Nice videos. I take it your BOV is not recirculating?

Yep South (and East) Texas winters are great. It was sunny and 75 degrees outside today in the San Antonio area. Summer sucks though, really hot and humid, so we do pay for these mild 'winters'.

I don't get the #5 reference... but I assume the grown up sound comment has to do with the fact it isn't stupid loud. I really like the exhaust that's on the car right now, shame it's only 2.25"

yeah- fifth posted vid. And yes, not stupid loud, but it sounds like it's cranking out the power... silent, but deadly :gay: Mine sounds very similar - very quiet exhaust and bov.

the bov is an older HKS recirc valve (bought from urban soot). It's so loud because it isn't hooked back into the intake (aka, blow to atmosphere).

^ id like to know as well, I see that metal cylinder on the left, behind the bumper and it looks like it would be a problem with an intercooler the wrong size.

I was thinking of getting this http://www.cxracing.com/mm5/merchant...ry_Code=IC25CO, and would like to know if it would fit.

Nice setup! I love seeing videos like this posted...I have a week off in the near future that I plan on using to boost my '97...it's nice to know the end result will be that cool.

You dont by any chance have pics of your pipe routing or can post how you mounted the IC to the car?

Should be able to copy the "Stripes" method for mounting that intercooler since it looks like the same one was sold in his kits. There were measurements for the mount on the website.
