  1. Well shes back Big thanks to Nick from DCTB for working on this with me... The housing turned out amazing. Truely beautiful. Cant wait to put this little baby turbo to work! On other fronts progress is slow. Just got back for 8 days in Switzerland. Beautiful country! Weather is just breaking here. Dash is mostly assembled just needs wrapped up and installed. After that the real work comes. Im ready for some wheel spin and torque steer again
  2. Yeah im pretty pumped to see what i can squeeze out of it! Shooting for 21-23 psi...
  3. 540i MAF does happen to be listed in the upgrades list
  4. Yep! Looking to push the 20T to its limits. Will be tuning for 93 and an E85 map... Should make some decent numbers...
  5. Interesting. Well if they are too bad I will go a different route...
  6. Hmm really? I already have them here sitting in the box. Guess I will give them a shot. I saw the Textar pads. Do they have the bite of the HPS?

  8. For sure dude! And you can give me back my spacers and work shirt! Hah!!
  9. Small update. The parts list is expansive. May update with a full list of shit going on the car later if i have time. For now. A couple shots of a few things happening currently. Car is currently mid dash swap. Yay! Not.... Terrible pic my painter sent me of my R bumper i had him repaint along with filling the wiper holes.. These bad boys chilling waiting to go in.. 11/11 20T parts. Currently with Nick Knight getting assembled... Some detail work on stuff noone will see. Its fun tho... Will probably find some more stuff that can be glass blasted and painted as well Brake upgrade has been completely collected. The last piece of the setup is a set of 4 custom dimpled and slotted AR rotors. Which will be paired with Porsche Big Blacks for the front, and R calipers in the bacl, along with HAWK HPS pads... As soon as i get the interior put back together I will start on all the hardware installation. Gonna be a fun late winter early spring project!
  10. Well car is off the road for the winter now Miss it already... Part for the winter upgrades are slowly starting to accumulate! Single Mass Flywheel, Clutchnet Sprung 6-Puck Ceramic Disc, and a Cryo'd R Pressure Plate (Thanks Boxpin) Also picked up a minty set of herringbone dash trim. Only have pics of this piece for now. Cant wait to get this stuff in!! List of parts still needing to be acquired: TD04-HL 20T, GT-500 Injectors, angle flange downpipe, Pair of S60R Rear calipers, Front and rear 330mm slotted rotors, and lots of little stuff Looking forward to the winter project. Will keep the thread updated as things progress...
  11. Its really not a difficult process. I was worried about it too my 1st time... Take it slow and keep it warm. Thats all there is to it...
  12. Yeah I know! Trying to decide what I want to do about that. I'm not huge on the OEM look... Thinking about trying something more aggressive looking but not sure what yet... Has anyone here done projector fogs on an S/V70 before??
  13. Finally took the time to get it all cleaned up again! Been way too long. Another month or so and it will be off the road for "renovations" haha
  14. Coolant tank was yellow and nasty so this was a quick fix... Coolant light will come on if it gets low and i periodically check it just to be safe... I may replace it some day i dunno...
  15. Yeah its has been time for some added meat on the brakes for a bit. Finally just broke down and laid out the cash.. Thanks! Its coming along....
  16. Well this happened.... Sorry for the crumby pics. Big thanks to Gary for letting all this stuff go at such a good price... My car will be much happier when it can brake more efficiently. All that is needed now is: Rotors, Pads, Stainless lines, and a pair of rear R calipers...
  17. Long drive just to pick up wheels... It's no problem man.. In just going to get them media blasted and powder coated this winter...
  18. Lol Yes I do! Trying to make the 17s last the season.. 18s will be refinished and go on in the spring with fresh rubber...
  19. Sitting dirty as ever after some quick trip prep as I'm going out of state for the weekend...
  20. I can attest to the pain in the assery of the double wall rear fender rolling It is quite feasible tho... Heat, time, and Eastwood...
  21. Every time I pop in on this thread it make me want a wagon!! Keep it up Mike...
