    Spent some quality time... Was freaked when I realized after set (siliconed) cover in place... Wtf is wrong with this picture?? Then F.. K
    I forgot to torque the intake cam/VVT bolt!!!
    In the end was fortunate that pulled off cover wet silicone was still just fine..

    I now feel the pain....Anyone who's clocked their turbo... GD this is not loosened bolts turn wherever and done... Decided that covering the valve cover with hot side pipe wasn't pretty...
    I would hate to do within engine compartment. PXL_20211024_235327284.jpg PXL_20211024_235344127.jpg

    Thought today was a easy install of fmic, as usual though.....while vender said just tug hard on PS cooling lines and install cooler in front of IC....right, not doing that so of course hoses disconnected and will properly bend metal hose angles to fit rubber hoses with no weird tension. Looking at the mount brackets vender supplies for IC... That needs to be done properly too... A future job. PXL_20211031_205608740.jpg

    Well now happy with results. I wish I could weld a lot better than my abilities.. of course the length of beads put down by me is less than my height. One of those.....I need to practice tasks of my bucket list. PXL_20211104_223234314.jpg PXL_20211104_222801779.jpg

    After plumbing in place. Where will OCC go? Left side is Corksport fuel tank. So a idea happened while I stared at this PS hose bracket for short metal pipe between tank and cooler...... will see if works out after road tests.

    Technically my sons, if he restarts paying..
    08 85k speed 3 owned since new, dealer never serviced or needed. Redline only oil changes since break in. Valves at manufacturer max side of clearance, not over. Was a shock to take off tmic shroud, never seen underneath. Not used to seeing no abused connectors, wiring, zip ties, broken plastic bits. (Now have though)
    Leak down @ 100 psi 1&4= 2%, 2&3= 1%.

    VVT, valve timing path replacement. VVT was just starting to get play, no missing metal bits.
    I'm freaking shocked. PXL_20220516_224011406.jpg PXL_20220516_223952951.jpg
