Here's my current To Do list

-Relocate power steering reservoir
-mount wastegates
-shave and wrap headers/crossover
-mount intercooler
-plumb intercooler piping
-figure out upper radiator hose
-remove coolant tank, and find aftermarket replacement
-figure out MAF
-make downpipe (out the fender)
-install wideband and gauge
-install boost gauge/ boost controller
-install meth kit
-and probably a butt ton more

Also I don't know why my pictures keep posting sideways or upside down.

Small update, I picked up this center console from a local part-out for $40! Came with whole console and shifter. I want sure if I needed the brake cable, but he said I can come back and get it if needed.

And I also made up some brackets for a couple of the coils. So the wires aren't resting on the headers. And I also made some wires as well. I still need to go buy a couple nuts and bolts to tighten everything down .

Also! I picked up this workbench for $60! Definitely alot nicer having an area to work. I have a chromebit PC stick hooked up to the tv so I can Google or YouTube whatever I need.

I moved the power steering reservoir to the cabin air box today. Turned out pretty clean. I just zip tied the hoses to the top of the engine. I got the idea from another guy on here.

I'm working on mounting the intercooler today. I'm lucky enough to have a tig welding neighbor!

The build is nice but dammit if the console for 40 bucks is even more impressive :lol:

It seems you're fairly industrious, so a few welds later and you could resuse your stock 9C1 e-brake cable. I think a few here have done it (I believe there are pics posted by user "PPV")

Nice work bench as well!

I worked on the intercooler piping this weekend. I got it routed up to the turbo, but I still need the flange welded to a piece for the vband. I also routed it under and to below the throttle body.

I plan to 90 down from the throttle body and run this LS7 maf housing.

I also got both flanges for the Vband welded on. I didn't have much room to play with for the one coming off the driver side. So placement isn't perfect as far as flow, but I will have twin 50mm waste gates so I don't think it will be an issue. I also wrapped the driver side. I'm waiting on more wrap now to finish the crossover. Also, I sprayed them with VHT ceramic coat before I wrapped them too. To try to help fight off rust.
