    Well the car runs and drives and I believe I fixed all the leaks and small ish... Its 85 in NY and the car ran cool around town, and I have the slim fan wired on all the time so thats good. I have the brake parts ordered so they should be here soon. Now the only issue Ive noticed, is that the car had great oil pressure, and it still does, at idle its about 25-30 psi hot, but it doesnt seem to want to get over 55psi, and wants to stay that way from 3000+ rpm... Im running 10w-30 and I still only have less than like 25 miles on the engine, do you guys think that could be trouble? I adjusted the clutch and the car feels much better to drive too

    etx14. I didnt really drive it much at all and im still not until i get things ironed out... The oil pressure is making me think maybe the screen or the filter is getting plugged or somthing

    Re: The time has come

    25-30psi at idle (1200 ish rpm) but it used to go to 65+ psi after 3000 warm and cold. Now it only seems to want to go to 50-55psi warm from 3000rpm+. Im concerned that somthing is wrong with either the pump or there is junk in the pickup etc...

    Re: The time has come

    I'll have to double check, but I believe it's in the 55-65 area. I'll get back to you on that one.

    I'm using 20-50 as well

    Re: The time has come

    Also I was thinking, I need to find the correct spark plug wires for my car. I have the cyngus obd1 conversion kit, so the NGK wires i have dont even come close to fitting, what are good wires that fit?

    Re: The time has come

    sounds like a oil pump issue. if anything you can shim the housing. Those togas are known for epic fail. yet some say its good. My oem at idle was 25-30 and at 3k it was at 40 and at full wot 98 plus. no matter where im at if i smash it it jumps to 95

    Re: The time has come

    like almost 3 years dood. I blew up the stock motor with my first turbo setup, then put in a built motor, had problems with that, sold my turbo setup almost entirely, started over and built an almost all new setup and here we are today.
