    lol, I wish it was on coils. Sadly, I spend my coilover money on the MSP setup. Currently on sleeves that was included with the car when I bought it but werent installed. The last picture on the first post is the lowest the car was but is now raised up a bit more. Struts couldnt handle it but is now fine.

    Nope. Only things staying plasti-dipped are the rear valence which needs to done again and the rear wing as the paint is really really bad. Nice! I do have some questions as to where the vac lines go and where the water return goes.

    Sounds good, just need to find out where the bpv and wastegate vac lines go and where the line comming of the side of the oil cooler connects to.

    This piece. I tried to visually see where it goes but had no luck.

    well, perhaps ill take my intake mani off this week and have a browse. vac lines can go wherever. the only one that is important is the brake booster line. it is on the bottom of the manifold, the biggest one for sure. but it has a one way valve in it to prevent the brakes from seeing positive pressure. if you didnt get that line in your kit, make sure you install a valve into the brake booster line.

    you can T your wga off one of the larger top side lines, t the bov off a different one. of course you could just use a vac block as well and t off any line you like. just choose a fat one.

    Thanks for the info! A vacuum block is sure to come later on. I should have everything really soon. Found a cold pipe and a condenser. Just need the radiator brackets and Im set!
