Look good! I found they smoothed out my idle a ton. Hopefully they help you as well.

So I have been having a residue oil leak after the XDI bolt snapped... cleaned it good a few a times thinking it might have been left over oil seeping since oil went everywhere....

Still get this small leak...



And a bit more here..



When XDI sent me the new bolts they also sent me a new stock mounting plate as well... so I finally took the time to pull it all apart again...

Sure enough there is the SLIGHTEST bend on mine from when the bolt snapped and the pump flexed the original plate... only detectable when placing on a flat surface.. it rocks just a hair...

So swapped them and will see if this one doesn’t leak...



And mounted...



Oh and this doesn’t fit...




Hopefully I can put this the bed...

Well.. things have been a bit slow lately.. Had the stomach flu since last Thursday.. Finally went to the Doc... nothing they can really do.. all my lab work came back spotless soooo just have to ride it out per se...

However, on the way to the doctor I hammered on the SHO a little bit...

Leak is gone, so I can conclude it was coming from the stock mounting plate getting a hair bend in it. Finally can put that one to rest. Did have small gas leak from the HPFP high pressure line from me pulling it off.. re-adjusted and tightened it down, fixed...

The MSD Blaster COP much to my surprise actually do help smooth out the rpms and idle. It was kinda of "Well they get good reviews.. I don't really think they are going to do anything, but why not" purchase.. well.. I agree with the reviews. It does seem to have a bit more ugg nugga up top.. maybe like 1 ugg nugga.. but also smoother...

Anyway.. waiting on an updated tune from Matt which is going to fix the throttle in first/second... should make a difference for sure.

Get well soon, in cliche parlance :D  Sounds like finally the SHO will be re-ascending to maximum potential!

Just little fun in 100F+ temps today...  old oil had 2,900 miles on it.. this was the original oil used with the turbo install plus multiple dynos, datalogs, and a few passes at the track..  LOOKED good.. no metal bits found with a magnet... 

Double checked for leaks etc and everything looks good.. the output seal on the PTU is still has a little shine on it but nothing serious yet.. 

So we now have fresh oil to continue the revisions on my turbos.. Matt is having to remap the tables since my car isn't responding the same way as his or anyone elses.. mine is VERY boost happy..

Progress has been made as the throttle is now opening all the way between shifts in a controlled manner so thats a plus.. keeping my fingers crossed that it will be good to go in the next couple revisions.. then onto the E30 revisions which shouldn't be near as bad since Matt said he can take the new mapping and apply them to the E30 tune..

I will say that getting these turbo's dialed in has been painful, BUT even the auto octane tune is a new beast with it almost done.. can't wait to see how the E30 feels.

Matt could cheat and apply parameters to get the car to respond correctly, but him and I discussed and agreed it would be better to have the turbos dialed in 100% as opposed to short cuts.
