Well, I did some cleanup and reorganization of the engine bay, didnt really get around to polishing the intake and stuff, but the photos dont do much justice, the engine bay looks very nice and clean.

I did a lot of wire looming and general organizational things, also took some time to clean up the turbo heat shroud and the IC pipes.

Next on the list is some nice silicone hoses and t-bar clamps.





Custom Stainless stell tubing, I bent it myself. Replaces PCV and Idle Control Valve tubing.









Not the cleanest in the world, but not bad.

Tommorow im conducting a "photo shoot" with my car and my dads silver Z06...We will see how it comes out.

yeah, that is for tommorow...

I will be doing a thorough washing of the car...

Yeah, trees all over the place, and I dont drive the car during the week so it tends to get a lot of leaves on it.

I like what you've done with your PCV setup.
Here is what I did. Yours seems like it would resist heat better over time, but the Earl's hose I used should hold up pretty good.
*(Don't know about the plastic PVC fititngs however.)*

Those pipes need some paint or powdercoat. That first rubber bend looks stressed too. I would also recommend a fan shroud, you'll run MUCH cooler. I like the PCV set up, interesting use of compression fittings. Nice.

Keep up the good work.

Go with thermal barrier coatings on your IC pipes. (Keep the engine heat out as best as possible.)
They are very durable like powder coating too.

I'll bet he does not have one.
No BOV + boost = Blown turbo in short order.

Id like a fan shroud but I never had a problem with heat, my car always runs cool...

As for the rubber hoses on the IC pipes, yeah, those are getting replaced by nice blue samco hoses in the next 2 weeks with some t-bar clamps.

Id like to coat the pipes with something eventually.
