      Well, there's no bumper structure there. Other than that I don't see what's wrong with it, but that could be a biggie for a street car.

      To be fair he was going so slow a wreck might not be that catastrophic.

      So a multitude of points and some irony going on: Is the amount of work done to produce this set up, the pretty expensive cost to produce this setup, the fact you can not go out and buy these parts and have to have every piece shipped to you, the volume of time to make this set up plus needing a tig welder.....with my point being.....the top silicone coupling set completely cancels the need for the v-band kit 2" below it.

      Silicone couplings will hold vast amounts of power, this guy has these most expensive silicone coupling money can buy, Vibrant, plus he didn't get the standard Vibrant yet the hump version, in addition a boot lock kit too? Like 1000whp and your hump coupling will hold, yet all awesome, trick, and not diw. Just to cut up the pipe 2" below add one of the most expensive fittings possible? What the? A Vibrant v-band, and those aren't your normal v-bands yet special o-ring v-bands made to withstand boost.

      The dude went big money and effort on both, yet either system 100% cancels out the need for the other. In addition being secondary,
      the amount of fabrication and tig welding done for this, you'd weld the ic aluminum pipe up to the turbo incorporating a single silicone union there (or single v-band). You did a double whammy union...to travel ~9"-12" to the turbo to another union. And the kicker? If there's no tig welded boot lock kit on the turbo union too...then it's a waste as then that union would fail while the one in the picture wouldn't...then..got to do them on the cool ic side too including the throttle body union.

      There is the possibility we welded piping off his turbo, to drop down, eliminating the need for 2nd turbo union , yet probably not as most people don't weld ~9"-12" of hard pipe onto there turbo (yet do weld onto the fmic piping, bringing it up to the turbo so the turbo remains/appears stock). Yet either way, still have the double whammy connectors going on.

      I see nothing wrong with this, hell I may add this to my BMW. I'd much rather pull a v band than try and reset a silicon expansion coupler every time I pull the IC. Even the good stuff gets a bit blown out after a lot of install. You need a snickers dude

      ......hmm....not sure if trolling me or you misunderstood. By pulling off and on the v-band you no longer need the above setup...that is what I spent a novel explaining. If you preference unbolting the t-bolt on the v-band you do not need the expensive silicone system above it.

      That is a incredible amount of stupidity to put that in a truck that can maybe hold 1500-1800 pounds in the bed stock.

      Even new 1 tons hold something like 3500 max.

      At least they tied it down so it wouldn't move....

      On that note- how the heck did they even load the thing there?
      Where were they taking it?

      Truck was riding on the bump stops and the road looks bumpy.
      Amazing it made it that far (even if just 100 feet).
