    Wheels arrived on Thursday and were promptly mounted this morning before my work meeting. Then upon returning home, I found a turbo sitting on my front porch.

    Still waiting on my intercooler to ship, and then I can install my big pile of parts and make 350whp on a 1.8L engine!

    Fine. Y'all got me all fired up about this and I dug around the garage until I found the o ring that I had bought like a year ago



    Changing it out is, of course, stupid easy. It actually took me a minute to find the o ring because it just looked like part of the cap. It had been hella flattened by xx years of being pressed against the angled sealing face.

    Before - notice the 45deg flat at the base of the cap - that's the o ring



    After - nice round boi

    Itís not the o rings that leaks. Thereís a hole in the cap to vent when the pressure is too high, so it is DESIGNED to leak.

    Yes, replacing the o ring will help if itís failed, but the hole is in the cap intentionally.

    Mine didn't make any mess during an autocross today with the new o ring. I also stuffed some q tip cotton in the vent hole to knock down the oil mist.

    Checked the oil level because little over 3K miles after getting the opg done the yellow oil light came on when turning off the car after a short drive. At the time of the ogp fix the entire middle block/rectangle in the dipstick was covered and now its down to the bottom of it, so will have to take it in sometime to hunt the leak down.

    Spent the better part of the weekend stripping all the factory hot crayon sound-deadening, tar and insulation from the rear seat, trunk and shelf and replaced it with Dynamat and 1/2" Dynaliner. Took the opp to re-dye the shelf while is was out and install UHMW (teflon) tape where the louver contacts the mount points. Totally worth the effort as the smell is completely gone and the road noise is noticeably quieted.

    Where/what does this refer to - "louver contacts the mount points?" I need to look into the bass rattle of my coupe's rear shelf (got some tennis balls, but need to find out how/where to use them!) Nice work!

    Thanks!

    Just below the bottom of the back glass the steel panel has raised areas and those make contact with the molded-in support ribs of the louver. I installed adhesive Teflon tape on the steel panel areas to minimize and hopefully eliminate any potential squeaking from movement.

    Unfortunately I didn't take any pics of that specific part of the install but in the second pic of my post you can see those raised areas on either side of the square cutouts. I believe there were 12 all together.

    Link to the tape here. Any UHMW type adhesive will work though.

    I see the raised areas with red paint & the black plastic "louver" in the next to last photo now. Haven't had mine apart yet to be familiar with all the pieces. Thought about using the non-sticky (loop) side of Velcro to cushion the parts back there, but will look into the Teflon tape.
