+2 LOL

and some pretty christmas lights to go with him being in the rear view mirror HA HA, guys that do the 1.9 turbo more power to them! I wouldn't attempt it, course turbo aint my thing I like a good N/A engine that's why I just run a good intake and header on my EGT :D nice deep growl! cut intake box with a K&N filter does good :D

I'm going to just relocate the battery, and connect the VAM straight to the throttle body!!! can't be more direct than that now can you? with the battery in the trunk the cut box and filter should all fit right there under the hood nicely, you think 4 gauge wire will work to have the battery in the back? the starter prolly takes more than 100 amps I'm sure it's more like 300 amps or so. I'll just go to home depot and get some 0 gauge wire! that stuff will work. then I just gotta lengthen the VAM wires MAYBE, maybe I can just move em and get em to fit, but yeah that'll be an intake eh? when I do I get a write up and pics on how to do it!

newp! gonna just mount the VAM to the TB straight with the black box on there still so the IAC will work, stupid black box! I might fab up a short hose so I can put a T in it for the IAC, but yeah just gonna get rid of that stupid intake hose not looking for a TRUE cold air, just eliminating unnecessary stuff! plus battery in the back is better weight distribution :p naw that's what subs are for ;)
