Lots of pics of my new turbo

I apologize for those of you who frequent "the jet" because i posted this there too, didn't want to relink all of this stuff...

Sorry the engine bay is so dirty, still winter here in pittsburgh, the salt is inevitible. Believe it or not, this entire kit was fabricated in ONE DAY. Clint (Winkty) and I did all of the work here at unnaturally aspirated. From 7am yesterday till about 11pm we welded and fit every part, without taking a break. Well, we ordered a pizza, but we ate while we worked. Upon testing the car, miraculously, we didn't run into one hitch. no leaks, no oddities, nothing. That never happens.


Answers, before the questions:

Yes, that is a bomz intake that we used to plumb from the intercooler to the tb. And, yes it worked very well.

For tuning I will be running a pro-m in a 3" tube with a sct pro racer pkg and 42's

Yes, my motor is built (8.2:1's with eagles and balanced rotating assy.)

The unusual looking forward curve of the downpipe was to make it possible to bolt each bolt in without problems. This worked perfectly.

And the downpipe is 304 stainless...

OK, now for my pictures, sorry they're so numerous... enjoy, and let me know what you think.

Looks awesome

My one critique. Wrap the exhaust manifold, and perhaps the downpipe, in heat wrap. Lower underhood temps. Great start to finish pics though. What happend to the SVT valve cover though?
