      im going to try and make this up n running as fast as possible, thats why i wanna have EVERY part before i loosen the first bolt

      I am going to be using oem headstuds .. i havent heard any real good reviews about any aftermarket ones for the R yet .. and its going to be 3"dp to 2.5" side exit at first .. just to wake the dead .. then ill make a custom 3" all the way back .. turn downs and a euro R rear bumper with no cutouts

      would be a good time to replace all the vac lines with silicone lines. http://www.frozenboost.com/
      they may have other parts you may want also. Cheers

      Any special reason for the anti surge housing? Could've gone for an E compressor cover which would make packaging, and installation alot simpler. The C2 ramhorn and turbo inlet/intake combo is designed to use an E cover, which allows the inlet pipe to bolt to a supplied bracket (photo below) allowing it to be secured in the bay and out of the way. I mean there's no real need for that housing on a VR6 anyway, you'll lose a bit of spool with it too.

      You can even retain the OEM heat shield, which makes a world of difference in fighting the heat these things put out as well.

      I have my pipes wrapped, manifolds covered, and turbo blanketed and it's still crazy!

      Awesome build though! I'm in CT as of September to finish my college career, so I'm definitely looking forward to taking the roads by storm with another Turbo VR Where in the 203 are you?
