Definitely keep me posted about that manifold. If I would have found that before I bought mine I would have jumped all over it. Still might.lol
Send me pics of your ic piping, I'm gonna mock mine up later this week and I'll post some pics on here.

Everything will be welded once I know everything is fitting good and works.
Hey sporadic, how do you like the boost vacuum manifold? What did you tap into for your man source? Tried finding a diagram but no such luck. Thanks for any help you can give me.

I'm glad I went with the vac block setup.
I removed the evap system and used the port on the front of the intake manifold that it used to connect to. A 3/8" heater hose works perfect for connecting to it.

Glad to see youre still plugging away. Mine's on the back burner for a while now. I got three turbos sitting on my shelf at work just glaring at me in disdain every day, and I trip over the manifold in my bedroom each morning.

Just a little reminder to myself I suppose

Thanks man! Trust me, I know how you feel staring at turbos and tripping over parts.lol
I'm hoping I can get everything done this time. I'll at least have all of the major stuff taken care off and might just need random fittings and what not. November, at the latest, is what I'm shooting for. I'm ordering some stuff on the first then the rest in the beginning of October. So it will just be the waiting game for stuff to come in and getting the downpipe made somewhere. Fingers crossed.

That is what I'm looking at doing. I have all the flanges still need two o2 bungs. If I can't find a shop that's not gonna cut my head off on the price, that is the route I will go. When I put everything on to test fit, I'll check for clearance issues and how best to run it. Waiting on pics of your manifold before I decide on getting one made. My manifold puts it down about 6-7" than the old one. Decisions, decisions.
