I'm boosted...

Well almost.

About a month ago I could not decide between the HPF stage 1 kit or the Active stage 2 kit, well I ended up with neither.

Scott put up his VF-Engineering stage 2 kit at a great price and I couldn't pass it up. Even though watching the comparison videos made me , I'm sure I'll be satisfied..

Received Scott's kit today and I couldn't be more pleased. Was packaged very nicely and was a stand up guy to work with.

I'll be starting the install on Sunday.

Very nice. Any chance you'll take up Chris' offer for a free dyno/comparison at HPF?

I gotta admire you (and the other guys) who have done their own install.

Didn't get completed today like I had wanted too.

I was getting pissed at the install so I called it a day. Never thought I would want to beat up an intake manifold.

But here's some pictures..

Didn't mount the charge cooler correct the first time so I fixed that and installed the water tank.





And here's where I'm at now..

Still trying to get one of the rubber hoses attached on the intake piping.
