Where is your fuel pump grounded? If power is just battery -> relay -> pump then there shouldn't be much that can go wrong on that side as long as the relay is good.

I have relocated battery in rear storage bin and a breaker switch. The breaker is mostly to stop parasitic losses from killing my battery if I don't drive the car for a month, but I imagine in the...

Is it cutting out pretty hard like the ignition can't fire spark plug or it is just that the boost drops off and you don't have enough power to push past 120?

You will very possibly see boost creep without the waste gate being ported. What do you have for a cat/mid pipe now? Maybe if you have stock intake/intercooler that will be enough to keep the boost...

opening up exhaust will get the turbo spooling faster. Really, the best exhaust after the turbo is probably no exhaust, but you of course couldn't drive that without catching stuff on fire.

Yes it is worth it. With a ported engine you can make more power at lower boost levels even with stock twins. For example, my stock twins made 340hp at the wheels running 11psi. Prior to porting I...

There are so many things it could be. Tiny pinhole leak somewhere will spray a tiny stream that can be pretty well directed to a place like this from further away than you might think.

I've run Odyssey PC925 in my FD storage bin since I got the car in 2000. IMO it's a much better size for a street car than the PC680 that a lot of guys run but still much smaller and lighter than the...

Sweet! An XT was my first car, but it was just fwd and no turbo. My friend had the turbo awd but it was automatic and I think the turbo was seized, it was much slower than mine.
Nice project!
