I've been driving the car for the past several weeks and it's been doing pretty god, but of course I did find a few more issues that need to be addressed.

First, the radiator was making contact with the AC condenser and rubbed a hole through the fins, causing a pretty serious leak, which I just discovered today. I ordered a new aluminum radiator and it is parked until that is replaced.

Next, there is an issue with the boost. It builds boost, up to about 16 psi, but it doesn't hit hard. It also makes a whine sound while under boost. It feels and sounds like a boost leak, but I haven't been able to find it yet. I will do some more boost leak testing while it's down for the radiator replacement. The other option is that it could be an issue with the turbo. But it feels solid, with no shaft play, so I'll keep looking for a boost leak in the mean time.

Another thing is that when I start it up it doesn't roar to life but kind of fumbles around for a few seconds after it's running. It sounds week at first start up. I pulled the plugs today to check for fouling and check the gaps. The plugs are NGK BPR8ES that were gapped at .024 but I moved them up to .026 (I didn't notice any change to start up afterwards). It's most likely a tuning issue, which I haven't started messing with yet.

And finally I decided I do want to install factory springs up front instead of the current swift lowering springs. If anyone had a set of used VIII/IX factory front springs laying around let me know.

I had a similar sound when my Check valve failed, would hear a high pitch whine out the catch can when the valve cover was under more pressure.

Do you have any logs that you can post of idle and pulls?
