    Meth kit installed

    I am not done fully, have some issues understanding the vc-2 BUT it works and OMG the car is strong now! Terry and CM have been great answering my (stupid) questions within minutes, I am amazed by the level of support and by the insane n54 on meth!!!

    I am verry happy with my mount of the CM pro tank, will try to post some pics later!

    VC2 is a little intimidating the first tim eyou try to set it up, but its actually very simple. take a break and re-read if you get frustrated

    Beautiful! Is that an e90 or e92? And did you drill into the plastic cover or just the board?

    I like your mount. I used double sided Velcro to hold the base down to the removable amp cover. Then used a Velcro strap tied behind the drivers side taillight cover. I can fully open and close the trunk hatch and removing the tank if need be takes a few seconds. The only thing I need to do is put a rubber surround on the metal bracket I used to run my strap through.

    I can't tell from you pics, but are your lines totally hidden? On my install you can see ~10" boost/meth line and power wires are wrapped in wire loom which makes it look pretty good.

    You shouldn't be able to see any wires, anywhere in the car. Unless you ran it on top of the carpet.

    How so without cutting the rear carpet? I didn't want to cut anything so I ran mine up over the carpet above the wheel well. There's space behind the rear seat frame.

    I removed the plastic box and screwed two pieces of wood in the metal below, so I can go back to a stock look. Except for those screws I have done no cutting to the interior and the meth & vacum lines run under the carpet all the way.

    I am expecting my kit on Saturday and will start making my template this evening!
    Great idea man.

    Any hints or tips for my install?
    Did you tap the existing intake or did you use one of the meth elbows? How did this go?

    I used an AR meth elbow, though I wasnt happy with it, it was hard to get the damn thing airtight (happy I tested before installing). And the silicon couplers where a little to tight. I was lucky and had a cp-e fitting over that was a few inches longer.

    I would spend a little extra and get a charge pipe that can take the stock dump valves.

    I dont think tapping the plastic stock elbow is a good idea, it is to soft.

    Maybe tapping the stock charge pipe would work?

    I think it can be made to "work" like almost anything, but I do not think it is the best solution nor a solution that will be leak free forever...

    I vote for a charge pipe over a meth elbow, an alternative would be tapping the post FMIC alu-pipe (if you have a aftermarket FMIC) and keeping stock elbow and charge pipe, probably a bit trickier to reach during install but also a more stock look once done.
