wow, more pics do wonders, I really like the turbo placement with that mani, nice dp too.

I still hope your turbo sucks off that front bumper the first time you go into boost.

Get a less restrictive air filter and raise boost, the problem with your bumper will be solved

Anyway, congratulations.

Congrats on the build. Even those that don't like your bumper still have to respect your fabrication skills. Plus, going from "fabbed" to "running" in just a few days has my respect as well.

Nice work! Glad you changed the hot side IC pipe routing. And +1 on the speed. I came into the thread just checking it out, didn't expect to see such quick progress and the car running in a couple days!
