That TB adapter looks nice, it will be nice to see everything sorted. Have you done alot of full throttle testing with this system?

Testfit today, seems to fit well and installation is easy. So far so good.
I didn't figure out what size sealing o-ring I need so I can't run the car for now...but I'll get the right o-ring in the next couple of days and then I'll drive it. To be honest, I'm a bit disappointed that it can't run on the original rubber boot and while this does not scream modified (the kit will get black BOV valves) it still does not look factory enough to me.
Anyway, since that factory look is now ticked off as failed, I think I'm going to do the SC outlet tube in the same fashion as this last part I made.
At least that will make it look more consistent and also give a bit more flexibility for tolerances in the charge tract.

Cool 3D prints. I'm not fully happy with the strength of 3D prints though in general, but PETG is a great material for car applications IMHO.

The devil is always in the details, depending how you design the geometry...use the process and the materials combined with the material properties and post-treatment....you can extend their range of functionality a bit.
I found that PETG and ASA are cost effective materials that can do some work in the engine bay. ABS as well but that is harder to print and not really worth it over ASA for example.
