Been so busy working on the truck i forgot to post some updates.

Got the engine mounted and the front end back together.

Fabbed up the stainless tubular manifold, pretty stoked how it turned out :D

Test fitted the turbo and was hoping I could use a mandrel bend for the 3" downpipe... But it wouldn't clear the heater core lines so resorted to good ol' pie cuts to get the tight bend.

Sorry its been so long since I've updated this! I took August off from working on the caddy due to an ongoing shoulder injury. I'm slowly getting back into working on the truck and will hopefully have it on the road very soon. Here are the latest updates:

The aluminum plenum intake all welded together.

Image
Image

Deleted the 2bar MAP sensor and spliced in a 3bar. Moar boost baby!
Image

Air to water intercooler installed
Image

Had to make my own dash panel so I could fit the Mk3 cluster. Added some carbon fiber wrap (thanks to Joe @Dublu) and 3D printed a custom gauge mount for the boost/EGT.
Image

Turned out well considered how much of a pain in the ass it was to fit that cluster.

All that is left for a test drive is to bleed the injectors, hang the exhaust, and install the passenger axle. Crossing my fingers that ill be rolling some coal this weekend :D

Sorry i haven't update this in awhile, iv been suffering from a shoulder injury. I tore cartilage in my shoulder that requires surgery.. so iv been very limited on what i can do to the truck. Needless to say its been running and drives... but not the greatest. Im having a fueling issues that has been narrowed down to a dirty fuel tank. Once fueling is sorted out i will be installing the .24 nozzles and ordering my tune from Malone. Then bags and bodywork.
Ill keep you posted.

Curt.

Hey Curt what kinda fueling issues are you having? And what makes you think its a dirty tank?

Do mk1's have an in tank screen? I've yet to find a solid answer if mk2's do or don't.

I've been having some diesel fueling issues of my own and I've tried my best to try and sort it out but still have a minor issue, I'm just curious as to what you've tried and been able to narrow down.
