Few pics of my new project

Warning: Small blurry pictures.



iND did an excellent job packing everything up, thanks guys!







And yes, the garage is a mess! I need more space!

The install is super simple - I'm 50% done and I've only worked about 4 hours including about 30 minutes spent making the cuts for the cooler (cleaning and smoothing the edges).

I'll take more pics tonight and post up the progress.

Correct - There are a couple of items that in my opinion could use a bit more detail but the documentation is solid and probably the best that I've seen for something like this.

ChitownM3 - What step or stage are you in so far? I'm at the install injectors stage and it was getting late so I stopped for the evening.

If you don't have experience working on cars and a full mechanics set then I wouldn't suggest doing this at home.. Just my opinion.

It's not like building an engine - But it does take some finesse.
