Well the track strikes again.....or more bad luck. We had a test and tune planned for friday night. It got rained out. So saturday there was a big bracket race planned, so we decided to go then to get a few passes in. Rain was gone, car was pretty clean, and loaded.

This place was packed. Big money trucks and trailers everywhere.

And this is where I sat most of the day.....waiting....and waiting.

I got a total of two passes in, two really bad passes. First pass was 11.19 @ 118. 60ft was slow, 1/8, 1/4, trap speed. Wasn't sure what the issue was, it was a clean pass. I decided to reset the fuel trims since it was unusually cool that day and I'm running a SD tune. It should be noted the car was acting a little funky the whole day, idle surging, hanging high idle, etc. Well with no trims and another pass I ran 11.8x @ 110mph. That was WOT through the whole pass. I confirmed then that something was wrong. I did a quick scan of the car with HPTuners and saw a 10%+ driver trim and a 25%+ passenger trim. That would explain the terrible pass. There was nothing obvious wrong underhood so I will have to dig a little deeper another day when I get more time to see what the issue is!

Havent updated this in a while but im still on my NA quest for tens. I think ive got it figured out with spending some money but I'm trying to not make any major changes to the car so for now im changing parts that I can grow into later when I change the build up. Ive been running a FAST 92/PTM 95 combo for a while. I bought the black fast 92 when they re-released it a few years back. I always wondered if I gave up anything not going to a 102 version. I came across a unique opportunity to swap intake for intake with a buddy who had a c5 and would prefer the better fitment of the 92. The back story behind this intake was it was on a motor with bad oil blow by and was installed by a hackjob shop. Once I looked it over I realized I needed to order some parts. I ordered a new inner seal, new fuel pressure gauge, new thicker lower injector o rings (146020COR), and a fuel line adapter (640940). This was originally a grey intake somebody painted black. After I cleaned it up, installed the new stuff, and fixed a broken vacuum nipple on the back, I sand blasted and hand sanded it. Here it is ready for paint.

Looked around for something silver. Thought hey lets go a little darker then go bright on the lettering.

Got about 3 color coats on it.

Then about 3 coats of clear

Then dressed it out with injector, rails, tb, and yellow lettering

Then the install, man this thing barely fits. I removed the located dowels from the bottom of the intake and bent the pvc line. No grinding on the pump. Added a new silicone SD hose also. Excuse the dirty engine bay.

Another day, a little more accomplished. Pulled the old Hooker 1 7/8ths headers off. Slapped some paint on them and sold them locally.

Click the image to open in full size.

The new TSP setup, 2" header with a 3.5" collector. That means I'm making a new Y pipe.

Click the image to open in full size.

Ordered up some random pipe pieces and clamps.

In this picture you can see the Howe racing merge, 3.5 to 5 inch, and my old 4" bullet muffler I plan on reinstalling.

Click the image to open in full size.

This merge obviously was too big so I ended up cutting it back about 3 inches so it would mate up with 4 inch pipe.

Click the image to open in full size.

Here is the completed Y pipe and merge.

Click the image to open in full size.

Had it coated with high temp powder.

The red valve covers had seen better days so I decided to change the color scheme up some on the top side.

Click the image to open in full size.

Blasted them in the cabinet.

Click the image to open in full size.

Same wheel graphite color that went on the intake.

Click the image to open in full size.

Here are the packs and brackets. I touched up the red on the coils, blasted and painted the brackets graphite, and added stainless allen head bolts to hold the coils down. I also re-wrapped the tape around the harness.

Much better.

And my final surprise, 10 gallons of MS109. Gonna see if it picks up anything after being retuned for this fuel. Results soon!.

Ordered a set of MWC aluminum lower arms and matching panhard to replace the poly bushing stuff i had on the car before. More on that later, plus she is still trimming down....

Click the image to open in full size.

Cant wait to get these babies installed and maybe make another trip to the scales. I think the front is the 3/16ths and the rear is 1/4 with the dark tint.

Click the image to open in full size.

Couple of teaser pics, I plan on fully detailing the install, with all the install info, weights, for anyone wanting to try the install themselves. So far I can tell you the rear glass is difficult to remove, and the optic armor fits soooo nice.

So on my quest to get under the 3k lbs mark I placed an order through Midwest Chassis for 1/4" front clear, and 3/16th rear in dark tint. My original plan was to pay someone to do this but ended up changing my mind and deciding to tackle it on my own. I have zero glass experience of this kind, so I just had to wing it. I'm gonna give you all the tips that I learned along the way in case you want to try it yourself one day.

Here is when they arrived. The box was kinda beat up....I'm actually surprised they weren't damaged somehow.

Made a trip to harbor freight to pick up some windshield specific tools:

Click the image to open in full size.

This is the urethane glue I chose. No particular reason, I purchased it on ebay for about $10 per tube. You'll need about 2 per window.

Click the image to open in full size.

You may want to hire someone to remove the glass, I chose to give it a whirl. I started on the back first. Its tougher then the Youtube videos make it out, especially without scratching the car. You need to remove the perimeter molding first thing and the inside panels then use your various tools to separate the glass from the car. I finally decided fuck this.

Click the image to open in full size.

One of the things that makes the rear glass a real pain is in the corners there is two separate lines of urethane, which makes getting through that part super difficult to a beginning installer. You can see here, where the glass makes the curve at the bottom is a thick bead, then toward the upper edge there is another thin line.

Click the image to open in full size.

This is the edge of the fiberglass lip at the rear (basically right in front of the spoiler). You can see the wire tool was actually chipping away at the fiberglass. Grrrrrr

Click the image to open in full size.

This was the tool I selected to remove the urethane from the car to prep for install. I sharpened it first. Also, new urethane sticks to old urethane so there is no reason to remove every single bit. The most important thing is the surface is smooth and there is no excess old urethane left.

Click the image to open in full size.

Here is a better picture where you can see the double spread line that traces the corners of the glass.

Click the image to open in full size.

Here's the surface, prepped, sanded, and cleaned. I went over the entire flange with maybe 220 grit just so I knew it had some bite. The fiberglass seemed awfully slick and I was nervous about the urethane bonding.

Make sure you test fit first before you commit to the final install. I was also curious about whether it needed the stock molding back on it (it is no longer available for purchase). It looked fine with nothing, so that's what I ended up with.

These are velcro spacers x2 at the top of the window, I reinstalled them.

Lay your beads down following the factory lines.

I dropped the rear in by myself. Bottom is basically resting on the car with no room for molding, the top leading edge would be your preference. I think I'm going to leave it bare.

For the front, remove the molding that runs along both sides and the top.

Remove the cowl cover. Im also deleting the windshield wipers.

Remove the glass......

Whoops!

Same as the rear, nothing tricky up front. Prep and clean.

Make sure you test fit before you commit.

Find a work station, clean your stock molding, and reglue it to the lexan, tape it, and allow the glue to dry. I used black silicone. It is available new for about $75 if you want to replace it.

Click the image to open in full size.

Run your beads just like the back, and drop in place, remember to have a friend help, and tape up top to keep it from sliding down while it cures.

A couple hours later it looks like stock.

The windows weighed roughly 10lbs rear, and probably 17/18 for the front. They are supposed to save about 50/55lbs for the pair. My car should weigh, after the wiper delete, somewhere around 2970 or so. Overall they look really nice and fit really well. Im pleased with them.

The rear ended up wanting to lift along the lower lip, the adhesion wasnt great for whatever reason. It either didnt stick to the car, didnt stick to the lexan, or I didnt use enough urethane. At any rate, I had to improvise to ensure it didnt cause damage later down the road.

I also trimmed the cowl, mostly for ease of intake removal, and added a couple screws in the front glass just for good measure. You can see I left enough material for the stock plastic to be reinstalled and look pretty much as it came from the factory. I had to trim the cowl in multiple pieces (about 10) because I did it while the intake was still installed. It wasn't much fun.
