Another year tops lol
another wonderful day in competition!
Sweet magnets bro! Just in time for the last event. Another trophy. 4th in the championship runoff too for autoxer of the year. Not bad.
Now on snows and I found this perforation on the pass side door. Damn.
Anything specific you can tell that caused that?
Crappy paint and water.
Yup. I will be seeing them soon
The rest of the car is sound. Except for rock chips.
Did you go see them about that rust?
I'm curious as to how they try to get out of the warranty. I would assume they will say this is surface rust and not "perforation".
nothing has happened yet. i went for an oil change and they are evaluating or forgot to look at it. i had to get a new battery on thursday as well, it was cheapest there. broke the battery mount bolts so ordered a new battery tray...
Replaced the battery tray and catch can lines today. Had more photos to upload but they are not displaying correctly.
More maintenance... replaced fog light bulb and cabin filter. Cleaned the DS brake pad ears they were making the brakes squeak relentlessly. Changed plugs 49k. Look good!
I also had to shim my coolant bottle today. The old line I extended down under the car rotted out. Replaced it with a much bigger line that is more resistant, leftover from the catch can install. This is to keep coolant from dumping into the fender well which is what the factory line did since it was only 2 inches long. hard right turns would force drips of coolant into the hose and into the fender well. This does a much better job of not letting anything escape.
By the way if you need catch can line NAPA has the best stuff on a roll and it’s a lot cheaper than fuel line hose in other parts stores.
Great event. Worked for it today!
Ok- so the forums suck at this, saying "go Google." Does the turbo manifold and turbo bolt onto the non-turbo GDI 1.6 engine? Same port and bolt pattern?
yes it does. the manifold and exhaust side of the turbo are one unit.
