Thanks guys and yeah I'm not to worried at the moment. It's just every time I walk in the garage I crack a fat and can't get out. Then it makes me sad :(

The manifolds absolutely awesome, Geoff from Snort did a great job on it and was very good to deal with. I'll see how the turbo holds up before I praise him on that though.

Anyone got any tips/pics on running the cooler piping and mounting it?

this is how mine was done on my ed.
the intercooler can be mounted about 3" further back than mine if your not running air con..
the pipework on the passenger side was a bit odd due to having to go around the abs unit..

Thanks heaps! I thought I was going to have to hack in under the headlight but going around the abs module looks like the go. I took the air con out fully cause I thought it'd be to hard to mount the cooler behind the bar with it that far forward, air con doesn't fuss me anyway. I'm not relocating the battery cause I'm to lazy so I'll figure something else out that side. Thanks for the pics.

yea with the aircon in its factory position the intercooler does stick out a bit at the botton on a std bumper...

Mounted the cooler today. Hopefully will have the piping done over the weekend.
Organised a TI J3 and rising rate reg for now just to get it going. Will book in for a dyno as soon as I can though.
Pretty excited!
