I assume there isn't enough room to put on a longer coupler with more than one clamp? Not ideal long term but figured it can get you by before you pull the bumper.

Some tame 2 step action

Also wired in my boost dial, this way I can change the tune on the fly

Finally ditched the dream of a draft style PCV can (pulls vacuum between air filter and turbo inlet) [Doesn't work too well once you have a very efficient air filtyer]

Used one of the ports from unnamedperfshop made


Check valve so I don't pressurize the catch can.


Pulls a lot of vaccum across the top end of motor, so thats a start.

Some confirmation that 2step and boost commanded works.

Well, had a dream I could fix my lack of working dipstick over this weekend. Lesson there, there's never hope when working on LTX cars.



Tried my best to be safe working on gravel, snagged some scrap home depot wood for 7 bucks and made some bases.





You can see here how the lokar cable was sitting on this flat piece and the "tongue" part of the dipstick was stuck udner that lip.


In the end, I managed to properly measure how much oil is needed before it hits windage tray. Which for anyone who is concerned, is 6.25 qts, and with a full oil filter, system total is 7qt.

Downside, I could not manage to make the lokar dipstick work, would not clear past the main cap. So amazon claims to be delivering a OEM one today and maybe it will work.

As a Sunday update, amazon pulled thru and the OEM dipstick tube fits (after trimming) and the OE style dipstick now touches oil and comes out.

Knowing how much oil you have seems like a good thing

It’s either full, empty, or somewhere in between.

oh wow, I now see what the dipstick interference in the pan was. Glad you got that sorted out, must be a big relief. Good stuff

Now enjoy the regret of wondering why it needs more oil than a rotary.
