Smileys has some filters for 45$ What I'm using with my a1000

V-bands installed on the headers, crossover pipe roughed in, oil drain fitted. I still need to mount the wastegate and plumb the intercooler hoses. I also notched the DS shock tower to fit the header and started welding up holes in the bay. I'm still trying to decide what direction I want to go with for underhood color schemes.

Made some minor progress, started laying out injector harness and fuel lines, radiator hoses, turbo oil drain and other misc items.




Might hide the coil back here, I'll need to fab up an aluminum bracket to support it.

Lol, I started the turbo build back in 2008/09, when I lived in Georgia, but put it all back to NA when I sold my SVT Contour. Even had everything to do an AOD swap too. The mini tubs opened up a can of worms and I figured since I had it apart, I might as well do it how I've always wanted it.
