Our charge pipe is 2.5" and has a tight radius 90* silicone elbow off the turbo. It sits significantly higher than a hpf kit due to the smaller diameter and a tighter fit to the subframe. My car has had no problems for thousands of miles. No need to remove ac or change things.

A little progress pictures from Friday:

The Southbend Stage 3 endurance clutch arrived:







We put that in:



Buttoned up the Transmission and driveline.

Got the turbo, downpipe, wastegate tube, and wastage mounted:



We also installed the fuel pump, installed the injectors, ran the turbo and drain line, sorted the ICV system, etc....

So how does this clutch compare with the Stage 3 that HPF sells? I know they're both southbend clutches but never heard of an endurance version...is it Ferramic?

Where does the downpipe mate to the stock exhaust?

The downpipe will have a slip fit shortly after the wastegate tie in. This will allow for a modular section for those that want either the catted version or the non catted version. From this non catted or catted section it will then tie into the section two of the stock exhaust.

We are doing something a little custom for Dexter. He requested a 3" back to his supersprint muffler.

We will also be offering a full three inch exhaust with vibrant flow through mufflers. This should flow the best out of the options.

Thanks! In Europe, the cats are located in the exhaust section after the headers. Is it possible for us to go with the non catted vesion and leave the stock cats?

Great location for the wastegate. I like the vband clamps (no gaskets to worry about) for easy of removal, specially from the manifold to the exhaust pipe, connecting to the wastegate.

No flex section on the downpipe or wg pipe. You can see a slip fit on the wg tube for alignment purposes, although the clamp isn't pictured. All of our e36 systems were made this way.
