Best of luck to you! I'm ordering an aem wideband on the first. Already have a boost gauge that will do for now until I get a matching boost gauge. Probably gonna save up for the aem truboost. Thinking of mounting the gauges where the display is on the dash. I have an aftermarket stereo so I could care less about outside temp or if it says Ford focus. Gonna experiment with that this week hopefully.

Well today I ordered the SCT from Tom and also ordered an aem wideband. Just one step closer to getting finished. Next on the list is mafia, downpipe, exhaust, and tune. A couple vacuum lines but nothing else I really need. The end is in sight. Once this is finished, it will be time to move on to the engine build. Not much more I can get done for Sept but come oct , the build will be put in to overdrive. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks man. Hopefully you will be able to get your build going soon. OK, well I talked to Tom and he's gonna send me a N/A tune for now until I get the rest of my build done. The man is awesome and great to work with. Wideband should be here in a couple of days. Lucked out the eBay seller is in the same state so should be here Friday or Saturday. Nothing to do now but wait. If I do anything else before October I'll take pics and post.

Here are the pics of the water lines using the same heater hose tees as sporadic.


Another update, I decided to switch my downpipe flange for the 3rd time lol. Should be here in a few days. Finally found a shop that can make my downpipe for me.

Looks good. Those Ts worked well for me, but they were definitely due for replacing after 4 years and 25K miles. When I swapped in the new turbo they just broke apart from being brittle. I did end up using the same type of Ts again, but next time I'll use metal.

This is a great read. You should read through it before installing your water lines.
