your lower pipes are very similar to mine. my recommendation is to change the hose clamps to t-bolts. you'll have big issues blowing pipes apart.

thats why its hack-o-licious man :P

I'm sure i'll blow pipes off all day long at 22psi, but i can put a pipe back on when i know how little money i have in it. Someday I'll change the BOV section and T-bolt everything. I still have to see what it actually runs like first!

not bad, the welds look decent for the old MIG

You really went all out to get that 24" in there!

its a 20 year old 110v mig at that too! Hey, at least it holds.

I think in the future I'm goign to come up with some kinda chin spoiler to tie it all together. It did kinda hurt to sawsall that bumper that much, but I dont think another front bumper will be that hard to come by.

How fun....

Got it all done, took it around the block and the first pull it didn't even make 15psi before it blew a pipe off.... thanks for jinxing me Mafix!! :P

Put about 150 miles on it so far. It pulls like a bad bitch now! I blew a pipe off twice and decided to turn the boost down to 14psi. It pulls decent there and hasn't popped a pipe off yet.

Spool time is basicly the same. I haven't noticed any change in when the power comes in. I can though feel a little heat soak goingon in that top pipe. I think I'm going to move it eventually and build a big heat sheild around it. Maybe vent the hood as well.

Looks bad ass dude, and 5 genius points for clocking down. I am tired of seeing 180 degree IC bends right above the valve cover on All Tracs.
