Finally found the time to get my COPs installed. Pretty straight forward, but the first harness I made just wasn’t the right gauge wire.

So I did it again and all is well.

Finish the plug and play for 1.6 since I had a spare igniter

Now that they work I can finish up the look of the harness





I’ll just be doing a once over again for everything before the tune day and bring some extra parts and we should be ready!

Got my first ever professional tune completed.



Things I learned:

-Time is money
-Make sure you’re absolutely ready to go before you’re there
-Have EBC setup before hand

So background:

Mods:
-Wiseco Forged Rods: 78.5mm/8.5.1
-Manley Forged H-Beam rods
-Supertech Valve Spring Kit: dual springs 49lbs
-New Stock Oil Pump
-Supermiata 6 puck clutch: rated for 340ft/lbs of torque
-460cc Rx7 injectors
-3.9 ratio torsen diff
-Stock 5 speed transmission
-GT82 Turbo, w water lines
-External gated, with Tial 38mm
-Turbosmart Raceport BOV
-Running 10lbs off wastegate pressure

Dyno info:
212hp, 175 tq




Since this is my first time doing this ****, I felt it went well, learned some things, and KNOW there’s more power.

Problems:
MAP sensor was reading about 40-50kpa higher than normal throughout, so I had them tune around it for now until I get a replacement and go back.

Wants:
-New 3 bar MAP sensor
-Flex fuel sensor
-Deatschwerks DW300c FP
-EBC (hooked up and running)
-Another dyno day

Positives:
-Nothing blew up
-No leaks
-Drove it there and drove it home
-Drives a billion times better
-Feel ready time actually get it on the track and find more problems!

Only took 7 years, that’s all!

OH old news, I had an oil feed come loose during dyno prep literally 2 days before.

It caught flames, always ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher, literally saved my ass.

Turbo blanket was soaked, it was quite a site to see with all the smoke behind me but I cut it off and saved the motor too.

Washed all the oil off and tightened the fitting and drove home that night with no issues.

Never a dull moment haha

You’re not lying there!

Literally saw smoke coming from the hood but it was small and figured it was finger prints.

Then I drove further and looked behind me and it was just clouds!
