Weeell im back. Picked up another red xr2 for $300 with a blown motor. The paint was really faded but the body is definitely nicer then my other one. Wheeled it out and now its nice and red :)I swapped my complete drivetrain into it and i've got abot 800 miles on it so far and everything seems good.
 
 

Who said 3inch wouldn't fit??    
 

Lots more to come and i'll be back to posting regularly

Wow, nice work! What kind of bypass valve is that?

What are you doing for fuel system & management? Any sort of numbers for what you are running at the moment?

Joe, it looks like you've got some catching up to do, lol!

The BOV is a Tial alpha Q. Its the worlds fastest recirc bov and its amazing! As of right now the fuel system and motor itself is completely stock and Im just running your chipped ECU. With everything the way it is im only running 10psi of boost on the evo8 turbo and the wideband shows good AFR's. No idea on numbers but I am getting it on the local dyno very shortly to get a baseline number.

This may sound like a stupid question but by having the air filter where it is, wouldn't do more harm than good ? Jw

Because thought the air filter had to be where at least some cold air was being sucked in, I had my air filter almost in the same spot on my 91 escort and had lots of people telling me that I was getting more hott air than cold air, maybe I'm wrong

With a turbo car, it is intercooled anyway, so it isn't as critical.

It's considered "Mass Air Intake" which is still a huge improvement over the stock airbox & fender snorkel.

Pulling in warm air can actually help increase gas mileage, as the air is less dense. This can cost a small amount of power though.

As long as you're moving though, the engine bay air temp isn't extreme

Yep! I acually wont be running a mass airflow for much longer and that spot was just the quickest and easiest spot to mount it.
