I'm going to use a -10 bung on the valve cover cap and running a Mighty Mouse PCV can setup

Also wired the exa pump and took it for a ride around the block to let hotside burn off. I don't have the cold side done yet, so the turbo is just a muffler right now lol. It's real loud, I'll have to fab up a different downpipe with a 4" muffler in it to quiet it down a bit. Any recommendations for a muffler??

Thanks. I put a Monster LT1-S twin disc in when I put the LS3 in. Hopefully it holds

Cold side pipes all welded up. This brings me up to the cradle. Plan is to run the piping under the cradle and into the intercooler. I'll be using stainless steel for the last section since it's more durable than aluminum and will be under the cradle.

So in the video above are you just spinning the turbo and not hooked up to the tb correct. I'd like to see some spool up logs just a description of how it works out. Good luck with everything.

Correct. Just a quick ride to burn off the exhaust. It was sucking through the intercooler so it wasn't under boost.

Finally found some time to finish up the cold side piping. Last piece is fabbed up, just need to finish welding it.

Pipe is welded up and cold side is officially done! My only concern now is ground clearance since I ran the pipe under the cradle. Car has been lowered so I can raise it a bit to help, but there's not much clearance. All I need now are injectors, external pump and meth kit.

Hoping this will quiet it down a bit. Dynomax Race Bullet 12" muffler.

A bullet made my car more baerable going from open downpipe undercar to a bullet turndown under the car. Switching to a magnaflow straight through muffler though to gain more stealth. Nice build BTW.

I installed this bullet style muffler last night. With my car in the garage and running for less than a minute at high idle I was able to drop from 92db to 78 db. I downloaded a decibel app on my cellphone. With the engine warm at lower idle and outside I'm hoping to be in the 75db range.. I could instantly tell the decibels we're lower the second I started the car and with minimal to zero back pressure added..

The dynomax quieted it down some but it's still loud
