Oh, I see what you were getting at, Jim. Thought he would keep the turbine on the same side as 99% of people. A downpipe shouldn't be a problem if you're going to rip a lot of crap out of the front (well, already have).

edit: Just realized you posted pics of how you were mounting the turbo in the beginning of the thread. Pay attention, Jim!

Because he ditched the A/C, he can move the radiator a couple inches forward and he can also notch part of the car if necessary.
