with some many posts and questions in the past 2 months, i think i am coming close to the end of my DIY project. thanks to the help from many of you guys.

before install/cleaning


after cleaning


cleaned camshaft covers

wrapped manifold and wastegate

re-routed oil line, BOV hose and all vacuum hoses
before

after


still have some more work to do, but they should be minor. (oil catchcan, wideband, alignment, tuning, i think thats all)

just wanted to say thank you to all of you guys (leo, rich, de, mike and more) and will keep you guys updated.

Looks great.

haha, i know i know......just cant help it. i hate to let dirty things get by while doing installs. always cleaning/wiping while installing.

sam, if you have time this week, can you swing by? love to check out your headlights and also swap the tail lights back. i am thinking to drive down to turboeast this weekend if possible to do the VB and tuning.

willie, just let us know.
