      I wasn't trying to come off like I was yelling at you or anything, it was just an observation. I'm glad you are taking it seriously, most people would just overlook that to get the car together and boost it.

      i understand, i'm happy to have people critiquing this stuff, i want it to work right... All i know, is that any issues i have now... will be 10 fold when i have it boosting like i want it to be...so were going to do what it takes to get it all done the right way.

      well then since your open for advice I recomend gasket matching your ATP exhaust manifold to match the turbine inlet... thats only a T3 sized hole on the ATP

      you mean to just bore out the hole on the ATP manifold to match the gasket for more room?
      thats definitely doable. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      We haven't gotten to that part just yet, but i will be sure to get some photos of how we do it. - we also discovered that our oil feed line was not long enough to route the way we wanted to... so i have to order a new one of those, and along with that i still need my oil return. So were about a week away from getting the oil hooked up just yet.
      We actually took a break on the car last night, we all have full time jobs, so this is a project we can only do on nights or weekends.... but hopefully i can get you guys some more photos soon...

      Sick. Everyday I tell myself I should swap a VRT instead of building my 8v.

      Update... Day 3
      So we have the Intercooler mostly mounted...
      1. Rob Welded some tabs onto the intercooler that could mount to the bumper support
      2. Cutting of the Radiator support needed to be done to fit the intercooler
      3. mounting from the intercooler to the radiator support needed to be figured out.
      I wanted to the intercooler to sit completely behind the bumper without having to cut or mess with the bumper fins, i think it looks the best, and by moving the radiator back, you can fit a fairly good sized intercooler in there.
      we still have to cut away the stock fans, and the unessary radiator support, and then mount the radiator and mount the shorty fans. so far i'm loving how it looks. Howard also put the Downpipe in place... i need to buy a V-band for that sucker, and started messing with the oil lines.
      newly welded tabs on the intercooler

      the intercooler then mounts to the stock bumper holes

      fitting the intercooler into the radiator suppor is the tricky part... luckily I have a Euro Rad support, so its plastic and can be cut easily.


      need to cut a little more...

      third time is a charm... fits just right

      With bumper cover.

      (left to right - Rob, Rob's Brother (Jared) Howard Jr, Howard III)

      we started thinking about the intake manifold... this is just a scrap piece of three inch we had laying around, we placed it on top of the cut intake manifold, and it looks like it should work out pretty good.... we are going to need to relocate the fuel lines to enter and exit below the manifold, but thats about it...
