Hey All!  Well my project is up and road reliable  now,  But now I'm ready to up the anty a bit.  I'd like to know what set ups everyone is running. I'm running a 79 Glassback, with an 85 Turbo coupe motor, an 88 upper intake for hood clearance , LA3 ecm,   lg vam and brown top injectors, an 87 TB T5 , Aerostar Alum. drive shaft with a 76 Pinto 8" rear with 3.40 open gears.  I'm running the" I think" (tired)  factory T3 turbo.  I'm looking to go with a FMIC that will fit behind the 79 grille . Any suggestions. I saw somewhere on here that someone was running their  vam and filter thru the fender for a cold intake away from the radator heat.   I appreciate the help and hints,  Thanks for the answers and suggestions. :)

Baby NPR,(just sold one)
Mitsi Evo 8( I have one of these)
Ebay stuff.

It going to be tight on a Pinto,I am
going A/W on the passenger rear floorboard,
passenger will have to deal with either
staddling the ic tubes or I might run
them next to the trans hump.

Thanks all, great info,  Mike do you have more pics of your motor set up that shows how you ran the tubing for the IC?  Does anyone else have pics of their IC set ups?  Thanks Jim
