What did those poly bushings for the inner tie rod come from? Want to replace mine but it doesn't look like anyone makes any.

Oh, they were some PU parts locally made laying around my mechanic's shop. They were close, but had to be machined to be made to fit.

Not Powerflex.

I'm not 100% satisfied with them because the sleeve is not the same diameter as stock, but works for now.
It would be better to use the old steel sleeves and pour PU around them.

Been a long time since updates and plenty of things have happened.

In June, spent a bunch on new EBC rotors and EBC Red Stuff pads all around. Sure makes a difference, but not major. Unless working the brakes hard. They bite harder when warmed up. Got the stock calipers painted red.

Also got some more bushings from AK MS. Front and rear ARB and snub mount.

The fuel tank has been redone. It's actually bolted to the chassis now and has a rollover valve on the vent! Redid the pump set up in the tank and relay wiring. Still not totally happy with it.

All rubber lines have been replaced with AN-6 PTFE hoses and I got a great deal on a Fuelab regulator and billet fuel rail from speedingG60.
All installed now with a 100psi fuel pressure sensor. I have also installed a post-turbo pressure sensor and put the EGT sensor in the same place to use as post-turbo temp sensor. Works great. In full boost, outlet temps can hit up to 180c, IM IAT shows 52c or so.

The stock PCV system has been completely eliminated and got the block breather adapter from IE that connects to an AN-10 push-on going to the catch can.

Coming up is the turbo swap. Bought a SAAB TD04HL-15T, no shaft play. Got a cast EM with T25 flange. Should be good for 300 crank. It'll run out of injector at 3 bar base pressure, but might squeeze by if going to 4 bar which corresponds to 727cc.

Learning more about tuning. The tune is getting better, IMO. No idea where I am on the Dunning-Kruger curve.

However, the clutch now slips. It has 50,000kms of abuse on it so I guess that is OK life span. Will get it redone when the turbo swap is being done.
