I got my Honda MTF, power steering and Brake fluid in today along with my Torco oil.
A long awaited package just arrived.
Just got the turbo in today.
I got the intercooler on but ran out of daylight to go any further.
I finally got this guy out
Wish I had some turbo money.
It has become an expensive Project and I still got a ways to go.
Aren't all projects expensive?
I just broke my motor or the turbo just went out . Tomorrow I am going to pull the turbo to check in morning.
Sorry man. Details of what happened?
Bye bye block. Not 100 percent happened it cracked around the oil filter. I am looking in to getting a new block at the moment.
Were you doing a big pull? Driving around normal? What happened?
It happened during a data pull the car was running smoothly and when I went for my WOT pull from 2.5k-5.5k at 4k it made a pop sound and what sounded like small pieces braking off the car like bolts(if that makes sense). At the moment I believe I just had bad luck a thrown the #1 rod just enough to crack the block around the oil filter.
Once it warms up I am going to pull the subframe, turbo and oil pan to see if I can see anything else.
Man that sucks. Sorry to hear.
Was it running a basemap from a company? Are you tuning with someone, or you're trying to tune it yourself?
I am currently tuning with Rob Reiner from prayoonto racing.
I was on my 4th revision starting to get into the WOT pulls.
did you tell him your motor blew using his map/tune?
