Black is great. Go nuts. But if you were curious, the OEM units are a very dark olive green. (And cheap last time I checked.)

I see no functional issues (in the images) with any of the vacuum or intercooler plumbing that uses brass plumbing bits. Other than zip-ties not being reusable, the rest of the issues are cosmetic.

There is a common mistake with vacuum lines to check for. You will want to make sure the wastegate actuator is seeing boost only. Never vacuum. It needs to get a boost signal from before the throttle body. Not after. This means it can't share the same source as the BOV, FPS, or any other items that see boost and vacuum.

I'm speechless that they thought it'd be acceptable to deliver the car with a used, crush bent downpipe.

Get a 1.6l line for your ac. It doesn't take much to get it to fit and it totally avoids the turbo area.

Apearantly my comment was deleted from this post because it was offensive. Guess what it's a public forum I can have my say, just like shawn B does so unwantedly in so many other posts, that is my rights. If you ask me the whole thread should be deleted, it's all offensive. Shawn if you want your car built right us boston boys can build it for you right and for a Good Price. We take care of our people over here.

Topdog, your post was deleted because it was completely counterproductive. Reason given to you at time of deletion: "Non constructive antagonistic post".
It was not because it was offensive.
We do try to keep these feedback threads on topic, on track, and devoid of useless bullshit like your deleted post.
Stay on topic please. Consider this your final warning.

I would LOVE to do this. It would solve the issue in a most elegant and OEM correct way.

There is an early 1.6 line and a late 1.6 line. In order to figure out which one has the correct connections that will attach to a B13 compressor, I'd have to order a set of each. Wait for them to come in, then see if I can figure out which B13 compressor works with one or the other of the new lines. All of which is time, money, and a PITA.

If you know which 1.6 line goes to which B13 compressor, I'd be all over it.

This is the pic Serban sent me, but no further info except he *thought* it might include (re)machining the aluminum hose ends (!).

Sweetness. ^^^^^^^^

Shawn, if you can, remove that turbo induction pipe and check for rust on the interior of those welds. I would hate for a small piece of rust to flake off and damage one of the compressor wheels (it doesn't take much when the compressor blades/fins are spinning in the 120-130,000 RPM region!)

Also, I see a little yellow discoloration along the upper/lower oil pan. Is that from a coolant leak or something else??

I kinda don't like the continued bashing...the shit is on the road to being dealt with as I understand it. We all know it shouldn't have happened. We all see some quality problems. We all know this is a sucky situation for Shawn. It's one thing to point out a valid issue like a missing crank angle sensor but I don't see the point of comments that offer nothing more than negativity for the already crappy situation.
