Re: Catch can flow restriction

Start the car and put your hand over the PCV or VC breather. Ask your self if you really think that thing is restricting.

I don't believe so. A 5/8 line is a pretty good size line.

But geez, what a cluster **** of awful looking hoses and fittings.

Re: Motor angle question

Your drain shouldn't have anything more than a 45* angle on your return line anyways according to most manufactures. I'd start there.

Oil Pump Pressure Regulator failure

Anybody ever experienced this before? Long story short. Engine got a rebuild this winter (and no, it didn't blow up so no metal or debris traveled through the pump) and upon my first handfuls of start ups oil pressure was great. Did my first oil change to get the assembly lube out of the oil and upo...

Did you use paint or PC on those covers? (like your upper timing cover)

Mine are off the car and I can sandblast and paint at work, just trying to get a nice factory looking silver.

I had a cxracing manifold. It cracked. Got it re-welded at my work and was fine. Spend the money once. If all you're concerned with is the manifold and piping buy a good brand used manifold off the forums, and have someone make you IC piping.

Re: Hoping for some suggestions

Do a compression and leak down test. If the results are good, remove the upper timing chain, and do the common turbo kit everyone does, t28, SR injectors, z32 maf, and call it a day. If you want to tune yourself, megasquirt is a good budget friendly option

Re: New to Ka-t. Need advice on a Ka-t build

as long as your parts match the tune, you should be good.
Absolutely get a wideband, just buy an AEM UEGO and be done with it. Its a very important tool. You'll obviously need oil feed/return lines and a tapped oil pan, as well as a downpipe.

Re: 2nd time around

I've had the same issue with my WG, where you just have to run a lighter spring. Seemed to me like 2/3 of desired boost = spring pressure. example, my target boost was 18, so I put the 11 or 12 pound spring in. I do run a MBC though. Also, I think jegs/summit makes relatively universal starter heat ...

Re: Crank questions...

The important part is getting it balanced as it is only semi balanced from the factory. But thats assuming you'd like to rev it higher than the stock limiter. Aside from that, you'll be just fine. At 400whp the crank isn't going to be anywhere near the weak point.
