Also i was reading one of the threads that it is possible to place a turbo behind the 421 headers. So is the a side effect?

no you dont want your turbo after a race header. You will want some sort of dedicated turbo manifold. The best thing to use for the charge piping is 2'' mandrel u bends from turbo-intercooler and 2.5'' mandrel u bends from intercooler-throttle body

Cool thx man, I was reading some of the threads about the piping, some said go with 3" and some say go with 2.25 and 2.5. I figure 3" is for the bigger turbo set ups, and one said use steel piping. Is it better to use alum or stainless steel????
