It looks like theres one, if you follow the piping it looks like it.

And Electromotive TecII, nice. I hope he has the anti-lag setup.

I don't see it. All I can tell is the piping runs down by the low beam, and the low mount turbo has a pipe coming out of it. It could very well just along the frame, around the suweet CF intake (ahem) and into the pipe we can see.

Or am I missing something? And is that a TCD manifold?

Im from Brantford and i seen this car around and i remember racing him in my e36 and he couldnčt keep up, so either he doesnt know how to drive it or its not running right because i walked him with a 3.10 LSD borla exhaust and M50B25 turbo e36 only running 8psi, and im sure he is the only red e30 around here thats turbod, and ther is not many e30 around town here, but its really clean from what Ive seen anyways

Thats what I said. Wouldn't make sense, trans is worth more than the whole car. Plus its not even as strong. Double negative.

Hi fellas ,nice forum you have here. That's my E30 up top. Yes intercooler is behind headlight,although i don't think its as effective as it could be. I got the car about 4 years ago down near the Lakeshore. It needed work,especially the file running it.m30 ,e28 rad,garret turbo,e32 oil pan, 3 inch exhaust front to back,eibachs springs and struts/shocks,i think e36 rack,cant remember,shortened e34 front half drive shaft ,stock rear half Wildwood brakes up front,750i Master cylinder,265/5 tranny Some say why?,its the way it came.I actually enjoy it with the 3.25 diff,its always ready to go,turbo car so gas mileage, whats that? I have a mini cooper for that. Its been an ongoing project.Its A !@#$%^ Rocket. Mister
