started at 9am today (friday) and just finished up at around 7pm. boy did this day goto shit..... the instructions on turbocivic.net were lacking to say the least. it did not tell me how many bolts and what washer/locknut combination to use on the exhaust mainfold to the turbo as well as several other parts in assembling the turbo. the exhaust manifold was a bitch to take off my car. the oil pan, had two hidden nuts that i had to figure out how to take off (unbolt black tranny guard thingy) when i drained my oil pan.....only a quart of oil came out. im two weeks and 400 miles overdue for an oil change. no fucking clue as to why my car eats oil. it runs strong, no smoke coming out of exhaust when i accellerate and what not. im thinking its because i was so hard on my car and i was always in vtec when i was driving it around for the past few months..... this is not a cakewalk. before you install your turbo, make sure you know what the fuck you are getting yourself into.... then to top it off, i had the local muffler guy weld on the bov flange, and he fucked the hole up and made it too small.....so i had to dremel it out. shitty weld job also. Tomorrow entails wiring up the blue box... then i gotta finish assembling the turbo, bolt it on, hook up all pipes (im running no intercooler for a few months, hope ill be o.k.) then extend the o2 sensor, figure out what to do with the other o2 sensor thingy that was originally connected to my cai.....and tap the oil pan and re-intall everything. hopefully by tomorrow afternoon ill be up and running. then its off to the muffler shop on sunday to get a CARSOUND hi flow cat welded on.... fun. fun. fun. i hope my fucking car starts and runs ok when i finally turn the key tomorrow afternooon... please lord.
