I do have a owners manual. Ill check it out. Figured the internet was a trust with place lol jk.
I have a ton of work to do to this car.
Heater core issues, removing solenoid packs, rewire tps, fix the cracked turbo manifold . Then once I get my CDL and start rolling in the dough I plan on building it.
Don't wanna get ahead of my self like can change at any given moment. So I live my life a quarter mile at a time.
I believe someone on here (???) has posted links to the Field Service Manual (FSM) aka "Shop Manual" aka "Service Manual".
But I don't remember exactly where it is.
The FSM is much more comprehensive than the Owners Manual of which you speak.
Sounds like you will need the FSM since you will be doing a ton of work.
Heater core will be a bitch by some accounts here.
I personally would advise against removing the solenoid packs on top of the air box.
The PCM uses these to manage/optimise the power of the motor in varying environmental conditions.
Meaning you could end up making less power and have less drivability since the PCM won't be able to well-manage your motor.
TPS is an easy fix. Modern Performance has the repair kits:
Mopar TPS Wiring & Connector Repair Kit, Throttle Body & Intake Manifold: Store Name
or you can get a kit at your local Dodge dealer if you prefer.
Small cracks in the turbofold are inevitable and normal.
Giant crack are a problem though.
I've heard it is possible to fix crack by brazing.
I've not found it necessary to touch my S3 turbofold since it was installed in 2004.
I'll bet it has cracks but boost still spikes to 21PSI and holds 17PSI even after all these years of beating on it.
