IC piping route with that massive IC. The compressor outlet is only a few inches away from that front lower subframe with the compressor outlet clocked down. I have the same turbo, and was going to do the exact same thing, but then I found an IC setup on here that doesn't require all that. I just have to take a gamble with a Honda radiator! haha. we'll see. I have a large external oil cooler, I hope that helps.

Golfball, I never got you're name when you were here(Lubbock) I'm the guy that was on the little dirtbike. Oh, remember that guy with the red camaro that ran off the end of the track? He bought a truck from the same member on here that I bought my IC setup from in Ohio! haha small world. I'm close to being able to turn the key on with my galant and I'll be heading to OKC to get it tuned after I get some break in miles on it. I'm trying to hurry so I can make it to tx2k11 in Houston this year.

so figured i would give my engine bay another facelift... i still wasn't happy with it.



before



after


also lowered 2 inch's... i need a bit bigger wheel but its gettin there.



and lastly made myself a little coil on plug set up.
started with some coil packs from pull-a-part off a intrepid



mocked em up on a spare sheet of lexan i had laying around.



finished looking like this




then for fun i added a little oil cap touch.

Hahaha. You can't really see in most pics how beat up the hood is, but you can see all the dents from the under side while it's open!

Is it just a reflection, or is the driver fender caved in too?

It actually almost looks like that pic was photochopped with a white streak across the fender, intended to be glare. I considered this carefully before asking the question before.

It's all good. At least this vr4 is still out there, and on the road!

havent updated this in a while. Cars still running good.

i added an AEM twinifire to the coil on plug set up.... DAMN. car freaking rolls out hard now.

also it blew out the exhaust gasket again... so fixing that added to how much faster its feels as well...



i gotta go get it re-dyno'd because i would put money its almost 700 wheel now.

Do you know anything about how they had the Dyno Dynamics setup? A real load based dyno will pin point ever week point in any setup. My car was on power for 6 seconds in 3rd gear, that would normally be a 2nd threw 4th gear run. Nice numbers if you made 634awhp. Get that thing back on a dyno with the better ignition and see what it can do. Nice looking car for sure.
