    I went out to start my car yesterday to go get some wine for a diner party at my neighbor's house. I fired it up and the idle was oscillating between about 800 and 1400 rpm. The pedal was...

    That's probably not the case because T-6 has a higher concentration of ZDDP and phosphorous can lower the life expectancy of three way catalysts so LL-01 oils have been developed with less ZDDP....

    I use the T6 and have had good results according the UOA with a tuned, stock turbo car. More phosphorous and zinc (ZDDP) than an LL-01 oil because they have been removing ZDDP to prevent damage to...

    Glad to hear you are OK. There will always be more cars to build. Hobbies are merely a way to occupy our spare time not spent doing the things that matter most. I can sympathize with your labor of...

    If you are set on keeping this car, the suspension is where I would focus most of my time and money. It will never be powerful like a forced induction car, and if you want to put forced induction on...

    Nice work on the electrical. There is nothing like custom built harnesses to make a project look finished. Going the extra step and using heat shrink tubing takes the quality beyond most OEM. The...

    The question was if the sensor actually tests the quality of the oil. It does. The sensor has a capacitor built in that is used to measure the dielectric constant of the oil. Read why that is...

    I would try to come to an amicable solution with the supplier of the turbos. Posting their name here will definitely not help.

    I agree with RSL fatigue would have taken what I would think would...

    Another possibility is an error in assembly.

    Did you find the nut? It can't get too far. Or maybe it was destroyed by the blades, though they are aluminum and the nut should be steel.

    I am not sure on the processor, but pre 03/07 is most likely different than post 03/07. I say this because the Alpina code works in one but not the other. Unless the change is just the supporting...

    Could it have to do with the rate of change of engine speed? "RPM Dynamic" implies to me the engine is changing speed.

    Maybe zero it out and see what happens.

    That honestly surprises me. I have gotten in the habit of using anti-seize on most fasteners especially in the suspension, though when I initially took my front suspension apart to install the M3...

    Looks good. Something I didn't think about when I had my engine suspended, but did you loop that chain around as a backup means of support should the hooks on the screw part of the engine bar fail?

    Emphatically, YES!



    I wouldn't expect too much rust. Most of the fasteners are galvanized. I live in PA where they liberally use salt during the winter and I haven't had too much trouble.

    In this one you can pretty clearly see boost mean abs going way above req boost abs. The DME shuts the throttle and throws a code. In my opinion this doesn't look like a Base WDGC table that is a...

    It can be done without dropping the subframe and I have done three turbo swaps that way, but after replacing my oil pan gasket and having to drop the subframe for that I would never swap turbos again...

    I see you tried a u-bolt. I would think that could work if you replaced the flat piece with a piece of angle steel. I am sure that flat piece bent pretty quickly.
