Got some last minute parts in today.
Aeromotive Adjustable FPR
Aeromotive Fuel Pressure Guage
42DD MAP Sensor Flange
Now where talking lets see what happens
^^^Big Turbo build lots of pics^^^
Best shop for repair and custom workin ma
Haha...JC, my mechanic said the same thing. The O2M is huge in relation to the motor, and its a heavy beast. The motor looks so different in the car without all the emissions bs. Talk about loads more room and all for nothing. All that extra space is now going to turbos and piping...well worth it, I HOPE!
Its a K04-22 but its been ported out It was only on my car for about 4 months and Im not gonna say I didn't give it some gas here and there but there is no shaft play. I wasn't sure if there was really any difference between mine and a regular K04 but I had my turbo guy check it out and he said its deffinitley been modified.

Got some more of the poweder coat back. The vlave cover didn't turn out as nice as the SEM. I haven't seen it first hand but if its not up to my standards ill just take it in to get redone when I take my wheels. Im tired of waiting so I can live with it for now.
Also got my black PTP turbo blankets and black heat wrap in the mail today. Ill have pics of everything thus far this weekend.

Bolted on the valve cover and SEM manifold. Turbos will be back from powder coat tonight and starting the layout on monday. Stay tuned
Dont mind the stock fuel rail, just plugging the injector ports till we get the custom rail finished.

Sex should be like a Civic; slow, obscene, and loud enough for the neighbors to hear.
Turbos arent in yet. Im going over there tomorrow morning to decide on the layout of where we are going to mount them. JC wants to either put both behind the motor or both on the driver side of the motor. I want one top mounted behind the motor and one on the drivers side. I have final say so we will throw the turbos in tormorrow in different configurations to figure out which works best.
That transition pipe between the old SMIC's is long gone. We left the mounts for the crash bar connected. Thats what we used for the FMIC supports. We ground the ends off and then welded some thick metal L brackets to it and drilled two holes to connect to the IC, worked out pretty good. So basically yeah, the radiator support is the only thing upfront now. I figure if I wreck in my car I'll probably be doing something extremely stupid, at an excellerated rate of speed and that wimpy crash bar isn't gonna save anything anyway

Normally yes but becuase of where the turbos will be sitting and where the pipes are running there is going to be a very limited amount of space to fit everything. Doing it with the motor in will let us know where we can run the hot exaust pipes without melting anything. It also is giving us a good Idea of where we are going to have to re-route alot of the hoses and what not. Without even having the turbos in yet we can already tell we're gonna have to move the heater core hoses so even though the fab work will be alittle harder with the motor in, it gives us a good picture of where everything is being layed out.
I'm certainly not the first person to remove the crash bar, I think it will be ok, if not I guess I will have two sides to a really fast car

Intercooler is mounted, we're just waiting on the stainless piping to get here.
The dirtiest my car has ever been
Used the crash bar mounts and some metal stock we had laying around, worked out pretty good. Definitley needs to be cleaned up though.
Also, ordered Maestro today, hopefully gets here before the fab is complete. Will keep you posted
BTW OP, the radiator is not going to love the airflow available to it now, especially with the possible heat hike generated by the compound setup.
