    XXR 530s. I've had them for about 5 years now? Yes they came that color.

    I have posted photos in previous posts. I still haven't even picked it back up yet.

    I know, every time I break out the shop vac I go "oh I can do that now too while I wait for the turbo" and then it's night time lol

    Soooo crazy big update. Been slacking on updating the post.

    So to start things off. I went with s completly out of the ordinary turbo decision. Even though I've had issues with them in the past I couldn't turn down the deal. I couldn't wait any longer for BNR to build the turbo so I picked up a PTE 6266 for a crazy steal of a deal! Gen 2 PTE 6266. .82 ar. 4" ported compressor housing. T3 flange with 3" vband outlet.

    Exhaust manifold and Downpipe were already built around a 5858 so it was a perfect drop in fit. No crazy adapters needed like I had with the BNR.

    Completed to do list:
    -Drilled out and re-tapped EM for M10x1.5
    -Installed turbo and EM
    -Finished all of the custom 3" under route charge pipe plumbing
    -SSC wiring finished
    -Made and installed AN SS braided return line from the PRV
    -Installed and wired in the WOT box
    - Bought a vacuum QC fitting and line kit in Amazon for 30$. Will be redoing all the boost source and vacuum source lines.
    - Got the new tune map uploaded and just got a 6' serial cable to program the SSC and WOT box from in the car
    - Plugged the relief port on the GFB BPV since I will now be running full VTA.
    - Catch can remounted and plumbed
    - New Racequip helmet is in
    - Started it up. Ran great!

    Need to take it out for a quick data log and then we wait for 4/20 going up to Justin's to make some jam. Until then I'll do a couple other things like remove the fog lights. The passenger fog is keeping the bumper from seating due to it hitting the IC piping. NBD

    To do list still:
    - Shave the calipers
    - Mount new slicks
    - Fix the airbag kit in the rear
    - Install push connect vacuum fittings

    That's about it for now.

    Under route looks nice, but I suggest clamping it to the bottom of the timing cover. I had a lot of vibration there (and mine was only 1 pc so I assume yours will be worse) and it rubbed pretty bad after a while. I put a tbolt clamp and a little bracket and it solved the issue. Just something to consider while you are working on it now.

    I actually do have a hanger there lol. I didnt with my previous under route. Didn't have any issues. But I did get a 3" pipe hanger and attached it to the Timing cover. I'll have to take photos of it later.
