Engine Pull Déjà vu

Once more the temperatures cooperated and I resumed the work pulling the motor back out to identify where the intake leak was at.

It had not been pushed back far enough onto the compressor inlet, so that when it was tightened it merely started to wrap the silicone connector around the inlet, allowing some air to escape during the intake pressure check.

Tomorrow I’m going to hook up the rest of the intake, Intercoolers and Bipipe, and run another pressure check to verify that all of the clamps are now tightened correctly and adequately – then back to work putting the motor in the car again.
