why have backseats at all if this cage makes it impossible for anyone to sit there? Unless of course, they're for some reason unable to be removed.

Note to potential buyer of this: My volvo can burn out just as good as that. I just saved someone 15 grand.

I like the preheated intercooler piping.

Also, rear mount fail.

And wtf with no wastegate exit pipe? Somebody failed Fluid Dynamics.

Of all the things wrong, I don't see a problem with that. The point of WG dumps is to point the friggin hot exhaust away from parts that can't take the heat. This one is dumping behind the car, just like the exhaust.

I think his point was that it would actually flow better with some amount of a tube on it. Hence the fluid dynamics comment.

I like how they wrap the hoses furthest from the turbo, but nothing else.

I've had cars with worm gear clamps on beaded pipes, they fail.


Why did they leave the back-seat in, and why is the cage unpainted?


LOL @ load-path (seriously, that's a brain basher)


LOL @ QA1 shocks with bent hardware.


LOL @ airflow to the intercooler.


LOL @ thermocouple 3' downstream


LOL @ Autozone gauges

Instead of clicking each and every link...

If by better you mean with a set flow rate then yes.

I'd worry about fluttering pressure behind that wastegate that may or may not allow 5.7L to overspin the turbos.

EWGs are win, but I'd feel a whole lot better with some pipe behind it to keep constant backpressure behind the plunger.

Maybe the Internets have desensitized me, but I have seen a LOT worse than this.

Sure, but this is being advertised as some sort of spared-no-expense professionally tuned car, and that's clearly not the case.

I don't think anyone would argue that this is as bad as it gets.
