Re: Reman crank

Yes that is wear from the old seal. When you re-install the new rear main seal just make sure the oil seal lip (inside) is not sitting right in that groove. You should be able to press the seal into the cover but only 80-90% in. Put light amount of oil and put the cover on, then take it off and see ...

Re: PDM Control Arms Ball Joint ?

I have not had luck with pressing in ball joints into these LCAs. A few years ago I had to replace one and the Moog one I had pressed in fairly loosely. I wound up tack welding it in place on the bottom just to be sure. Those differences are pretty small and just might depend on the size of the knur...

Re: build list /hp and torq

Mostly: You need to research some yourself on this topic. Everything works together depending on your intent. For power of 400hp you need to decide on gas (very attainable) or corn. Corn almost doubles your injector size. Are you sticking with the stock ECU? MAF or MAP? Do you want a budget turbo or...

Re: Destroyed thrust bearing

I remember my machinist grinding either the crank or bearing down because it would not fit. I don't remember which. I used Clevite's also. He noted it when measuring everything up before the crank went back in. I guess the answer depends on if that interference was cleared up before everything went ...

Re: Adjusted Idle, now runs like trash.

If you adjust throttle body screw your throttle sensor needs to be adjusted to 0.46-0.48v at closed throttle. Otherwise the ECU loses track of closed/open throttle and will not drive well.

Shiny the install looks real clean! The ECU will throw a code for ignition coil but it should not cause the light to be on. You are just seeing the code when you scan right? You are correct that it no longer sees the single coil go negative. For timing the ECU has to go into timing mode to lock in 2...

Re: GT2876R 17.5PSI 375hp/356tq

Great numbers!

I'm guessing you are right about the exhaust side choking it off and not allowing you to use up all of the compressor available. You might only gain a few HP with boost increase but your torque peak should still climb.

Are you still rolling on stock wheels with that power?

It's just automatically mapped for LS and maxima coils so you just set it and go.

Re: Turbo cams, boost and maf values.

This is a really great comparison (both the actual change and the method by which you are comparing them).

Are these plots just driving around or one pull to redline? Why are there a few "high fliers" at low boost?
