Default A few pics of the smurf

Havent been about much, but finnaly got my clutch ordered from prostreetonline- and while waiting i did the brakes, painted the wheels, and finnally finished the intercooler setup..





Sorry i dont have anymore detailed pictures of the intercooler setup, but to be honest its just a copy of the stripes kit done in black pvc(on the coldside).

Let me know what you think!

Edit: Oh, and since this is a miata forum i figure you guys like small cars, check out my triumph gt6, its a 1973.. almost complete restoration.

wow looks like those charge pipes go around your *** to get to your elbow

i brought my hotside pipe down between the motor and body, instead of going all the way towards the pass side as JimmyB intended
