Default Lugie's 03 Build

I lost a little steam the past few weeks, but I did find an older digi cam. So here is my build thus far. I'll add in details tonight, I took the next two days off to work on it, so I want to make the most of my time. I'm doing this at my apartment instead of the shop, which is making everything interesting. I really feel for you guys that don't have lifts, pulling the tranny is annoying me right now.

Adaptronic- I'll take it off and get a good shot of the braket, it's super simple and fits like a glove.

Upper Bracket- I used some 1"box and some 1" steel strap for the main support. The lower alum. brackets are really just to keep it from wiggling. I'll get better pics of it when I clean out the intercooler.

Not sure what else I'm going to do here. I have an egr block-off plate from Begi as well, and I think I'll end up using the egr wire to control my EBC. Guess I have to read up here to see what all needs to be gone.

None of the right equipment lol:

Got the cold side routed, tranny is almost out. My tranny jack is useless in the situation. I'll need an extra set of hands to yank it.

Mounted the map, ran wires for the guages, just little junk.

Stopped taking pictures for some reason. I'll grab more in the morning. Still waiting on a package from ATP for the final fittings. Hopefully finish up the clutch tomorrow and mount the turbo for good.
