I'll get some pics from my actual camera tomorrow if anyone cares to see. Today I just popped the hood and was like "damn, it actually looks good now" and whipped out the phone and snapped a few. Got a few looks from the gf for that lol.

Anyways all the piping/couplers/fmic (except the black coupler on the turbo)
were from one of those ebay ic kits. The black one i cant really remember where....some cheapo online turbo place.

Yea it was I didnt know it really mattered when i first cut the piping. I was also planning on running a blow through maf and didnt have anywhere next to the tb where i could place the bov.

It doesnt seem to have any issues where it is but if i ever redo the piping i'll put it in the right place.

I would think the NAs would have the same amount of space behind the bumper...? But then again i've never really looked in the engine bay of one.

The barn doors get in the way of reaching the space behind the bumper.
