Girlfriend got me the Gen 2 CS wheel for my birthday. Installed it late Friday night. God damn it makes the car feel much more upscale.

I finally pulled the fuel pump to see what internals were in there. I think the car has autotech internals, based on pictures I've seen comparing the different ones. Can anyone confirm this or help me out with identifying them? I didn't remove the internals from the pump because I thought I had an 18mm deep socket, but apparently I don't.

Well they arent factory so what does it matter?

FWIW They looks like autotechs though

I guess if you have always had them it would be tough to tell the difference. Mine couldnt handle a stage 1 OTS map without an upgrade...

I've only had the car for like 2 1/2 weeks. I got an AP and did a stage 1 OTS map which says you can do that with a stock car, and did some datalogs. I specifically wanted to see what the HPFP actual pressure was, and I thought it was pretty good (not going under 1600psi at WOT), but the car is stock otherwise (stock intake, stock exhaust, etc.). I was told the only way to know for sure, was to pull 'em and look.

Yeah I was running a full intake with stage 1 tune and it kept falling on its face. I was watching Hpfp pressure and it hit 700psi at one point I guess the stock intake must now flow enough...

Just installed Sachs struts and shocks over the weekend. Settled with new Oreilly strut top hat mounts and bearing. Bump stops were fucked so that was replaced with Moog stops and bellows.

What I learned: DO NOT SPREAD THE STRUT TO KNUCKLE MOUNT TOO FAR! Took forever to bolt it together. C-clamp method did not work too well so I smacked it with a BFH and ratcheted it in at the same time the blows hit. Driver side went easier.

Could be auto techs but without actually seeing the piston I'm not willing to confirm, the big end of the piston will say what they are. I believe kmd use a similar locking mechanism as the AT, so I'd pull that spring off (properly) and have a look at the piston

KMD does have the same locking mechanism but the finish on the Piston is different

Pardon the CS box. Its just what they came in.

My biggest concern was if they were stock internals or not. I would have taken the internals out of the pump, but I didn't have an 18mm socket like I thought I did. So, I just hoped I could take a bunch of pictures and hopefully someone could confirm if they were stock or not. One day, when I have the right tool, I'll take them back out and re-inspect.

This is from my install day. KMD internals are in the pump.

Got my MS3 professionally detailed today, then brought it home and changed the engine oil and filter. Saw that the forward part of the inner fender liner that is supposed to cover the fog light area is missing. Plan to order a replacement inner fender liner.

So let me begin by saying that I was pissed, but honestly I am impressed. Fuck dealerships who do my oil changes, Firestone who balance my tires, or the body shop guy who painted my fender. I think I know which of the three did the below, but I will be keeping my eye on my damn RSB brackets anytime I go in for service now.

To make a long story short, last week I noticed clunking, looked under my car and noticed my RSB bracket was broken (pic 4). It dawned on me about 30 minutes later, I installed a Hotchkis RSB bracket about three years ago. Why is there an OEM bracket on my car?! I never took my Hotchkis RSB off, so I can only assume some jackhole took them off my car while being serviced and me, being somewhat oblivious to life's curveballs, most likely drove with OEM brackets for the past 50k miles (judging by the rust).

After inquiring about my brackets to the dealerships and shops last week without luck, I ordered new JBR brackets and Moog endlinks.

Pic 1 is of my setup 3 years ago INCLUDING HOTCHKIS RSB BRACKETS DAMNIT
Pic 2 may help someone. That is how I took off the top nut of the driver side end link. For the passenger side, do the same thing but you'll need to use a normal Hex Allen Wrench instead of the T-Handle type in this picture
pic 3 is of the T handle for the driver side end link nut. It's pretty tight, but it fits.
pic 4, the broken OEM bracket that started this whole mess.

Can't help but laugh now though. Honestly, who steals a bracket?

Edit: At the silver lining, I did have an excuse to buy a dremel to cut off a stubborn rusted end link nut that attached to the RSB. I also sanded and repainted some rusty spots on the RSB.

Just installed the CS rear motor mount and bpv hose with one from CS as well. So far so good. While doing said work I found my stock turbo inlet pipe needed tightening as it was already working itself off the turbo. FIXED!

Got all of the wiring and tubing squared away on my boost gauge. I went with larger tubing from the BPV line to the boost sensor than what was provided with the gauge. Since the clamps wouldn't be tight enough to hold I slid a portion of the clear tubing onto both ends of the filter and the sending unit. I then cut the clear tubing flush with the opening. The new silicone slipped over pretty tight and the clamps are holding great now. I drilled a hole in the side of my battery box and inserted a small rubber grommet that allows the sending unit to rotate if i need to unplug it for box removal. I used a shortened screw and nut from a computer case fan to tie it all together. I still need to run the illumination wire so the gauge will change color when the lights are on. When my oil sandwich plate gets here I'll hook up the oil pressure gauge.

The new silicone slipped over pretty tight and the clamps are holding great now. I drilled a hole in the side of my battery box and inserted a small rubber grommet that allows the sending unit to rotate if i need to unplug it for box removal. I used a shortened screw and nut from a computer case fan to tie it all together. I still need to run the illumination wire so the gauge will change color when the lights are on. When my oil sandwich plate gets here I'll hook up the oil pressure gauge.
This looks a lot like how my boost dependent meth kit is set up. Except yours is much, much prettier.

Installed Koni STR.T shocks along with Corksport springs and new top hats/bushings/bump stops on the fronts. Put some StopTech rotors on the rear along with pads. Car rides a bit better now and sits just right. Now to change my RMM out and sell the CP-E stage 2.

Big day for the MS3 today! I finally got around to swapping the injector seals. I went with the Corksport seals. Lo and behold, the injectors had no seals on them! No wonder the popping/cracking sound was so bad. While doing that, I installed a JBR thermal intake gasket and Damond Motorsports EGR delete kit. And finally, a stubby antenna for the roof completed the job for the day.

The pictures of the injectors that are all dirty are seconds after I removed them from the car. You'll see there's no seals on them.

How many miles on your car if you don't mind me asking? I was thinking of doing this while the weather is cooler here in Florida.

The odometer just hit 65,000 miles. But, the engine was overhauled by a previous owner around 47,000 miles.

Which part of Florida are you in? I'm in Florida too, and the weather was perfect for it today.

Just did spark plugs the other day, Denso ITV20s, and gapped them to .032". So far so good. Just clipped the 100K.

I find that hard to believe...the seals are metal and don't just disappear. Did you just get the car? Maybe they were stuck in the bores and you didn't notice?

I've had the car for a little over a month, and it's always made the popping sounds for as long as I've had it. I figured they were just blown. I looked all in there and couldn't find anything. I could see if maybe one was off and stuck in the bores, but all four injectors didn't have any type of seal on them. That to me looks like someone didn't put them in.

I agree with @anavrinIV; the seals can't just disappear. Was the car modded when you got it. If it was stock, I really doubt the previous owner did seals.

What would the symptoms be of having double seals, I assume you wouldn't be able to get them in?

When I got the car, I assumed it was stock. I didn't really know enough about the car then to really look at it to determine otherwise. Then I started noticing aftermarket parts on the car, like a CP-E RMM that needed to be replaced. The HPFP internals have been upgraded to Autotechs. It looked like an aftermarket intake has been removed and the stock one put back on. So, I'm thinking the car has been modded in the past. The engine was overhauled at around 47,000 miles, and the odometer just hit 65,000. But like I said, I think it's weird that all four injectors didn't have any seals on them. I don't think they disappeared; I think the shop that did the overhaul may not have put injector seals in. The injectors went in with no problem. The popping noise before was so bad, I just assumed they were blown, but now I think they just weren't installed.
