thanks Paul / Jesper

the turbo bracket is beeeefaaaaay and stainless... took a knackering in the vice with a sledge to convince it to twist to fine tune the fitment, not easy

MartiniRon's a fabricator @ Pratt & Whitney, known him since I was 13 - handy as heck and and all around great friend

Jim... problem before was I don't run an OE airbox and the breathers vented to a mesh filter held just above the height of the hose, which weaped and dripped and coated my entire fookin back/top of my motor in gooey bongresin. Which is the OE one? The plastic canister to the right in my pic above? That's staying.

Sourced a reducer yesterday, droppin The Boy off @ Boy Scout camp for the week - will get home and get back to it.

Tried in vein Fri night to reassemble the ebrakes so I could fit the rotors / studs / wheels... I suk apparently, couldn't get the last spring hooked by myself so need to await 2nd set of (more talented) hands aka AlfaJohn.

Then hopefully pin the MSD in and twist the key - and hope for the best. I'm nervous...

Hey Paul,

Dumb question - but what exactly is your visitor? I was showing my wife and we both curiously cannot place what he is? Very cool looking little creature!

Hope all is well senor!

Chris.

the Luna's are said to be rare, yet we've had one visitor in the garage like that for each of the past 3 years - weird

anywho

what to use for a scavenge tank gasket to the bottom of my Garrett hybrid turbo? Just learned the OE gaskets no fitty on the bottom (top's fine - 'cept... that hard oil line needs to poke thru the tin... argh... more tedious little things left to do

least I found 5 of my missing 6 spacer lugs... bubble wrapped rear bumper under the car had eaten 'em... 8-)

sooooooo...

I'd started off on this endeavor sometime during late Jan or early Feb this year. Began so innocently with the desire to sell my Fuchs to obtain some Fikse's due to my spinning my 265's and them no longer being available.

That progressed into trading a member here my OE front valance for an AIR DP-style unit.

and then somehow, ohso innocently enough... things got vertical slippery. Whoops.

I'm enroute to retrieve my POS from it's corner balance and alignment in a bit, and am nearly (nearly!) ready to depart next Thursday for turboPALOOZA. Phew. Been a looooooooooong harrrrrrrrd road, most certainly.

A road I'd never have gone down, and definitely never have completed... without the selfless generous consistent help from sooooooooo mannnnnnnny of youses here (and locally!). I'd name names but fear I'd miss someone (Imadumbass), but you know who you are!!! (Jacob gets special mention here for 2x trips to NE CT from Jersey City, as does AlfaJohn... who's now also 911SCJohn, btw, FTMFW!.. for muuuuuch local help!)

encountered a number of kicks to the nutes along the way, and overcame, conquered, persevered - again 100% due to friends intervention (likely due to feeling sorry for my uber patheticismnessitude!!!)

a recap of what took - oh - nearly 7mos?:

- 18x9/11 Fikse Profil 5 polished lips / black anodized spokes running 255/295 Potenza RE760s
- H1s relayed to run 100w/130w
- A.I.R. front valance
- Setrab 172 front mount oil cooler with custom OEish rubber lines & zinc fittings made by Len Cummings here
- side-indicator air scoop for fender mount oil cooler and new cooler seal
- dual Bosch 044 fuel pumps, with new tank feed line
- MSD 6AL-2 programmable ignition and blaster coil / coil wire
- rebel racing rear coilover Bilstein Sports / 500# springs, no torsions
- Neatrix spring plate bushings
- SC cams
- Jerry Woods Racing Garrett / ITS 0.82 trim... with oil line restrictor (!!! !!! !!!)
- Smart Racing front brake ducts and blockoff plates / Pegasus silicone hoses
- DZug strut bar
- Porterfield R4S front carbon/Kevlar pads & ATE Super Blue bleed
- Swepco 201 trans fluid flush
- scavenge pump / cam tower / chainbox / valve cover / breather / trans output shaft seals
- breather catch can w/ petcock drain
- V-band muffler clamp
- engine bay tin seal
- fan belt
- breather hose
- distributor vacuum hose
- new WBO2 sensor (failed to solve erratic AFR readings, as did the fuel pumps, dammit)
- painted front valance / bumper / mirrors / rear bumper / valance / headlight rings (3x!... Indishrot is not Guards!)... welded up DoubleD overrider holes and screwed in rub strip ends


remaining to do before departure:

- replacement hi/lo beam signal stalk
- weld shifter coupler once and for all

Stats from the cb/align:

Camber LF -.5 degrees RF -.5 degrees
Front Caster 6.0 degrees
Front toe +.04 degrees
Camber LR -1.9 RR -1.9
LR Toe +.25 degrees RR toe +.25 degrees

Ride height to fender with 170 Lb driver and no ARB connected
LF 25 3/4 RF 25 5/8
LR 25 1/2 RR 25 5/8

LF 592 RF 552
LR 987 RR 928
Cross weight 50.2%
total: 2,889


came in heavier than I expected considering my last cb/align there (5/28/09, also just prior to a turboPALOOZA coincidentally) I was 2,747 and F 485/460 R 913/889

Granted... my 18" Fikse's and tires add some decent weight, as does the FMOC and lines and DZug strut bar, and I probably have maybe 2 more gallons of fuel in it this time... but 142lbs??? I think I mighta not had tool kit / spare tire in last time too, hmmm. Oh well. Least the ~+100hp will overcome that nicelike









I'll aim to get it back on the dyno this fall maybe, but my gut guesstimate is I've added maybe 100chp/100ctq... prob now somewhere in the 420chp/460ctq range.

Overall, I'm thrilled w/ the results. Basically, this is (mostly) everything I always wanted my 930 to be for the past 7yrs... nearly all at once (sorta - already had BLWUR / Garretson IC / Powerhaus headers / Rarly Hooligan dual-out / intake / EBC / 934 boost gauge / Prototipo w/ hub extender).

Lessons learned:

7yrs of surfing here very much had me prepared for most of what I'd did. Scope creep however creates unpreparedness and scramble.

This much work takes a metric ASSLOAD of time, commitment, effort, patience, knuckle skin, and perseverance... which also assumes there is family / work understanding of such (multiple multiple multiple 2:30a.m. nights take their toll trying to remain productive in 'real life').

Sure... I coulda paid for someone to do all this work - but I've always considered a motor drop to be a 930 owner's RITE OF PASSAGE ("only" took me 7yrs to muster the stones to do!), and I learned a BUNCH about my car, myself, and did a number of things on it I've always wanted to learn how to do. Pretty cool, and EXTREMELY gratifying!

now, let's just hope it holds up

again... thanks MUCH to all you here and my local friends!!!

That's all you did? That's like 2 days of work for most Pelicans!

J/k of course. That is a ridiculous amount of work and serious props for doing it yourself.

Car looks amazing! I wish I could make it up to turbopalooza to see it run, but I already had plans that weekend.

Good luck with the final punchlist to get it ready!

Congratulations bud! I am happy to see you got it all buttoned up and donezo.

Let us know your impressions of the new turbo when you get a chance to push it!

Chris.

Good work! I've been tuning in nightly to see the Paul v. Kozmo showdown, it certainly was addictive and a bit entertaining. Now to send positive vibes to Kozmo to get his car sorted!

Congrats!!!!!

Is everything (i.e. turbo & lag, lights, wheels/tires, oil cooling, valance, monoballs, coils, height...) holding up OK? Not too many extra parts at the end... :-)

thanks much guys for all the kind words and compliments!

Funny, Jeff... that is EXACTLY how I always feel around here (more or less)... you folks all make all this seem so easy - but then I remind myself that many of those Superheroes are SINGLE / NO KIDS, and probably not their Town Councilman 8-)

now, I wouldn't exactly say that I "did it myself"!!!

I mean

yeah sure

I planned it all out and turned many/most of the wrenches

but geeze did I have HELP!!!

things like... Jake timed the cams and adjusted the valves while I handed him tools and compliments 8-), and John soldered up my cut mirror wires (twice - don't ask!)

I figured out my WG plumbing when I picked it up last night so I could WOT it on the way home and finally see what I got.

Quick impressions are that the car pulls low, hard, and long... like a good woman! The turbo whistle is FANTABULAR, my neighbor following me home said he could hear it 1/4mi or more back. PERFECT. Almost ballbearing'ish... love it.

My !@#$%^&* VEMS AFR gauge is still f'n wonky. GDammit does that piss me off. Least at this point I know it has to be the gauge, as I'm on my 3rd WB sensor and now have 2 new pumps. I've got an email in to my bud that runs EFI Express to see if he'll swap it out (which sucks humongously hairy friggin nads as it was a total HOOR to pressure fit into the center console where the A/C control switch previously resided... that's gonna be 'fun').

I know I'm not lean as it smells right and sounds right - and zero pops on decel whatsoever. And once in awhile the gauge 'frees up' (it's like it's locked in a grip of some sort that either reads too lean or bottoms out @ 13.5... then suddenly it'll drop down to where it should be under WOT boost, 11.1-12's).

Looks like I'll be using your fender roller afterall, Chris (and finally f'n returning it to you!!! Sorry I've had it sooooo looooong!). My 255's have the sliiiiiiiiiightest bit of rub @ the front outer edge of the fender and valance area... either that or back down a mm or 2 on the front spacers?

Will say I'm loving the footprint and the resultant panic braking not locking them fukkers up like they CHRONICALLY did w/ my measly peasly 225's up thar! Plus, they look frikkin TITS! 8-)

It starts right up w/o really even turning over which is great - credit the dual 044's and MSD. Once I garner the motivation, I look forward to locking down my distributor, plumbing the pressure transducer, and mapping the MSD curves... should be sweet!

and the idle is rock steady @ 1100 or so, with a lumpalicious cammy lump that I do so adore

Shot it w/ some quickshine last night - funny part is, the car has been washed exactly 3x now since I got it back last May... May / Aug / Musante washed it yesterday... and hasn't had wax in damn, prolly 5yrs? I think it looks pretty stellar (washing / detailing isn't my strong suit... I prefer to drive it hard and put it away dirty muwhahahaaa):
