sorry i have been busy as hell helping others with their projects. i finally got some time to work on my TSX so i got some more pictures.

i had to relocate my fuel line to make room for my manifold and turbo so i rerouted it along the firewall and frame on top of the tranny.



installed a 255 walboro. had to modify the container for the walboro to fit.



trim a little here and there.


heres where i rewired my fuse box to make more room in my engine bay. the fuse box will be mounted along the fender. oh and finding 8ga wire was a pain.




tapping the oil pan. taking the oil pan off the motor while the motor still in the car was a pain but its possible.

oil return fitting welded and oil pan installed.

i will also be moving my coolant lines around my turbo and manifold so a little more custom work.


took the coolant fitting out so i can weld a aluminum 10AN fitting.


waiting for my steel 12AN fitting to weld on the metal coolant line then i can finally mount my manifold and turbo.
heres some other work i was doing while waiting.
oil feed line installed.

i will be cutting the radiator support to route my intercooler piping.

pictures of my tight fitted downpipe. it looks a lot tighter fit then it is.



my custom dump pipe. i went a little crazy on it but im still waiting for parts so gotta keep busy.

i also wrapped my manifold.


had my valve cover powder coated cart black.

intercooler mock up.


stay tuned cause there will be more coming soon. thats if i can get my parts in.

1 1/2 inch stainless steel schedule 10 piping. i ordered some of my stuff from http://www.verociousmotorsports.com/ they have a lot of fab parts. its a big headache but well worth it in the end. just be patient and make sure you plan which runner to start with first. if you dont know what to order then try http://tdautowerkes.com/fabrication.htm they can sell you just the parts and you can weld it yourself. i bought my merge collector from http://www.034motorsport.com/fabrica...r-p-18088.html cause it was a good price. if you have any questions just PM me and ill try to help as much as i can.

There is a guy who bought a peakboost or full-race kit for a rsx with just a modified downpipe it worked and he is hitting mid 12's. Oh and he use to have a supercharger but I guess that wasn't good enough. There's nothing like a turbo.
