hey whats up man. i recently did a relocation to the trunk of my car. I used an optima battery with a custom tray from ebay. then i used standard battery gauge wire and i ran it to the front. I used a fusible link from an evo x. you can get this from MAP for around 50 bucks. i can post some pics later if youd like

Check one off the list i installed a redtop a month ago. I don't think you can get a better battery.

I have big fog lights without the bezel. I ordered both sides and want to put a good after market lamp in that fit well with the bezel opening. Anyone have suggestions?

I finally found a pipe kit with an extended throttle body elbow and 2.75 inch id to match my bored throttle body and ported manifold (also 2.75" id) not sure why i waited so long. Figure it will flow alot better maybe have some small gains, considering the factory elbow is 2.125" id. I think im getting kind of a bottle neck effect at the elbow.

I was doing a boost leak test and found a little leak at the TB, I pulled it apart and realized i never increased the ID of the tb elbow it still sets at stock on the factory braided hose. I got a bov mount tube in 2.75id with the matching extended matching elbow.
Anyone have any thoughts how much restriction there was being bottle necked like that?

Hey what’s up man. Got some pics for you. Here’s the bracket that I have in the trunk. I currently have it mounted in the spare but it might be moved to the right side of the trunk. Maybe LOLll I’d like to build a new floor so that way i have all trunk space available.

So the ground is just bolted to a good ground with paint removed. The positive is ran to the front where I have it on the Evo x fusible link. From there i connected all the wires such as the harness and starter. I made a bracket and put it in front of my catch can

All the parts for the fusible link are available on maperformance. I think it’s a total of three things.

Installed a drain line to my vented catch can which has an open/close valve on the bottom. I ran the line to the depth of the radiator so i can drain it without a mess and
I can drain it during an oil change. Anyone else do something like this?
