If you want, bolt the manifold to the turbo and then the downpipe put a few bolts in and take it to a shop and have them weld the flange together. Like have them match it up while its all bolted together but not on your car, so you will save time on the day of the install.

Seems like a tough weld while on the car,
Good luck man.

I think you are confused. I don't have the OBX setup. When I said "I already have all my parts," I meant I already have my setup. I have Top Speed manifold and downpipe.

Why do you need J&S? Doesn't look like you have an SVT. Also, unless you are going for over 400whp, you don't need the KB BAP.

Ahhh, sad times. Yeah, the J&S ain't cheap. Easy to install, though.
