      • Also needed figure out how to mount the MAP sensor and tube



        Had to modify the lower IC mount to fit the Outlet



        Tacked in new piece and cut out the old one. Needed perfect location for mounting.





        Then made a second piece for strength with a bit different radius.



        Fabbing up ends to fit the outlet

        • Fitting the IC to TB tube.



          Next up was the "Y" for inlet side.



          Fitting that in there and still being able to easily remove the IC was another story.



          How the IC sits.



          Next up was the tubes from Turbo's to IC. This is the Pass side.



          Pass side complete



          New tubes comparison to originals.

                    • Every update amazes me. The amount & quality of the fab work is outstanding.

                      Hauling ass & sucking gas are the best uses for a truck.

                      • Thanks for the comments!

                        The day finally came, I got to drive the truck! Its been a long road.

                        Here are a couple trailers to the first test drive.

                        A big thanks to BANGshift for the props back in January.

                        I am trying to learn how to edit video etc. Pretty clueless at this time but learning. A much better video soon.
