      That way I can run the 'angry' gates when I have a bad day at work/school

      i doubt many have done or heard, but open gate on a B series Honda when it hits VTEC is kind of fun to hear...

      My brother actually builds and sells Honda turbo kits (B/D/K series). I've had a little experience with them I guess you could say

      I'm really not sure where the gates will be plumbed to for now, I'm more worried about making boost then where to put the excess

      Lee, why did you make the inlet bells equal length? Read up on foffa's thread about cam pulsing. I guess we'll see later this year which getup works better. We both have tubular equal length turbo manifolds, basically the same engine/turbo, you have equal length inlets, I don't.

      Robert, give me some credit here.

      If I were going to make an equal length runner manifold, I would have been done long ago. I was trying to find a way to unequalize the runner lengths while avoiding a simple side entry plenum where some cylinders protrude an extra 3.5" into the plenum like here. No offense to the fabricator here, but I think staggering the runner length is at the expense of flow and air distribution.

      Maybe this next picture will make my intents more clear. I relocated the alternator to the AC compressor location and I have the 2/4/6 runners located lower in the plenum than 1/3/5. The length of the runner and the bend up and over into the runner, plus a slight extra protrusion into the port should leave me with ~5" short runners and ~8-8.5" long runners (including the length of the bend).

      As you can see, it is just mocked up right now. BTW, instead of just listening to foffa preach, I just decided to derive the runner length equation for resonance myself

      Lol, yeah. If you noticed, I recently sold my stock fans/fan shroud. The two crankcase breathers is because I like to practice excess.

      I realize that my previous pictures leave a bit of room for confusion, maybe this will clear things up a bit

      Got a pic of how you did it? The stacks are from Velocity of Sound. The quality and pricing is pretty good, but unfortunately they are in Australia.

      One question.

      Does your exhaust hit your side skirts?

      Love the look and have been contemplating it for years, just hesitant about ruining my paint.

      I think you might be confusing me with somebody else... because

      a) I don't have sideskirts
      b) I haven't built my exhaust yet

      As for the oil cooler, I got it from boosteddubs. It's the big Mocal cooler (16 row maybe?) with a temperature sensitive sandwich plate.

      Thanks for all the comments guy
