Default Dad's NB is now boosted!

Installed a low mileage used MSM kit.

Running 5 psi with an FM Voodoo Box and timing wheel.
AEM wideband
Ebay intercooler with DIY piping
Knock off HKS style bov
We modified the DDM works heat shield to work with the new setup.
We used the stock midpipe with a Magnaflow cat back.
He will probably be ordering this midpipe and turbo outlet from ebay.

The car also has an FM stage 2 suspension kit and cross drilled rotors with Axxis ultimates.

No comments on the buck teeth, I hate them also.

When my dad left yesterday on his back track home to NY, 2 hours into his drive he got stopped for speeding. Luckily the cop was cool and let him off with a warning.

What if "someone" came by and "stole" those foglights? You might be doing him a favor.

He'd just get another set, lol

Unfortunately he's limited to only about 8 psi with the voodoo box and he has no interest in getting into a full ecu. He's going to replace the rest of the exhaust and that's about it.

I've been looking all over for good pics of a nb w/ac intercooler setup for a while now. Thanks! Build looks pretty good.

I think I would have tried to explain to him that the secondary fogs were blocking too much airflow and needed to be removed

The a/c isn't really an issue, all the damn P/S lines on the other hand make things tight.

What size is that intercooler? Your setup is pretty much exactly what I want mine to look like.
