    Some of the coolest builds come post-engine fires. Glad you're keeping with it! It's a huge inspiration to me.

    Thanks for the offer but a new haltech harness is on the way, along with some other haltech goodies. We'll just say my shopping cart was a little more that i should have spent lol. Sent from my SM-G892A using Tapatalk

    Ya I got incredibly lucky! My 2.5lb fire extinguisher ran out and there was still a pretty big fire I thought it was gone completely. Luckily I had a gallon of coolant in the trunk that got it under control till eventually someone drove by and had some water with them to get the fire completely out.

    What an amazing iX! You will rebuild it. Make it better than it was. Better, stronger, faster. :)

    Well after some diagnosis I got good news id say. Found the culprit to be a injector oring failed. I believe I over tighten the fuel rail and caused the rail to sit at a slight angle over the injectors. I'm going to change the mounting setup now. Also after lots and lots of cleaning and polishing I can't believe how well it turned out. Will need to repaint the front clip but honestly it was starting to get beat up from rock chips anyway. The wiring took the most of the damage so of course while its apart time for some upgrades. Have a few issues with the head but there not related to the fire, apparently I twisted the entire head casting by almost .015thou 😔. as of now I'm just going to bolt it back up and turn the boost up because I'm pretty sure that solves most issues.

    that's painful to see. I hope you can sort it out with out too much trouble.
    On the upside it wasn't in the garage or by the house when you weren't around

    This update hurts my soul. Hope you have a speedy repair and get a good idea of what happened/how to prevent it from happening again
