Ok, so we found a set of cups, and will have them Thursday morning.... So,

I mounted the nitrous bottle bracket, and we are about to run the hoses for the nitrous... I also mounted the boost controller solenoids... Now we will run the hoses down to the waste gates and be done with that part... Then it's on to tuning and dialing in...
Pics this evening...

As promised, here are a few pics of the progress made today.

First is a teaser of the view in the enclosed back portion of the car... I'm not sure it qualifies as a trunk anymore... There will not be much if anything else carried in there....

Joe Racer778 loaned me his Nitrous bottle until I can get my second one...

Under the carpet is an aluminum plate the nitrous bottle frame is bolted to... There are still a few adjustments to be made, but it certainly works for now. In one of the pics, Joe managed to get his hand involved...
