Well hit the onramp to the highway and the turbo went wizz, and boost gauge went to atmo, thought I popped another coupler. behold, shitty rubber coupler torn apart. Now I got to buy a 90 2.5" silicone replacement coupler.

rubber couplers ftl.

What's the brown spot on the under side of your hood above the turbo? Oil, or just some heat?

I like the flexible charge pipe idea I think.

That's a curious set up for your idle control.

Still loving the zipties I see looks like they're holding 50% of your engine bay together!

mounted 2 of my 4 r comps, test fit them on the front to see if anything may rub. So far so good, nothing touches have to wait and see once the suspension goes under full compression

Sweet brass fitting, so that is going to your slashcut now? What is the old pcv port hooked up to? Also I like those bmw wheels on there, the other ones look a bit monster truckin-esque
