We started and finished Josh's (skatejosh369) turbo installation. today. Big thanks to Paul (aka bomerman) for driving down to my place from Virginia to help us the first two days. When we could get him to stop talking, he did some really good work!

Time spent:

Friday - 7 hours
Saturday - 15 hours
Sunday - 6 hours

So yeah, 28 hours of tool time to knock this installation out. During this time we made the downpipe, dumptube, re-did the exhaust, re-did the charge piping, bumper defabrication, we didn't have 2.5" exhaust flange so we made one out of some spare 1/4" steel plate I had in the garage, installed the gauges, AEM F/IC and a quick street tune (thanks again for the basemap Jonathan!) and everything else involved with the a turbo installation.

Things did not go smoothly, however we came out on top. As a note for folks, stock Honda clips do NOT/NOT work with SRT-based injectors. The clips physically fit over the injectors but they do no make contact with the injector pins. We discovered that today when we attempted the first start-up. Had everything but fuel. Sunday in North Carolina is not a good time to source SRT injector clips so some speaker wire and spade terminals will work until Josh picks some up next week.

Don't laugh, it works and they aren't coming out unless you want them to.






Josh wanted stealth and he got it. After cutting the bumper inside to fit the non-dezod (thank God) intercooler, Paul put the fascia back in. Josh just needs to glue the fog lense back over the hole and it's completely stealth.






But it's installed and aside from a couple minor tweaks, the car runs pretty damn good at 4 PSI. This is on a stock LX motor, AEM F/IC, no head studs (yet), with Stage 0 SRT injectors. More to come from Josh.......

Money shots. Anything look familiar?

LOL - the wiring is like that since it's temporary. If I had cleaned it up nice and pretty, it would be too tempting to just leave it like that! Everything else is nice and clean. F/IC is tucked and hidden, gauges routed w/o a stupid pillar pod, etc. etc.

Josh and his friend Cody are on the list of folks who are welcome at my house anytime they like. Good folks.

Gauges - two are in a the frogeye/mickey pod and then we took Dan's idea and mounted the third down in the center console. I just used a hole saw and cut a gauge-sized hole where the far left button-type plug thingee is on the opposite side from the power outlet.
