NEW DATE! So Cal Mod Day - LE5 Turbo Build
UPDATE: Due to a PCM failure, this build will be postponed. I'm hoping to make it on November 21-22nd. More details in a new post later on.
NEW DATE: November 21-22nd.
Now I'm calling it a mod day but most mod days a bunch of people work on their cars. This mod day is going to be a little different. I will be installing and tuning the LE5 turbo build and probably will not have time to help out with any other mods. Also, the garage I'll be doing it in is my Girlfriend's and we don't have a lot of parking at her place to load up with cars to be worked on. It's a two car garage and really only has room to work on one car.
Now I'm not asking for help. I can do this build solo (really isn't going to be all that hard) but I know there are some people on here who would like to learn more about our cars and since this is an LNF turbo setup going on an LE5, there will be something for both Redline owners and NA owners to learn about. If you want to watch and see how this is done, Cool. If you want to jump in and lend a hand with some of the processes, it would help out. If you don't mind making a couple trips to Autozone (There are ALWAYS things you need at Autozone at a build day) I'd REALLY appreciate it.
Some of the tasks we will be performing for this build:
Exhaust manifold removal
2.4 LE5 injector replacement
LE5 fuel system depressurization
LNF exhaust manifold, turbo, and cat installation including water and oil lines
Charge pipe installation
Boost controller installation
LE5 2 bar MAP installation
Oil Catch Can installation
Air intake basic fabrication and installation
Ecotech tuning with HDtuners
I suspect that most of the build part will only take place on Saturday. It really shouldn't take more than a day to put the turbo on. (Intercooler and water pipe/thermostat housing are already done.) Sunday will mostly be tuning and getting her running right. We'll order pizza for lunch and I'll have some cold ones on hand for those that want to show up.
