comparison with volvo 16t [pic5]
did a pressure test [pic1] [pic2]
and found a huge leak at the rear oring and throttle body gasket. will be ordering those shortly. most of the piping is off, radiator is out, and ran out of time to sleep for work next day [today]. lots of pb blaster used.
gonna be replacing the main radiator fan with a a/c one that i still have from my parts car and wiring them both to come on together.
as the engine bay sits now [pic]
also bought a xtd stage 4 pressure plate that im going to be trying out after doing some research. im thinking of getting the turbos in and everything running properly first before tearing it back down for the clutch job to eliminate multiple sources of problems. also ordered a gto mr throttle cable to replace my ghetto modded cc delete one.
