    haha already been past that stage, theres nights when i loko at it and go "what the hell am i doing" lol. its hard building everything from scratch, everything ive bought hasnt fit and ive had to modify it, but im sure the outcome will be so so good. thanks mate!

    great news all, turbos are on finally! ill put pics up tonight, manifolds are done and turbos sit nice and snug, look really good. ive done this setup while keeping EVERYTHING in its stock location, hance why it was taking so long. the alternator, coil packs, abs unit and cruise control didnt have to move, so its a great design if things want to be kept in there origional spot.

    pics to come!

    couple of questions

    Your missing 1 dump pipe?

    Is that stainless pipe welded onto mild steel manifolds? what stainless (if it is) did you use?

    Wouldnt one side spool faster than the other? It being at different lengths away?
    Looks good though.

    im missing 1 dump because i havnt finished making it yet lol....as you can see theres a bit of fiddling to be done to get it through all of the things in the way.

    both the manifold and what ive put on are stainless.

    the length of the pipes is very minimal, it just looks longer because its in the corner, the spool difference would be that small it wouldnt matter

    even if there was even 50cm difference in length, the pressure difference would be marginal at best, and the exhaust pulses are all going to be hitting the turbine at the same frequency and same pressure so differences in spool times?? what difference...

    and matt, i thought you were going to try n mirror them? it looks a bit unusual having them in different spots..

    Looks good always going to be diffcult to fit turbos without removing/moving stuff in bay. What stainless did you use? are the dumps 2.5? you reckon theres enough room down drivers side for 3 inch?

    What stainless did you use for the manifolds?

    Not nitpicking or having a dig i'm genuinely interested been following this thread for long time as you'd know. Check my thread out in projects if you havent already
