Re: Install Day 14 (Pg 19) Hood is Cut - Speedfoos' Turbo Install

Just the stock disc with an ACT pressure plate. It engages really nicely. I’ve been running that setup for a while. Cheap and good haha. Puck clutches suck for street driven cars…

It's not too bad because it's sprung. Unsprung clutches are a bitch.

Re: Install Day 14 (Pg 19) Hood is Cut - Speedfoos' Turbo Install

LOL - Jesus FoSho, all that for beatin' up on a POS Camaro! Note to self, "Quit missing 3rd....."

I used exhaust assembly paste on everything, so hopefully I stand less chance of things working themselves loose.

Good info on the clutch setups. I know I'll be replacing this Exedy I put in at some point next year, so I'll tuck both pieces of info into a drawer in the back of my brain.

Re: Install Day 14.5 (Pg 21) Did Stuff - Speedfoos' Turbo Install

Well Drew, I did install a stage 4 CC clutch, 4 puck and yes it was sprung..........My tranny shelled in a week of install!! I will never put such an extreme clutch in! I can't wait to tear this tranny down and see what it did..I'll post so more can learn from my expensive mistakes!!!

Time to go tear down my turbo....I am praying I don't have to move my radiator or condensor again.....I hope she comes out with no problems ( yea right!!!)

Thanks Carl!

Good luck jerking the snail without moving any of that stuff, FoSho. I know I can't. Well, the condenser doesn't move since it's in a box in my shed, but there are reasons for that...

Re: Install Day 14.5 (Pg 21) Did Stuff - Speedfoos' Turbo Install

Haha, no luck.......first problem is the shop I took it to get tuned at welded me a dump tube for my wastegate. Well one of the friggin bolts they used looks like an interverted torx bit with rounded edges? WTF i can't get it off!!! Not even with torx sockets??? Also, they must have welded it on the car. I'm gonna have to cut it off and then reweld. These is no way it's coming out. Not to mention it rubs my downpipe & frame on decel because of the limited room in your bays.

So to make a long story short I need a lift and i need to completely redo the install. No way am I gonna get to it....

So I offically have the worst luck in the world!!!!! Yeah!!!! I don't have the time to do it right now so I guess I'll just drive for awhile with an exhaust leak.....My throttle reponse is alittle iffy but she still boosts to 7 psi!!! mwuahahahhah!!

Kill list so far.....
(2) z28 camaro's with bolt on (5.7liters)
(2) Lancer Evo's, one with mods was neck and neck....I completely destroyed the 2nd one(he can't drive)
(1) 5.7 firebird...not the corvette motor
(1) Turbo Sohc D16 civic hatch
(2) 2006 Ford Mustand GT (one had intake and catback)

So in the short amount of time I had the kit on I have racked up a pretty nice kill list.....so It's worth it!!! Seein the look on there face as I chuck the duces out the window and wave as I scream by em. Then they ask what I got and my reponse is "SOHC 1.7L" seeing there draws drop is all worth it!!!

Re: Install Day 14.5 (Pg 21) Did Stuff - Speedfoos' Turbo Install

Dude don't cut the bolt off, those are star sockets like they use on rod bolts, flywheels, etc.... Just pick up a set of these:



Does the WG dumptube rub on the subframe or the radiator crossmember? If it's the crossmember, just grind and bend that bitch out of the way. Basically anything you can to avoid having to reweld your DP and DT.

Those kills were all on the track right?

Edwin, I'm gonna be real pissed if your welder gets your downpipe done before mine gets my pre-cat pipe done. Where'd you order the t-clamps from. I got mine from siliconeintakes.com (same place I got the fans and other stuff) and they got here in like a week. Did yours get lost in the USPS ether? Time to find an extra VC to get PC'd!

Re: Install Day 14.5 (Pg 21) Did Stuff - Speedfoos' Turbo Install

Foos, Yea man I got those sockets........i have a full set of Snap-On Tools (School does pay off 50% discount!!) They have more teeth!! I'm just gonna cut it and put a regular bolt in.....

Oh and does anyone have any pictures or advice on the bottom radiator hose? I'm gonna fix that while I have my entire front end torn down next weekend (3 day weekend!) Foos, post some pics if that elbow works! I think I just might take the hose off, go down to the parts store, and get a tad longer hose.

P.S. Foos, none of those were on the track

Re: Install Day 14.5 (Pg 21) Did Stuff - Speedfoos' Turbo Install

Thats what I said. I was off the wall.....the first one had intake,exhaust, & boost controller (not sure what he was running on street.) From a dig he had me by a car until 2nd we were toe to toe until 3rd then we had to shut down. 2nd time on a roll @ 40mph into 2nd I pulled half a car, into 3rd he came back up neck & neck. We never were able to get into top end. I know the guy, he admitted he was trying. He was shocked, so was I! Here's a vid of him running a 13.8 against my buddies b16a built turbo civic....my girlfriend is annoucing the times since my camera can't get the E/T's.... & yes that is a full ITR suspension & wheels!!! Drool on!!!


http://videos.streetfire.net/video/7...7b017d4a9a.htm


The 2nd evo I'm guessing just couldn't drive. Never seen this dude. Drop into 2nd and I pulled a car immediately and he never could catch me up into 4th. Even from a dig I launched hard and pulled a car again immediately and I kept a car all the way into 3rd. Shocked I was again! He promptly flipped me the bird and turned

See, this is why I wish my camera was working. I knew no one way gonna believe me!!! I don't believe it myself.


Oh back on subject.....anyone know what size our radiator hoses are off the top of there head? My car is at the shop I can't just go measure. I was looking at the Mr. gasket universal radiator hose kit on jegs. I just don't
know what size we got. I believe Speedfoos posted a picture of a similiar product

Re: Install Day 14.5 (Pg 21) Did Stuff - Speedfoos' Turbo Install

Our radiator hoses are 1-1/8" ID.

I didn't have any blue paint in the garage when I refinished this one. I had thought about blue on black, but finding the right shade to match the anodized stuff would have been a pain. My vac lines being off that little bit on the color bothers me enough.

The turbo is in. I just don't have a belt to keep the car running! Hopefully its waiting for me at the Post Office today!

****ing sod that! poor customer service seems to be the trend these days with all the giant retailers they could care less about your business because they have a thousand others lined up. Thats why its nice to support small business they take the time to care about there customers.

Although I gotta say that it adds to the drama, this thread would be boring if all you did was slap a pre-fabed kit on and turned the key.

Re: Install Day 14.5 (Pg 21) Did Stuff - Speedfoos' Turbo Install

The drama?! Yeah, you've got that right. The ****ing car will be labeled as a classic by the time I'm able to turn it over. I wish I could support a small business from over here. God knows I've spent enough to fund the start-up cost for one!

Jon, are you gonna sell me those headlights when you're done with them? I'll trade you 6 ***** of pocket lint, a stock D17 radiator and cap, some blown D17 coil packs, and 2 stock injectors if you're interested. If you want the JB weld that's on the radiator, you're going to have send some cash my way. That's extra.

LOL DSeven - no offense but you got what you deserved on the ticket man! Don't street race and if you do, just smile and take your licks from the cops when they hand you a ticket.

We'll see what kind of update I can do tonight. I'm going to eat and then go load the map to the PCS.

Looking at that last picture makes me realize my oil pressure gauge is a little crooked. Will have to turn that tomorrow. And after reading up on catch cans (thanks again gearbox!), I will be moving mine tomorrow night.

Aside from that damn elbow, belt, and exhaust - it's ready!

I'm just gonna pop in here and say that I'm still enjoying reading this thread. It's cool that you've been wrenching as much as possible to get it done. Keep up the good work.

Re: Install Day 14.75 (Pg 22) Basemap Uploaded - Speedfoos' Turbo Install

Had to pick up a buddy from the airport today, so I had some thinkin' time in the car.....

I'll be looking to make sure which pin on my SRT-4 injectors line up with the correct wiring on the D17 and dropping those in probably tomorrow night. I understand enough of the PCS that I should be able to adjust the map so it will idle (map was made for RSX-S injectors), and also be stable enough to start tuning it. This way I can jerk out that .25 BAR WG spring and put my .5 BAR spring back in so I can actually enjoy the turbo at 8 psi instead of 4 psi. Since the base map is set to run rich, I'm not worried about leaning out while we get it tuned.

If anyone knows which wire goes to which pin on the SRT-4s, by all means post it. I'm about to go coach soccer, then I have a brake job, so I won't be able to search (like a raving noob!) until later. A little 60 grit sandpaper and my stock clips fit the SRT-4s like a champ!
