So finally, my little girl has become the dirty skank I want her to be.
But first, some building details.
I bought a slightly used kit with a custom IC solution, and to be frank, it sucked monkeyballs. As you can see, the elbow has the IC pipe going down between the power steering and cooler fan, and it's pretty tight down there.
Since I had assistance from people who prefer this stuff to be done right the first time, we had to make some adjustments.
The biggest problem being that the hose from the power steering does a pretty awkward turn, and takes up a lot of space.
So we welded the pipe the other way, and removed most of the hose.
So now we had lots of space for IC piping.
We turned the housing downwards, and put the piping straight down to the IC, giving us a solution for the future. It also looks a lot more discrete.
So the result?
Well, I love it. Apart for the downpipe being 5 cm (that's 2 inches for you) from my brake lines.
Last night we had a mapping session with TS (Thank you VERY much for that tip, it rocks the socks off that MegaTune crap), and she's running good on 3 psi.
Gonna wait for dry weather, and then the boost controller is coming on, and we're moving up towards 12-15 psi.
Tuning isn't really cool in total darkness and heavy rain, you don't want to go full throttle on 12+ psi.
