Look closely, it's not a "style bar". It's a camera mount.

Oh snaps, Got done cleaning my valves today. I also bought an airconditioner for my garage since the power bill is included in my 75 dollar garage rent, so even though it isn't for my car, it is the closest it will probably ever be to having AC. God bless wasting other peoples power.

Decided to clock my turbo today, because that is what kool kids do when they have a free afternoon. I wanted to clock it 180 degrees, but realized that I am dumb and did not have snap ring pliers. Since it was after 4 in the afternoon all the stores were closed.

So I used a broom handle I've heard about this before, but never tried it. Unfortunately, I can't turn the housing completely with that method. So I just goofed around with the pipes and filter a bit.




Pretty much a horribly way of killing an hour. Tomorrow I will finish what I started and have it setup the way I want with the outlet pointing down and using my current 2-1/2" intercooler pipes, just with foot or so of pipe removed.

Should be a good time.

Replaced my "ebay special" steering wheel with the factory one. Also powdercoated my alternator mounting brackets/adjusting arms.
