That torque steer battle is pretty hilarious.
While fixing my coolant leak 2 weekends ago I noticed not 1 but both axles have torn boots on the CV's. sigh. I also threw on a Prosport turbo blanket on the 6466 turbine housing curteous of advice from Chris Singer and Will Dawson. The turbine housing is ceramic coated but the bay still gets toasty with the turbo sitting up high in the bay
Do you know the cause of the boots tearing? maybe raise the front up a little bit if you're on coils see if that helps.
Might need to add a hood vent on the right side to extract heat from hotside and downpipe to relieve bay temps while moving and especially when moving on boost.
I like the way s2000 hood vents look in the pic attached but I think a vent with louvers would work better adding in the venturi effect.
i'm on stock gen2 struts and springs, which is why I also am not hooking 3rd gear for shit on full tilt now
Where are you sitting for power?
