Bloody hell, you did a lot of work! That OTR intake is quiet a good idea, haven't ever seen one done for a turbo like that before. Did the paint hang on to the compressor housing OK with the heat?

Re: why the name goldie

Sorry mate I meant like a lighter gauge or thinner material I don't know my sheet metal terms lol! You see these OTR's working really well in Commodores for the LS series motors, yours is a cracker.
