The wastegate pipe angle looks like it might have a tiny bit of creep, but I'm sure that it has so much wastegate, and it's not like that angle is that bad anyway. Your work has only gotten more impressive.

I heart the high-sitting bottom-mount. Great drain characteristics. I wonder if that angle will create any oil drain/seal challenges on the exhaust side, doubt it though.

In for motormount. and wg tie-ins or dumps
I love this manifold, I've been starting at pics of it since I left the shop. I can't explain what I think about it, can't believe I made it honestly. I just got rolling with fab work not so long ago it seems. I put everything I have into each and every one of these setups. I build them as if they were my own, and if I had to look at them everyday, hopefully they fill the shoes of the owner and they love them as much as I do! I appreciate your comments, gotta get up your way again sometime soon! Take care, hope the car is running well!

You don't have to argue with me about top mounts, it's a win win regardless. I've stared at this turbo and engine bay for over a month now while we were waiting for other pieces to arrive to get started. The back housing, 1.06, is gigantic on this thing, even though 35R. It's big in the wrong place. Fitting the hotside crams the compressor up against the rad support, and the headlight is right there with no room around it for pipes. I would have loved for it to be up top. This is the best compromise though honestly. It's still very visible, as well as the manifold. On a top mount setup like the one in my Z3M, the downpipe blocks the whole manifold, so it's a different look for sure. This is also my first bottom mount setup I've done EVER! Me =

Should have no oil drain issues as it is a very very high bottom mount, will fit a full 4' intake as well placing a filter in front of the shock tower, a/c compressor isn't even near, some custom a/c lines and the car will be bling under the hood, beastly in power and spool, and have all the likings of a stock car

Want some top mount love, check this out, just finished this up last week, I'll have a thread for it up very soon as well



Thank you everyone for your comments, I greatly appreciate each and every one!

Naw, I was talking about behind the strut actually, wanted to see one there, you could fit 2 turbos there, haha. The hardest part would be room to get the exhaust back down, but definitely doable.

Doable and wise two very different things. I crammed my 74mm on the top in my car, way less space. Was it the wisest choice, definitely not, was it doable, everyone told me it wasn't. I'd say it worked. I'd love to see a turbo back there, let's see it

big power. instaboost. This thing will probably spool kunder 3krpm. Clearly, you're cheating.


EDIT: just read exhaust plans..ok... you could go 4", this is ready and imo waiting for a shawn can.

PRI?

EDIT:

wut is going on with those strut towers!?

The angle of the turbo makes everything much everything pretty smooth. Only tight connection to the turbo is going to be the turbo outlet, but with a welded 90* on the compressor, there should be no problems!

I would love to put a 4" turbo back single sided exhaust on it, not what the customer wants though. I think I'm the only one odd enough to do that

I'll be at PRI today, and the strut towers on the M3 were flattened a little to fit the vents of the VIS carbon fiber hood, havent gotten a chance to add some filler and paint lol

We are building our own fuel setup for this car as it will be using E85!

More details to come, fuel pumps and injectors are listed in the original post!

Thanks!

Sorry for the lack of updates, been a busy two weeks at the shop. Did get a chance this week to spend about 15 hours welding up the manifold







Welded in and out







Some more of the bling

















Still a big pile of materials!
