    Garrett t3/t4 50 trim .48 a/r
    28x8x3 front mount intercooler
    2" charge piping
    Custom built short runner intake with VR6 tb (MMI Concepts)
    2.5" turbo back exhaust with magnaflow muffler
    Stage 3 Clutchnet 6-puck race clutch
    Megasquirt engine management (tuned by me)

    I plan on bringing it to a road course this coming season, i just want to make sure its nice and reliable for extendend periods of running. i guess i won't find out til i actually go right?

    LMK what ya think, before you ask, all work was done by me except the welding bits (exhaust and charge piping)

    Why the hell don't you have any heat? The engine makes heat as part of its normal operation!

    Other than that, nice DIY.

    i deleted the lines that go to the heater core. i had them hooked up last year but the heater core was not working anyway so i just deleted it. not like i can't re-hook it back up if i really need it someday. i don't drive it in the winter anyway so no biggie.
