finally got around to fixing the hatch... kinda...

i decided to go with an oem pan just to make things simple... and then realized the xcessive pan had the brace incorporated into the upper pan, meaning the transmission, clutch, and flywheel needed to be removed just to get to the back two bolts.




i threw in the towel and tagged in my buddy (with the z32) and had him do it lol ended up giving him the green light to whack the brace off the pan and he popped that shit right off. while he was at it, i also had him replace the xcessive motor mount brackets with some oem units, which shifted the motor to the left and up about 3/4", paired with the oe pan, it all sits about 2" higher than before, high above the crossmember and swaybar




a side effect of raising the motor though, is now the rad hose and fmic piping setup is all fucked up. gotta rebuild the hoses to be about 1/2" longer and either have a custom coldpipe built or try to squeeze a 45° coupler in there. AND gotta figure out what's going on with my altenator, but aside from that it's good to go. took it out for a little rip up and down the street. slow, but feels solid.

SOOOO CLOSE!

some parts for the k came in. started messing around with it a bit.


finally scored a brix and a driver side mo rail. pure comfort!


after a bit of research i found the correct alt. previous owner removed all numbers from the alt so figuring out it was a quest 125 (and which design) took a minute. swapped the front piece since the old one had been "machined" (or hacksawed???) to work on ka.



also, pulled the whole rad setup. tired fo dealing with stupid mishimoto shit and an fittings. new koyorad and oem shroud on the way.

busted ass this week to get the car ready for an event this weekend. i replaced the thermostat housing and chopped off the -an fitting from the upper water neck (and re-sealed it with green locktite) so i could switch to a koyorad, oe shroud, and gk clutch fan. turned the car on and there was a weird noise. thought it was the alt for some reason, but eventually found the vacuum cap for the brake booster was split and causing a crazy whistle noise. i had to frankenstein the cold side intercooler piping to clear the new rad hose and then bled the cooling system. i couldn't manage to get it to go any higher than 174°f even with cardboard in front of the rad. the thermostat is supposed to open at 170° so i figured it'd be good to go.



ran out of time to wash the car and couldn't find anywhere to rinse it off at the track




i was the first one on the track. i spun out twice, forgetting how bad the front rubs without tubs hahaha

temps looked good and the car was running great so i went out for a couple more runs with the run up dudes. made me notice how quick the hatch is. seriously feels just as fast as the coupe, if not faster, granted the hatch was on 235 rsr's instead of 225 kr20's.

i went to go back out and the car wouldn't start. after looking around the engine bay and checking fuses, i realized i clutch kicked so hard i broke the little plastic bushing thing that hits the clutch safety switch. started the car and started driving, but my water temp started shooting up super quickly. i shut the car down and noticed the thermostat housing was leaking.



i waited for the car to cool down and checked the coolant level and it seemed to be fine. turned it back on and the temps stabilized around 198°. as soon as i started driving the temps started climbing slowly and then shot up to 260° out of nowhere! the stock temp gauge stayed at below the halfway mark this entire time btw. no idea wtf was going on. i'm guessing a big ass bubble in the cooling system?

let the car cool down again so i could move it back to the pits and attempt to bleed it again. when i started it, a weird noise started coming from the front of the head. sounded like timing chain rattle at first, but then got super sporadic, like something metallic was bouncing around in there.

popped the oil cap off and looked in the valve cover, but couldn't see anything. i decided to err on the side of caution and called it a day. hopefully it isn't anything serious. sick of this shit

thanks!

i went and took a look at it this weekend. let the car idle for a bit to chase down the location of the sound. really seemed to be coming from the front cover/head area. pulled the valve cover and the chain guides looked brand new, as well as the head (not a spec of sludge or carbon buildup in sight). looked around and couldn't find any metal shavings or loose nut or bolt anywhere so i put the valve cover back on. figured the next logical source was the water pump, which would also explain the overheating issue. pulled the belt and started up and sure enough the sound went away. the water pump looks brand new so i'm not sure why or how it went bad, but it seems like the impeller possibly may have fallen off, which would be extra strange... guess i'll find out next weekend when i get to pull apart the cooling system for the 6,000th time

i pulled the water pump off yesterday and it looked totally fine. went ahead and replaced it with a new oem one anyway. also installed a swirl pot to avoid any future bleeding issues. conveniently the fittings supplied in the pbm kit are the same size as the accessory port in the koyorad and then just drilled and tapped the upper water neck.



and finally got around to wiring/plumbing my boost gauge, which required a little bit of assistance lol


should hopefully FINALLY be good to go for the next drift event in 2 weeks.

whelp, i finally drove it on the street for real from the track to the hotel and back twice (about 10 min each way) and everything seemed to be in working order. solid temps, motor running perfect, boost stable up to 7psi, afr looking perfect...



got about 4 runs in and then it started cutting fuel at/near wot. checked the fuel filter, maf, tps, changed the fpr vacuum source, nothing changed. i could do one run and it would work fine, but the second run, it would sporadically cut fuel.



one of the rear tires started leaking randomly when i got home. so i finally put these 18's on for the first time. sbc is such an amazing color sparked a little motivation to fix the car



another 2 weeks until the next event (that my team and run up are hosting) to figure out wtf is going on with this heap of shit. sure would be nice to get a full event in before the end of the year

Similar thing happened to my buddy. his issue ended up being a rusted out gas tank. Rust would clog the fuel sock causing starvation but when the car sat for 10 minutes it would be fine again

hmm possible. i don't recall the tank being particularly rusty when i upgraded the fuel pump, but that would make sense. i'll have to give it a look thanks!
