Just getting started on the build guys!

I can say that I was Director for ECS for a few years. I completed packing lists, and packaging setups for all of the ECS kits for those few years and then worked with Alex before I had left ECS. I can say that this is a very well packaged kit, with packing slip (All items checked off), and I was happy to report that everything came in good condition!

Matt, check the threads in the intercooler for any excess material left over from them tapping the holes for the intercooler brackets. I had two out of four that needed a little clean-up.

Have a Dremel or something similar handy. Some of the brackets for various parts are a little tight when trying to put the bolts through them.

The instructions specify which fasteners to use blue Loc-Tite on. I'd suggest a more liberal use of the product and would use it on all main bracket bolts/brace bolts, etc.

Use two people when threading the intake hose from the intercooler to the throttle body. It's a tight fit and requires some shoving and twisting. Plus, it's two pieces with a joiner in the middle. Get that angle set first, as it's difficult to get at the connection after the hoses are in place.

Awesome! Congrats man. I can't wait to see the outcome and hear your impressions.

By the way, are your wheels 21 or 22s? I'm sure that may affect the final numbers a bit, we'll see. Still gonna be amazing.

Also, Matt I'd be curious if you come across any of this extra timing reduction due to false knock when you dyno this car.

Updated with more pics in the original post.. Rodney just putting in the power steering fitting now, we had a new O-Ring here that fit a little more snug on that factory pump so we went ahead and used that instead of the factory one.
