i did my intercooler piping today except the stuff near the turbo that i hve to finish once its mounted on the manifold. I like the way it came out.








I need to reclock the housing so the drain points directly to the ground, also need to reclock the compressor so the outlet faces down.

after getting a new battery and a vac line. my car is alive again. cant wait to drive it. i post some more videos once its on the road completely.

and i think my ewg is lined wrong because there shouldnt be exhaust coming out of it at idle right?
