Yes its running smooth man. I'm just having a few things re done and cleaned up. The custom downpipe this shop made for me wasn't that clean so I got a stainless supra tt downpipe and my friend is getting it fab'd up for the GS. Another thing is the heater core hoses. With the jdm twins it leaves you absolutely no room to run the hoses without crimping them. A buddy of mine is changing the aluminum fittings on the heater core so they will be angled which will let the hoses connect properly.

Havnt really drove it much since i owned it lol. Ive had it only a few months now and probably drove less than 1000 miles before i did the swap and less than 150 miles since the swap. Since the swap I havnt really gotten on it hard yet. Its a hell of a lot better now than it was on my initial start up. Had a few bugs worked out and now I would say its at 95% complete. I just want it at 100% before i really open it up. I will say when i have driven it since the swap its awesome The turbo sounds nice and the factory purge system(bov) sounds pretty cool. It exhaust sounds bad *** IMO. The tone is really deep and I barely noticed it on the highway.

Although a very straight forward and plug and play swap, there were a few wires to repin in my situation for the shiftlock and everything else to work properly.
