Ugly and functional. Projects on the list are charcoal canister delete and an oil catch can.

Noob question, what's the advantage of the exposed cam gears?

Back when I ran normally aspirated with cowl induction and AFM delete:


Current:




My favorites so far:

1. TurboTim can't get no satisfaction!

2. Hustler has some kind of Teddy Bear peeking above his cowl. He's the sensitive type.

I know that feel, 18psi...

What it used to be at its latest peak in mods, 440cc rx7 injectors, walbro 225hp fuel pump, mallory AFPR, MSPNP, MTX Wideband, T25 turbo, holy grail $100 ebay singular runner manifold, 3" exhaust @14psi (ignore the boost controller, it was disconnected but not removed out of the engine bay at the time)





lol the way mine has stayed for almost a year now without the electronics I sold for money after I burned the valve seals @ 14psi... so far back at stock, but about to run turbo again after I get off my *** and replace the seals, because I can, and I am a boost junky. Lol I bought a new header and yet never ever ran it, because I am going back to turbo after the seals are replaced... but it will be a while to get it back to where the car was before.

You get to catch your fingers/tie/clothing in them when poking about the engine with it running.

Or, you get to mash them when a stone flicks into the engine bay and gets trapped between belt and gear.

If you have vernier gears then it allows you to adjust them without pulling the cam cover, otherwise it's for looks and therefore

Cleanest installation ever IMHO! (it's not my engine bay, but I worked on that with my friend)



Question: why is everyone going "up" with the turbo outlet, then goin down again for the IC and returning up one more time?





Unbolt the turbo, rotate the outlet downwards = reduce at least by 40-50 cm the total piping and remove at least 2 turns = less pressure drops...
I will shot a picture about what I'm talking about next time I see my friend's car
