They're for oil pressure, fuel pressure, and water temp.

I thought my phone didn't save them, but they saved on my phone instead of my memory card for some odd reason.

Hmm, I say it's lighter than stock, but I haven't weighed them, but I'd say I'm 95% sure it is. It's also louder than stock, but not obnoxious, just a decent tone and a little louder.

I may be getting seats from another guy, but just because they're M3 rears, which is what I really want. What else is on this car? Does it have a black armrest?

This is going to take forever with my slow A$$ satellite internet

Please ignore any and all leaks that include:

Oil pan (need to blow up)
Valve cover (fixed now)
Rear diff (need to buy a seal)
Power steering (getting fixed now)




Turbo placement, elbow going under the subframe, too much work to move the A/C compressor to go over the subframe. Whenever I go built motor I will do that. You can also see the turbo feed line.

Back view of the turbo.



Front view



What's left of my bumper



Another view



Table of some parts, HKS BOV, gauges, covers, ect.



Wheels, anyone want em?



Stealth black intercooler



Tips, one set for me, one for Don



View on lift. I know, it's dirty, very unusual for her. Also waiting on Amber's old M3 moldings, if she ever PMs me....



Porsche 803 3.5" Maf



Old exhaust, going to Franklyn (the muffler that is) think I can get anything for the cats from a junkyard or scrapyard?



Downpipe. Beginning of 3" turbo back exhaust



Muffler with tips welded on



And again with the hangers. Everything is going to be attached at the stock locations.



As far as we got today, resonator.



Side view of turbo



Exhaust



Back view of resonator



Downpipe, now remember, everything is just tacked welded for now until it's all together. We're also adding V-band clamps for quick removal and O2 sensor bungs.
