engine bay looks amazing, nicely done.
Only thing I would change are the blue or black coupler to be the same color.

yes. i am changing ALL of the ic piping this upcoming winter along with upgrading the intercooler, tubing the radiator support, and completing the traction bars.

today i got my upgrade from erick. and damn, what a nice kit. i was really impressed with the quality. but i mounted the slave in about five min, but the master is giving me problems. i have tried to call several people to help for ten min to get it in, yet the people I drop everything for to help, can not pick up there phones, or are tired, or busy... so instead of taking the car to work tomorrow i will be waiting till the weekend to get the car together as i have plans with family for the next two days. oh well.

i have pics of the kit and i will take pics of the kit installed and as i go. more progress to come.

You know, it's far easier to put in if you pull the brake booster off.

got the car together this morning. took it for a little test drive today. about twenty min. car shifts amazing. a friend stopped up and we got it installed in about thirty min. if ANY of you have a master cyl or slave shit the bed. i would HIGHLY recomend this kit from erick.

going to wash the car alittle later, and try to get a video of it tomorrow for everyone.

i am so pumped to have the car back again.

nothing had to be moddified at all. no cutting or anything. just so u know ur stock master cylinder is studded. were this one is not.. it had to be mounted with a nut and bolt. i do not see how u could do it with out an extra set of hands. once i had that extra set of hands it took about thirty min to mount.

if you look at the master i am sure everyone has heard of wilwood. so the quality is very good. :thumbup:

the brake booster is the hardest thing to deal with. moving that could make it easier, however i did not to install it.

i have been driving the car about once or twice a week latly, and the car is running well. i have had minor problems with the idle smoothing out. i have richened the tune alittle at lower rpms and it has seemed to help.

besides that the car has been running and pulling hard. also the car is now inspected for another year. :thumbup:

but this upcoming weekend is one of the bigger shows i go to every year. battle at the border. the car will be in my garage for the next week getting a three step wax job, the wheels will be pulled off and cleaned, calipers repainted, wheel wells cleaned, interior cleaned spotless, trunk lid rattle found and fixed. engine compartment polished and cleaned.

a busy week ahead.... pics to come later in the week.

the new ignition system is not going to be on the car for battle. i mocked everything up last night but time is limited for testing is something were to go wrong. everything seems to be a good fit. but i just do not want to take the chance on a two hr drive. so the stock ignition system will be on the car unfortunatly....

oh well, next year for sure. :) car is dolled up and ready for tomorrow. hoping the rain holds off. car looks great. :) pics in a little bit.
