Congrats on the new HP. Can't wait to hear more about your install, be sure to keep us updated with plenty of photos and notes. Never know this could be the DIY thread?

Make sure the drain line is secured well away from the air conditioner lines directly below the head unit. I run mine on the driver's side of the frame rail. Ask me how the braided steel on the drain line slices through the aluminum a/c lines...

Have a helper when you get to shoving those silicone hoses into place. Makes it much easier.

You didn't paint the head unit Techno Pink? Come on, make it stand out.

Looking good so far.

not, he should have it painted Yellow, along with the intake, but for him pink would have worked.

High flow cats + superchargers = not great results, based on this particular platform. Best to eliminate them entirely or stay stock.

Lets see a pic of the orientation of the valve, that one needs to be correct and it fits both ways. Looking great.

Reminds me- gotta get my sock on! Just about got caught in a gulley washer on the way home last night...

It's all looking good Nasty! And that Vortech drain line looks well protected .
