I'm working on getting the FM Complete Intake Completed.  I THINK I'm done. 



I did have a question, though.  Do I have the boost controller plugged into the right lines?

Yup!

The TurboSmart MBC helps make this idiot-proof since it labels the barb to the wastegate actuator (some don't and guys have fitted the MBCs backwards and wonder "what's wrong").

Find a place to mount the MBC, zip ties are OK, and make the hoses as short as possible without risk of them kinking (I like silicon hoses for air hoses, they're much more flexible than rubber).

Looks correct and also looks like time to replace your radiator. Brown/Green are signs its time to replace before it goes bad.

Yikes that's some dark antifreeze. Looks fine, I prefer to rotate the nipple on the hot piping, where the boost line to the MBC comes from, down towards the intake tube for the turbo. This is purely for aesthetics as I see nothing in your install that would stop it from working.

Ditch the EBC and replace it with a 50 ohm resistor.

And for heavens sake... Straighten your oil cap. 😉

Thanks guys!

I wanted to make sure the line going to the wastegate was actually the wastegate.  I saw a free line and plugged it in Smiley I suppose I could have googled what the wastegate looked like in hindsight xD

I trimmed my mbc mount so I could mount it directly to the mass airflow sensor
