That combo will sound very nice. Once you have those on, you will definitely need to get an exhaust video.

I'm sure it's doable. Urd got their sc kit so that's one option. Other is custom front mount. I say do it.

yeah i saw that on URD i love the simple bolt on kits less problems plus warranty always seems the best way i mean more fun power would be great i aint looking for a full built race motor haha no where to go on this island plus I'm pretty sure id bus my tire tryna hang turns since I'm so low

it is definitely in the basket of things I want but prolly won't be a while till id be able to do so
right now I'm just focused on the suspension and lil things here and there

i love my 24-27 MPG hehe these 4 banger with 5 speed can't go wrong

Haha. Man the more so should get one. Good mpg with FI ftw! I always get comments from people asking "why would you turbo your truck? You live on an island."

And My answer is always the same....cause I can. Lol

Thank you Jeremy at Powerfab! Especially Alex with his awesome fab skills. Photos look great but looks even BETTER in person.










You get the idea...

Thanks bro I like it too. I had it set at that height due to where my piping would route to. Where its at now, I have a lot of clearance.


Also did an oil change today. Was gonna install my oil pan spacer but seems like I won't need one. My truck has the deep pan so the spacer is not needed. I will post it for sale 300 shipped. Looking to get what I paid for it.

Today I did a test fitment with the setup I got from power fab to check for any fitment issues and only one came up. Since this is the first to be tested on an auto, I figured I'd share my findings. After connecting the driver side vband to the header and collector I attempted to do the passenger side next. Only issue was that the lines for the auto transmission are preventing the collector pipe line up with the passenger header. Not too big of an issue. Since part of the lines are made up hoses toward the front of the vechicle, that will be my fix for this issue. Plus it makes an opportunity to install a transmission cooler!

Here are some photos....

This I from under the vehicle on the passenger side where the lines are preventing the collector to line up.

And some rotors and pads came in from r1concepts today. Brakes were going bad and rotors had some scoring so I ordered these for now. Never had an issue with r1concepts before so that's my reason for ordering from them. Will
Be purchasing a BBK in the future.
