Yes, stock trans. I have a spare ready to go whenever 4th decides it's ready to change state. Running a Southbend Stage 3 daily clutch w/ a Fidanza lightweight flywheel, I am amazed that this clutch is holding and suspect "how long" is the next logical conclusion.



To be honest, I like this clutch so much that if it won't hold more, I will back it down. I am also hopeful that the carbon fiber driveshaft is helping to reduce shock load and "extend" the life of whatever the weakest link ends up being.

Got tired of the black hood, I emailed PTP to see what their thoughts are on the turbo blanket getting soaked once in a while. I imagine it should be ok until it gets so crispy it comes apart, we'll see what they say.

Everything gets so heatsoaked without the vents, I don't want to cook more coilpacks. Bring it on, rain.

Nice!! Unfortunately for me the shop I brought my car to said that I need a new trans but I honestly think they messed up installing my clutch. Can't wait to get boost going to drive up to meet you bruh.

I would definitely fight them on that... There was nothing wrong with it before, right??? Don't take it lying down

It'll help a little bit not mitigate the issue. They want way too much for shaped aluminum so I'm reluctant to try. I drove today with everything saturated- it all dried off and the texture/pliability of the material was not changed in a way I could detect

First road trip! 315 miles, no stops, lots of hills. Very impressed!

May ask you what catback was there in this picture? Fitment was on point and very 90's jdm vibe

Long time no update! Car is running well. In the process of fitting a resonator onto the Remark x ft86speedfactory catback.

The data was nice from the GM IAT but we're going to put the MAF back on the fix idle stumbling and just get some drivability back. The intercooler performs well enough that there's not really a need for a higher poll rate sensor anymore.

Nick got some shit done while I was at work today!!
Return style fuel setup with a Walbro 450!
Now we don't have to worry about boost leaning out the fuel pressure.

Nick is 99% sure he was able to keep the Venturi functional - I guess we'll find out!

Hey Jovi! I switched back, just way too loud outside the car. Quieter inside, which is odd...
