    I'm using the FTC piggyback that URD sells. I bought it and the Supra injectors just to run with the supercharger but we know how that went :D

    Been slacking on this lately. Its been a busy past few weeks.

    First off, i had 2 events in Moab to attend in 2 weeks so i had to get some stuff finished up on the Lobster.

    The top priority was it needed a front bumper since i decided to sell the ODL

    So i bought some plate and tube and threw one together in 2 days

    Made it to Moab to wheel with a bunch of Nissans

    [​IMG]

    I added some camouflage to help the Lobster blend in

    After GoneMoab, It was back to Colorado for a few days to prep for Rock Therapy.

    The main thing i wanted to work on was to lower the under hood temps. I never had a issue while wheeling but cooler is better.

    I've had a sport hood sitting in my garage for awhile and decided that would help with lowering temps since i was going to leave the scoop open. I was also thinking of blacking out my stock hood to reduce glare from the sun and my roof mounted light bar. Since the sport hood needed paint, i just did that in Satin black and added a little extra paint work

    Headed back out to Moab with Kevin from Toytec

    [​IMG]

    Went and wheeled Dome Plateau with the group

    [​IMG]

    Saw a U4 buggy driving down Main st. I love Moab

    [​IMG]

    Took another group photo

    Just a bump for sub :eek:

    So much awesome. Did that hood help with temps? I remember in moab last year you popped the hood on dome plat but can't remember if it was because it was hot or just too look at your snail :p

    Dude been awesome seeing your build. Talk about crazy stuff :). Had a question about your turbo set up. Did you upgrade any engine internals? Starting my turbo build :D and needing some senior wisdom

    How much bost and if it's not secret what's your air fuel mixture?
    Was planning on a supercharger for ever but doesn't seem to give as much as a turbo and it pulls off the crank.
    Excited to get started!
    I'm trying to go more ecoboost so smaller turbo faster boost and found the new barring GT35 T3 will Spool up way faster then the standered and can push as much as 400Hp.
    Any thoughts?
