    Lol, I'm not too worried about the understeer, all the boost far outweighs any concerns.

    Here's the latest progress, cold side pipes complete.

    Looks like I'll be making at least the start of a full exhaust before I get it fired up. Stay tuned...

    Fixed the small images ^
    lol, all the cool kids are doing it!

    I was going to do side exit at least to get it going but the fact that it could effect my tune(at least it would be on the rich side though) with outside air getting in makes me not want to mess around with it.

    I get the idea behind the one big H-Piped BOV, however would it be cleaner and more efficient to run one per bank?

    Cleaner - probably, It would be one less merge to weld.
    More efficient - probably, though I'm not an expert in fluid dynamics.
    More expensive - without a doubt, I got the flange and BOV for free. Any quality BOV will run you about $200 these days.

    It all comes back to goals for a given build. For this one in particular I'm on a budget, and I am not making a lot of boost so the H pipe should be of minimal concern. With all project cars the door is open for changing it up in the future, but this was my path of least resistance to get this thing moving again.

    I wound up making custom downpipes because the hater pipes were going to be an issue for three reasons:
    1. Outside Air could easily get to my O2 sensor, throwing off my tune.
    2. I would have to scrap the hater pipes completely to go full exhaust
    3. 2G DSM O2 housing would not allow for full exhaust

    These mandrel bends are not sharp enough to get it back under the car with the factory 2G DSM housing.

    My solution was to start making the full exhaust and leave it just short enough to start the car and possibly drive it.

    So I started with this ^

    [​IMG]
    Around lunchtime I had this ^

    Mounted up with O2 sensor in.

    Sneaking out under the car. I will probably run it like this for a bit. I want to see how cool it sounds :)

    Here are both mostly finished pipes pre-paint.

    That's a sneak peak for a future episode. I posted the latest video today one post up if you've not seen it.

    Thanks Josh. Lots of work, I'm not the best fabricator but I prove over and over again that trying is at least 75% credit.

    Such a monumental task, and you just keep plugging away! I admire your drive to see it through to the finish:thumbup:

    That, and i’ve always wanted one(or a supercharged version)

    Took my first stab at making braided lines with AN fittings last night. It went fairly well with the typical painfully stabbing my fingers with the cut braided line.

    This is all for my oil cooler which runs from a filter sandwich adapter.

    [​IMG]

    You can see that I opted to put the more 'murican fittings in the bottom of the next image.

    [​IMG]

    Hoping for the first start with turbos in the next week or so and this was one more thing to check off the list. I'll probably try to actually mount the oil cooler tonight.
