My thoughts exactly!! Keep up the good work and make sure you have it ready for our mazda track meet in sept so that you can beat skater down LOL. What do you think about that skater??

See if you can have them weld on a tubular front support around all that piping. I think SOME support is definitely needed.

You have to go that route unless you want to delete the windshield washer tank.

or you can just transplant the WW pump into a meth tank and mount it in the fender well like i did. not bad for an extra 20 bucks and well worth the added gain from the better pipe design.


btw the crash bar basically holds the entire front clip of the car together as its not just for accidents.

i'd like to see how that coupler is gonna hold up to all that heat once that manifold starts getting hot. Boost temps are gonna be off the charts :dmetal:

Thanks! No alignment yet. I should do that soon, though.

We were at Disney for a week (my husband ran the Disney marathon) and figured it was a good time to drop the car off with RR.

Who do you guys think I should have do the engine build? I can't decide.

EDIT: Thank you all for your comments and suggestions! I was debating on whether I even wanted to post anything, but I am glad I did!! I have already banned myself from MSF, lol.

Thanks for the update!
The IC routing differs a lot from the speed3 kit no? Does that have to do with our AWD drivetrain? Dang it looked so clean on the 3. Oh well if it works it'll do I guess. :drive:
