Installed some new goodies

After collecting parts over the past year I finally got around to installing everything and I am very happy with the end results. I installed B&B headers and dual out exhaust, B&B intercooler. RUF .9 spring, Fabspeed dump pipe, K27 Turbo and Fabspeed cold air intake. I also installed an NHS boost gauge I think that added the most HP well maybe not but it looks cool. I also removed the air pump and all of the plumbing using the plugs sold by our host.
There is a very noticeable improvement especially with boost. The boost seems to come on smoother and the power seems to be there throughout the RPM range. I have not had the car dyno'd yet but I hope to soon so I can see if there is any noticeable horsepower gains.
I sourced all of the parts from the classifieds here and as usual the members here were really great to deal with and as helpful as can be. Also Mike at B&B was really great to deal with anytime I called him for whatever I needed he got it right out to me. I bought the header installation kit from them and he also made me a shroud for the intercooler.
I wanted to only change things that I could simply bolt on and easily remove if I ever wish to return everything to original.

pretty sweet - well done

about the same way I'd started w/ my car - pretty much the way the car should have been from the get go!

the results are awesome, and yes very notable on the street... on a dyno I'd say you prob added 50hp or more

so your car is done, is now awesome... and you're in NY eh?

Joining us Thurs-Sun (or any component thereof) for turboPALOOZA? It is an absurdly good time... make us proud!

I would have love to attend the Turbopalooza but it is my 25th anniversary and after spending so much on the updates and my wife being so supportive I think it is only right I pay the same attention to her. Have a good time I hope you have a great turnout.

Oh, yeah - that's slightly more important than f'n around w/ us idjutz!

Happy Anniversary - that's a pretty tall accomplishment.

Enjoy whatever you have planned!

We'll have to meet another time then...

Similar to what i did with my car Mike. I ended up going with an .8 bar spring with these short tube headers though, even thinking of going down to .7 even. You are welcome to take a ride out east to my house one day.

Thank Al the adapter worked great and I use that silicon you gave me on almost everything. Maybe if you are free one Sunday we can take a blast out to the beach in the morning.

That parking lot is so dirty i hate going there these days., is why i suggested my house since i have a nice big driveway. I would be closer than the beach also, i for sure want to see the car and the mods you did.
