    Got it done, only bad thing is my SS hood is hitting the compressor side of the turbo, going to try a stock hood and if that doesn’t fit do a cutout for it. Install was 8 hours. Trying to figure out how to post pics on here.

    Stock hood didn’t fit either, can’t run bigger turbos that’s false. Going to cut a hole in the hood, get it tuned and get the down pipe routed to the exhaust and put new tires on it. Here’s a pic of the heat shield and open air filter, can’t run a normal filter. Might move the battery to the back and run a filter.E9947B9D-EA58-441D-9C20-9799FFDED48A.jpg

    Getting stock hood cut this week and might have found a hood to fit off eBay, waiting for the seller to answer my questions.

    got the hood cut, need to clean it up and touch up. eBay hood should work but have to use hood pins. Might rain so hopefully get it tuned this week.

    So while I wait for the hood, I’m getting the parts to move the battery to the rear.

    Got some tuning in yesterday, did a couple of runs before my coating on the pipes started smoking pretty good, alittle lean and 3kr at 4000 rpm’s. Will change some stuff and take it out again. My turbo is freaking loud when it spools up. Only got to 4700 rpm’s before I let off do to running lean.
