  1. Fixed an oil leak, hopefully. Swapped on the winter wheels, which are actually my show wheels but they have the better winter tires on them. Searched for a coolant leak. I thought the new heater core might be leaking, but I pull the covers and ran the engine up to full temp and no leaks there. It might be the lower coolant hose on the turbo, but I didn't feel like crawling under there to investigate. Found out I broke another rear shock mount, same side as the first time. I thought I had a spare but I can't find it, so maybe I already used it. Ordered a new one. There is enough mud on my car from work you would think I was racing rally with it, but no.
  2. You could trim the exhaust housing on the turbo to match it. The spacer does it, but you could do it on the housing itself. I never did it with mine though. Your back pressure is going to be more about the A/R of the exhaust housing on the turbo than the exhaust manifold port.
  3. Finished installing a new header on the Spider. Changed out the starter in the Volvo. Only got 4 years out of the $65 starter off Amazon. New Bosch one installed now.
  4. I would avoid using the adapter if you can as it will put the turbo closer to the firewall. However, it is an easy solution to avoid machining off the raised ring of the exhaust manifold. Most people will machine the sealing ring flat and bolt on the turbo. It isn't going to cause a back pressure issue.
  5. That is most likely an 850 straight flange. It won't fit an S60 turbo because the turbo flange is angled and definitely won't fit an AWD S60; it won't clear the driveline. The upper bung is for a wideband sensor. The two other bugs appear to be in the correct places. The extension in the rear is to fool the rear O2 sensor since this downpipe has removed the catalytic converter.
  6. I agree with Mayor Pete, but most of the US wouldn't go for him.
  7. The majority of the lawsuits will be tossed out immediately. They already separated some of the votes in Pennsylvania and it didn't matter. What could happen are delegates not voting the way the people want. That is another messed up part of the system. What is more troubling is what Trump will do when reality sets in and he actually knows he is out. He has already started firing people again.
  8. There's a name a I haven't heard in a while.
  9. I voted weeks ago, and even then there was actually a line at the ballot drop box at 7am in the morning.
  10. Oil Change. The leaking heater core froze my Zeitronix logger, so working on getting that cleaned up to see if I can make it work again.
  11. Replaced the heater core and adjusted the wiper arms.
  12. Of course not, that would be helpful. The only code I ever get is P0505, but I only get that code with the 4.4 ECU. If I switch back to the 4.3 I don't get that error.
  13. I have this strange misfire when the car is has been sitting for 30 minutes to a few hours after driving. It acts like it is trying to clear out maybe some oil leaking into the cylinders. It isn't rough enough to be a bad coil. It clears up after a minute. However, over night this isn't a problem and seems to fire up and run fine in the morning. So, after work I pulled the coils, checked the plugs and ran a compression check on all cylinders. No issues. 170 psi on all 5. Plugs looked good with normal color; no fouling. Put it all back together, same misfire. So, that means the rings and valve seals are still good, so I am guessing a leaky oil seal in the turbo. Currently running a Garrett GTX2867R turbo, and probably have 100k on it, so it may be likely.
  14. You could also be noticing something that was always there, you are just more attentive to it now. As long as the idle is smooth, you are probably fine.
