway's ...kind of crazy they could not see a bright red car.

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

Makes me sad people have hit it, I don't get how careless and clueless people can be sometimes lol. Yea, lets just back out of our driveway without taking advantage of the mirrors and turning my head to see what is behind me.

Car was damn clean for 250k on the clock minus the rust on the driver side rear quarter panel.

Keep us updated on this blue beast and maybe I'll see you at Cedarvale again!

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

It's done. I drove it about 50 miles this weekend. Everything is great, no issues. Exhaust sounds rowdy,) a lot deeper note. Cannot tell if there is any turbo spool difference. Saw 30 Psi @ 5700, that's where it was set for the first drive.

Can't wait to see the finished product in person. That engine bay looks clean enough to eat off of.

Did you change the tune before you saw 30psi? DId it go lean so you know that wheel is making more power?

Funny, it was all v8 muscle cars and me. The car was well received for being out of place at this event. I ordered my manifold first, thanks for the heads up on its availability! I was on the phone with Magnus when you called in. Oh so close!!

No tune changes, I would need to download the log to see actual IDC since I have up to 15% of compensation of fuel in closed loop feedback, with a target AFR of something like 11.8. So it never went lean.

Re: Mark's 1G Winter Projects

Just took a catch can and engine bay pic.

[IMG][/IMG]

I took the car back out today, turned up the boost to 35psi and got the AFR's dialed in further. I took my wife out for a ride and did a 3-4 gear pull. The car is fing fast, and after I got out of the gas I looked over at her to find that she was crying. She told me that she doesnít want to ride in the car ever again. My bad.
