I just need to know the websites/companies that other boosted Swifters have used for the above mentioned when it comes to getting what I needed to make the installation quick and smooth.

Does anyone have a list of the type of parts and quantities or sizes or lengths they used because that would be a good step in the right direction.

i like frozenboost for tubing, silicone parts, clamps, intercoolers, etc.
http://www.frozenboost.com/

what you will run into will be that there's not really any "standard" set for the project you want to take on. you have a clean slate to start with and have every option available. you need to get a plan together for your main goals and try to stick to the plan.

it took me 2 years from start to finish and i built some things more than once to get something that i was satisfied with before i moved on to the next task. what i ran into was that there's more than one way to skin a cat and choosing the method that seemed best for me took a lot of planning and list making.

a project like this is custom from the ground up and it will have you making adjustments right up to the moment you actually start bolting parts onto your car. :wink:

i tried to find good local sources for hardware and materials and then started to develop relationships with the guys at the shops. the nuts and bolts sort of things kind of play out as you go along, one thing leading to the next. the big tasks get put onto the list and all the smaller tasks just sort of follow a logical path as you assemble the car.

Okay, maybe just one push in the right direction. Where can I get the BSP fitting for sending oil to the turbo?
