Bet it would sound a heap better by ear than it does on a cam that does not pick up the true sound.

Bet your pumped for a spin Alan?
Nice work

intake side of things done. wouldn't mind getting the missing piece of cooler piping replaced instead of using silicone hose

Can I really really strongly suggest you get the Ceramic coating on the turbo manifold, the rear housing of turbo, the wastegate dump and the turbo dump pipe. I have had the same set up as this and it made a very big difference. Also a MACE manifold insulator makes a big difference if the car will be a daily. ie, traffic, heatsoak etc. Cheers.

Also running a CAI pip in 3.5 inches from the front bumper to the bottom of the airbox makes a great improvement. I also found small gains making the BOV as close to the Throttle body as possible. All these gains were verified on a dyno as I am very analytical. Cheers!!
