<gives March a wedgie and steals his girlfriend>

Not to mention you're buying an Si. Traitor to the d-series man......you'll be lucky if we talk to you anymore after it finally arrives.

No head studs or PS pump today and my exhaust still leaks, but not as bad as before. I just need to adjust the angle a little this weekend. No big deal. Plus I get to play with the welder some more!

I'll be ordering some 3" mandrel bends, flanges, and straight pipe next week to make a new downpipe and dump the kitty cat. I'm comfortable enough with my welding skills to take on that project so it should be fun!

Re: The Speedfoos' Turbo Install and Everything Else Thread!!

Woohoo!!! I got a whopping 22mpg on this last tank!! LOL, boost is fun. I should get a little better once I'm completely tuned up and the HG doesn't leak anymore. Too funny!

Stuff that in your global warming!! My carbon footprint is the size of Montana!

Re: The Speedfoos' Turbo Install and Everything Else Thread!!

Quick synopsis.

PS pulley nut fell off and spangled the spindle. My new (to me) electric PS pump arrived today, but no wiring harness. Was supposed to just have pozzy and neggy, but has some other connections as well. Gonna take some figuring.

Exhaust is welded, but angle is still a little off. More cuttin' and welding this weekend. I can MIG weld now.

HG is officially leaking, but ARP head bolts should be here tomorrow. Extra gaskets are already here. No overheating issues, just a slight, occasional stutter at cold idle, and extra coolant in the overflow rezzy.

Car is D-A-N-G-E-R-O-U-S to drive without PS but still fun as ****! HG doesn't leak much so I'm still driving the **** out of it!

Re: The Speedfoos' Turbo Install and Everything Else Thread!!

drive it till it blows!!! haha, dont do that, but what the hell r u gonna do with that ps pump, i havent been able to figure out what ur gonna do with it, i hope it works tho, why do u say the car is dangerous to drive without ps??? i had an old tercel that didnt have ps at all, and it was fine, just a little hard to paralell... 22mpg??? is that all, or are u actually expecting more like 27 when u get everything sealed up, i love my gas mileage but hate the lack of power, in the end is it all worth it??

Re: The Speedfoos' Turbo Install and Everything Else Thread!!

I have the exact same problem with my head gasket It feels good not be alone. Only thing I can think of is they blew her on the dyno. It's been like this since I got it back from the tuner.

- No overheating, no leaking
- Pushing coolant into reservoir
- Has a slight sputter to idle aswell, only on cold start ups.
- Has that hot coolant smell to her..
- Still drive the **** out of it

Oh ye of little faith, you forget I'm a veritable mechanical genius! I'll make this pump work!

Ricer. Uhuh. Here's a phrase for you, "I was street racing a Nissan in my rockin' stockin', auto tranny, Civic" Please tell me you weren't blaring the Linkin Park/Jay-Z compilation album as well Jose!

You'll be OK if you swap a D17 into your new Si March. Then we'll still be cool.

Re: The Speedfoos' Turbo Install and Everything Else Thread!!

Meh. Head studs didn't arrive today like I though they would. Oh well. Gotta get some stuff done around the house this weekend anyway. I think I'm going to fix the one spangled bolt hole on my PnP head this weekend and then swap it when I do the HG replacement this coming week.

It will be a bitch to tune via email with the Crower S2 turbo cam, PnP head, and SRT-4 injectors, but will be worth it in the end! Plus I'm pretty sure Chris is up to the task!

But more importantly,


It's my 2000th post!!!!! Woohooo!!!!


OK that was fun. Updates maybe tomorrow when I play with my PS pump a little bit.

Re: The Speedfoos' Turbo Install and Everything Else Thread!!

What's all this whining about power steering? My Mom used to drive us 3 kids around in the '62 Chevy Station Wagon with no PS (no radio either). Later when I met my wife she was driving a '66 Rambler with no PS but it had an AM radio (no heat though).

Re: The Speedfoos' Turbo Install and Everything Else Thread!!

Cars that are designed without power steering are easier to drive than cars built with power steering but without the PS pump running. Go out to your civic and turn the key to ON (but dont start the car) and try turning your steering wheel around a few times. Even better coast a PS car down a hill without the engine running and see how tough it is to steer.

Hey foos, I got my hands on a good mono block amp. I will test it and take pics for you later. If it works out I will be sending it your way soon. I am also going to throw a little surprise in the box.

Re: Fixin' the Blown HG (Pg. 59) - The Speedfoos' Turbo Install Thread!!

Damn Clint, I need a DIY on changing the timing belt and water pump and all that crap.

But your head looks good after you have cleaned it up from the post jerking mess.

And don't worry, I wont put any **** in the package. It will be a pleasant surprise if it stays intact during shipping.

Re: Fixin' the Blown HG (Pg. 59) - The Speedfoos' Turbo Install Thread!!

Post up on how you installed those arp head studs foos. I need to know for when I do mine
Did you go with oem or aftermarket for head gasket?

Update on mine is not good....
I tore the kit apart to fix loose downpipe bolts w/ high temp tread lock which just burned off
Had the intercooler piping redone, tires on, alignment....
Car still builds boost but is not driving the best...probably head gasket.
Also, another strange thing has happened with my subframe & downpipe clearance. The gap used to be about an inch or so. Now the gap is 1 cm or so. It rubs the **** outta my frame and is so annoying. The downpipe only bolts on one way, so I don;t know what's going on.
