So started taking things apart. Very impressed, the little MSM turbo is a trooper. +18psi and lots of spark cuts and yet no oil in my charge piping. I figured it was on its way out. Anyways, did some test fits of the new setup and looks like the EWG well have to be moved a bit and angled too work/not hit things. Nothing big but it should be glorious, things are coming together, everything seems pretty simple and there's plenty of room for activities.

I'm wondering if the A/C compressor will comprise my oil drain at all. I don't think they'll be close enough to block each other







Some turbo bits and nawz

A little peak at the progress, had to cut some of the front but I'm still retaining AC/PS. Not finished product but it's getting there. Charge piping should be done by this weekend.

Progress is progress.
It turns out my research into the coolant port size was wrong. I'm seriously surprised that info isn't easily accessed.

Midpipe vband is on, now to get it out the back.

animated picture depicting my rage at Fab9.gif

CoP setup, $300 instantly taken out, BACK ON MAY 8TH, I've talked to them 5 ******* TIMES now, I've been polite every single time, giving them bug information about their mobile site not showing certain things(stock, contact info, ect..), being promised "Oh, it'll ship next week, if not let me know I'll expedite it", 3 broken promises later, I get shipping confirmation, check of delivery info after no show, GOT DELIVERED TO ******* Pennsylvania, Call and forward the email of shippment info, he admits there was a mistake, says he will ship another out to me to my correct address this time, I ask "well, let's talk shipping my car is soon to be done and I kinda need this, you need to help me out." promised 2 day shipping on JUNE 16th, still waiting.


This is bullshit Fab9.

I'm about to request my money back in full and may never recommend their business.

I drove my car today
Open downpipe was awful but vbamd to finish up the exhaust should be in "today"

Oh, those high temp exhaust coatings are garbage.

VHT. So many coats, used the whole can. Oven cured it.
I think what's flaking is the engine enamel but I don't think I put that on there. I dunno. I gotta check again to see if it's pure metal under it.

What do y'all suggest then? I've never seen expensive coatings besides going to a powder coater.

Slight overheating problem, thinking due to air in the cooling system (ALLOFIT came out)

Swain isnt even that expensive. My complicated *** tubular manifold, the EFR housing, and my downpipe was only like $280 including shipping that big box both ways.
