Car is running. JUst a few more things to work out.
Doing spark plugs, ignition coils, some injectors, o2 sensors and relocating oil drain on turbo.
Also adding a oil catch can.

For now here's a short video of when I was doing a test drive of some changes. It misfired when going into boost.
But it still sounds amazing. Boost gauge was disconnected.

Let me know how it goes. I may buy one for myself. At $1.57 and free shipping, it's hard to pass up.

Did I mention your car is batshit nuts?

The comments from the panel in this ad fit perfectly, here. I just wish I had the tools, skills and time to blot out the Dodge and replace it with an E92.

So... long story short.

Cylinder 3 index 8 injector stuck open. I let the car sit and had no idea. Started it up... and kaboom goes cyl3 getting hydrolocked.
Motor is out. Doing everything right. Replacing every single thing that can be replaced. Enjoy some pics pics for now.
Many more to come of the whole rebuild.

Old motor


New motor

Yeah it sucks big time. But you know what? it could of been way worse if I was driving in high boost etc. I knew RIGHT when I started it what had happened. It's a good thing we know what knocking sounds like lol. And a bad thing... because I've heard it to many times

It'll be even better now though so that's something to look forward to.

And for good measure I bought brand new injectors. The newest designs.

Super slow.

Probably run a conservative 28psi 820whp tune for daily driving. Nothing to crazy.

Shes back on the road. Running at 100%.
Still taking logs on pump gas map. But I plan on putting E85 in for my other map some time this week.
This video was of half throttle testing at 17psi.
