Started to build an intake box this weekend to help with IAT's this is as far as I got Sunday.
I used aluminum from my hood cuts.

Some awesome progress on Sunday!!! I felt cold air for the first time coming out the vents!!!  I mounted the new bracket, installed A/C compressor and lines. Then pulled a vaccum and did a charge.  After going to and from AutoZone to find the belt i needed 4 times I ended up using one that was just a little to big and probably would have drug the backside of the compressor under load. 45" belt for anyone asking.  the proper size i believe is a 44.5 which i found at o'rileys this morning. This makes me a solid 90% complete to having a/c. 

 

The 10% i am short is power to the compressor,  i manually jumped the compressor to turn activate the clutch off the EPS power box.  I dont have power to my A/C plug on my harness. i have to dig deep on this one for sure. Hopefully i can figure this out this week.

So this picture is with my a/c delete belt, bypassing the compressor.

Awesome. AC is "very nice" (understatement) to have at this point in Houston :) Maybe you can help @Dave install it into his 350Z. <ducks>

We installed the 11k front 10k rear S.W.I.F.T springs mounted on Saturday, and wow! What a massive difference!!!  The adjustment knobs are super changing from Stiff to smooth.  The ride quality feels so much better. The car doesn't feel like a Cadillac but is still very comfortable for the street. Everything feels much more responsive. Defiantly this is the way to go in my opinion for these coils.
We are registered for the track event in September 23rd-24th at MSR Houston. I will be able to provide more feedback then for sure. MSRH will be great to do and compare to how they were with the 8kg spring rates.  We will be doing some back road carving soon as well.

Made some changes to my a/c system, more just the belt.
Added a pulley from an 03 accord V6 since it's a 1/4" smaller and now using a 44" OD belt.
The tensioner is now at the new belt line and it's awesome. Lots of room between belt and compressor now.
Before it was pretty tight.
Best part about using economic car parts.
This pulley with bearing was on the shelf at John Eagle Honda $18 with tax.

Here's some pictures:
