I had a chat with choppedgu and got some ideas for extra intercooler performance.

I think this is what he was suggesting

How did you go about the alarm? Sounds like a great investment though!

Chopped what is the hose attachment thing you've got going there and are they any good if so where do you get one

Its a drain cleaner. It worked very well small enough to fit in the small holes in the bottom of the rail and has reverse facing holes to push water back so it runs up the rail. Gets reasonable pressure too.
I borrowed it from my father in law not sure where it came from.

Ohh crap thats what i forgot...

The blower fell off and landed at the feet of a gathering of women whom were wearing light, semi-see thru billowey dresses so not all was lost.
And a box of pillows fell off my roof rack which they started to fight each other with, then go for a dip in a nearby fountain.
