Thanks! The car had some new K16's from the WG's being stuck. However some of Kevin's ZC's are planned for it over the winter.

loving the build/refresh! thanks for the reply.

16/24's are STILL the best daily combo ( IMO ) for a dual duty car.. and kevin's are the best i am told! ( though mine from aspisi in LA ) have been flawless. same deal.

there is virtually NO lag from 16/24's with the right tune and accompanying tweaks, ( as you know ). best of ALL worlds. again, congrats on that build!

Thanks for sharing the build and photos from H2Oi Noah!!! The new work space looks great too.

Looking forward to seeing your updates as the build continues!

As per Kevin's great advice, I picked up a Evoms inlet setup. A little heads up for folks, make sure you clean the modified aluminum pipe as they tend to be filled with metal shavings post modification.


Yuck!


Tossed mine into the ultrasonic and viola! Nice and clean!



Super stoked to drop the motor and get this project rolling with some of the other while you are in there items!

Curious how those pipes fit as most say the plastic ones have to be heavily massage and/or cut to fit.

Cutting them into more pieces makes fitment much more precise.

fitment sucks without cutting them up. pay a premium price for inferior parts

I get them to fit without cutting the tube.
A few tips
1)Must use a heat gun to reshape the ABS plastic. Tighten up the inside radius.
2) You need to remove the rear engine lifting bracket to gain more rearward clearance
3) Remove a body studs (used for Tiptronic>not needed for 6speed) To keep from rubbing the left side intake flange at the new coupling.
4) Use heavier reinforced multi ply silicone tube 2.75" diameter. I use longer length "cuts" 4" vs 3"

Right now yes, open diff, with the motor drop will be putting a diff and converting to GT2 clutch hydraulics.

Does leave room for improvements, they do not seem that interested in improving anything for a nearly 20yo platform so I count it lucky they still sell some of the stuff. At least it is better than anything from 034 which does not fit without cutting/welding/re-machining
