Made a little progress today...

Got the new silicone intercooler couplers installed, man I now understand why people hate having to install them... Such a pain to get some of them on, especially on this car, the coupler from the turbo to the hot side of the intercooler pipe is so awkward to install considering the turbo sits practically under the intake manifold.

 This one was just a general pain to get due to the sheer awkwardness of the angle the end-tank of the intercooler has.
 This... oh how I loathed this one... Had to get to it from between the cold pipe and the J-boot for the AFM with a long screwdriver and even then I was barely able to undo the clamp.
 About 30-40 min later and its all put back together.
All done... probably should have replaced the diverter valve hose while it was apart but that will come soon enough, already spent enough getting things tidy again on this car...

Thanks to Lindsey Racing for their quality 6ply intercooler couplers that came a whole lot quicker than I thought they would and even came with new clamps for them all too!
