    It threw a cel when I was putting a load on it going up hill. I think i was hitting boost cut. But thats the only time ive gotten a cel. It immediately went away though.

    I should have it back on the road Friday. So we will see what happens then.

    And I'm going back to the dyno next week. I've got all the parts i need now

    Ok so I replaced the oil feedline. No more oil leaks now.

    But. Now I have an issue with my manifold.

    The piece of metal thats welded to the turbo manifold from the wastegate flange, it broke at the weld. So I have to get that welded tomorrow.

    I can't believe the issues this car has. Its crazy

    im taking a wild stab and I hope im wrong but my guesstimate is that he A owes the dude at the shop a fat wad of cash after it was all said and done B the bottom end probablyyyy toast very shortly after having a turbo strapped to it if the oil line blowing off didnt ruin the turbo , prob threw hands up and said fack it another-one-bites-the-dust-another-one-gone-and-another-one-gone-another-one-bites-the-dust.jpg

    Damn guys yall have me almost half dead lol.

    Yes I am alive lol.

    Just been working paying off some bills.

    But here's an update.

    So I just dropped that car back off at Dustins.

    And I have to say I will never ever ever buy another oil feed line kit from ebay.

    BUYER BEWARE!!!

    On my way to Dustins shop the fucking line BROKE AGAIN!

    And this time the fucking heater wrap on the manifold caught fire.

    I had to pull over on the highway and put it out. Man I was lucky I was able to put it out before everything important caught flames.

    Wish I had pictures or video but I was too worried about my car burning to the ground lol.

    But anyway car is back at Dustins. He's fixing the welds on the manifold, replacing a door handle, degreeing my cam gears, and this time he is ordering a high quality oil feedline kit. No more BS oil lines.

    He is also putting my front and rear camber kits on so I can get the car aligned.

    He's replacing my dizzy with the oem honda 1 I bought.

    And fixing some wiring issues with my night time running lights.

    He should be done in about a week or 2 and then we taking it back to the dyno and this time we ganna tune for power.

    My goal is 380whp but if we make it anywhere between 350-400whp I will be happy.
