Yeah.. I'm on the process on replacing them with T-bolt clamps.

I should be posting some pictures tonight of the filter setup behind the rear bumper.

Here is some pictures of the filter setup behind the bumper. I also had to get an original manifold gasket and modifit to fit my S&S headers because the gasted provided by S&S had a leak.

Now that is just INGENIUS!!!! I wish that I had thought of that Idea. Sometimes if I give it fullthrottle during rain I flood the entire charge pipe! I might have to go copycat!

don't you see the big trade mark? just kiding. It came out very good I think.

I replaced some of the clamps with some T-bolt (compresor outlet) and I think Im getting better response from the turbo. Maybe some of the clamps had a leak. I stop in couple exhaust shop and they won't take my CAT out. I'm driving down to Miami tonight so I'll had my friend do it for me.

Oh... the oil catch can came in today so I'll be posting pictures later this week.

Well the actual bumper and the foam material around it will work as a dam.

What are you going to use to protect the turbo from debris from your back tire throwing it up on to the turbo? and if I were you i would not use a (oil charged filter) get something like a AEM filter or any other cone filter that is a (Dry Filter) when you used oil charged filter with turbos the turbo its self will draw that filter oil into the turbo so you kind of want to stay away from those. And if you have not yet I would also get rid of your CAT cause those will brake up and you can say goodbye to your turbo,

Well... If you look at my pics in my posts you will see that a simple mudguard that
you can buy at AZ or any parts store will take care of that. The rubber deflects plenty of road debris... Carlos, I would take a look at this option too!

Their is absolutely nothing wrong with running a K&N air filter.

thanks.....
I think next step will be the fuel upgrades.

Edit: Question about injectors... If I upgrade the injectors I would need to do the tuning on the pcm? Also what fuel pressure regulator do you guys recommend?

Seeing as how you got somebody to tune I would suggest grabbing a set of 36lb injectors from the junkyard. Get em off a 3800 supercharged motor or you can contact Ed Morad who deals with alot of salvage GM parts.

What is your idle fuel pressure set at now? The new fuel system with the Delphi injectors has a setting at 59 to 60 psi at idle. I think your fue pressure is 39 to 45 with the Bosch style injectors. You may not need a new regulator if you go with larger injectors and a tune. Somebody here can correct me if I am wrong...
