A few more DIY projects include.. making a cover for the IC like this.


Still gotta tig weld all the IC pipes and redo the DP with a cut out.


Now I gotta tune her and get her on the dyno by march 2nd.

Looks good. Did you have to notch the hood?

Sits a lot like the GReddy set-up. Do you have heat shielding for the hood?

Nice so far, but I'm not liking the non-symmetrical intercooler. I mounted my IC first, and then ran pipes to it. A random IC just hanging in the mouth is not aesthetically pleasing.
