I've been thinking about it for the last several months. It will be my magnum opus.

That does look good, and should be effective.

I especially like the contrast against the front bumper.

Thanks rick!
<br />My air filter is definitely underneath it and so is the fan. Slightly worrying in Oregon. It just gives me more motivation to move the air intake. Maybe I'll build a water shield for the fan.
<br />I'm going to do some string tests later.

<p>In 6 months I'd like a kitten. We can't have them at our current place.</p><p>Pulled the turbo to cut a relief between 3 and 4. There was definitely some stress on the flange. It closed in on my hacksaw blades and snapped a few. New gasket and new studs.</p><p><br /><br /><br /><br /></p><p>Also bought some exhaust clamps to build new support for the muffler and exhaust.</p><p></p>

Holy crap, you do have a turbo. I was starting to doubt there for a while.

<p>I wish I could break a diff on NA power, that would be one bad *** 1.6. I have something like 5k on the turbo. No oil in the intercooler, manifold looks great. Exhaust leaks around both flanges but thats a given when I didn't use thick enough flanges. I want v-bands. I'm cheap, so I doubt I will ever have them but still. Apparently there was a v-band version of the Holset turbos.</p>
