Well,
Been piecing together everything I want now that I can.

I have, ready to install -
Stainless works downpipes
CRP manifolds
RX catch can (been debating this one)

Have installed in the past few months -
Wagner intercooler (still waiting to find a full race setup)
RCI Skid Plates (the front piece ended up having to stay off since it doesnt fit with the Wagner)
XS Power charge pipe
Full race hot pipes
Full race intake
Full race radiator

And what do ya kno'
Exhaust leak on the passenger side has made itself both audible and visible, so add that to the vacuum pump oil leak, as well as the valve cover gasket itself.
But, hey, I'm 100miles from hitting 140k miles.

So next weekend is going to be a long one for me.
Gonna swap it all out.
And the only reason I'm not doing turbos at the moment is because I don't have that kind of cash at the moment, but if someone would like to donate some, I'd definitely be thankful :D

Well my manifold replacement and downpipe install went... ok.

Required two different torque wrenches for the appropriate values; having professional mechanic friends definitely helps on memorial day weekend when you need to raid their tool cart for the select tools you now absolutely know you need to borrow.

Being quite mechanically inclined definitely helped for doing it in my carport.
I would have hated my life if I had had to have done any bit of that job without cement below me and a roof above me.
But a 2 post lift would have made it sooooo much easier.!

But here we are now, made sure no leaks and uploaded the canned tune from my Livewire.

Just now ordered my @Boostking tune though...

Now I'm truly excited!

I'll owe yall the picture for this update. Sorry.
