Poly mounts, 2.5 delivery pipe, alternator, DI, front brakes, control arms, ebrake...

...spark plugs, fuel filter, oil catch can, wheel bearing, fuel pressure regulator and oil change.

That's the list of parts I've replaced this winter break. I took it to Swedish Auto to have them fix my ebrake and wheel bearing, found out all of my control arms were shot, they replaced those also. Still waiting on the ebay catch can.
This is what I'm tackling tomorrow:

I've done it all but front brakes, I'm assuming:
Alternator: 1 hour
Poly Mounts: 1 hour
Black DIC: 5 minutes
Front brakes: 2 hours
Delivery pipe: .5-1 hour

A trade is in progress, I want to make sure it's all sorted out first though, I'm not interested in getting calls about this and that not working etc... don't want to make any enemies. For now the DP won't be staying with the car, just testing it out. After we put the clutch in i blew up all of the mounts.

As for the black DI I've been considering throwing a black one in there for a while. AFAIK they're more reliable, and I haven't heard a convincing argument that they're not safe to run in t5 cars. Also I've talked to a few tuned and untuned owners and they've seen only benefits from running the black DI.

I'll see what happens tomorrow with it and post my thoughts regarding the DI.

I did the alternator in my ex GF's 96 900s. I assume it's the same process for this one. The only part that bothered me was having to take it out between the strut tower and firewall. It was my first alternator, but I thought it was pretty simple and easy.

Andy, it's a 2.5 MP pipe that i picked up off of DIP. replaces everything from the IC to the intake manifold, including the throttle bend.

sometimes they're not too bad to do, others they can be a total pain.

kinda depends on the kind of day you're having

I'm gonna see if it opens up the top end more, I boost up to like 28 lbs but it tapers down to the 20-22 range in the high rpms. I want 28 lbs to 6k.

What's yours like? I wasn't sure if it was a unique issue unrelated. I think you'd be able to pipe it yourself. the best part is the throttle bend, reallly nice, might be expensive to Make:

Yeah, that would be the hardest part.


The flange is the sticking point...


No real point in doing it without a nice bend, and I have not gotten that part figured out yet.


I also think that getting the 3" GS elbow, then having 2.5" tubing go to it would be odd.


I already have a box of 2.5" tubing..

I think that's a pretty good option... Its probably better than stock, and readily available. If you've got the tubing all you would need is the bend, some couplers and a reducer...

Making the sensor holes and whatnot will be a pain, but that's what JB weld is for.


Also, there is a silicone section with a port for a BOV that I found...
