Went for a nice cruise today and pulled over to enjoy some of the beautiful scenery

i figured it was about time for another update.....
My engine bay now looks like this

basically everything that was touched or fabricated by BOLD performance had to be done over due to faulty welds, awful engineered designs, and lazy contruction that failed in under 1,000 miles of actual driving. Thanks again chief. i also cleaned up a few things and added a heat shield as well...
With these issues finally resolved for good , the car has been running great again.

I did a brake upgrade and installed goodrich ss lines, as well as ebc red pads and rotors





and i added kirkosaurus mounts. no noticable increase in vibration and really helped with the excessive movement I was experiencing due to my worn mounts and increased power. For $55 they are amazing





I also scored an EMS powered stb. Hated the company but always loved this product.

And possibly most important, I got my air conditioning working again. It had been over a year since it last
blew cold air and after a new compressor, condensor, and other bits its good as new.

Haven't posted an update in a while...i purchased and installed a kaminari spoiler and finally filled the hole from the 93 spoiler. Also had the paint touched up in a few spots...


I sent my front wheels out to wheel flip and made my 17x7 s into 17x9+22 and they are now on the rear of the car with the 17x8s now upfront.










Cleaned the interior up some





car started pushing oil so I dug deep, and bought a built bottom end from a.t.s

Guess too much boost for this guy







All back together and running great again

Also figured I would also share my cheap d.i.y intercooler sprayer, I put together to combat high iat during summer months in Florida while still on a side mount. I used a windshield washer reservoir and pump, a fan misting ring, and a spare jdm fog light switch I had lying around total cost was ~ $50. Seems to work well. Covers the i/c evenly with a fine mist.
I mounted the reservoir in the trunk

Intercooler sprayer is borderline genius.

Thanks Aaron. I Found it on EBay...http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...734265&alt=web

Currently I run a 50/50 mix of water and rubbing alcohol. I'm pretty pleased with the nozzles coverage of the ic, as well as the fine spray pattern that doesnt run thru water too quickly, that were provided with the kit, but I'm experimenting with some other nozzles

Awesome idea regarding the sprayer..For those that want to save even more money couldn't you just use the existing windshield washer reservoir and just route new hose and misting ring. Originally I was going to use for direct meth injection, but I think I like this route better for my needs.

^Yes that will work.
I used a complete windshield washer circuit (tiny pump in reservoir, tubing, adjustable timer for intermittent squirting, and 3 misters from ordinary mister bottles) back in the late 90's on the oem top-mount IC, when my personal setup was still a 4agze. I used the timer for the squirting instead of the actual wiper activation.

I like the ring/setup mrstu.

For those with a HE up front on A2W setups, it can work to just have a manual Y-valve up front off your existing ww setup, to divert ww fluid to a HE sprayer. Can even have it set to come on above xx psi etc. Or, have an electronic Y-valve that will divert it automatically along with the ww pump activation.
But it only needs a quick squirt like every 20 seconds or so on-boost or during recovery.

This way, you are carrying no extra weight, beyond what you carry in your ww reservoir anyway.

Just be aware, although it is unlikely, a 50/50 ww (winter) mix is actually classified as flammable, although we squirt it all over our windshields constantly... keeping from spraying onto electrical or any ignition sources is always a good idea, or use a lower % mix (although the higher the meth, the faster the cooling/evap).

could you tap into one of the wiper lines???


so basically use your wiper washer button to activate it??

no need for a pump or switch/button setup?



i like the idea for those running sidemounts.

good for queuing up for the 1/4 too.

Tried exactly that prior to my current setup jim. Didn't mind just pulling the fuse that activated the wipers at the times I was spraying and using rain x, since I never even drive the car when there's a chance of rain, but the fuse was connected to something else that I needed. I already forgot what that was but I'm sure some one smarter than me knows

Iirc, My ait sensor is located in my intake so its difficult to measure actual temp difference this makes but the I/c is cool to the touch even after several pulls when I'm spraying

Looking good! I didn't see that you recently upgraded your bottom end!
