Just thought you might like to see the turbo system I built.

Here's the setup

Turbonetics T3 super 60 water-cooled
Tial 38mm wastegate (5 lb spring)
FMIC 18 x 6.5 x 3.5 bar and plate
Homemade log manifold
2.25 charge tubing
2.5 downpipe
2.25 flex pipe
2.25 full exhaust - 2.5" with Flowmaster later today

Did all of the fabricating and welding myself.

Thats a pretty exhaust manifold you have made. I can just imagine the amount of time invested to where anything I may have to say may seem under appreciated.

Building something like that is a huge task, how long did it take you?

Thank you for the very kind words. I have been working on it a little at a time for 2 years now. Buying part along the way. I built an equal length manifold first but it put the turbo to low.

Wow, that's awesome man. I bet that system is soo satisfying to see working.

I think I'd prefer making one myself and having 5 to 10 hp less than a prefab one, and having the experience of learning everything from the project.
