Go for it.


I went ahead and mounted the boost controller. I'm still waiting on the silicone hose so nothing is hooked up yet.


While looking for a good place to drill a hole in the firewall for the vacuum line I found a small miracle: a factory-plugged hole right where I wanted one!
It's behind the glove box near where the A/C lines come through. I twisted a screw through to see where it popped out.


See screw in the center of the photo:


I also wrapped the turbo to help the underhood temp. I'll wrap the downpipe later. I hate to because I love the gloss black.
