factory radiator and fans, this combo works for me, even without the shroud, with a 160* thermostat and reprogrammed fans, it's peak 196* in traffic with the a/c on.

first drive was successful, nothing caught fire

I'm been getting some street miles on her, drives good, no hickups. I have to sort boost control and vacuum still, leaning towards C02 at this point.
finally got her washed, turns out it cleans up pretty nice.

got some driving footage, I think the turbos are louder than the "exhaust". so it's two different noises coming out of there.

no drone, But the more I drive it, I realize it's louder than I'm used to. I did put the partition back in, I came from Corsas Pace car/sport exhaust, which spoiled me with low throttle volume.
for reference. I'll rate C5Z TI catback volume at cruise speeds at 3.7/10, The Corsas 5.5/10, these 7/10. they remind of Borla Stingers

good eye, it's a 2012-ish Sonata. now you mention it, i'm surprised it's cracked already.

Slight update, just have been driving it, looking for any bugs or issues that may pop up, before I dissect it again. it's been pretty flawless. only issue is, it did bleed off about 5psi oil pressure, due to tapping into oil system for two turbos i'll assume, but this is a different motor, so I don't have an apples to apples before an after. I just bumped it up from 5W-40 T6 to 15W-50 mobil 1 to make it look "normal" and me me feel better. i'll throw a melling in there eventually. put about 1200 miles on it so far.
Got some 3psi springs in the gate, will be adding C02 on top of them for boost control.

Started dissecting for the holley finally. Slow build, but steady-ish

Officially running on holley, with stock gauges.
I need a better speed input to send to the holley, It's just grabbing the signal from the factory pcm now, and Holley read's it all whack. I want to get the reading from the front wheels speed anyway. so I can setup my boost by speed


and made the trek home
