    No major updates yet.

    @Realgib3 has My turbo for some mock up purposes for a project he's working on.

    I dropped a spare valve cover off to a shop to have a bung welded on for my vta can, and then they'll be dropping off to the powder coater to have it coated.

    Also ordered a power steering reservoir cover and a coil pack cover from adapted performance. Once those get in, they'll be sent off for powder coat as well.

    Aside from that, need to order a fuel pump relay kit and some lines and fittings so I can finally hook up this 4 gal fuel cell and run that standalone for PI, get the turbo on and get an underrroute made.

    Once all that is done, I'll get the Alcantara seats swapped over.

    Lolz. Turbo should be on in the next week or two. Just waiting on @KingScumbag to get me his old under route piping, and then the journey can begin! Need to bug the powder coating shop as well and see what the hell is going on with my valve cover and other stuff. They've had it 2 months now with no update.

    7 years later!!! lol Don't forget to remove and check under the baffle on the valve cover PC material likes to get trapped under there.

    Actually removed the baffle beforehand to have a - 10AN bung welded to the top for venting before I dropped it off for powder. So I'll just need to clean the inside of the cover up before reinstalling the baffle

    @Sho nice! sadly seen a few built motors get wasted from not cleaning behind the baffles

    Are you venting through the -10an because of issues arising or prevention?

    Prevention. I have a ghetto bung on my current valve cover, where I tapped a 3/8npt hole in the back of the vc, and stuck in the brass barbed piece that comes on HTP intakes for the vc to intake line for a single port vented occ. Just a cleaner execution this time. Been venting there since 2015

    What are you using as a vacuum source for crank case ventilation?

    I run the perm pcv plate in this setup
    perm_boost_flow.jpg

    And then have the VTA occ off the back of the valve cover as well as the new design Sp63 gen 1 breather cap. Likely way overkill, but hey... I dont see too many other folks with 82k+ miles on a built motor haha

    holy moly 5 evacuation ports, the oil and crankcase must love it. Overkill but true 82k is a testament

    I wonder if the longevity is due to your crankcase psi being low as possible without a vac pump almost immediately when it builds getting rid of blowby, contaminants, windage and maybe less wear on bearings from the reduced parasitic drag (probably reaching with this one) but makes sense to me with how external vacs work.

    Peep these comments from Blackstone

    ~58k on motor ~ 2800 on oil sample of Brad Penn 10w40
    Capture+_2019-04-13-19-40-58.png

    ~78k on motor, ~3k on tribodyn 15w40. This was after lifting the head on stock head bolts at roughly 540/440, fixing that, upgrading the head bolts and installing a custom HG, and then running t6 for a few hundred miles to flush out any leftover. And then 2800 miles finishing the tune and doing 3-4 wot pulls a day, including dyno pulls Capture+_2019-04-13-19-43-37.png

    With @The_Weis_Guy help, pulled the 5862 today and tossed a 6266 in as well as an fj performance under routed hotside thanks to @KingScumbag. Had to replace the drain line as the original was blown out inside, but otherwise all is good. Now just to wait for my damn powder coating to be done!
