Or is it not too bad with all the present accumulated knowledge. I don't have ac.
Kinda almost belongs on a different thread or something, don't ya think? In the engine management section, perhaps?

do it right the first time rather than having to redo some **** over again because of rushing boost greed,
buy parts only once so buy quality ****.

1. would have used the ETD shorty tube instead of long tube.

2. 2560 instead of 2876

3. installed the air-air intercooler first instead of trying air-water first.

4. something other than Tec3 or Hydra for engine management.

BONUS: generally I try to avoid getting the "ok" stuff if I can stretch and get the exact thing I want. nothing sucks like wasting money on buying stuff twice.
