      Fairfield. I've spoken with you before at dubs on defrost. I was running around looking for a 24v coilpack.

      my buddy tom seems to think hes got a few tricks up his sleeve

      were gonna try and route the charge piping off the turbo outlet hidden underneath the turbo due to the fact that the turbo housing is too big for this exhaust manifold and the turbo cant be cocked upwards

      if it works ill be very happy .. not only will i be the only one with a setup like that as i know of .. but it will look SUPER clean and thats what catches peoples eyes for a double take
