    I like that 2nd routing, that looks badass :nice: Got to be smoother than the original setup too.

    edit: is that dryer vent tubing for mock-up?

    ya just for mock up. #1 probably is the smoothest, but #2 brings it away from the headers

    axe'd the fluid resevoir.

    do you think i'd get enough pressure if i mounted it in the trunk for the 1 time/yr i'd use it for inspection?

    Chris, you can remount it in the fender after your get your pipes done, if your inspection place checks it all it has to do it work, it doesn't have to be easy ti fill...lol I actually mount the radiator overflow in the trunk area all the time, this will prevent any fluid hitting the rear tires if it ever spits up, this is a must for a race car.

    If you ditched that you can make the bends nice and smooth up to the intake, if you wanted you could actually bring it out through the panel that would be behind the stock battery location.

    Look at the pic I posted of the ATI on the SN series car, the pipe leaving the blower swoops down, goes near the frame rail and then goes into the intercooler via a 90 degree rubber elbow. that same design will work for you but instead of curving to the blower you'll attach it to the intake.

    pretty sick, you should rotate the case of the paxton like that guy thats a pretty trick looking setup, nice smooth path for the air to go.


    And as far as inspections go... what inspections, i believe my car has a sticker thats good until june of 2004. no tickets yet
