It's been a while since I posted the progress on Hogan:
Stripped out the interior (Because racewagon?):
Moved the Cusco rear diff brace from Artoo over:
Then Omiotek came over and cut a hole in Hogan's roof:
Then we covered it up with this:
I started putting the black interior in, and made sure to catch another detail:
Tossed Artoo's old STi intercooler on and an SPT intake:
Continued on the interior:
Then realized I had to come up with an INIT connector to tune Hogan, so I kinda made this key:
Once I loaded my new map on, I tried it, and it fired right up! I drove it for a bit when I realized the exhaust I'd used from Toaster was poorly modified to be too long for Hogan. Fortunately, Omiotek was nice enough to cut off the messed up portion of the Cobb catback and weld on a replacement length of pipe with a new flange:
All was right with the world! Until Hogan's radiator puked a week or so later:
Fortunately, I was on the way to a shop anyway, and I ended up just paying them to replace it so I could drive it home. Thanks Six Star!
If it's just barely better than boost, you need to add more boost The vent is awesome though! I gotta confess, I had mine before you installed yours and was pretty bummed you got yours installed first!
Hogan's 228K mile short block has held up so far to 14 psi. It's got a lot of piston slap on startup, so I figure the boost will help the rings seal.
i try to take pics far away so you can't see. :lol: i've got the spots on the roof, and it appears the previous owner covered some up on the ever popular rear quarters. and...i found some decent rust on the frame rails by the trailer hitch mount the other day.
it was owned up north for the first 30-40K of it's life before i got it at 60K.
