Yup,

Corey just sent me a note that he was making some minor alterations to the tubing on the kit... Rather than a 2.5 inch down tube, it will be three inches through out...This is only a short piece of tubing... bout this long
I<--------------------------------------------------------------------->I or therabouts...

He is a stickler for details...

I may not sleep tonight waiting for pics...

This picture shows the clutch bleeder line behind the electrical wire. The thick black stuff is heat shielding... Ordinarily this is a capped line that to bleed the clutch mandates jacking the car up, getting under it and hooking into this line. Corey and Co run this line to a spot under the hood. bleeding the clutch takes just a few minutes now, and no need to get dirty or under the car or anything... He is also taking the time to heat wrap cableing and other items in the area of the turbo's. Details....

Being stuck in Brazil, and not able to really ask questions, I'm not sure where these two lines t'ed come from or go to... Maybe Corey will chime in or J.R.

Note the thickness of the heat wrap... I'll have to get someone else to speak up about the braided line coming up on the left, though I think that is the clutch bleeder line...

Note the plastic wire loom in the first photo... and then the same loom in the second pic... You might also notice in the first pic, the really nice looking attachment to the exhaust manifold...
Yeehhhhhhhhh!!! Baby Got Boost...
