    Hi! I'm from the Internet

    Hell I wouldn't charge you much more then that for ol blue and he runs great. I rebuilt the engine less the 10k miles ago. Now he will probably need a turbo soon as I am starting to get a little smoke under boost and it has a little shaft play. But it still spools up fine. The price on E3 16g's has gotten ridiculous so I just as well replace the one on there with a Fp green or a Fp 68hta. It has enough fuel system to support a larger turbo then the 16 that's on there.


    And the 2g rs/gs's weren't that bad. I had a 99 10th anniversary Gs. It had 30k miles on it when it got totaled by a big friggin' truck. I loved that car. 30+ mpg, quiet, and cool looking. Here him is about a week or so before he was crushed.

    Oh and my little play toy that doesn't get driven much and by no one but me.

    I know people hate ebay turbos but have a friend local that turboed his honda (yea I know...) and with his forged internals hes pushing around 18 PSI with a 220$ ebay knock off 16G and after 5000 miles its still holding up well with no shaft play or smoking. I believe thought its like a gamble on the quality.


    Mine quit running on my birthday of last year and I put everything you can think of on it to get it running but nothing worked. I ended up selling it for 800$ and that guy still has not gotten it running yet either. I keep telling him to do a compression test which I never did cause that the ONLY thing I can think of. I got NO CEL what so ever but would not rev past 3000RPMs

    Yea I have never used link but I have heard it was alot better than the SAFC/keydriver combo.

    Don't get me wrong man, I have a plan to build atleast 1 car with a 4g63 whether that be a DSM or some type of RWD car. I don't know if you have seen this website below but they do WONDERS with the 4g63 in other cars!

    http://projectzerog.com/

    BTW man, here was my DSM

    There's a vid on youtube of a Fox body mustang with a 4G63 in it. Pretty wild setup. That was a nice looking Gs.

    Honestly I wished I would have done more research before buying it. I made the mistake of doing the research afterwards finding out that I didn't have the good engine HAHAHA

    I was talking to CP a week ago and I mentioned of a 1G here local in a salvage lot. It has been sitting there for 5 years and does not show signs of body damage but I didn't look under the hood to see if it was 2.0 or 1.6

    May call and see what they would take to remove it from their lot

    GT35R @ 28 psi :D on LINK :p For being a decently sized turbo, this thing spools quick!

    Now, I think we completely hi jacked this thread. Let's lay off the DSM talk boys, we always have Tuners for that :laugh:

    Actually yes! I just purchased a new back plate and screws right from Swiftech for $16 including shipping via USPS Priority mail and received everything Thursday.

    Thursday evening I got the water cooling system all put together and currently have the system running to release all air and make sure there are no leaks. :rockout:

    Well I figure this after noon will be a good time to get that puppy finished. :respect:

    Well now the fucking thing will not post!!!!!

    Have pulled all the un needed items such as hard drive, optical drive, video card, and one stick of ram. Nothing! Powers up for about 3 damn seconds and then shuts down. I am at my wits end with this fucking build to be honest. It has been nothing but bullshit from the start.

    Now I am back to the drawing board and going to have to pull the damn motherboard back out, and bench test it without the water cooling I guess. The fucked part is, I don't know if it is the motherboard or the chip! Have tried 3 different brands of ram and still nothing.

    This thing is really pissing me off to no end at this point!!!!

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Once you get it going it will be all good and you will step back from it and say, and I quote, "gotcha ya stupid bastard, I will never build another Intel system for as long as I live, you ungrateful pos. I have never had these problems with amd."

    Then you'll start looking looking for parts for the next build.

    Oh yea I know that being aggravated will not work and that is why it is still in the case. I am going to have to pull the motherboard and bench test it. I just have a gut feeling the damn motherboard is junk!

    :laugh: Yea both of these Sandy Bridge systems have been a pain in the ass.

    No, been so busy this week that I just have been beat when getting home. It is still in the case waiting for me to pull the damn thing and check crap out. :banghead:

    Looking at the motherboard in the case, I can however see that the back plate for the water block is mashed against the damn motherboard tray! I may have to mod the case and cut that opening up a bunch more. I am really hoping that is what it is. Man I don't want to have to PM Paulieg and tell him that the motherboard he sent me is junk! I hope he registered it though if it is so I can RMA that damn thing. It is either that or the frigging 2500K chip! :banghead:

    anyone have a spare 1155 chip they can send me to test before I assume it is the motherboard? Of course I am going to pull the board and bench test it without it being mounted before anything.
