Nice :laugh:
Lots of work still.
Indeed those AN fittings are expensive.
But they take the abuse of heat and pressure ;-)
Good luck finishing your project.

I was able to use one of the 4 AN hoses that came with the turbo for the oil feed hose, and this freed up a 4 AN 90 degree fitting. The hose was nylon oil rated with stainless braid which is way more flexible and it fit so much better for the oil feed then the 90 and 45 degree p.t.f.e. hose that I was using. I mangled the 45 fitting when I was playing around with the hose hook up but the 90 will work for one side of the water hook up for the wastegate. I have plenty of 4 AN hose on hand and all I need now is a straight 4 AN and a new coupler (cheaper). I was also able to use another 4 AN hose that came with the turbo for the other wastegate h2o line. I ordered up on Ebay two 6 AN to 6 AN to 4AN T fittings (decent price; quality is the same for these). The Y fitting that I was going to use coming out of the thermostat housing wouldn’t fit which I discovered after going to test fit the radiator shroud. I’m glad I wait on the orders for this stuff until after the test fit. I will need three 6 AN straight fittings to connect to T fittings; I have one 6 AN on hand. This all saved a quite a bit of money.

I’m still playing around with the oil feed hoses to the remote mount. Today I’ll take the hoses off and connect a straight on one side and see where I can get it to route safely to the other end with the limited space.

Like always I have been detoured by everything under the sun. Project is creeping to a close. I will prime the oil system today, and hopefully go for a test drive. I’ll try to take some new pictures today if I get a chance.

I completed the first few test drives and had her back up and running yesterday. The ball bearing turbo sounds like a small jet engine with the larger air intake. I will have to tweak the idle and the blow off valve a little but she ran pretty sweat! The Tial external wastegate with an 8 lbs spring holds her at 10 psi with the boost controller all the way turned down. I brought her up a few clicks which holds her a 12 psi. The internal wastegate in the the old turbo never held her solid and I was always fighting boost creep. The wideband even with the new sensor still wasn’t registering. I will try recalibrating one more time. If that doesn’t work I will send in for another sensor. If that doesn’t work I will try another wideband company altogether. The Centerforce old clutch is rated up to 190 hp and it wasn’t holding with the other turbo and now it really won’t hold if I don’t baby the turbo with the accelerator. The other clutch I have on hand is rated to I believe 280 hp but I cannot have my car down at the moment since it is my only vehicle. My white GT and the Ford Probe GT are both down. I have to have a reliable backup and I started setting up a purchase for a T3 turbo.

I sorted a few loose ends today. My new Race Sport lifetime ballast HID were having issues with the high beams not working with the bi-xenon bulbs. The harness came plugged in the wrong way and a little swapping around of the pins and now they’re functioning correctly. I fixed an annoying misting of the oil cooler by cleaning down the viton o-rings and resealing. I plastic welded the front bumper top mount. I will have to grind it down to make it look more aesthetically pleasing.

I still can not figure out the o2 wideband sensor. I’m going to send the sensor in for a replacement, but after that I’m just going to try a new company. It is an Innovate Motorsport LC-2 wideband and it only worked for the first six months. I have tried a few different sensor replacements which is what the fault code is reading to no results. I absolutely hate that the wiring they use is ridiculously small and fragile.
