Sir you truly are a moron. You need to do some research. It is a v-mount setup. The rad is kicked back at a 45 degree angle and the intercooler is mounted flat on top. With the proper ducting it will cool better than front mount. Using a vented hood the air is sucked through and out the hood , and the rad air is pushed out the bottom of the car. And you have my word it wont be a garage queen. Yes i buy good parts , i dont like buying things twice ! And im supporting american business's in the process .

It would be nice if users had the ability to ban people from threads they started.

it would be nice if users could edit other peoples messages as well but when you look at the true world that will be abused. Otherwise the admins would be "needed".

lets see, on the way is

earl's inline oil thermostat ( to control oil flow to the oilcooler)

canton oil filter adaptor( mounts to filter boss, for remote filter)

canton filter mount ( remote mount filter, i am running a chevy, yes chevy spin on oil filter. more oil flow with less pressure drop and more capacity)

canton 1QT accusump ( for pre oiling before starting)

marshall 0-100 psi fuel pressure gauge

once i get this stuff in and mounted this weekend im gonna order all my oil lines and fittings, turbo oil and coolant lines, and catchcan and lines and fittings. from then on its electircal, gauges,vacuum, air filter. and getting loose ends tied up

Finish that garage queen and burn some rubber!

You remind me a guy in one of those Del SOl forums where everybody was UHH and AHH for years, another one who also had a Mazda 5 build thread and the same shyt, all other users were sobbing and "I want to see your car" and all that car kinky stuff and then at the end the project went south or simply it just remained a garage queen.

Its cool that you do stuff to the car, but just because you do "more" does not mean is going to be super bad ***. I have seen it plenty of time on mx3.com, Mazdaforums.com and clubprotege.com. Spend 3,000 on a turbo, buy brand everything and 4 years down the road dont know why the car is just doing 14s on the quarter mile.
HELO. Do you have a Civic for sale?

Ban!!!

Keep up the good work OP! I will say it's a long time coming, but I have enjoyed every second of this thread. I can't wait to see the finished product though.

PSIturbo is most certainly a dumbass. He reminds me of Zoomin, who is also a virgin.
