Default my new toy

what do you guys think about this cooler, should help keep temps down and be a easier Ic set-up, I decided to sell my saab intercooler and the usless ss steel lines I bought for the money to buy it....should look real nice.

I don't think we are speaking the same language Or is this you announcing that you are into SCAT and should also eat more fiber?

That's a sure sign of future health problems.

TurboTim- I have cam gears (tho they ain't pretty), if RmR doesn't sell.
One is silver the other is black. The silver one has been drilled in tapped to install a sensor trigger (machine screw) that I was using to set coil phase. Can easily be removed. -rob

As the spanish say......QUE??? ...or simple elglish WHAT THE ****! lmfao , drinking water helps....more fiber too..more whole wheat breads, cereals , excedra....And a big mac is'nt going to make ya poo any better....lmfao nuff said.

I finally got the two remaining studs out of the hotside of the turbo, now I CAN fab a downpipe with no issues and bolt it up while the turbo was Apart I cleaned the inlet fins and any crud inside...Looks great with all the fittings FINALLY on...a machine shop removed the studs right down the street...Can't wait to get that **** in the egine bay , Im getting my EVO bv in a couple of days and bandit is supplying me with the correct oil lines and water lines for the turbo, along with the fittings needed for the block and a piece for my oil tap, Then febuary 15th Im going to buy a boomslang harness for my emanage that way I have control over fuel and some ignition, so I can retard the timing with my emanage and control my larger 310 cc mkII injecters, Im going to pre-install the emanage first , then after I haft to get a wide band, with my intercooler that I recently bought that should help keep things at peace boosting 7psi....well thats what I have planned in my head so far...any addtions to make to this list?

things still needed:
1-wideband( plan to buy from wideopentuning)
2-fuel pump, But im not sure which I need the 190 or 255
3-dumpipe
4-Bends and IC piping
5-boomslang harness
6-spec clutch(after Install
7-2 bar GM map sensor
8-A emanage blue usb cable(anyone have one I could buy?)

This is all I could think of I need for now, the cam gears I was planning to install them When I did my next timing belt change and leave them at stock markings Until the turbo install...if they yeld benifits so be it...if not, they are nice bling to the engine bay.
