Going clockwise from the throttle body the bov flange is just after the first coupler facing down. You can sorta see it in this pic where I was trying to use the stock bpv. I am going to weld a tial in where it makes the most sense.

As far as cooling, I haven't pushed to too hard yet, but when the hot side is hot the cold side is still cold.

Update on power steering delete- for daily driving its awesome I feel very connected with the car even low speed corners feel great, for autox Im not sure how its going to go.

Going to weigh and corner weight the car next week, I will post the numbers when I have them.

thanks for all the info on the CXracing intercooler....

bet your car will be in the 2500 lbs range, maybe lighter which would be awesome

Car weighs 2560 in street trim, autox will be less, and there are still areas to remove more weight. This is with half tank of gas.

Front axle 1540 lb
Rear axle 1020 lb

Tried to corner weight but I don't think it was very accurate.

Alright race weight should be 2490 without drivers. Minimum gas for autox and race wheels. Race wheels and tires are 10lb less per corner.

You were "spotted" on nasioc. I linked this thread to the OR Spotted thread in the NWIC section.

Never had a problem with collapsing running up to 23psi. Mustang dyno read 330hp and 360tq @21 psi. If you are going to be running lots more power or psi you can buy a hard pipe too.
