Well the intercooler pipes didn't work out like I wanted em to I needed some tighter 90's and didn't buy em that will be a project for the winter... just waiting on a 90 to fit the T/B and MAF tube that will be in tomorrow so I'm hoping to finish the trans today and she will be ready to go.. got the hp tuning software yesterday it's all in the computer ready to go..

How do you feel about keeping the factory hard lines and just running 3/8 npt to 6an fittings and steel braided lines to the cooler? It would get rid of the oem hoses but save me some $ not replacing the whole line. The reason I ask is if still be using the oem clips and figured you would know..

Ok so you just used a tubing cutter and took the end of the line off? That's not gonna cost much more just 2 fittings and no worries that sounds like a good idea thanks again for the heads up

Looks great mx, I added the braided lines and AN fittings too and it makes it look a TON better. What kind of fitting did you use to plug into the top of the manifold? Wasnt sure to use for that. thanks

I cut the tabs off when I did mine and used an O-ring to make sure it seals and some special pipe dope from work. Just don't over tighten it...

As far as my build I sent Will my Stock file in HpTuners and just waiting on the new program it won't idle and if it does it starts to rev real high so as soon as I get it flashed I should be able to get a vid put up of how it runs... I did order an advanced racing 165' Theramast for the trans cooler it should be here Monday.
