Hey man,

I'm almost done with myTurbo build and we are will be making the downpipe on sunday. Where did you mount your o2 Sensors? Did you have to buy extensions or did you just ad wire to yours? This is the last dilemma that i am running into. Thanks man. Your write up helped a ton.

hey man whats up? im working on my intercooler piping useing exhaust pipe like u did,,my [problem is i cant run it the same way u did sense my car sits about 3 inches off the ground already...so what i had to do was make a 180 degree turn off the intercooler from the turbo to intercooler...has to all run from the driver side of the engine down near the tb and across the radiator and to then bend back into the intercooler...will this hurt anything? theres no room going under the car like i said and theres no room to come up on the pass side..not to mention the turbo im useing is from a eagle talon so both fresh air inlet and the turbo outlet are facing the same direction...any help? i only have one 180 degree turn and a 5 90's total in the intercooler piping..and maybe 3 45's

Sporadic, dude your write up has and is going to help me so much for my transition. I've been doing the turbo research for almost four months and I finally have an alright plan. All the pix are effin great. I still have a crap load of questions but once again kudos on a job well done.
