dropped the car off at Motive Performance today to get the intercooler piping fitted, they will aLSO fit my oil cooler and find a suitable length belt to run the charger off.

and in about 6hrs im off to Hong Kong, when im back Power FC and injectors go in, then the tune and im done.

well except for a clutch, but i can do that any time, man thing i should be up and running real soon :chuckles:

Its upto the shop, there is next to no space in the engine bay for the piping so he suggested it point up so thats how i put it on, but it takes about 5mins to rotate it any way thats needed.

I thought it would be easier to point downwards but hey wutever it takes to make this bad boy fit.

sure will tiang, i should have taken pics when i had the alternator out and the 2 bolted together.

as for belt routing, it follows the stock way but the belt goes over the supercharger after the alternator before going down to the air con.
