So I ended up using some 16 and 1x4 to make everything. It was pretty simple really.

A little update! Just over a year of ownership now and the car has come quite a long way. Probably not everyone's idea of a good build but I love everything about it.


Recently installed the spulen boost pipe kit. Picked it up for $147 shipped on USP's black friday sale. Talk about a DEAL!!!


Turbo muffler comparison



I noticed a decent spool increase. At least 200rpm sooner from what I saw in datalogs.



Install was relatively painless except for the TOP mounts. They took a little massaging to get on.


Console mount airlift controller



Trunk setup (temporary) also not complete in this picture. I mounted the compressor on the right side and manifold on the left.


New stance with my SSR GT10 installed. I love it!!
