Cool man, thanks. Did you do a how-to on it? Also did you retro-fit them with morimoto mini's? I saw you talking about them in another thread.

Basically, I pulled out the projectors that were there, removed the cut-off plates, and re-inserted them in the center holes where the reflectors were for the high-beams..

Then, I put a set of morimoto Mini's in where the original low-beam projectors were.

Work Continues:



I made a air-vent gauge pod, but after installing it and testing it out, its just too far away from my focused field of view. I dont want to have to turn my head or look so far away from the road to see the gauges, especially in the case of a Wide-band and Boost gauge. (thats the J&S in the pic, wide-band is still shipping)

Ill probably throw this thing up on the BST for a few bucks, ill head to the junkyard tomorrow to see what I can come up with.. I want something that is as stock-looking as possible, I don't need any unwanted attention.

On a side note, I re-wrapped the Downpipe with new heat-wrap as the old was showing signs of age and had a a small patch worn off. After wrapping it, I sprayed it flat black with some Ultra-High-Temp BBQ Paint. Incognito and effective.




Ill probably spend a few hours tomorrow on the car too, Replacing the PCV stuffs, and the oil pan. I need to figure out if my kit has a restrictor for the oil line or not.

You can custom the gauges into the cluster surround, here's what I did.

^I dont want to lose my SVT oil gauges, i like the look of them too much.. I think im going to do something with the steering wheel column. I was fiddling with it last night, i think i can do something that works and doesnt get in the way of my other gauges.

Let us know how much torque and HP you get once that turbo is going. Looks exciting!
