Getting down to crunch time.

Few small things I need to take care of.

PCV hose connected (this just threads back into the intake pre-turbo or post turbo?) Also does the AIT go pre or post turbo?

BPV connected/installed
-Thinking of purchasing either This (http://www.siliconeintakes.com/product_info.php?cPath=11&products_id=456&osCsid=966b0d7092e899f4162b98b27065f204) or This pipe (http://www.siliconeintakes.com/product_info.php?cPath=11&products_id=452&osCsid=966b0d7092e899f4162b98b27065f204) to connect the stock st215 bpv on.

Fluids filled
-Toyota red coolant, ford's friction modifer and something for the trans oil as my other thread and some PS fluid

Couple spark plugs

Replace the alternator with the st215 alt (found out my 162 alt is dead). I'll be pigtailing the st215's connectors off the stock st162 so I can use either a caldina or celica alternator.


Other than that, I just need to sort out my shifter issue (which shouldn't be hard) and I'll be running. Then just a matter of the exhaust lol.

Did I miss anything here?

prime the oil system by removing the EFI fuse and cranking the motor until the guage registers pressure, then put the fuse in and start it.

Other than that I usually just go over everything with a flashlight to focus my attention on details. Check for any wires that might need looming or be on anything hot, etc. thats about it.

Good luck

I have already done the oil priming.

I do not know though what the pressure was (I think the st215 on utilizes a dummy light and not an actual oil pressure as in the 162). I will do this again after I get an oil press gauge also.

well you need to do it right before you start it, otherwise you have alot of drainback when it sits. Mainly you just dont want a dry turbo when it fires up. As long as you saw any pressure at all you should be fine, but yeah a mechanical gauge is helpful.
