Got it running! Stupid PATS system wont let it run for more than 2 seconds, but all of that will be taken care of on Tuesday when I finally get my tuning software. Here are a couple pix of the "almost complete" project and a very short teaser of the engine running...

interesting intake setup you have... just wondering why you did that? looks like you had plenty of room to stop after the valve cover... its probably how the pics look thats throwing my eyes off.

I wanted to keep the filter in the fenderwell, the wiring was already on that side of the car for the maf, and the battery would have needed to be relocated to the other side if i wanted to switch sides with the intake. that was the easiest, cheapest route at the time...
