On a more serious note, I am buying the last little odds and ends.. I need a coupler for the inlet of the turbo... that is 3". I am running a stock intake... is that 2.5" or 2.25?

Just went down and measured my stock intake. 2.5 inches.

I recommend hooking it up this way.

Is anyone running oem mud flaps? Really struggling to find a set and the Ford ones are backordered and don't appear to be st compatible? Halp! Don't want the road armor garbage for that price.

Rather pay for molded than a piece of waterjet cut hdpe

Is it a different splash shield altogether? Front section or mid (rear) section? Are you replacing a broken one?
It just has a cutout for the oil filter and drain.

There is an aftermarket one for a little more that is plastic and has more cutouts too

Anyone have any pics of a woosh dp installed? Specifically looking at clearance between the lower hanger bracket and end of downpipe, don't need much room but I want to Weld a v band at the bottom of the bend in the downpipe and plumb the cutout to dump right there. Then I don't have to cut up the stock exhaust, and I'm only into this thing less than 200 bucks with a pair of v bands, a 3" stainless turn down section, and the cutout.


Still need to order the fuff stuff, lines and fitting for catch cans, Coolant, oil, thermal line covers, and an airlift Coolant vac.

Won't be doing the install until september.

I think it will fit fine after staring at this pic i found on the interweb. Bought the parts to fab it up, finally I get to actually fabricate something on this car! Will stub out the v band flange about 1.5 inches off the dp, the. Vband to cutout, and a simple 3-4" turndown facing off to the side

triggered a p0299 underboost code this morning on the way to work. It is extremely humid, so im going to assume the map sensor just got a bunch of condensation in the element... you guys experience this? will check tip vs map and wgdc later today to verify its not the flapper... not that i care with the BT going in soon, but if thats it ill have ford fix it so i have a fresh turbo to put it back to stock when i sell it.
