And Final Day, Day 4:
Went in strong by removing the plastics, removing the coils, plugs, disconnected fuel rail, and removed injectors.
Then Depinned the factory injectors as follows:
Removed blue adapter piece with a jewl set flat head
Pushed down on small plastic clips inside injector clip housing
And Removed both pins by gently pulling on the wire from the top of clip.
Then it got tricky, the 410 injectors that come in the R18 TSi Extreme kit are numbered 1 and 2. I used port 1 as the positive, and two as the negative (Marked by a black stripe on all negative wires). After alot of messing around with possible ways to connect them via trial and error, this is what the pins and clip have to look like in order for you to get the full connection onto the injector.
Push the wires in at the same time, and will hear and feel the small click of the pin being properly seated in the clip.
Then push the white cap into the injector clip.... and push them in all the WAY, or they will not connect to the injector.
Now repeat 3 more times, and this is what it will look like correctly done.
After all the wiring its time to fight the fuel rail on the right side, and the metal locking clips for the injectors... I have no pointers for that part. Its a pain in the rear end but have a magnet handy. I installed the injectors, then the fuel rail (without bolting down yet) then the metal clips, and finally tightened the fuel rail after all said was done.
Then install the valve cover gasket, valve cover, replace spark plugs with (your choice) Denso Iridium 1 Step colder, install coils, and finally fuel rail plastic, and wiring plastics.
After that was done I took the angled brackets they included in the kit and make them flat. Measured the width of the bracket, marked the top of the bumper, and used an angle grinder to take out two chunks for my intercooler. Next I made sure the intercooler was not touching anything and drilled a hole in the bumper, then popped a rivit, and moved on to the next hole. I did that process 8 times because if you mark then drill everything, then pop rivits it will not line up. take your time, make it right, be professional. This is what my end product looked like.
Next I added oil and coolant, connected the battery, flashed my ecu with hondata, and the TSI 410 base map. Then I turned the key on and off 4 times to prime the injectors, and fired the car right up. It high idled then calmed right down. No CEL. I let it run for 2 minuets, then shut it off. Checked oil level, tightened one coolant line, and added a tad more coolant to the system. Started the car right back up and let it run for 10 minuets. Cooked all the preservatives off the turbo (smoked for a little bit) and went of the first ride around the corner and back. Adjusted one vibrating charge pipe, checked fluids, temps, and called it a day. Drove it home with a smile.
I'll be getting my tuning done tomorrow and will be recording the dyno runs. Expect a link to youtube by Wednesday after editing. If anyone has any questions, I know first hand what your problems are going to be, and can answer virtually any question about this installation. They put this install at a level 3, but i would rank it as a 4 on a chart of 5. I am also a helicopter mechanic for the US Army, past 10 years, so I do have mechanical knowledge. I wouldn't suggest anyone without access to a shop to try and install this at home. It was nice having a lift, and closed area. This project took me 4 days, and half a night of wiring of UEGO and TrueBoost gauges. I will not romp on my turbo until its tuned by a professional.
