    There are a bunch of grounds on the firewall, with some being near by the cabin filter. Sounds like a bad ground or loose connection somewhere.

    One set of ground points is on the firewall behind...

    +1 more for the rubber mount. I remember having trouble getting the perches mounted on my Koni's as well. Then after two years the perches bent in the rear and one corner was sitting lower, so...

    @RS8 I'm not planning on chasing HP with this car and the 630s are recommended from various people. I am going with a 5 bar regulator while I'm in there since that's pretty easy and inexpensive.

    I made some progress on a couple of the mini-projects, but haven't really completed any of them yet.

    First was to remove the spacer on the back of the crank shaft. Drilled out and tapped a 7/8"...

    Nice! I didn't get a chance to play with the force gauge this weekend, but it's still on my to do list. I'll definitely tee the two together when I do the final adjustments though. What happens, or...

    No worries. It could be very possible that the spring is already preloaded in the actuator and any ADDITIONAL preload that is added by the rod is minimal which would match what you see in the real...

    Yes, spring rate is linear, but the point at which the wastegate opens is determine by the spring preload set by the adjustment nut

    The opening pressure would be regulated by the spring PRELOAD, not the stiffness. Once the wastegate is closed, any additional tightening of the adjustment rod is going to increase the PRELOAD of the...

    Since the passenger side wastegate didn't get disturbed I'm inclined to use the mityvac to find the cracking pressure then adjust the drivers side to match. They should open at the same pressure...

    @hahnmgh63, it has 155k on the car so it's probably due anyways for a turbo rebuild.

    Update:
    I have the car and engine pretty much stripped as far down as I was planning on. The valve cover...

    Hopping on the O1E bandwagon

    5HP24 is on it's way out. Doesn't make financial sense to me to have it rebuilt just for it to fail in another 30k miles so I'm going down the path of the 01E conversion.

    Plan is to use the...

    There was some sparkling in the fluid, so it's probably on its way out.

    Valve Body or Clutch problem?

    The transmission was rebuilt (according to the carfax) around 123k miles. I don't have any documentation, but the stall torque is around 2200 so I think there was some upgrading done? Anyways, the...
