Pick 3 threw me for a loop. For a sec I thought you were going to put the turbo on backwards haha.

Just remember, while a "special edition" the STO is commonly referred to as Stuff Taken Off, including the Torsen rear end. Might start looking for one unless you are planning on a one tire fire machine.

Nice build, though.

Yep, rumor has it that Mazda was trying to clean up leftover parts before the switch to the NB so they grouped together what they had, slapped a new color on it and called it a SE. That's why it was such a mish-mash of random parts that weren't ever put together in other packages.

Do you know how much you cut? I think I cut mine either too much or too little, because it's pinched between the manifold and the chassis that's between the shocktower and the firewall

to tell you the truth, i dunno...i don't even know if we have the remaining somewhere, if i do, i'll snap a pic.
but it was right before the weird last turn it makes, it matched perfectly.

also, depends on which direction you installed..so make sure you take that into consideration.

lol, yea...we need to take the car in to a shop for them to do a custom FMIC as we did not want to make a DIY, million coupling interncooler kit.

the hole idea was that it started and now we can move onto the MS
