Awesome man! It really makes me want to clock my CT26 and redo my piping AGAIN. I like the piping too, is that stainless? Which transmission did you use?

Polished aluminum. We used the S54.

great job tweak. only thing i would change is the cool pipe to go straight down and to the left ...but thats just me being picky. how you like the car so far, did you get on it at all?

Dang man, you make me want to do a 3s swap in my car ;) Good job on everything. I still may need to talk to you about a 4age 20v head swap this winter.

Ah yeah I see what you're saying. The kit that the owner bought for the piping had only 90* bends so I was limited in what I could do, but I like how you have your cool pipe set up... I'll remember that one.

I didn't really get on it, breaking in a new clutch :)

Yes it was complete. You should be able to, we started with and ST (7AFE) so we needed all of that.
