Good score on that interior. I feel your pain on the exhaust I have two dynomax ultras And I'm going to put some kind of resonator behind the axles. I don't think you can have no restrictions on a turbo and sound like a stock car.
Right now its dumping at the feet of the drivers side, I have an existing magna flow cat back that I am going to connect to. Not sure what its going to sounds like but I hope quieter. Before I had a single 3" dump before at the rear axle and I swear I got a headache every time from all the vibrations and the fact it was never quiet. I don't mind the loud at the back of the car, I just don't want the loud in the cabin area.
Thanks, on the interior, pretty excited. I am not sure what my car will sound like with my dual exhaust, my neighbor across the street is a bit turbo guy and he says I should never have any baffolds or restrictions in my exhaust, after the turbo you want a straight shot out. So my car has two sort of "glass pack" mufflers on the magnaflow setup I have, if I don't like the sound I am going to figure out a different exhaust. But I also have a cut out if I want to be loud and free flow so if I end up putting a baffled muffler on I will open the cutout when I want all the performance out of the car.Good score on that interior.

Thanks, Interior was definitely sheer luck that I found it all the cheap. I have the power steering line that comes out underneath the ps reservoir wrapped, and the clutch cable, not sure if the ps line that comes out the side of the reservoir needs the wrap, line is not too close to any of the exhaust.Nice pick up on the interior. BTW, I would highly suggest wrapping up that powersteering line with some heat shielding or wrap. Rubber fluid lines over exhaust = no no.
That would be pretty cool to see the pipes come out the side skirts, you don't see to many cars with that. I only have one pipe coming off the turbo so I am running single 3" to dual 2.5" so no x/h-pipe.I know what you mean about the headache, I was thinking of bringing the pipes to the side skirts like the '00 cobra or to the tail pipe. I dont have the cutouts tho for the tail tho. Are you going to be indpendent or X/H-pipe?
Gotcha, that all makes sense, I ordered more wrap and I am going to wrap the lines as soon as it all comes in. The dual exhaust that I have now has straight through mufflers so no backpressure anywhere.In regards to the powersteering line, it would be better to play it safe rather then sorry, a heat wrap for that line should be under $20.
In regards to exhaust, yes, you don't want regular mufflers behind it that cause back pressure, you want as free flowing an exhaust after the turbo as you can. I am putting glasspacks in mine as well. In regards to sound with mufflers, it pretty much sounds stock, even when I had the cam in it because the turbo abosorbs so much of the sound from the exhaust.
Not too sure what your referring to about the piston, I cleaned the surface a bit more and took some closer up pictures. I have been running pretty rich, AFR has been 10.6ish at WOT and 12.8-13.2 at idle. I have simen delka 60# injectors, have a return system with FPR set at 40psi, I have an A-1000 so I have lots of fuel volume.The photo where you show a crack also, to me, shows part of the top edge of the piston burned or broken off. If it turns out to be true,, this would be detonation and if so, would be from lack of fuel from the tune, pumps, or injectors. A likely possibility in a turbo motor. So, what size of injectors were you using? What type of fuel system--returnless or return? How much did your fuel pump(s) flow? Can you get a copy of your tune to where I can view the borderline spark table AND the base fuel table to take a look-see?
I also attached a picture of the spark plug from cylinder 1.Good eye 6 I see it too. Turbang 6 What did the plug on #1 look like?
