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.

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.

I'm in. All the custom fab work is impressive. You will truly have a one-of-a-kind car when it's done.
