Between you and BlkCurrant, i have NEVER come across ANYONE with this much knowledge about the F23.
To say you are a scholar and a gentleman would be an understatement! :omgbd:

You give me too much credit. I installed the engine harness tonight, and I'm dumbfounded by the number of plugs that I have no idea where they belong! lol

Here's what i accomplished tonight:
-install check valve in line to brake booster
-run ground wires
-install lower radiator hose
-mount catch can and run hoses
-install distributor
-install engine wiring harness
-filled trans with fluid (no leaks! yay!)
-zip tie/hose clamp all vacuum lines


Still to be done:
-install the IC piping
-finish running wires for gauges and boost controller through the firewall
-install fuse box in engine bay
-charge and install battery
-install door handles and inner panels
-mount turbo oil feed lines and run to turbo
-finish down-pipe
-mount power steering reservoir and run hoses
-mount coolant reservoir and run overflow hose with new fitting
-mount catch can and run hoses
-mount BOV and run vacuum line
-fill fluids
-bleed brakes
-install hood heat shield

What is that for and where is that installed?

Check valve to prevent boost from entering the brake booster. I think the brake booster has one built in, but I don't know how well it holds up to high pressures, plus this gives me a line to T off of for other vacuum accessories like cruise control.

I don't know about all that. I learn from taking things apart and putting them back together and figuring out how they work...

Last two nights before tuning! I'm finishing up the mess of wiring for the gauges and EBC tonight. Got the wastegate flange tacked and mocked up the wastegate. Also got the WG dump tube cut and routed, though it's just venting straight down right now. If I get everything done tomorrow with time to spare, I might pull the down pipe off and attempt to merge the WG dump into it. I still finish the down pipe (kicking my ***) and get the IC piping beaded on the ends tomorrow. Pics to come!

This project is getting there...and me likey!

If you do merge the WG dump tube and the downpipe, be sure to have some sort of flex pipe there. The inconsistent heat expansion between the downpipe and the WG is a sure way to have welds crack. Something in the system should have the ability to flex.

Something like this: http://www.rx7club.com/2nd-generati...update-my-turbo-na-bridgeport-project-672207/

Good info. Unfortunately I don't have a small flex pipe on hand, so the wastegate is just dumping straight down for now. Great info in that link too. Enjoyed reading through it. :)
