Most important part of a good project is starting off the day with the right tools:<p><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/photo2.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Here's the stock mani/turbo/DP:<p><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/photo1.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Here's what's replacing it (S60R mani, 16T, OBX 3" DP):<p><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/photo.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Getting the old turbo and manifold off is no easy task. Get ready for stripped nuts, leaning over for hours, and open ended wratcheting wrenches are almost a must (I didn't have them). <p>Finally, after hours and hours and many choice words, she's out:<p><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/photo5.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/photo4.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Here's the difference in DPs:<p><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/photo6.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>New gaskets in place:<p><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/photo7.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>All bolted up:<p><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01468.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01469.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01463.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01465.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>And this is how I drove for a month until I could find a shop that could actually tig weld properly. <p><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01510.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Here it is just idling, gives you an idea or how stupidly loud it was, but as you can see, vacuum was perfect, so I was happy. <p><A HREF="http://s159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/?action=view&current=MOV01470.flv" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/th_MOV01470.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p>And finally, everything finished up:<p><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01553.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01557.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t155/Wagoneer855/DSC01556.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>That's a 3" DP to a 3" magnaflow cat (94009) to a 3" midpipe to a 3" cut-out then reduces back down to the EST cat-back (2.5") just before it goes over the rear suspension. <p>Now, the troubles I went through. As soon as everything was installed I noticed horrible misfiring anywhere near 2/3 throttle. I checked through the entire ignition system and everything was in order. Then I checked the coil and was surprised to find that my MSD blaster coil completely fried my coil wire. After further inspection, I found that it was shorting out on itself on the ground side of the coil. A tiny black spot and a pin-sized hole right next to the conncetion proved this. Since I was at the Carlisle show in PA when I finally found the problem, Nick (NGB on VS) was nice enough to give me a stock coil off of his '98 V70R parts car that he brought with him to get me home for just a few beers. I was also told that my stock red/orange (315cc) injectors could handle this setup. This was not true. When I was running 16psi, it was so lean that the ECU was pulling ALL timing and it was bogging down horribly under any sort of boost. So I got a set of white (350cc) injectors and all the problems went away. Needless to say, I'm getting a wideband ASAP. <p>So, everything is running fantastic now and she pulls like never before. The 16T is such a great match for the higher compression blocks. The Speedtuning stage II 17psi tune has turned out to be a pretty decent tune for this setup (originally for HPT blocks). <p>So enjoy the pictures and look forward to some more videos at the track. Hopefully my rods stay straight <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>
