I also got to work on my ABS re-location and swapping out my ABS hardlines for the SS lines:

Zip-tied and labeled everything:



(as you can see, the lines "4" and "5" are not threaded in the ABS block. I had a buddy finally come over to help, and he somehow cross-threaded these two lines. I contacted the dealer, just to start the pricing quotes, and they told me $1700.. Luckily, I was able to find one for $140. Costly error..

Installed:





Here are the two lines going to the rear unions:



Installed in the rear unions: (for anybody thinking of going this route, they are located right behind/above the steering rack on the drivers side.)

Finished routing the IC piping to the turbo.



Drilled a 3" hole in the driver side, underneath the headlight:



The pipes don't like up "perfectly." This shouldn't cause any problems, as long as the coupler/clamp are secure?

Received my fitting for my catch can install, -8AN x 3/8" npt. Inside the USPS box, the fitting was inside this little baggy. Reminded me of when I was 5 years old, bringing a sack lunch to school, lol.

Just got a call about 30 minutes ago, also received a couple pics via text. My calipers are ready, done with powdercoating!

A buddy of mine did it for me. We have worked together for quite a while, gave me a REALLY good deal I could not pass up..

Thanks man! I got all the information from Eminence. I saw that he had converted his ABS to SS lines, so I asked him about it. He shared with me all the information he used on his order, and even referred me to where he went. Got a pretty good deal on everything too!

No pics yet, but I picked up a couple things:

- JIC Magic front strut bar
- Version Select front
- Version Select sides

Been going through a lot of stuff personally as of late, so the car has been put on hold for a little while.

It's almost done though, and I plan on being done by the end of the month. We'll see how that goes.. Lol

Sent from my MyTouch 4g with typos using Autoguide
