      it's back up. But what's that about the power steering? ...... there's not a chance in hell that's gonna work with the factory pump. Unless I'm completely looking at it wrong [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_scratch.gif[/img]

        I haven't mocked it up. I was able to assemble the intake without having to remove the mounting holes for the pump, but whether it fits or not is in question.

          It's not going to fit.

            have you tried the EDIs with the lightwieght pulley? Id think it would be about the same wieght as the stock pully. In case you're wondering Im thinking of adding the wheel too since OBD2 is kicking my ass.

              Bastard. I measured it and if I had a 5mm spacer it'd fit. I will just need to lift some weights now.

                That's the light weight one? The pretty blue ones that are aluminum?

                    I'm still in shock how clean this build is. I'm used to your builds where the whole damn engine and engine bay is dripping with oil and dirt.

                      LOL, don't count him out yet. It's still going into the same car.

                      BTW, you'll have to throw on your camera mount and get some vid when this thing is running.

                              Are those pistons high comp?
