    Thanks man. I appreciate it a lot. I'll take you up on that offer! My turbo does not have the t51r mod. I considered it, but couldn't stomach the extra money or thought of that constant whine for a daily. The s257sxe is definitely quieter than my s4v1 was. I could hear that turbo in low load most of the time. Then again, I wasn't running EWG back then. Once the hypergate opens up and screams, you can't really hear much of anything else haha

    I have never experienced an ewg even in someone else's car but wish I could get the chance to. I honestly love hearing my turbo really well but also think it would be crazy to put an ewg dump peeking out my hood to see fireworks at night lol

    Pulled the motor today. It went really good. Tomorrow I'll be stripping it down and prepping for shipment on Tuesday. During the removal, we did not find anything abnormal or failures with any parts installed (i.e, fuel system, exhaust, and intake sides)[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Seperated the transmission from the engine and got it ready to be shipped back to New Orleans. Jordan is paying for it to be shipped this Tuesday.

    However, I did discover the rear main seal to be leaking just as I thought. I have been complaining about an oil leak since day 1 to him. He claimed it to be the oil pan, so I gave him the opportunity to fix it. I ended up driving to his home here in Southern California so he could reseal it.

    The oil pan still leaked and he claimed he would try again at my next oil change. Well, I never quite made it to that point, with cylinders 2 and 3 now gone.

    Brand new ACT clutch has definitely been wet this whole time, but not slipping. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
