APS inlet is in! w00t.



I would like to say it was easy, but it was still a pain in the *****. We were able to get it in without taking the manifold off. Pulled to power steering pump and alternator, and in it went with some finessing. After wresting with the BPV hose, we had to get creative with the vacuum lines (hence the line that comes up and over the manifold near the TB), but eventually got all in. No real change over the Perrin inlet, but.. there it is.

Could not have done it without her. She keeps me sane:

Should have stuck with the Perrin inlet. I really don't like the hard inlets now that the current Perrins don't collapse.

Easy enough to switch them out. The Perrin inlet may go back in because of the spaghetti job I had to do with vacuum lines. LOL

Yep and I really hate the transition at the turbo snout with the hard inlets. They up taking a pretty sharp turn there which is smoother with a full silicon inlet.

Added K&N intake, Grimmspeed ported exhaust manifolds and hi-flow crosspipe, and headed over to FW.



From the tune and mild upgrades, we got a peak 308 whp and 320 wtq (+12 whp and +26 wtq from the previous tune plus K&N intake, Grimmspeed ported exhaust manifold and crosspipe).



Many thanks to Travis and Snail Performance, and to the guys at FW Motorsports.

UPDATE 2/24/2014

Punchline: Nothing lasts forever.

I had a new 2.5 short block built and installed by FW Motorsports. Upgraded to an 11mm oil pump and switched over to Wiseco pistons, but largely similar components.. not necessarily the very ones used before, but similar.

Got it back a couple weeks and have put about 650 miles on it with zero oil burned. Got the all clear and it was time to strap it to the dyno. Got some plus-key loving from Travis today. Playing with the boost controller had it up to over 330 whp and 375 ft-lbs peaking at 20 psi before the stock BPV started screaming "Uncle" so we brought it down to 18.1 psi and it made 307 whp and 350 ft-lbs. Gained 20 ft-lbs of torque bumping the boost about 0.5 psi but smoothed out some roughness after the build. Car feels phenomenal.



Dat torque spike doe-- 110 ft-lbs in about 500rpm!

Next steps:
- Grimmspeed 3-port EBCS (been sitting on the work bench since Thanksgiving)
- Turbosmart dual port BPV/BOV
- ported and polished throttle body, intake manifold and TGV deletes (been sitting under the work bench since before Thanksgiving)
- new wheels and tires so I can give Aaron his $3000 hose reels back
- and EVENTUALLY a 6-speed swap
