well today i was did replace all my vacuum lines with 4.5mm turbosmart silicone hose, looks really good and the wall is 4mm which is much more better than normal silicone vacuum hoses out there. Also got my new TCV from Chris at IPD and was trying to figure out where to install it and ended on my BSR intake heat shield, looks really clean and everything is good.
Also with my TCV got a few other stuff, ipd subrame bushing, steering boot, cv joint boot. Hope to take picture on the last things, i just trying to decide with clutch kit to get, my SPEC stage III plus die on me last week just before starting to have fun with the car. Well i guess patience is the clue here. Something that i really wanted to do since last year is putting new flex guard on all my coil wires, looks really clean now.

well, after trying to figure out of converting my dual mass flywheel with single mass and R Spec clutch and found that is really interesting how we can also use 850R single mass flywheel and clutch which is bolt on, i just did a chance to my local special machine shop to inspect my flywheel.
After they checked got a call about everything is perfect and it can be resurface with the special machine that they have for DM, also i will need to get my SPEC Stage 3+ and give them a call later so they can double check the depth and make any calibration if is necessary. Total cost of the resurface was $40 bucks. I got a good price on the Stage 3+ cause we a spec dealer in our performance shop, so well i guess seems to be better and better, cant wait to drive my car again.
Let me know if you are interested,. I didnt use the R clutch and flywheel cause the M56 use 22 Splines and m66 use 23. SPEC offers me to build a special disc for me but i will keep my dual mass cause it like new now.

we have a performance shop and one of our suppliers has all king of hoses and intercoolers . Today i went to my local muffler shop so they can make me the joiners, everything will be ready by tomorrow. From what i see a P2 intercooler kit can be made for less than $250 bucks
