Don't forget this little bolt for the coolant hard lines...
IMG_20190923_173355.jpg

And the primary o2 harness plug!
IMG_20190923_173526.jpg


Now the turbo heat shield. One of the three bolts is a pretty dang annoying to put in, but it's nothing compared to the turbo oil drain line bolts!

Now time to go underneath the car again and attach the secondary o2 sensor plug and bolt the bracket to the firewall.

And finally, the downpipe stay bracket.

Before I forget, gotta put this plastic shield back in as well...

Last thing for the night was the midpipe. Installation is pretty easy, IF you do it in the correct order.

First bring the front of the pipe up around the downpipe and let it rest on the subframe. Next, line up the back end of the midpipe to the rest of the exhaust. Don't forget your gasket!
IMG_20190923_180536.jpg

Now, the midpipe will be held up by the back 2 studs, and the subframe will hold up the front end. This will free up your hands so you can install the stay bracket.

IMG_20190923_180543.jpg

Remove the bracket bolts from the transmission, then line up the holes to the midpipe, and reinstall the bolts to the transmission, but don't torque them completely. Then install the bolts on the midpipe that connect to the bracket. Again, don't torque them down completely, as you may need a little wiggle room to line up the front and back of the midpipe flanges.

IMG_20190923_181046.jpg

Now you can easily line up the front, and install the two 19mm bolts.
IMG_20190923_181056.jpg
IMG_20190923_181348.jpg

Torque down the two nuts on the back end of the midpipe.

IMG_20190923_181741.jpg

Finally, tighten all the transmission to midpipe bracket mounting bolts.

The last thing I did for the night was just to attach the 2 coolant hoses to the coolant hard lines.

At this point I called it for the night, as I wanted to spend some time with the family! Here is the pile of stuff still needing to go in - almost there!!!
IMG_20190923_182511.jpg


I should be able to finish reinstalling everything today, and then I'll fill it with coolant, bleed the air out, and start her up!!!

Bravo! You certainly got a lot done (and documented). Very well written and photographed Todd. You could produce your own assembly manual. Actually, you made it all look pretty easy, I don't know what all the flap was about 😂.
You know I'm kidding.
Can't wait to hear you've got her running again.

Todd, great pics and story along the way. You showed your torq wrench and it had what looked like a calibration sticker on it. I work in an Aerospace factory and every tool we use is calibrated. I have several Craftsman torq wrenches at home and have periodically brought them to work and validated accuracy. Never officially calibrated them though and I do zero them out after use. Was yours actually calibrated with an expiration date? If so, you be the first DIY person home mechanic I’ve known (at least via this forum) to go to that trouble. Puts you way above most of us in being very thorough and complete. Based on the job you have done at hand, your easily at or above any dealer certified mechanic by a good margin. Can’t wait for final chapter and engine start and leak test.

Unfortunately I cannot take any credit related to calibration of the torque wrench. It came with the calibration sticker on it! Even so, thank you for your kind words!

Just bought some OEM Hyundai coolant. Will mix 50/50 with distilled water for refill. I decided not to re-use the original coolant I drained. I'm sure it would be fine, but, well, may as well go with new!

I started a trip the day before Todd's 1st post. Just returned, saw this thread & read every post. I got sucked in. Reads like a thriller novel. Can't wait for you to cross the finish line. Bravo sir, you are an inspiration.

Yeah...especially the blood. He says it's from his fingers...but I think he started head butting the turbo out of frustration ;)

Okay, had some time right after work to put almost everything back together. Here goes.

First had to reinstall the throttle body. But before doing so, I previously noticed some weird glu-like droplets spackled all around the inside of the throttle body. I figured I'd clean it out, so I had a tiny bit of carb cleaner left over, sprayed it on a shop towel, and wiped the inside relatively clean. The throttle butterfly still had some black overspray looking material on it, but it was smooth, and it looks like that really is overspray from the factory. *shrug*

Before...
IMG_20190927_015302.jpg

After...
IMG_20190927_015753.jpg

Throttle body installed. Don't forget those coolant lines.
IMG_20190927_020220.jpg



Now time to install the intake piping. First, put on the hot side charge piping coupling coming straight off the turbo...
IMG_20190927_020424.jpg

Then, install the intake elbow and diverter coupling...
IMG_20190927_021159.jpg

And lastly the intake airbox. Easy Peezy.
IMG_20190927_021659.jpg


Next, installed the cold side charge piping that leads into the throttle body.
IMG_20190927_022002.jpg

Once the throttle body coupling was attached, then I attached the intercooler coupling/elbow...
IMG_20190927_022938.jpg

Make sure you don't forget the pipe stay.
IMG_20190927_022147.jpg


And lastly, attach the vacuum lines to the vacuum block, and the block to the pipe.

Next I installed the passenger side strut tower brace, make sure you torque it down properly (20lb-ft)...
IMG_20190927_023447.jpg

And then the front bumper/radiator top cover piece by putting in all the plastic rivets....
IMG_20190927_023715.jpg



NOW - time to get ready to refill the coolant. First thing I needed to do was find the coolant bleeder hose. The FSM states that it's on the front, top of the engine block, underneath the wiring harness and under some insulation foam. I had to remove some of the wiring harness from the top of the block to make enough room to move it out of the way, take a look..

First, unplug and unclip the top of the engine wiring harness from the passenger side bank, as seen here...
IMG_20190927_023916.jpg
IMG_20190927_024034.jpg
IMG_20190927_024105.jpg

Next, unbolt the plastic harness stay/guide/bracket from the top of the block so you can move it out of the way...
IMG_20190927_024210.jpg
IMG_20190927_024247.jpg

Now you can lift the stay/guide/bracket up, and remove the foam insulation block to reveal the bleeder hose...

There it is in all its glory...
IMG_20190927_024316.jpg

Pop that little guy off to get ready to refill...
IMG_20190927_024515.jpg

Don't forget the rags!

Now we are finally ready to refill coolant. I went ahead and just bought brand new OEM Hyundai coolant, along with some distilled water.
IMG_20190927_024818.jpg
IMG_20190927_024833.jpg


Using a 50/50 mixture I started filling.
IMG_20190927_030156.jpg


After a while the radiator was full, but I still am not seeing any bubbles or overflow coming from the bleeder hose. That said, I need to squeeze some coolant hoses to push some of the air through. I'll finish that hopefully tonight. I also may got something to apply some positive pressure into the system....I don't know, we will see. Whatever it takes to get those air bubbles out.

Once I'm done with this, we'll start her up!!! Almost there!

WOW dude...all insane. At this point...you need to officially jack off on the trunk. Just do it. Show ownership...LOL.
