I got the other half wrapped yesterday, and made a dump for the bottom wastegate.

I have the hot side all mounted up aqa, with both wastegate on. Still need to do vacuum lines to those.

Here's a quick picture with the blanket and intake on the way it'll be.

Got the methanol tank mounted in the trunk. I'm getting really close to being done!

I picked up this gauge pod on Amazon for $14. I heated it up with a heat gun and pressed it onto the dash to get it a little more flush. Here is how it sat before the heat. Link below if anyone is interested.

Here's a picture after the heat gun treatment. The gauge was a little difficult to get in. I sanded the hole a little and it worked fine.

Here's a picture with the downpipe on. I was gonna plumb the wastegate into it, but I think I'm just going to cut another 2in hole and dump it right next to the 5in. Also im going to paint the downpipe black so it blends in a little better 😂

Also I started wiring the meth injection. The AEM kit makes it super simple. The only thing I haven't figured out is how to get the wires on the dash to where the gauges go. I really dont want to drill into the dash

I'm surprised the rear tires don't light up every time you open the trunk with all those stickers! :lol:
