ehh i had a carbing craft and didnt like it. and i still have the stock one. but i honestly think its cleaner without. i like the open look it gives it.
and by cleaning it up more ive taken off some ugly factory stickers and such. and i got perrin fuel rails sitting waiting to go on. that will clean it up alot as well.

i wana see other peoples set ups!

I tossed out the belt cover aswell. the more 'open' the bay feels, the cleaner it is. thats why you have to relocate the battery and fuse box. clearing out the sides does wonders.

To the OP, your setup is very nice, just ditch the worm gear clamps and get yourself some t-bolt clamps and you're golden.

looks good. There is a kid on here who is making turbo kits and they are hands down the nicest ones ive ever seen. They have a optional titanium heat shield and if he will make me that seperate I will run that. Until then, I just have my housing ceramic coated. I was never a big fan of the turbo blankets although some out there perform well. I've seen people do a dyno pull and put their hand directly on the bag and felt nothing. haha
