like this dumb *** ^^^^ i was at the dyno today and a truck they had in the shop someone just dropped off had the waste gate open atmospheric under the hood. Wasn't even an attempt to route it or have it somewhere that it was not blowing ~1600* exhaust gases on the motor.

Funny.

If it's not in a hot spot, functionally, I don't see the problem with home depot PVC charge piping.

What? The little plastic straw acting as an oil feed?

I'm surprised it hasn't melted and blown hot oil everywhere causing a huge fire. Then again I'll never ever understand people who actually mod cavaliers.
