Ok so I cut up the CAI and the coldside I bought from sporadic and got them both painted black. Once they dry I'll post some pics of them. It fits perfectly and even kept the mounting bracket on the CAI which gives it a little more stability. Thanks to sporadic, I am picking up the proper T's for the coolant lines. Thanks for the heads up. I ordered some new banjos to match up with the 3/8 for the water lines. The banjos I had on the turbo before were pretty big. Ordered 5/8 oil drain flange to tap into the oil pan. I'll post pics when they come in. Also ordered the fitting for the oil sandwich plate to finish that up. It's getting there. Just getting all of the little things. Soon enough it will be done.

Ok here is the photos I promised for the coldside. (Don't hate on the coupler, just there as a reference)
The top half of the CAI that I cut:
The two halves of the coldside:

Coldside put together:


I'll have some more test fit pics as more stuff comes in. I'll add some tomorrow of the coldside installed.

All of them or just the ones of the coldside piping? Cause I'm able to see all of them on here don't know if it is because I'm the one that posted them.

I'm fixing it now I didn't know making a folder on photobucket would delete them on here. Sorry guys, new to this whole thing.
All photos should be fixed let me know if any other photos have issues and I'll get on it. Thanks for the heads up. Can't have a build thread without pictures.

All of them should be good now. I even had problems with the coldside pics after a while but those I never put into a folder. Don't know what happened, I was able to see them all day then last night they went away, I had to redo them as well. I'll keep an eye on it.

Sorry guys having some delays in funding right now so things are gonna be slowed down. Next week or so, gonna get the tuner from Tom. Try to get intercooler mounted and run the hotside piping. Then just patiently waiting to finish. Didn't want this to be drawn out thing but s#@t happens.

Going through a bunch of crap right now that is causing me to place the build on hold. I apologize to everyone who is following this thread. I am not stopping the build completely, but am going to have to split it up over a longer period of time than I wanted to. Trust me when I say this s##t is killing me right now. Long story short, I paid for my school out of pocket so when the time came I would get a big financial aid check and would be able to use that to finish the build. Then my school got audited and owes the government 2.5 mil so all of my funds are being held with no end in sight. Wish me luck and as soon as this gets resolved, I post some updates. Please be patient with me.

Wow, good luck! Kudos to you for paying for your schooling out of pocket and not racking up loans.
