    Nothing new, got me a chop saw and metal cut-off blade to help with the cutting of the charge pipes. Honestly haven't done much with it yet. Hopefully this wknd.

    Got my down-pipe adapter made and several couplers in the mail. Just need to start cutting to get the fitment right. Once all sized and cut, all charge pipes will be coated ceramic satin black and I'll heat wrap the header and down-pipe. Current down pipe will be sized down to match the 2" exhaust.

    Turbo is soooo tiny!!

    Ceramic satin black like I did my wife's Altima intake.

    HKS sequential BOV - not sure if I'll even need it at low boost and the drive by wire throttle.

    Removed the tri-blade diffuser. From what I've heard, I like the sound better than with it in.

    Loaded her up.. off to be fixed back to "stock" - then I'll get her back and put her back to TEKSMRT style. Lol

    From the looks, new radiator support and radiator, new headlights, new bumper - couple more odds and ends and I'll get her back. Hail damage this year in Dallas was bad, so they won't even start on this car for over a week.

    jeez, i just drooled on my mousepad! looks like your making good progress, to me.

    what about using a Subaru top mounted intercooler? short runners = less turbo lag.

    might be a good time to check out a custom hood...

    any thoughts on custom paint while its in the shop?

    Once I have the current setup and running, i'll definitely make tweaks. New Turbo manifold being one of them. No room in the engine bay for a TMIC that I can see, but who knows!! I looked at the Carbon fiber ones but not sure I like the designs. We'll see!

    I like those fiber hoods. no chance I'd pay for one though. C.O.B. here. I also want the duraflex front bumper on ebay, but too cheap to buy that either. good luck with it, whatever you decide.

    Can't like a post like that but I definitely feel you. At least they let you keep the mods to sell, I had to send mine to the insurance company as is.

    I had most of them, but to get the payout I did it was just better to send everything in. I stripped what I could off of it and it'll get transferred to the next project. Any ideas on your next project?
