      true I am def not trying to rush it .. when the transmission gets back, toss that on, toss the engine in the bay and start throwing parts on .. HOPING everything fits nicely

      I think we all need to agree that once you are this deep it never stops. I started out looking to fix some paint chips.... Four years later, yeah.

      this thread hasnt been updated in forever .. wanna know why?






      cause nothing has happened .. hah

      so after checking out a few turbo bays at h2o .. I noticed in barrys bay he has his turbo cocked down like I have mine mocked at the moment, however his charge piping goes down his driver side along the other one (because his fmic has both inlets on the same side.) mine has to go down the passenger side .. but looking at barrys fitment .. its tight there .. im not sure it can be done especially with the wastegate and downpipe going down there .. SO .. i was thinking about a spacer?



      thats how its mocked at the moment, because with it cocked up, the S cover hits the exhaust manifold but maybe THIS could fix that ..



      does anyone else thing this is sketchy? or is it a plausible idea?

      Idk mitch when i had that set up i had no room it was an inch off my firewall, with that spacer you might hit the rain tray or be up against the firewall

      need to put the engine in the bay to figure that out. an easy way in case you havent fabricated the down pipe is flip the turbo and run it like this

      keep in mind guys im running the c2 ram horn exhaust manifold not the log style like those

      i already thought about the idea of flipping em backwards .. but then my downpipe would most likely need to be custom fabbed up

      i just ordered a t4 flange .. extended studs .. and a big yellow tial spring .. i had a 4psi and a 14.5 psi spring .. i need a 10 then run off the mbc a lil higher..

      10 psi WG spring



      t4 flange im going to weld to the exhaust manifold so it sits higher and i can run the charge piping up top vs down low ..

      so i did a test fit on seeing if the "spacer" would help

      when i looked at it I was like theres no way this is going to fit what was i thinking

      but it clears .. by millimeters .. which might be sketchy



      elbow coupler will obviously not remain that ridiculous size .. prob cut 4" off each end

      nice, it looks like you need to bolt everything in there in the right sequence otherwise some bolts might not be able to be bolted in there
