nice looking build but i must ask one question. why come out of the ic and go around the frame rail. why not straight into the tb?
I had originally wanted to do exactly this. The problem is that there is not enough distance between the IC and TB for a proper MAF setup. The MAF sensor would be too close to the bend coming out of the IC and too close to the TB (Backwash). Since driveability is very important to me, I compromised and ran the pipe around the frame to get a long MAF tube.

no heat soak with top mount?
Good question. As Mother Focus pointed out, the air filter is getting fresh air while moving, but while sitting still, it is under the hood and will intake some hot air. The air-to-water IC seems to easily overcome any effect this has. My IAT's are pretty much always kept equal to ambient except under boost. The turbo also runs very cool in this location. Most of the heat is behind the engine. I have taken a lot of temp readings with an infrared temp gun. The highest temp I have ever recorded on the turbo center housing is 170 degrees F. Thats while the engine is still running after long drives or WOT pulls.

Please keep in mind this is just a stock 2.0 on 8psi. I gently rolled into it in 1st gear, trying to baby the stock clutch.

Great work. Looks like it spools fast. I removed that tri-bar piece from my BOV eventually. I got tired of it sounding like I ran over a rat every shift.

I could hear it in your video.
I put up with the sqeek until I heard it on video, and suddenly all coolness went out the window. I much prefer the simple woosh sound anyway without the squeeker.
