Looks great! I agree about everything hanging very low. Guess it will be fine as long as they don't hit something.

its called a "blow through" setup. You can do this, it just limits the maf's range. Tuneability is a little easier with the bov before the maf when its vented to the atmosphere.

yes it is... if it doesnt make the numbers we are shooting for, we wont have to upgrade the cooler, just the turbo. if it does make the numbers we are looking for, we will just benefit from cooler charge temps, plus less pressure drop across it.

correct - system goes rich between shifts when you have it vta and it is on the negative pressure side.

its not the fact that it weighs like 3 lbs more than the stock intake. have you looked at your tb lately? and the small runners in the intake? plus its plastic... nitrous and boost arent the best thing for a plastic intake, plus this thing is running a 3 inch charge pipe, it would be retarded to try to cram all that air into a 65mm tb.

im not being a jackass, just trying to make things clear.

Got it running fairly decent tonight, gotta get the wideband hooked up on it tomorrow... everything works pretty well for a prototype... Hopefully tomorrow night there will be a road test.
