Looks great. Glad it is running now. :good:

I am a little curious about the MAF sitting on the upper-deck side of the turbo though. Even with a good intercooler, intake temps will fluctuate a lot with boost, and I don't believe that the IAT sensor can keep up with it (look at the bulb-end of the sensor -they are semi-insulated in that resin/plastic whatever coating). On a MAF system, accurate IAT is far more critical, as the ECM measures the cooling of the MAF's hot-wire as a function of the temp of the air cooling it, plus the traditional air-density calculations the ECM needs the IAT for. I have very rarely seen a MAF run on the boost side of the intake, and the rapidly changing IAT is the best reason I can think for that.
