I think I see all of the holes you drilled in that last pic lol, hopefully that will do the trick nicely!  Did you just take a dremmel and trim out the pieces of the bumper cover?  With a little bit or trim around them, like that vac hose, it should come out great.  Do you need a front license plate in your state though?  If so it looks like your going to have to mount it off to one side so it doesn't block your airflow. 

I've been following your thread the whole time, so I'm looking forward to hearing how she does next week!

Now you at least have an excuse, "but officer, the plate blocks my intercooler!" LOL

Coater took longer than expected.

Final mock-up on engine stand.
If weather holds, I'll get it back in this weekend.

Still trying to get the 10,000 small details wrapped up.

Got the Coldside welded and started polishing it up and
loosely mocked up the BOV just above the coil packs.




Turbo blankets came and look kickass. $110 ebay special.




Also picked up $30 GM boost control solenoid today.
Opens all kinds of cool boost control options thru the AEM.

For sure will have a flip switch on the dash that will instantly take me
from 8-10psi at 600rwhp to 15-16psi and 725+rwhp. Very cool.

Few more details done worth showing.

Got the new intercooler bumper holes edged out with vac hose.
Almost looks factory.





"High/Low" boost switch installed with indicator light.
When switched into "High" mode the little red light in upper right corner will come on too.

That's a neat little feature there barn, I like the red light LOL.  Imports are going to learn to dread that little red light

Airfliters got here today.



Got two 45* 4" PCV elbows from HomeDepot - $2.50 each.

They slide right over a 4" T4 inlet
Going to put small bead of RTV on back edge of elbow and let it cure into a little seal.
Then use couple of small set screws thru the side to hold it in place.

4.5" inlet airfilters slide right on to the PCV elbow.

This gives me dual 9" X 4.5" opening airfliters that are kicked down into
the qrt panels.

No dinky 3.5" cone filters sucking hot engine bay air for me

Yes, PCV will get painted flat black.
about 95% of the elbow is inside the front qrt panel anyway.

Elbow will be on the cold side of the turbo. Which gets warm for sure
but nothing like the exhaust side's glowing red hot.

If people can stick rubber air filters on them, then the PCV should hold up fine too.
