Decided to do the hood vent DIY to try and keep engine bay temps down.
Welded up a marmon flange to fit my dp to my BW turbo
Mid process tool rehab lol
Then decided to ditch the plm manifold for a few reasons. The biggest being its t3 and my turbo is t4 divided and didn't like the adapter from t3-t4. So I bought this Straightline Motorsports manifold. This thing is AWESOME. Great quality and amazing welds! Also t4 twinscroll
Got my intercooler mounted up.
And you can see here my air pump was deleted.
Alloy craft heater bracket relocation. Which is another really nice piece!
Just mocking some things up. I also wire-tucked the passenger side wires through the fender to keep away from the heat. And decided to keep my fusebox/EPS inside just turned and tucked further away from the mani. I don't like the thought of taking my fender off to look for a bad connection/blown fuse. And also want to keep it out of the weather. I'll make a heat shield eventually.
Just finished up my AEM wideband install tonight. And also wired up a terminal block to the spare 12v ignition on the fuse box for the rest of my gauges to get power. Made a mounting bracket out of some aluminum stock. Then wired a inline 30 amp fuse from the fuse box to the "hot" terminal block. And wired the "ground" terminal block to the stock dash grounds. Turned out perfect!
All hooked up and tucked in.
Next couple things I'll finish up is the passenger side intercooler piping needs remade/rerouted. And same with the second part of my down pipe.
Here you can see the down pipe sits right where my oil filter is. I really don't want to run a oil filter relocation, so I'll cut and re-weld the down pipe so it sits under the oil filter
Notice my dp sitting on top the oil filter, need to re-weld it to sit down where the other part of the dp is sitting.
