Besides work 8hrs, i also helped install my bro's front mount setup. And it was ALOT of work, i started helping about 630pm, we didnt get done till 11Pm, When i started to help, he was about 1/4 way started. My predictions for my mx6 will be atleast 10-16hrs.. since ill be doing alot of cutting.
This intercooler setup cost $300, 200 worth of pipes, couplers and clamps, and 100 IC, we have ALOT of spare pipes,couplers and clamps, but o well, more for me! The change from the stock IC to this front mount setup with 2.5 pipes is amazing!

This gives you a bit of an idea on the scale of our shop :D this is only one stall, there are 7 stalls total in our shop, also 1 7ton roll over crane (we could litterally pick up the car 15ft and glide to the other end of the shop)
The pit your looking at is big enough to get 3 cars on at once.. (30ft)








Notice the shaved VC :)










Anyone Questioning my sources and ability for fabrication or my turbo setup, Question no more.;)

That turbo manifold is insane. Must be nice to have a shop that big to do your work in. But then again I've got my 2 bay garage8D

Nice shop! :tup:

He should really have taken the manifold off to paint it though. But, like everyone else I'm going to have to say the car looks good (other than the headlights) ...and I'm not a big fan of eclipses! Good job!

i dint make the manifold, its a pacesetter.
We did paint it many times while it was off, Although that paint burned off (and it was high temp header paint). So he got some other type of header paint that was really thick and went over it again.

im also not a fan of the headlights.. they were on it when he got it.. there apc and kinda crappy, theres plans for new ones.

Also the motor, its got low miles on it, although he plans to build a new motor using the 1g block, 2g head and other parts, And use forged internals. Hes got the money to do it no doubt.

I think it looks pretty good, but I also think there is too much white under the hood, and what is up with the passenger side fender where it meets the hood?

Nice work and nice shop. Makes my 32x46 shop look small, lol.
