Like when people do not solder there connections, and when people do not read the manual, and my personal favorite when people don't know how to tune there car and blame the hardware/software.


On another note, I am in for results also. In order to torture your block you need to drive it.

Will make its first pass at the Subaru Shootout in Vegas on 5/5. Have a few street miles on it but it is in full race mode for the event now.

Wow, someone took offense to that one. In plug and play form, they do have some sync issues. I still love my AEM ECU's and they're currently on every racecar that I personally own/work with

In high stress and vibration situations, soldering by itself can fail and cause issues much sooner than other methods...just sayin...there are better ways to make connections than just soldering alone.

Looks good to me. Function over form.

Have you ever caught anything in the turbo with no filter?

Wondering if I ran mine filter less in the engine bay what my chances are of being ok

But you could have taken just a little bit more time to clean up your engine bay. Or does your engine bay reflect your craftsmanship?

I can understand function over form, but have a little pride.

Running without a filter for a few drag passes probably won't hurt much (not sure how much there really is to gain from running filterless though), but running like that all the time is going to cause some increased wear and tear on turbo and engine parts and you probably will be filing compressor blades like crazy if you go anywhere where there is lots of sand or large dust particles in the air.

Who cares how it looks...if it runs like a bat outta hell, what else really matters on a drag car?

Plus, anyone questioning Crystal's craftsmanship hasn't been around here long enough apparently. He does some great work. Also, when you work a full time job, have a family, and do builds and tunes for people in what little free time you have, that doesn't leave a whole lot of time for your test and tune on your own projects. So when things get to that point, you start to shrug off the little stuff like "making the paint sparkle in the engine bay" or "all my hoses aren't the same color". As long as it works properly, who cares?

For a customer's vehicle, definitely go the extra mile, but for your personal vehicle, if there is time, great, if there isn't, screw it...

I see where your coming from and id be lying if i said i didnt care how mine looked!

but truth be told, as you go from daily driving one to just crushing ppl and removing the motor becomes more often done you start to get out of how it looks and more how its gonna run. idc anymore about it as much as i did when it had say 450 whp.
