had to remove the 2.5 tonne eyelets that were on the bullbar and rear bar and replace them with something stronger as CCDA wouldnt pass eyelets as recovery points.....

I unbolted the eyelets, cut them out and welded new peices of 25mm thick plate in through the bar welded to both sides....

The intercooler pipework was a little tricky.
I wanted it out of the way.
I ran it through the front fire wall and behind the headlights and out and inbetween the outer and inner gaurds on both sides and back into the engine.......

I lost a 2 pound pressure drop from 12 pound to 10 pound when i did this, i then fitted the boost controller and wound up the fuel. I now have 15 pound and no noticable difference in lag.
