So I have not been on in a very long time. I have since drove the summit for a year as a daily (60miles round trip) 2017. I then parked it January of 2018 and didn't touch it until Jun or July 2018. I was trying to go through anything that could cause it to brake down. I upgraded turbos to a Bullseye S362 with a dsm style turbine outlet. I used a punishment style o2 housing using a Tial wastegate. I installed a N/A water charge pipe and fed the turbo off the oil filter housing. I did a water pump and timing job. I was still dealing with tune issues and wideband issues. Long story short. Don't run the wideband from the o2 housing and install it 18in after the turbo. I relocated the fuel pressure gauge and tighten up the intercooler and radiator. I have never had a inspection cover on the bottom of the transmission and this really bothered me for years. I had one laying around the garage and put it on. When I fired the car up to take it to 2018 Shootout hours before leaving. It sounded like the turbo was rubbing on one of the housings. I took the turbo off, took off the compressor housing, looked good, installed the turbo, fired up, louder noise, took off the turbo, tore it down to the chra with no issue. Then 10min before having to be in a car headed out. I figure it out the inspection cover was just grazing the torque converter just perfectly to give it a turbo interference ring.
Got back from shootout and took a step away from the car for a few months. I looked at installing a 4 bolt differential and never made any progress of actually doing it. I would tinker but never do anything with it. At this point I was in need of a rear mustache bar and inspiration. So fast forward to 2019 Shootout time period. I started on the car a month early. I had purchased a ridiculously beefed up stock mustache bar months before. I made sure the car was ready to be tuned for sure again. After 2018 shootout, I purchased a 1989 Suburban to haul the family around and by shootout I was ready to tow with it. The suburban had received a new transmission, new differential, new rad, upgraded brakes, electronic brake controller, and all new senors. I was pumped to tow with it. I try to tow a car out every year as insurance for the caravan group that I go with. We made it to shootout with a few hickups but nothing big. The radiator fan decided to fry itself front the inside while cruising to the track. Thanks to the Casey family and Performancepartout. I was able to install a Spal fan at the track and still cruise around. It also became apparent the turbo was burning oil like a mosquito killer. We spent hours trying to get the car to tune, but because of the wideband issues that I am still having we just got a base tune done. Thanks Standard Tuning. I am going to purchase my 3rd bosch sensor and calibrate it and hope to not have any issues. I also had the exhaust welded up as since it was put together, I had a slip on clamp.
So this past weekend, I drove the summit to my home town (2hour trip one way). My kids, nephew, and niece got to ride around in the summit. We went bowling, grabbed burgers, and got ice cream. The turbo doesn't smoke unless over 5psi. I have notice how high my oil pressure is but never had a cause for concern. With the engine fully warmed and in cold driving conditions (35F)
At 900 rpm- 25-30psi
at 2000rpm -55psi
At 2800rpm - 82psi
At 3400rpm - 98psi
At this point my 100psi gauge really doesn't read any higher.
I need to do the ofh modification over the Christmas Holiday. I also need to get an alignment or balance the wheels again. I have a shutter/vibration at 80mph. I thought it was previously my hub centric rings (now have been replaced) or bent mustache bar (been replaced). I have had this issue since I can remember.
I don't know if the turbo is burning oil due to oil pressure or if it needs repairs. I called Bullseye over the TG holiday and obviously no one was there to help.
I thought I would give an update to the car as it has been 3 year, but still on the road from time to time.
