Is ducting on the list for the new IC location? I'd be curious to see the IAT before and after ducting.

still working on it, trying to figure out best ways for air ducting before I do any cutting.
This way if I have to just rip it off because I wasn't happy with the results I will with a still functioning bumper.

Are you going to try and duct air up from under the car?

no idea yet, still working on mainly just reliability mods for the car. Thinking about cutting into the hood and making a place for air to exit right behind the radiator.

Also I ordered in an EGT Gauge and Sensor!

My CAS wheel came in.

I'll let some of the pics do the talking.
But one issue I see is that the wheel is a tad thinner compared to the stock wheel and also a lot more flimsy. Not sure on the replacement size of the Nissan wheels but diyautotune might want to make a thicker wheel. I need a caliper to measure the actual size difference. Since its flimsy compared to stock its rubbing aganist the black plastic of the reader. Its a tight fit and I used the stock one to push it down with equal force onto the shaft as not to bend it.
