I've come across a lot of people who often can't decide which type of set up they should run, manifold they should use, turbo, what bov, etc etc. So why not have a thread of people's engine bays to show the multiple way's a turbo set up can be set up :). I hope this thread helps the many visual learners out there. :)

Looks like shit here, but it'll be cleaned up in the next week or so.

I just dont see how the intake tube doesnt get hella hot running over the exhaust like that.

It does get hella hot. Hence the heat wrap. I need to wrap another layer around it.

Run it up thru the hood then back down at the mani to avoid the exhaust. Do it.

Why not move your battery to the trunk? You will get more space and I think it will look even cleaner than it already does.

HKS BOV's seem to be very popular. Where are all greddy bov's?

Personally I like the SSQV's myself. I just bought a R2D2 cuz it was in my price range.

I used to be a greddy BOV whore... I always liked the way they sounded. However the design of the HKS BOV seals better and has faster response. Thus they are more popular.

That's not an evolution its a Renaissance. By far one of the cleaner engine bay's I've seen next to captain's.

Did a little work and cleaning today. Made a plastic panel to cover some wiring and vacuum hoses on the driver's side of the bay.

You may want to reconsider the routing of that turbo coolant line, putting hot coolant after the radiator isn't the greatest idea.
