FWD though? Why.... whyyyyyy!?

All the work looks to be taking place inside a storage unit. Props for that... I've been having a hell of a time in my storage unit w/ no 120V source and no overhead lights. Maybe they have those two luxuries.

mmm... is it me or does it look as if the supercharged air is plumbed into the intake pipe of the turbo... but there is a filter in front of the turbo as.. So any compressed air that leaves the supercharger is entering into an unsealed camber..

Other then that.. piping night mare. He should have put a Y-pipe in the hot side piping and just dumped the supercharged air into area. It would have made the piping less of a nightmare.

That definitely belonged in the backseat - then they could've left the original driveline intact for the "twin charged twin engine awd corolla".
