Looking good. Your installer is doing a great job. You'll be very happy he's using v-band clamps for the exhaust when you go to work on it later and it lines back up perfectly every time. I did all my exhaust connections with v-band clamps.

The piping on top at the MAF is pushed together to tightly , the main pipe needs to be closer to the fender and the pipe needs to be pulled out of the coupler on both sides

The v-band is good but changing the downpipe from 2.5 to 3 inch wont help spooling or HP/TQ gains and it to close to the Raid , it will melt the shroud , it will need to be wrapped

yep its waaay to close to the fans, Im going to wrap them asap.

we assembled everything back today, and I moved the o2 sensor out of the dumptube way... was a bitch to make a new hole and bung since apparently Im retarded and lost the one I had.

good shit we had a lathe at hand and a SS bar near, we made a new bung from scratch and problem solved.

the bad... I scratched my bumped badly while assembling, the battery seems to be useless now because after a month being disconnected it just enough juice to turn the engine on once.

sounded great for a bit and ran rich as hell (base turbo tune ofc...) then I noticed livelink had crashed on my laptop so I turned the car off and rebooted the laptop, just to find out I wasnt able to turn it on again due the battery.

after getting the voltage on my battery to 9v trying to fire it up again... we noticed the engine was flooded with gas and well.. it was late so we called it a day, we hooked up the battery to the charger and gonna try again tomorrow...


pic related! (nvm the mexican plate)

Your piping is stuck way to far into the hoses going to the MAF tube , that pipe should be very close to the washer fill cap and not the batt , these need to be corrected or it will cause issues with the fueling

Man knows his shit. Him and I had to make the same changes. Car will drive awful for cruising because the MAF will read dirty air.
