car looks great man, I like those wheels on the b3, gives it the meat it should have had from the start. How are you likeing the hy35? I really loved the power delivery from it on my car.

Very nice work on the 5 lug swap! Now I don't have to search to find the info!

As for the intercooler, it looks to be the same one most of us cram behind the US spec bumper. 27"x7"x2.5". To get it to fit with the fog lights, I welded on a pair of shortened cast tight 90°s.

The hy is awsome. It sounds unreal especially running it without a bov or bpv. There is more lag compared to the k24 but It's overall more fun to drive.

The only downside to this 5 lug set up is having to redrill rotors every time you get new ones. Also when I do get larger calipers in the future I can't just use the rs2 brackets I'll have to get custom ones made. But for the price you can't beat it, I think I paid more for tires than all the parts for the swap.

what kind of boost are you running? I suggest you work it up towards 30psi ASAP :D

I still have distributor ignition, stock bottom end, and no way to tune the ignition map on vems safely at the moment. I'm only doing 15psi right now out of fear of messing anything up.

Nice and clean! but is that brace strong enough to support the way of the turbo without much flexing or what is that holding?

There is a third arm that's welded to the underside of the triangular plate. It bolts to the aluminum engine mount arm. Very solid.
