I'm guessing you'll have a low profile hat to go over the throttle body?

Have you test fit the compressor housing? Looks like it might not fit, its kinda huge...

Hows the build coming? Have you tuned the TEC3 yet?



Also, kind of a silly question, where do you get your AN fittings at? I'm having a really hard time finding some for my oil lines to the turbo without having to go to JEGS or Summit.
