LD9 finally getting some attention
Saturday, July 07, 2018 11:04 AM
After selling my Cobalt SS a while back I started missing boost. Z24 has been sitting since. I also came to a point of telling myself this is all a waste of money. But when Iím bored it helps to have a fun car lol. So I finally started working on the LD9.

Iím going with a Felpro head gasket this time. Cometic is not convenient to have to retorque.

Nice to see some LD9 love. Did you have a copper gasket before?

No but I did use copper spray. It was a three layer gasket. I wonder if those dam rivets were the issue.

What seats are those, I'm finally getting back to finishing my 2000 Z24 as well and I have a similar engine build to your 2.3/2.4 hybrid with a turbo as well and I can't wait to get it running and drive it again.

Are you going to use the turbo header and downpipe from before?

Who says you have to retorque? Mine's held up just fine over the last 6+ years and 38,000 miles of not-babying it.

Seats are red MOMO seats but had seen better days. Found a good deal to get them reupholstered. Red was too flashy so I went with black.

I just received word that my turbo manifold is beyond fixing. Lost $10 getting the welds fixed, now I hear the flange is too warped/bent to fix.

So yes I am looking for a new turbo manifold. If I don't find a good deal I will risk it and go with the ebay manifold.

I have since picked up a SRT4 so the Z24 is jealous when I pull up lol.

I guess its just my luck as many others with that dam cometic head gasket. I didn't break her in either so that may have been it.

I will post more pics soon on some updates.
