Pitcrew front end enable me to hid the intake far away from the turbo, next to the frame rails an 3" hole was drilled out to put an air ducting from the front directing air to the intake enclosure.

That's sweet!

Did you relocate the master cyl. or is that where it is OEM on your model year (I'm a miata newb). I wish my master cyl was over there, the turbo heat is gonna be causing some concern when I get the car on the road. Also interested in hearing about where your coolant line go.

In any event, your engine bay is NICE.

Cusco strut bar and TEIN RA

The recirc pipe is now more of an cosmetic piece rather than functional.

it still recycles...there's just no real need. It's probably better in the long run if your type-S leaks slightly at idle like mine....this will ensure you're only sucking in air from the filter.
