Default Not quite squared away engine bay

A few pics after my turbo install. Forgive me for the nastyness of the engine bay. I've only been waiting about 10 months to get this done!

I bet your BOV doesn't work. Look at where you are getting your "vaccuum" source from. Does it gobble like a turkey between shifts?
