Also, for the coolant leak, we found it this weekend. It's leaking from the coolant temperature sensor on the radiator. Since the sensor comes with the radiator (N26 anyways), it'll have to be replaced. Finally... I get to use this CPO lol.

EDIT: Also, yeah, the warning was the low coolant light. I missed the initial problem (somehow. The damn thing is right at the top) but my buddies at the shop helped me pressure test it to be sure that was the only leak. Considering it took a month to drain, we're confident that it is.
Gotcha. Nice that it'll be covered under warranty, cool to see a FBO car that still uses the CPO lol.

You only void the parts you mod. So, that'd be drivetrain and suspension for me.

Yah no I understand that, I just think it's kinda funny that you can have a car that's so heavily modified and still make valid warranty claims. Everyone just assumes that as soon as you make a modification the warranty goes out the window, but that's clearly not true.

Setup so far:
Custom twinscroll Mani with a BW EFR 7670 turbo.
Custom air intake with AEM dry flow filter
Stage 2 lpfp
GFB DV+ kit
ATM intercooler with FTP CP's,
Custom Dyno Map and jb4 for control on e85 and pump 92
ARP upgraded Rod bolts for protection,
Muffler delete with quad 3.5" tips
E90 Southbend stage 2 clutch upgrade.
Stock sport shocks but with H&R super sports on the front and regular Sports in the rear powder coated red to match. (Back shocks are too soft so might upgrade to the Koni FSD or Bilstein setup.
Going with 225/45 r18 Front and 255 45(maybe 50) r18 rear. Get that meaty looking back like the car is fast, haha
Currently at around 380whp. Shooting for 420-450whp but my tuner says engine may let go if I push it without internals and tranny might let go as well.

How much of a PIA was it to install the rod bolts?

So, I decided to upgrade the turbo this week, because after installing my DV+, we noticed the turbo leaking smoke. It still had life in her, but I decided to preemptively replace it. I went with the MHI Big Turbo, since a new turbo, manifold, and wastegate was appealing for the price. I wasn't a huge fan of the Frankensteins offered atm. Once Halim@HCP gets back to me, we can get the tune rolling out! Going to be shooting for ~23PSI again, but going to cap it off around 300whp/350wtq. I'll update this again when the tune is there!
How did the bigger turbo work out? This is intriguing me...

Worked out great. Unfortunately, I haven't had the amount of time as I thought I would've towards building the car out more.
