I'd run zerooo boost for the time being until you get the megasquirt.

Just asking, why run the exhaust through the fender like that?

Should of just made a chimney stack with a rain flap out of the hood

But that's no fun haha and had a stack.... Was worried about fumes and it was loud as hell. The glass pack really quieted the car down

Yeah I have a bender at work... 2.5" so all the "beautiful" bends might be about 2" but the whole exhaust was 23$ pipes free and like I said I have a bender. So the glass pack was the 23$

Boost comes on easy at 2600rpm. Not laggy. But like I stated stock ecu so I don't let it go it just leans out.

Why not just do the bend and then glasspak on top of that ?

Looks super hoopty with it going through the fender like that. Legal in your state?

Something tells me you're doing this wrong build based off of the turbo
