Ugh I know I want to so bad. Can't Vtune it because Brian won't tune it unless I also install water/meth because too much knock otherwise (due to the extra weight of the platform). Thinking about going for the Maptun, it's slightly tamer.

Video of first crank after putting it back together (first few cranks are with fuel pump fuse removed to build oil pressure first). Also, no chain rattle after that first rattle (oil needed to reach up there). Smoke is from penetrating oil burning off (had to replace a turbo stud). Can't say I didn't hold my breath for this part!

Just splurged on the Maptun tune from Swedish Motorsports - Maptun is having an Easter sale and it was 25% off so that pushed me over the edge.
