Maybe. I really like the one you got. Don't get me wrong, I love the one I have but want to see how well that one looks. Mine puts it the turbo right past the alternator which I really like. But with yours, I could probably buy a fswerks downpipe. Or buy a Mazda one and switch the flange. And if I decide to switch the turbo later on, I have the option to go with an external wastegate. I'll decide once I see your pics and fitment.

Awesome sounds good. Hate to ask but can you mount the turbo both ways so I can get an idea of how it would look? If its not too much trouble, if appreciate it a lot. No piping needed just turbo.

A little update. I went ahead and installed the intake manifold. Not gonna lie, was a bitch to install. Advice for those wanting to do it, drop the fan down and it helps to remove the power steering pump Res. Bottom bolts were a pain to get to. But I got it done and also went ahead and did the pcv delete like sporadic did. I was just mocking up some piping and decided just to go for it. There is a PDF out there with instructions on how to do the install from cosworth. Not really sure the stipulations on that so if you are interested, pm me and I'll send it to you if you want. I start classes again tomorrow so busy week ahead but plan on mounting the intercooler so when the time comes just bolt it up. So far everything looks like it will fit perfectly. Will find out if I have to tweek the hotside or not. Will keep you posted. Also, I'll post some pics of the manifold.

Looking good. I hope to have my manifold complete tonight, along with 60# injectors and the meth injection system. I'm impressed you were able to still use that power steering reservoir. I see you trimmed a tab, but I would have sworn it wouldn't fit at all. Was your IM modified?

I bought it already modified from koke'sfocus. Another thing to keep in mind is the sensor going into the line running from the bottom of the power steering pump. When you get it cut, take that into consideration. Mine wasn't cut enough and caused some problems. Nothing I wasn't able to work around. I did cut the tab because it was pushing against the Mani. But I really like it. Gives the engine a good sound to it. Definitely looking forward to getting the rest put on and see what it can do.
