NICE!!!! but then I'm biased towards white - and I happen to be working on a grille mod very similar to yours ;-)

that STI throttle body connecting hose is a nice touch - where did you find that?

another question - have you modified your scoop undertray/ducting to suit the intercooler?

Cheers
Nipped the shroud and bent it back and out a bit, covers probably %95 of the I/C.


Works good enough for me. :grin:

Nice work hondaslayer - looks fantastic.

Nice job!

I'm waiting to install mine. How much time did it take you? Did you do anything to your TGV like a...delete?

What's the link to your thread on NASIOC? Thanks.

Between that and the turbo it took me about 3 - 3.5 hrs.

Thanks for the link. Your car looks great. I surely miss my old '04 AW F-XT.

I noticed you indicating that you ported your TGV, why not do the delete as some others have done here?

I didn't know you had to take out the turbo to replace the int. manifold?

Took out the butterfly and the seperating wall and cleaned up the housings.
Left the rod in so i would not get a code.

Couple of haters on NASIOC... Typical. At least most admitted that they like the Forester. And why not, fast wagons rock.
