This is rather annoying :-/ now the ypipe is too short that i got. Going to have to extend it with some metal tube. Also the bypass valve for the intercooler has a different od than the bypass tube it needs to connect to.

so many little things...

ej20k issues - YouTube


Sounds like it is coming from the front of the engine. I can't make sense of what is going on. If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

Fixed my needle issue. turns out they were in the wrong start position. I turned the car to the on position and manually moved them back to 0. Everything has checked out so far speed and rpm.

Need another rs gauge to verify 99-01.

Recently installed a wide band from PLX. (not sure how I feel about it yet)

More mods to come.
