I guess it's a bit like the obstruction of an offset hood scoop

To me, it is a little big yes, but that doesn't bother what would bother me a all the light that will be going off all the time, that alone besides the size would be the distraction

The filter and MAF pipe are for a Subaru so it's unique and custom cuz they are installed in another car... It has a hood scoop like a scooby.

I have 02 wrx front seats in my explorer but all the electric Ford controls still work.

I'd say I make something almost daily that I could post in here...

I built the Celaru: 2000 Toyota Celaru w/ full STi drivetrain.
I'm currently working on 3 project that are pretty unique..

I did a full Sedan all metal flare conversion to a WRX Wagon

GC8 w/ custom widebody, tucked harness, tucked brake line and relocated ABS pump, smooth engine bay, custom rotated IHI style turbo kit etc..

My track Forester w/ custom v-mount, custom forward placed turbo kit, custom side exit exhaust, custom all metal widebody to tuck 275/40/17s

Also my second Toyotabaru project. 87 AE86 couple with ez30r motor swap and s13 independent rear suspension.

So ya this was a mod for a Tacoma but I do plenty to Subarus to occasionally get away with it.

I'm pretty sure no one's allowed to criticize how unique any build by Johann is. Some may not be everyone's taste (read, a touch extreme) but they are absolutely unique.

plastidip is a really good primer. spray on top color while PD is still wet for a "wet" look. these exact wheels are for sale in the FS thread...

I wired this switch up to power the I/C sprayer. The stock switch is obviously momentary to where you have to hold it and then theirs the 4 second delay before it cuts off ater you let off the button. I figured the best time to use it would be during spirited driving, and it sucked having to push and hold the button for a little bit while driving so I didn't use it much. I wired this switch up so I just have to flick it on(red led lights up) and it will stay pumping until I flick it off. The JDM switch does exactly what my new switch does(it can also be boost activated too) but the only site I could find that had them looked sketchy and the button was 60 bucks, and this was only 4 bucks.

The blank switch looks like crap because it was a real tight fit so it was hard to drill through without ripping through the sides.

They are like 50 bucks or something, and it's painfully obvious they are fake.

Get an adjustable pressure activated switch like this...so it comes on automatically when boost kicks in.

I'd rather have it running constantly during spirited driving. I don't want it cutting on and off constantly and I wont always be in boost when I might want to use it. But im sure you can still wire up a second switch to use when ever you want.

I have a JDM Auto intercooler switch I will sell for $40 if you are interested. It has a DIY pigtail for it for easy wire connections. Let me know if you are interested.
