Looks good. Do you have any dyno sheets or anything?

AEM Meth/Water Install:

I decided to run the pump and the tank in the trunk. I pride my engine bay too much to be cluttering it up with another tank and a bunch of wires.




Kit didn't come with a bung so I hit up the local hardware joint and welded a nut.


Powder to cover up my gorilla welding.


Nice and clean...


I ran the smallest jet included with the AEM kit. Wired the fail output wire to my XEDE to switch maps when I get around to tuning for it. I expect to run some pretty aggressive timing and about 13 LBS.

The dyno sheet I have is not on 12.5 LBS. It's a bit lower and the car was not as equipped as it is now. Put down 255, if I recall it was around 10PSI? Unsure though.

Lightweight Battery installation:

Old mount was obviously too large. I didn't want to rice it up with some rigged up stuff though.


So I chopped the grip off and re-welded it to fit the new battery.


A little black paint, some new terminals and shrink wrap, and we're in business. Just can't leave my radio on as long when the car is off.

Radiator and fan installation:

We had a heat wave come through and the car started to overheat under some moderate beating-the------out-of-her driving. I didn't see any reason to dump 5 hundo on brand name aluminum when I was just looking for a little upgrade, so I ordered this guy off of eBay. Nice product, direct fit, and it absolutely did the trick. Threw some Mishimoto silicone on it. Product Link

Good looking radiator if you ask me. It's got a simple job. Good welds, factory mounting points.


Slid in with minimal fuss, looks good to me.


The slim fans made up for the additional size of the radiator. Mishimoto silicone was designed for the stock coolant route.. so that took some manipulating. Nothing to fuss about though.
