Nope, you can leave it hooked up while the car warms up - that's most of what makes it so awesome, is it gives a place for air to go and keeps filling up the coolant as air comes out.

Sounds like you had an air pocket behind the thermostat. An air pocket won't register temp well on a temp gauge so that explains the low temps. When the thermostat finally opened it shot out steam...

Replace that O-ring between the 2 Y-pipe halves. The oily stuff looks like you have had a leak there.

Also, check the actuator on the Y-pipe. If you put your finger on one of the nipples, push...

Looks like it could be the EGR switch plug with the outer part of the connector's shell broken off. The non-Cali cars didn't have EGR switches so it's a not used plug.

People have tried to do custom twin turbo setups over the years. It's a real nightmare of plumbing, and I don't know of anyone that has done 2 aftermarket turbos with a sequential control system.

I'm not sure what the long term would be of running pre-turbo - that could prematurely erode the compressor blade of the turbo over time.

That is a good list. I would give yourself 2 weekends to knock it out.

Since you're changing coolant I would probably just remove the radiator totally from the car. That will give you a lot...

Remember, the boost controller is relatively dumb, it has no idea what your spring rate is or anything. You're just setting up how it cycles that solenoid.

The manual seemed to state the set% is the duty cycle of the solenoid. 0% = wide open, no restriction, 100% = fully closed. It's restricting the pressure going to the wastegate that opens the...

IMHO a lot of the coolant seal problems have been from the stock design of the FD. Mazda made the car run HOT - the fan switch wouldn't kick on until 107 deg. C stock and you could easily see that...

I don't have direct experience with the Profec B, so you could be right on the start boost.

If possible, try and set up the boost controller doing 3rd gear pulls. The extra load helps.

Those temps are OK for a heat soak. When you start the car and coolant starts circulating again the temps would drop rapidly.

The no-start is a trickier problem, not sure what's up with that but...

I don't know if it really matters in one spot or the other but the factory location is the front housing. Probably doesn't make a difference but it's worth putting in the "correct" spot.
