s**t that's some sweet looking gear there, hope the new head serves you well and gets things moving along a bit more efficiently.

Just a tip, if you're going to leave the screamer dumping somewhere underneath the car, make up another pipe to bolt onto the gate which exits and points out the side of the car just behind the front wheel, have a reducing cone to restrict the outlet slightly (to say 2/3rd's or 1/2 the diameter of the pipe) welded onto the end of it to give it that high pitch 'SSSHHHHHHHH' gate noise, will make ears bleed haha :twisted:

really nice ride ya got there James!

I got a question about your plumbing ..... on the cold side of your fmic where it goes from the alum pipe to the rubber bend as it goes into the TB, do you have any problems with that stock hose swelling? That thing dosent look like it could handle much boost?

have a good one mate!

Nah never had any probs with it although I have never seen it with a load on it. Only by free reving but I couldn't see any swelling... the place I work is getting a tig welder so ill be redoing the lot as two pieces with only hoses to connect from turbo to fmic to tb... all in either aliminium or stainless and once I get good ill make up my own catch can and overflow bottles and a cover for the pod
