    Need it to keep the rain and snow until next year, don’t really care what it looks like. Car needs paint pretty bad anyways.

Sounds really good through the 3” cutout. Only stuff I need to do is relocate the battery, get the new hood and then have it painted or wrapped. The only thing that I need to do is wrap the down pipe to where the Y use to be.

      • New tires feel good, 7 years on the old ones, they were cracked and dry rotted. Also my part throttle tune is really good, cruised up the mountain at 50 mph with no problem, temp got to 204 degrees with the fan switch on.

        • Ordered a new 38mm wastegate dump tube, other ones wouldn’t fit , too tight of space, So ordered flexible tube.

            • Got it done, had trouble with the wastegate dump tube, going to have to modify it. Need to finish tunning, swap transmission pan, relocate the battery, then I’ll be done.

                  • Got the wastegate dump tube on, took about a inch and a half out of the bend and welded it back up. Dumps out the bottom now which should keep things cooler. No pics, maybe next time I jack it up.

                    • I think I’m going to do the battery relocation tomorrow. Also install the new coolant res. and do the air filter from the turbo to fender well.

                          • Going to redo the turbo inlet, some say the tube might collapse under boost. Sent a email to Intense, replied it probably hold, well I’m not risking a $2400 turbo to probably, so ordered 4” exhaust pipping and silicone connectors. Should get them next week.
