Now the real work begins..

Oh crap....

This topic needs to be pinned. You're giving Scott a run for his money.

swedishmike lives on eh?

I purchased it from LG @ lgspeed.se

Great guy to deal with. He gave me a great price and has always answered all of my many questions right away. He's a moderator on turboperformaceclub.com

Man that look sick, good luck with the nira install, is the harness universal and you have to wire it yourself?

About the intercooler pipe, I also have a 2.5 inch pipe crammed right there in front of the radiator shroud, its so tight that it holds itself in place, its touching the oil and PS lines, but not putting any pressure on them as far as I know, ive had it for almost a year now and no leakage problems or anything.

Yea, i'll be wiring it in myself. Once i've got through it, i'll have a writeup for all the wiring connections for anyone else who wants to buy one.

Gangster mark. Whos tuning it btw?? Id love to come check out the Nira setup when done

I'm talking to a couple tuners at the moment, but haven't narrowed it down just yet. I've been playing with the software and it's very user friendly. I should be able to get the car up and running without too much difficulty. Wiring it is the hard part. :)

Some pics of the MAP/IAT sensor. No more MAF.

There is a shop in Kirkland (cant remember the name) that supposedly has "the best" turbo dyno tuner on the west coast......PM Mitch (NWt5R) i think is what his username is, hes been in contact with Hahn and they wont recommend anyone but this shop. good luck with the wiring, looking forward to it.

Thanks. I'll ask Mitch.

Kaylan, is going to use this guy http://www.brianmacy.com/ to tune Nira on her Saab, so that's also a possibility. I'm just not sure I wanna drive for 4 hours on a basemap, I would rather bring someone over from Vancouver. I've been talking to a Motec tuner over there.

We'll see, I gotta order some stainless bends and start making the exhaust pretty soon too.

It's getting closer, but there's still a lot of work to be done.

Starting to receive some exhaust parts. I'm probably going to use part of a down pipe off my buddy's 850, will just need a few adjustments.

3" stainless bends

3" Vibrant resonator and some bungs

Just waiting for my 3" Vibrant flat black muffler, a reducer, some pipe for the wastegate and still the 4" bend for the intake pipe.

Currently sorting out all the wiring for Nira before I get started.

No, i don't have a welder but I have got a buddy who will TIG it for free. Just mocking it up will be a bit of a bitch, especially the rear portion.
