I'd share video, but we were giggling like little girls most of the time while chasing down a modified MSM and other turbo cars...

I wish I was there for some of your runs. With me not being in Fontana I never really saw you guys after we left Knoxville.

The guy with the big wing was on the Thursday night run on the Cherohala skyway. Seemed like a cool enough guy.

Awesome. Now that it's running, drive it up here and give me a ride and take some kittens.

MKTurbo offers a quality turbo setup that is quiet enough to not scare the kittens. It is even blessed by Tabitha.

No tarblow plz.


Hey so... i have the reroute spacer from the group buys on here. It's installed, but it's too thin, i can't get a clamp around it properly due to the water line nipple in the way. Super sketchy.

What do i do? Is there a revised version of this i can trade out for?

<p>Possibly? Wait for someone else to either prove me wrong or tell me I'm right.</p>

I sent him a PM, but i'm a little peeved since there's no way i would trust this to hold up on track. I'd rather not dump water all over everyone behind me, lose a motor, or make a wet spot for myself to stuff my car in a wall on.

I would have thought that if there was a revised spacer that didn't have fitment issues the original buyers would have at least been notified.

<p>I think the reason it wasn't a big deal was because it works without the extra width, its just a pain in the ***. You would have to go re-read the thread.</p>

It flat out doesn't work. I had to shave the hose down just to get the hose over the waterneck WITHOUT a clamp.

The only way it'll maybe work is to attach the hose to the neck first, then bolt everything down, which is a whole bunch of **** THAT ****.
