no problems under 7psi of boost with that piping setup, one of the couplers blew off the piping but realigned and tightened it up more. Holds fine so far.
Whenever it gets on the dyno I'll see whats happening under the hood and grab a video.

You can see it in this picture. Like I said, an immediate 90*. Or build one yourself.
hmm interesting but I"m not sure with the current setup it will fit, does the 90 elbow turn 90 degrees fine and bolt back on?

No, since it's rectangular. At least the bolt patter is. Whats under there?

I like my AC and I have no PS, thanks very much

The orange tubing bent where I figured it would near the turbo, that area will be blocked off and tubing will be routed to the other side of the valve cover instead.

no air from the intake to get into the valve cover.
put a breather on the other side so I decided to block it off for time being to make sure no weird idle or unmetter air issues came up.

now I will be pulling a vacuum from the exhaust instead of the intake.

ALso: ninja edit I see

I bought a MS2 off diyautotune today and hopefully it will arrive tomorrow. I plan to get it installed and tuned this weekend. I will also need to buy some injectors, my plan is 320cc specV injectors off a sentra.

Bought some 460cc rx7 injectors
Also got my MS2 to idle on stock injectors for a test, with all cylinders sparking. very fun.

Installed MS2, 460cc rx7 injectors, exhuast\muffler

Changed reg fuel to 6.2 and swapped in the 460cc fuel table from diyautotune. With hour of driving and tuning got a rough cruise tune down around 14\15s soem spots still 13s, but so far good. Also tested in boost, little too rich need to lean out certain boost cells.

I was surpised at how well it started on the 460cc injectors with only those changes.

I got some of my intercooler piping in, Duct Hose from mcmaster carr. We are gonna give it a try and see the outcome.

Looking for a intercooler like the TrackDog Racing unit.

Those rear lower eccentric bolts look like they're both in the same position. Does this thing dog-track?

I used a CXracing - it's a little on the large/heavy side but it fits in there pretty good.

See below:





I believe it was this one:

http://www.cxracing.com/mm5/merchant...gory_Code=INCO

I think I'm about 300 deep into my intercooler set up including the cost of welding my IAC, WG input and BOV flange, the silicone elbows as well as some overpriced .25" 6061 from McMaster - I got the IC cheaper than the 230 on the website so that helped.
