There was a post about reconfiguring the intake to the passenger side, but I don't think anyone really followed up on it. Looking at how tight things are on that side i really don't see how it could be done, but I'm sure with enogh time someone might be able to figure it out.

Saw the update on the other site.. Congrats. Looks like you should be good to go. Just make sure all your Procede settings are correct so you make the proper boost.

Nothing fishy. There was an issue - as a courtesy to the customer he's putting stock turbos on so he can drive the car. they're waiting on an updated part. In the mean time tony's going to dyno the car with stock turbos to get a baseline.

The car was never finished putting it back. We decided its a better idea to put the stockers in and get a baseline dyno while waiting for the wheels then put the stage 1's on and dyno it again.
