Well big update on the car since i haven't posted in a while, car was running great, then i started to loose 3 QTs of oil with in 50!!! miles!!!
called blouch and they said my motor was trashed and that i had too much crank case pressure (which is not possible with the crawford AOS)
so i decided to take off my turbo and send it out to get rebuilt locally
Got it back after only $400 (new seals re balanced, and before tare down shaft play was with in spec!)
my car still smoked after re installing, so i drove it to my work, and decided to take my 6 speed out to swap my other 6 speed from my old car (which has 5000 miles on it) with my ACT 6 puck clutch into this one.
upon fixing everything and re installing the other trans it STILLL!!!! smoked! so I gave up because time is limited at my work for me to work on my personal vehicle. Car got towed to SUBA performance for a compression and leak down test.
results were 120 all around and 8-11% leak down which for a stock motor is great!
They did fix a couple boost leaks, and i found out my BOV decided to fail.... which is awesome....
so it needs a re tune....
