Was it hard to come up with this:
It wasn't all that bad working with the piping but it became quite frustrating at times. I am sure everyone knows just how tight that mx6 engine bay is.
What is your knowledge about cars:
I have been working on probes and mx6's for a couple years now and know the whole car pretty well... I have done everything from tranny swaps to engine swaps and rebuilds.
How long did it take to build your system
: It took about 2 weeks to design, weld, fabricate and install the system. Definitely a lot more time researching and gathering parts.
How much money have you spent on this all:
Most likely somewhere around 2000-2500 with all the labor being performed by myself.
What is your advice for people who wants to get boosted:
Read, research and take your time.
