    Thank you!

    Haven't got it back yet, but I do have the info of what's going in now.

    Circle D Pro Stage 3 Torque converter - 245mm 2C
    Exedy Stage 2 Clutches
    Billet Intermediate shaft

    Afterwards I'll be doing MAK deletes also, then finally the wastegate.

    Got my MAK delete pipes and Vibrant resonators today.

    Mocked it up showing where the resonators will go on the pipes. Will be keeping my existing exhaust from that point on. Hoping to quiet down the catless sound and rasp but keep my stainlessworks sound. We shall see.

    Will be getting these put on shortly after I get my car back with the trans work done. Wastegate probably first though.

    Thanks!

    Hoping to get my car back from the trans work this week. Wastegate appointment set up for 7/31 and cat deletes should be shortly after that.

    Alky Control meth injection system is next on the list afterwards, and eventually my sound system mixed in there somewhere.

    Prepping for wastegate install today...

    Removed my intercooler, hot pipe, and supercharger. Bringing the parts to get modified on Monday and reinstalling on Tuesday. Can't wait, already got the tune modified from Lund in anticipation for the wastegate but will still send a few logs over afterwards.

    Also removed my blinker switchback that fell out inside the housing last week. Good thing I was already taking the bumper off and got it out, I think I'll put a tiny dab of super glue on the side of the bulb this time.

    Wastegate and BOV are in! MAK Inlet also in!

    Turbosmart Compgate 40 @ 12psi
    Turbosmart Race Port 50mm BOV
    3.85 Procharger Pulley
    MAK Inlet Pipe

    Mounted the BOV on the hot pipe in place of the standard BPV. Mounted the WG on the intercooler end tank, and a boost reference port for the WG on the hot pipe. I chose this system because it seemed alot cleaner to me than trying to cram everything onto the hot pipe. No offense to those who went that route, I just preferred this setup.

    [MENTION=28216]PSI Proformance[/MENTION] hooked me up with some awesome fab work, their welds look just as good as Procharger's. Highly recommend them and they are the ones who came up with the intercooler mounting idea which you can read about here. Lund advised me not to move the MAF as in their traditional setup so they were more than happy to work with me and set things up the way I wanted.

    TONS of pictures below. The custom pipe, all the pieces, the welding, intake, etc. Also pictured I put a strip of the rubber adhesive that Procharger supplies on the condenser end tank as the wastegate was very close to it and didn't want it hitting.

    Finally uploaded some videos of my BOV & Wastegate. Videos don't do it justice though, it sounds like a cross between a jet and a industrial fan blower lol.

    Installed my XLume GT badge
    Installed vibration dampener into the whole trunk area (for upcoming sound system)
    Installed my Redline hood struts...AFTER being almost done with all the aftermarket engine work lol.
    Deleted the prop rod (+40hp)
    Installed my rear speakers (but not hooked up yet, Hertz Millie Pro Coaxial)
    Installed anti-theft hidden GPS tracker (not hooked up yet).

    Vibration damper used was Sound Deadener Showdown CLD Tiles. The tiles have been tested and shown better performance over the traditional systems, pretty impressive.

    I recognize that tube out of the procharger. Where you at the Evolution event last month back up in a corner? :)

    Sounds mean AF mate.

    How do those cat deletes and vibrant resonators sound compared to the old setup? I plan to kill some drone with from the magnaflow comp catback by going this route and could even do with quietening it down a touch in the expectation that the cat deletes will make it louder.

    I swear all the items on my to do list are exactly the same as yours. You're just a few steps ahead of me :D

    [MENTION=22703]Andrewg[/MENTION] Thanks man :cheers:

    Tomorrow is my appointment to get the exhaust work done actually, so I will report back here with video. My current catback is pretty loud so I expect this to be extremely loud. I'm hoping the resonators help but I'm not too sure. I may try welding in some 6" bullet resonators down on the curved pipe, or I may have to go back to the stock mufflers if its unbearably loud. We shall see.

    Also having some issues with seeing too much boost. Hoping the cat deletes will help solve that issue, may also need to lower the wastegate spring. For now I'm shifting at 6-6.5k @12-13psi. Past that it keeps rising.

    In other news also started the very early process of building my subwoofer enclosure. Will take some pics as progress moves along with that.

    Purchased my Alky Control methanol injection system! Will be here tomorrow. Now I am waiting on the tank to be built. Having it fabricated up but haven't gotten an ETA yet.

    Scheduled a clay bar, detail, and wax on Friday. First one! They said it takes 3-4 hours so it sounds like they do a complete job. Also may have them condition the leather seats and put some touchup paint on a few blemishes on the front from rock chips. Will post some pics after it's done.

    Place I went to last week for my cat deletes/resonators wasn't able to do it. Made a new appointment for Sept 1st with a shop that has done it before, so hopefully no problems this time.

    Lots of exciting stuff coming soon! Tuning to 20* timing (from 18*) once the meth is in. That plus all the other additions I have made I'll be hitting the dyno again hoping for some big numbers! Goal is 700+whp, 750 would be awesome :D

    Here are my drawings for the meth tank that I made up to fit in the spare tire well. The tank still leaves enough room in front of it for the pump, etc. And has a fill pipe coming up to fill it, as my sound system box will be covering it once it's installed. Designed baffle walls inside to keep fluid from sloshing away from the pickup point.

    Similiar looking to this:
