Ok the Gsx was tempting but I'm back on board with the foci. Talking to Tom right now about the tune.

good to hear. I'll be ordering my sct tuner and maybe injectors this week. I talked to someone with the ms3 manifold+turbo on their 2.5 mazda 3 and they said everything fit only the downpipe was just a tad too long so they just had it cut.

Figured it would. Hope it works out for you. Looking like I'll be finished up sometime around the first week of July. I'll start the build thread around then and take lots of pics. And will make sure to post a link to it on the first post.

Do it to it man. I'm just ready to get this thing going. I was planning on waiting until September but was able to work some things out so I can get it done early. Hopefully.

Alright doing some test fitting right now for the manifold and turbo should be finishing up soon. I'm just working on getting the stock exhaust manifold out of the way and will post some pics later today.

ok will do just have to take the manifold off but here is some pics of just the manifold installed and some with the turbo+manifold. Turbo is a lot bigger than I expected in there. A little snug in there but should be fine. The part I was most excited about was with this manifold the exhaust side for the turbo is below the alternator. So downpipe will be really easy to do. The intake for the turbo though is gonna be tricky. Gonna have to adjust some things. Well here you go:

Looking good. I like that manifold.

You should probably start a build thread or have this one re-titled. :)
