So its like this, Last weekend got some time to work on it. Installed front mount, and finished fuel system. The autobahn88 induction pipe is huge and touches the intake manifold everywhere even after cutting a tab off, so I guess I'll get to see how durable they are...

Just read through the flame-fest of your original thread. Subscribed for awesomeness!

It needs rods, bearings, and a clutch before it gets a bigger turbo. It might see all of it before it hits the dyno.

Its actually the silicone intake pipe which is waaay bigger than stock. I had to insulate it with rubber in some spots. You can't really see it but it touches everything. Put a new map sensor and 3 port ebcs on after this pic.



Got a bunch of wiring done.



Made a trunk floor.






And got the front brakes on.



Heres a comparison of the brembo vs 4 pots.
