Default After Day 1, V-1 Install

Here are some pics for you guys. Had a little trouble with the belt and getting the tension off it, but will work on that again tomorrow. Got the bracket and head unit on, with it pointing me towards an intercooler.

OP...you are always one to come through with whatever it is that youre planning. When I read something about you are thinking about doing something, you always come through and finish up the job. Kudos to you.

Nice! I remember when I helped my brother put one on his 00 GT. We got it done in a day but had a car lift and every/any tool needed.

Keep it up.

Man let me know how it goes with the install. I had planned on having my buddy take my car to the shop this week for the V1 install but my Tial Bov want be shipped OUT until around the 5th so I've pushed the install date to the tenth. What kind of V1 do you have S or T trim? Good luck with the install bro..
