Decided to start off my build thread finally. I got the car May 22, 2021 with just under 8k miles. I've been FBO and tuned since July and made 301whp and 321wtq at the time. Got a custom license plate immediately, NGAGE. If you get the reference then I enjoy you. Anywhere, here's my ever changing mod list.

I mentioned in the post I was tuned since July. I don't think you can get anywhere near 300whp without an actual tune or wmi setup.

Karma isn't always fair.

Fuel injector for cylinder 1 seems to have gone out. Code P0201000(Injector Circuit/Open-Cylinder 1) came on during a WOT pull. Was able to clear the pending code and it operated normally.

Shop is going to replace the injector under warranty, since the intake manifold has to be removed, they are also going to install my boomba intake manifold spacer. They will also be replacing my HPFP with the SXTH one, so I won't be able to get any fuel logs prior to install. All of this should be completed Monday.

Anyone know if this vented hood can be washed like normal? The vents on the right right above the airbox so that's a bit of a concern. The inside hood cover panel from the stock one does not have holes to add to this new hood which would prevent water from seeping through, but defeat the purpose of allowing heat to escape so it kind of makes sense why it was done that way.

Also, fuel injector replaced from my last post via warranty, so that was good. Did not get the sxth pump installed at that time but got the boomba intake spacer in. SXTH HPFP goes in today.

Reached out to SoCalGarageWorks, apparently I can wash the car like normal. I'll just try to avoid spraying water directly into the vents.

SXTH HPFP installed today. When I sent my datalogs over to them, they reported everything looked good except the fuel pressure drop. Going to send them more logs with this now installed and see if that issue has been resolved. If so, I'll be going ahead and purchasing an aftermarket improved LPFP which will seem to complete everything I can do for proper fuel delivery.

EN Turbo or Hybrid EN turbo upgrade coming soon once I am 100% sure all kinks are resolved.

Saw someone do 405whp and 420wtrq on a VN with a stock EN Turbo. That seems like they are just going for peak numbers, so I'll try to get a tune to give me a modest 385whp and then upgrade to an XClutch to keep reliability in place.

Next year I'll be building the motor:

  • Forged Rods & Pistons
  • High Performance Exhaust & Intake Valves
  • Performance head studs

Hopefully by then we'll have some aftermarket head gaskets so I don't the concern of running the stock one haunting my sleep.
