Default Quick Preview of The Setup

Some people are asking for pictures of my setup. My brother got a new camera, so I asked him to take a couple pics.

Sorry for the night shots. Day shot's soon. Last minute thing.

Oil cooler setup, coolant reroute, and the turbo manifold were the main focus.

Enjoy.

The whole setup is sweet, but the temp gauge in the cluster is hot fire. Is it as easy as it looks?

Very nice, I'm digging the inlet in the nose and the temp gauge. Also like the color, I'd been toying with painting mine GT3 RS bright green and I think you made my mind up about it.

baby teeth? u mean the tow hooks... lol i planed on taking them out as soon as i make a nice racing tow hook. and use that space to make a intake for the turbo or something....

thanks for the comments. i have to clean under the hood everything is real messy and dirty. when i have time ill clean it and show some pics of the car. it just came back from a 8 month sleep and really dusty and stuff.

Looks like a regular Autometer gauge cup to me. That is pretty much what I plan on doing with mine as well.

Nice and rough...I wish i could do that to my bumper.

Is there a how-to on that water temp gauge?
what sender?
how did you cut out the pcb?
how did you mount the gauge?

Thanks


How is that steeringwheel adapter?
