Looks great, just like the other two I have installed. Just want to let you know everything fits in pretty well. The only thing I noticed was you will need t cut the pipe that goes from the Turbo to the Intercooler. It seems to be a little on the long side. Besides that though, everything runs nice...

Glad to see you got a Link to control your engine management. Life will be a lot easier with that.

So what are you doing about the fuel line conversion? Did Tom send you an adaptor to make the conversion? It is worthwhile to do that modification.

Skywalker is right about the charge pipe. It's too long. It wound up placing the intercooler to high and it started to bang up against the flange just below the hood gasket. I cut almost 2 inches from the pipe to allow the intercooler to sit under the flange that supports the hood gasket. Also, don't use the supplied gaskets with the Tial Wastegate. They will blow out in a couple of days. Go flange to flange with no gaskets. Trust me, it will work. I had a hell of a time with this. The metal between the two is so flat, it seals up 99.9%. If the metal is not flat enough on the Ludespeed supplied up pipe you may need to file it flat. I had to do this to stop a horrible exhaust leak before the wastegate. You may also need to clock the turbo as well, so check that out. Make damn sure if you use a RRFPR that you hook that up right. Once you get the OEM cat/cats pipe out of the car the and the down pipe installed you may find a rattle or to from the heat shielding. Just bend them out of the way. There are no hangers or support brackets with the new Ludespeed down pipe and as a result of the movement of the down pipe you get the rattles on the heat shielding. Nothing major. I plan on having a bracket welded on to attach to the factory support. That should make it way stonger and move less at idle. Once all of the little bugs are out you will enjoy the kit alot. The rush is worth it all. Good luck...
