Intercooler, in these pictures you can see the new ends welded on, one side 2.5", the other 3" Don does nice tig work, I wish I could tig And I wish I had access to one so I could learn how to.
Dirty engine bay/manifold shot, everything is almost back together.
More engine bay shots. Waiting the the throttle body to be tigged up, then it can be started.
Mhhmmmmm, the exhaust turned out sick.
Yes I had to hack at my valance, but I'm going to clean it up, and eventually get a M3 bumper, so it won't matter anyway.
Intercooler looks crooked here, but it isn't tightened down yet. It's straight in the other pics.
Oil drain hole drilled and tapped, then the fitting was threaded with JB Weld.
Turbo in it's final position.
Wastegate placement, and plumbing.
And one of my favorite parts
I've never seen anyone do this, many guys leave it in the engine bay, or glovebox, ect. So I thought I would be different. It looks stock and very clean. I love it!
Please ignore my sh!tty a$$ interior. I will be swapping it all to black sometime.
So cliff is:
Finished all of the exhaust
Engine is all but buttoned up
Interior is done and back together
Wastegate is plumbed and mounted
All gauges are done
O2 sensor and Wideband installed
Boost controller is finished
So what's left is intercooler/intake piping
Little things that I'll remember later.
Comments/tips appreciated and welcome fellas!
Oh, and btw, boost FTDKW!
