apparently he had some issues recently because his motor ingested a "drill bit" that was left inside one of the charge pipes...
I bet it was a nail that got sucked into the BOV on the highway, hahaha

I could be wrong... but is that piping made of that fancy autozone special exhaust bends, a piece of coolant hose, and a pvc pipe coupler from lowes?

Dear god, don't drive with any kind of precipitation. At first I didn't see it and kept looking at the w/g and was wondering wtf you guys were talking about. He better route that w/g to the valve cover, pronto.

I like the valve cover better. It's better to have a positive pressure oil system. Makes those turbo seals last longer.

I would assume this is mid build, but it doesn't change the fact that he fails.
