if you do a foil delete, put SOMETHIGN on the first charge tube. I loved the way mine sounded for a while, but the loud whistling gets old after a while.

cleaning up the charge tubes and some paint along with just polishing things up makes a huge difference, take the turbo intake tubes off and clean em up nice, etc. you would be suprised how good they can look real easy.

Subscribed. This is a quest I have been debating myself. Curious as to what others look like.
