Images are small on photobucket but you get the idea.

Megan Racing 24x12x3" Intercooler









2.5" aluminized steel mandrel bent hard pipes


had to take a chunk out of the strut bar bracket

cut, turn, weld........dont know why this image wasn't resized

Bosch 110 BOV


The car




the info

custom one-off Rob Staines (1984-2006 R.I.P. buddy) shift knob

also bigger image, wish they were all like this

and a quick shot of the 3" side-exit exhaust with resonator


Big difference going from no intercooler to huge ass intercooler.

Let me know if any of you want any of these in full size.

bov works great, couldnt be happier, especially for the money

only other mod was backing out the afm screw and shimming the WG to about 12 psi and 3" DP/elbow which I already had

have yet to take it to the quarter, but shouldnt be long

Well, I've been slamming into fuel cut so I'm looking into a Maft Pro and going speed/density to kill alot of birds with one stone.

I would avoid the MAFT-PRO. I ran it and HATED it. I recommend either the SAFC, or the MAP-ECU

I've heard a bit of negative feedback for the maft-pro. Whats the main problem with it?

I couldn't tune it worth crap. A/F's are over the place, and it would change. One minute it would be lean, the other minute it would be rich.

So today I picked up an FCD just to tide me over until I figure out which piggyback to go with.

id love to see a comparison test on both the map ecu and the apexi safc
from what i understand the map ecu gives you more functions with the bonus of not having to run a maf.what do you use rob?

MAP-ECU where I can. It also has functions to control nitrous/meth/water injection, or a boost cut in case something goes wrong.

I do have an SAFC and I might use it on my beat up old 83 22R-TE pickup(work truck)

I really like the MAP more though.
