      That's awesome man. I'd just build my KA if it wasn't going to cost so much. From what I've seen, it is cheaper to just buy a decent full swap instead of building the whole motor. And since I'm only looking for 300ish hp, I'm trying to keep cost down as much as possible.

      Hey guys,

      Here I am, 4ish years later after ghosting, still have yet to finish this build.

      Long story short, I lost interest, got other projects, moved to the west coast while the car remained on the east coast, got a crazy job that has me on the road 3/4 of the time, basically life and excuses got in the way.

      But I'm back working on the car. I don't know if anyone on these forums even gives a **** about build threads on the 1.8t anymore, but I'm going to continue doing this so I have the final project to look back on in 2040 when it finally hits the road...



      Recently I've been combing through the things that are showing their age in the engine bay. I've been removing cob webs, ordering parts, cleaning, shining, scrubbing, basically doing anything I can to make a car that has been sitting for years not look like a total waste of time.




      Here are a few of the recent projects:
      1: I have decided to ditch the custom intake manifold that I built previously in this build. I built the original one due to lack of funds, but this time around I've decided to go with the IE intake mani for ease of install/damn good looks.

      IE Intake Mani, IE Fuel Rail, and Genesis II 1000cc injectors from USRT:





      2: At one point, another member told me that he had issues with the plastic radiator elbows sealing to the aluminum Mishimoto radiator, so my brother helped me fab up some leak proof coolant elbows to prevent any future issues. We decided to lengthen the lower elbow a bit to help space the radiator hose from the fans.





      3: Ordered some new fans, new alternator, and a new starter since they were all looking pretty rough from the years of sitting.



      4: Last but not least, labeling. I'm going to pull the wiring harnesses out and try to simplify things a bit/update the old cracked plastic sheathing to make things look a little nicer. To be honest, it's been a bit of head ache guessing at where things used to go from memory. Especially with all of the SAI, Evap, N75, etc deleting that was done years ago. Haha.




      P.S. Sorry for all of the old broken photo links. Photobucket blows. Overtime, I'm going to try to go through and update them the best that I can.

      My brother fabbed this down pipe and dump tube several years ago after I first moved to CA, but it never made it onto the build page. Stainless & Vbanded.




      Tonight they got some DEI Titanium exhaust wrap to try to keep the engine bay temps under control.



      It bugs the **** out of me that I came up a few inches short with my wrap estimate. Oh well...should do its job.


      That cable tie gun really worked wonders on getting the ties good and tight and leaving a clean trimmed edge. I highly recommend it over the old plier trick

      Got the new alternator, starter, radiator with the welded elbows, fans, and the radiator shroud on this weekend. Replaced all of the old crappy looking hardware with new stainless stuff. Also, Gonna ditch the factory crash bar and build a tube one once we build and fit the intercooler & piping.









      Waiting for a bunch of odds and ends to show up, then I should have a complete fueling system. More progress then.

      What the hell! Really? I took so much time to go back and re-upload photos. Haha. They all show on my end.

      What site is everyone using to link photos these days?

      I finally went through and updated all of these offline photos, so hopefully they work for everyone! (screw photobucket)

      We've been making a lot of progress on the car lately.

      We started building a tube bumper:






      I got a set of Vibra-Technics Race Motor Mounts:




      We finished fabricating the Intake and built the IC Piping:













      The Intake and IC Piping are off at the local powder coater's getting a nice coat of textured black

      Rather than going the traditional route of tucking the hideous power steering reservoir under the frame rail, we decided to build a new reservoir in its place using AN fittings and braided line:









      (I dont have any internal photos of the PS reservoir baffling, but it is very similar to the return side of the catch can below)

      We also built this Catch Can to go along with the style of the PS reservoir:












      Once these are welded completely, they will get a coat of texture black with a nice polished Never Lift Auto Fab logo plate for my brother's fabrication shop.

      Hope all of these photos work for you guys.

      Photos seem to be working fine. Also, great fabrication work! The custom power steering reservoir and catch can are amazing. I assume the car is still in Lewisburg, PA. That's not too far from me.

      Yeah, Still in the Lewisburg area.

      Thanks guys! Stoked on how they turned out. Here's both after finishing the welding today. .

      Got rid of most of the old cracked plastic sheathing on the harness.











      IC Piping and Intake also came back from powder coat.

      Doesn't look like much, but got quite a few loose ends tied up today.

      Changed the 5 year old Royal Purple Break In Oil out for some fresh RP Break In Oil, Got the power steering pulley and belt installed, Put some new heater core hoses on, Installed the billet dipstick tube, Finalized the wiring/hoses under the intake manifold and got the intake manifold on and torqued, and got a couple of the braided lines for the power steering reservoir and catch can put together.

      (Sorry for the limited photos)




      Still have to tackle the wiring for the inline fuel pump, finish the engine bay side of the battery relocation, get my tune sorted out, then it's mainly small things from there.


      Has anyone had experience with tunes from GTS Performance? I bought a Custom Stage 4 tune with the Remote Tuning flasher several weeks ago when they had a holiday sale and I can't seem to get in contact with them. I sent one e-mail a few days after the original purchase asking if there was a modification list I had to fill out to get my custom tune, I then received an e-mail telling me to text a number for further instructions, so I did on 2 separate days and never got a response. I waited a few days then e-mailed them back, and once again no response. So I waited a couple more days and sent another e-mail and 2 days later, still no response?

      I'm going to try calling them tomorrow, but has anyone else ran into this? What's the best way to reach them?
