    haha it was 4 in the morning and i was trying to get to work lol. by the time i saw him it was too late. the lip scooped it up into the intercooler. no damage to the intercooler, but it knocked it back into the radiator punching a hole in it and then it went under the engine ripping out the underpan you made and the stock one lol. that little bastard ticked me off a bit haha

    a good number of the necessary vacuum lines were removed that were needed (numerous boost leaks) so as i started finding and capping them, it started raising the boost. eventually it got to the point where it was overboosting. it would boost so strong it'd blow vacuum lines off so I ziptied them all on. the stock blow off valves weren't up to the task and it destroyed the primary turbo, twice lol. on my profile look at the "sad day" album, it has all the pictures of damage from hitting a raccoon at 75 and the blown turbo and pictures banzai's sending me as it's being rebuilt. also, banzai sent me pics of their porting templates on the plates. the intake ports were polished, but not ported, and the exhaust ports weren't even touched. because the housings are cracked though, i'm getting new ones and they'll be ported out by banzai.

    spent most of the summer trying to sort out the vacuum line mess, then the primary turbo blew. replaced the stock twins, then blew a water seal in the engine. i'm deployed now so as soon as the money starts rolling in she's going in to get rebuilt
