Lmao i've just remembered that my engine number doesnt match my vin plate which doesnt match the number stamped on the chassis in the engine bay of my Mira.

Cant wait to get pulled over and them be like "wtf"

Dude you’re fine I got pulled over and my car was registered as a 4 cylinder but it had an I6 in there lol NSW Highway Patrol can’t even count to 6

Nobody checks VIN. I have a swapped '03 GSX1216f, '85 swapped GS750ES, and '06 swapped Charger on 9psi. Cops couldn't care less......never heard a word. Does the basic 'script match the registration? same color...ish? cool! ....done. They care about how fast you were, and how much to charge ya for being a horrible, untrustworthy, unjust delinquent...NOT what junk was involved. And really, you should feel bad for breaking speed limits....I mean, we broke the 100mph barrier over a hundred years ago; most vehicles can easily manage that....but let's just limit progress and charge people for it! AWESOME plan!

Bois, my fuel cap hisses when I open it. A dude says it puts too much strain on the fuel pump/tank and I should drill a hole to let air in slowly as the fuel leaves the tank to avoid needing to replace stuff. Big no-no or is this a thing?

Don't drill a hole...

99% of cars will do that due to expanding and contracting gases in the tank, it’s fine.

If it didn’t need a hole from factory it doesn’t need one now.

Also don’t light any cigarettes near your mates fuel tank unless you want to instantly remove your eyebrows.

Ordered up some Bilstein B6’s and King Springs for the Outback. It hurt.

Only took me 3 months to get it running lol M52B28 swap is pretty much done just tidying up a couple loose ends, but I took it to some back roads the other day and it’s so much better.

Shhhh don't give them ideas!

I didn't drill the hole.

Also, boost pipe went woosh. Can't find another one to replace it in the town I'm stranded in. How hacky can I get here? Can the turbo output handle a jubilee clip around it and some zipties forcing the tube to stay in place? Basically one of the two notches that keep the tube in place broke.


(album with more pics for context: https://imgur.com/a/HVG7WmP)

One jubilee clip on the turbo + one jubilee clip on the tube + zipties holding both jubilee clips together might work. Not much boost, like, under 10 psi. Could maybe also find something to put over the whole assembly but I'm not driving and shit here is so far away from eachother and no one has anything in stock.

How hot does a small turbo usually get? 2.0 diesel

Turbo is likely to get 800*F and hotter.

Rig it up, don’t make any boost. Go slow or it will more than likely pop off with boost pressure again.


Nothing ventured nothing gained.

Good luck. Breakdowns are shit

Engine is dead

So engine is almost dead, needs a rebuild

plans are

1) 4D56TDI
2) Rebuild the engine
3) V6 swap, most likely auto box and ability to run a rubicon transfer so 4:1 gearing

in the mean time, going to get some tubes to build the flares and sliders, probably the stinger and some tube work on the front.... its boring to let it sit

Bruh. Didn't quite realize it got this hot.

I put it back together to go for a drive, and it didn't pop off taking it easy. A bit of a long story, but I tend to drive like a grandma, on that day I happened to be going up steep hills very fast, and it happened to be hot. Probably had never worked the turbo as hard before, and, after putting things back together with a screw that was previously missing, a loud "huummmm" whilst driving disappeared, so this was probably in the making for a couple of months and it just didn't happen because grandma driving.

Gonna hunt around for a salvage yard, but at least I know I can drive around if taking it easy. Max speed here is 80km/h anyway.

That's one nice truck, bro!

This is so sick! Turbo diesel would be cool, I’m partial to inline engines for simplicity though so there’s some bias there.
