So I had this welded up thinking "oh yeah the bumper will still fit" Note- i dont actually have a pic of this welded.

well it didnt fit, so I had to do a bit more cutting and hammering, and said screw it and kept the connector. also you can see where I had the pipe welded previously

its a SERIOUSLY tight fit between the frame and the bumper. but it fits!

Picked up my manifold and took a few pictures while I mock up the rest of intercooler and intake piping. The blue couplers are borrowed and I will be ordering new black ones. I will also be getting a smaller air filter and building a box around it. Also I flipped the fitting on the power steering pump 180 and bent it towards the reservoir to be out of the way of the turbo inlet. Last Ive ordered a flyinmiata lower radiator hose to give a bit more clearance in the front. I just do not have it yet.
What do you think?

I ordered new black 90degree couplers, more t-bolt clamps and an AEM dry filter.
since I hade to go into work I wasnt able to get much else done. But I did manage to start on my intake box pattern.
