i dont think my car will ever be done.
too many people flake on me that tell me that they will help me out but they dont commit.
unfortunately i cant do anything myself because im completely useless when it comes to doing mechanical work which is why i pay others to help me

even paying them they flake on me
so i have the pretty sad life

im almost to the point where i want to just give up on my build because too many people that i trust let me down.
i'm actually almost to the point that if it isn't done this next coming week then im going to honestly think about selling the entire car with all the crazy after market parts in it for obviously a discounted price and then use that money to buy a diff car

if money doesn't drive them to help me, i dont know what will.

like honestly this is more stressful to me than enjoyable.

i literally had 7 - 8 different people touch my car so far in trying to put it back together because of the inconsistency people give me about helping me out. that's ridiculous right?

Here are some photos of what the car looks like now.

We managed to put the BPV behind the bracket of the IC, and route the hose to the BPV in a nice way as well, yay!

Check them out!

To be honest, there is a kink in one of the coolant lines right under the throttle bodies, and I have no idea how to fix that...
I will leave that for my mechanic who will come on Monday to triple check everything before we pour all the fluids in and start it up.

He is also the same person that worked on my car and put everything together for my build in the thread, so I completely trust him.

As you can see I did remove the black support bar that was kinking the coupler connecting the upper left intercooler opening to the Y pipe so it looks A LOT better now.

I also went to the store to buy a 2.5" to 3" coupler (the blue one on the bottom right of the IC) because the last coupler that was used on there (the one that came with the a2a kit) was scraped and damaged, so it was definitely a goner.
We managed to clamp it down enough so there's nothing escaping, it looks fine and feels extremely tight to me so it's all good now.

The car should be up and running by Monday!


You already had this kit installed once, then wrecked your car right away saying your lucky to walk away alive. The kit fit the first time. You admitted to not having any mechanical aptitude. Yesterday you said you were giving up, then today said your car will be running by Monday. Read all your posts here and what was said on your own thread.

Sounds like everyone is trying to tell you there's no magic wand.


Best advice I can give you is to settle down and learn more first.

I'm not saying give up. I'm saying to be patient!

If you don't have that, your in the wrong hobby my friend. I and everyone else with any build experience can vouch.

P.S...I hope you didn't but a 2.5" to 3" coupler like you said. There isn't any 3" piping on this kit.

I did buy one and just clamped it down, but I am going to buy a 2.5" to 2.75" straight coupler (the actual one I need) online since the store didn't have it.

I just wanted to try it out and test fit it to see if it would still be okay (the 2.5" to 3").

I will replace it with the one shown in the picture haha

And you're absolutely right. If nobody has patience in this hobby then they are pretty much asking for a world of trouble, I can't deny that.

Anyone notice your bracket flexing when reversing? Just made a video to figure out what the sound was. I don’t ever notice it going forward though and ironically didn’t seem to have the issue before rebuild/impeller change and tbatt kit but idk how those could be related? Before this i was thinking gear chatter.
And am i dumb for running a no-slip on the stock 8lb pulley?

I think i found the source of my gas smell and rough start (triggering misfire code at startup). Clamp was snug but you can still see fuel bubble between the hose and regulator. Not sure if putting the clamp even closer will help the leak. Hope i can get this worked out and fixes it—before i was suspecting a crack in evap canister which woulda been more complicated than this

For those that want to quiet their bpv noise, here's the silencer I installed on my bpv, it's super quiet now.

Ordered mine. Will see of i need a separate tune if its on or off. I need more sleeper i feel like i’ve had a lot of people back out of a roll when i shift down to 3rd or second and they hear that loud blowoff. Some people are too proud especially cant lose to a G
Seb’s tunes are �� I beat Z with same setup on e85 tune with just my pump gas tune fromSeb. Z’s words not mine.

Nice. There's no reason you should need a separate tune with it on. I definitely like it quieter, it attracted attention from blocks away. I was afraid it was going to attract the black and white attention.

Anyone flex fuel tuned can help? Trying to wire ethanol into my evap pressure on ecu. Pin 102/gray wire is what i read. Mechanic had a different color wire listed in his manual but when we looked at what we thought was #102 it was gray. Now getting codes p2127/2138 and the likes saying throttle position/switch is off so starting to doubt i did the right wire. Goes away when i reconnect the wire. Looked through service manual but havent had any luck
Edit: asked VQ group on facebook—it could be a blue wire, it could be a light green wire, could be gray, but sounds like my gray wire goes to 103
Update: on my g37 it was a blue wire with gold marks, right next to gray wire (103). “EVAP” pressure sensor read .53 at 9.8% ethanol, now just waiting to see what’s next

Soooo finally got my blown charger fixed, they said they wouldn't warrant it with building it with the standard internal lubricant system again, so I've now gotta run oil lines.

They sent me like some weird tapping tool and ****, but I'm like why not just get a oil sandwich plate? Would something like this be okay to use? Running lines from this to the supercharger > back??

Did they recommend what size AN hose to run to the charger? My turbo is running a 4 AN line (I believe). That sandwich plate is likely 6/8AN. Thatís a lot of oil.
