it #@$%ing HAULS ASS!!!!!

I'm still having some issues with surging and that sort of thing so I didn't hammer the hell out of it, but I hit a nice 19psi in second gear coming out of the apartment it just felt CLEAN, thats the best way to put it... like there was nothing standing between me and where I was going... except that intersection down the street...

NahumCC I don't see any problem with the little bit of space left in the cutout of the viggen bumper. Leaves plenty of space for a custom oil cooler since the stock one is crappy and isn't in the best place for air flow.

oh you're absolutely right, the MP unit was plenty big enough... my biggest gripe with it was that it didn't actually fit in the bumper cutout, half of it was crammed up and behind the bumper!!! So I was looking at it one day and thinking WTF good is it even doing if it's not in the cutout... In the end I sold the MP unit used for $270 or so and spent $170 on this unit... so it worked itself out. And unless I get a turbo off one of those giant diesel dump trucks or something, I'll never have to upgrade anything intake related again

Thanks Its been a process... first had an MP perf intercooler, then did custom 2.5" piping, delivery and intake pipe upgrades, and finally now this to finish it off... Took about an hour to take off the MP unit and slap this one on there, still have some adjusting to do before its finalized, maybe another hour or two this afternoon, then the bottom protector bar thing will come later
