Damn, getting air leaking somewhere on the six or so ft of intake tube or the intercooler. . this doesn't let it idle. so i got a scooby that idles at 1900 rpms. runs fine but i got to find the leak. that is all, drive around.

update; hole in silicone elbow from stick. i have to get new tanks for the fmic that exit left and right instead of down, and reroute the hampster tubes through the foglight housings. like everybody else. damn. luckily i had a spare elbiw in the trunk. fixed in five minutes. :)

other method i used was to spray starting fluid over where i thought the leak was and if the car idled better, then i know the general area of the leak.
