We shall see. I trust dealer mechanics about as much as I would trust Elliot from Turdblown and Mazsport Scott to handle my investment portfolio.

If it wasn't fuel, your car would not run at all. My old lady put diesel in her Jetta and that thing didn't run for a second. Could it have been fuel mixed with some type of particulates that clogged your fuel filter causing the fuel pump to strain to move fuel through it?

Yeah I'm not sure, I got through the top quarter of my tank just fine again from the dealership, now it is starting to do it again. The mechanic said to try and get through as much of that tank as possible then refill. He's saying it's water in the fuel and is boiling as it goes through the pump causing the pressure drop. I'm going I go buy some fuel dryer and see if that helps at all. They said of it doesn't stop doing it after this tank imi can bring it. Ack and they will check out the fuel pump again for free

BTW - Greddy fix #2 works better if you connect to the last charge pipe before the throttle plate . Just sayin
I am bit lost with the vacuum lines.

So Iam thinking of installing the stock Greddy Kit without the Boost controller.

1) Even without the boost controller you can still weld a fitting just before the TB (and after the BOV) ? connect the waste gate to the welded new fitting, instead of what MM proposed?

2) And the BOV vacum connect to the line where the VFAD was, post TB. Put a T fiiting in this line for the boost gauge?

would that summ it up? Would really appreciate your help

1/ Either is fine ........ just before throttle gives you a slightly flatter boost profile , but not a lot in it tbh.

2/yep

Yes to both. Teeing into that nipple that is Pre TB and Post BOV will allow your wastegate to account for pressure losses throughout the IC and piping.

So I got these babies installed today after a fender roll. Unfortunately it poured rain the entire day so I couldn't get some cleaner pics with better lighting . I'm super happy with fitment, they are the exact flush I was looking for! The darker lighting in these photo's don't do them the justice they deserve, on a nicer day I will get some nice GoPro shots. The place I got to roll my fenders applied a coat of rust protection on the fenders after rolling them so I can't wash the car for a few days..

No for some reason my image hosting site won't upload some of the photos off of my phone, just waiting to get back to my computer and upload from there.

Oh damn Jesse, that's looking good! Liking the sides

Those were a spot on choice for wheels. It's coming along nicely!

I'm not sure what you mean, are you looking at the post I made from before I rolled the fenders?

Thanks man! Hoping I can get some higher quality photos with my GoPro once I get back to Edmonton tonight and not in underground parking.

Haha, oh yeah I agree, the brightness of the car makes it hard for the camera to contrast the black wheels; they look waaaay darker in the photos than in real life. I'm hoping my GoPro footage will help that out; will upload some more pics tonight.

Good news though, with these 255's and the +30mm offset I had my stock wheels loaded up in the back seat/trunk to haul them to a buddy's garage for storage; and my wife and myself in the car taking some pretty hard corners and I wasn't able to hear any rubbing at all; quite pleased with that. Suspension is all within factory specs; may have to attempt 265's for the next set of rubbers but that will be very, very tight without a slight camber adjustment.

Just wanted to double check everything. I have my header with the turbo already installed on the car. so hopefully my car will finally see some boost soon.

As my kit is used, previous owners drilled into the outlet pipe MazdaManiac style. And also i have to get a new C-6 pipe as the one i have is completely messed up.

1) If Running without the boost controller. I connect one vacuum line to the Waste gate actuator and the other end goes to the fitting on the outlet MM Style. it runs straight? nothing else connects to it?

2) I look on the greddy instructions and the c-6 pipe before the TB has a nipple for a vacuum line ? anything should go in there? I will be getting a new c-6 Pipe so would i be needing this nipple? As you guys answered before . Vfad goes into the BOV, and put a T fitting for the boost gauge.


Am i missing anything else on the turbo related vacuum lines?


1) and 2) are not connected by vacuum, since i am planning to run no boost controller?


Would highly appreciate your comments.

1. Running with no boost controller you need only one of those nipples (the one on C6 or the one on turbo oulet) and run a line from Wastegate actuator to one of them. My recommendation is running the line from Wastegate actuator to C6 nipple so the actuator gets it's signal after all the losses through the IC and piping.

2. I believe jet air hose goes to this nipple on C6, that is where I Tee'd my Wastegate signal to before I had an EBC and had the turbo outlet nipple capped. See Brett's link and Greddy instructions.
