Love the new downpipe! Didn't mess with the afr's by much. So much more free flow. Last one was restricting. Noticed a difference in spool right off the bat. Next on the list is fabricating the charge piping. Gonna eliminate all of these couplers and make it one piece. Things are slowing down until this summer. I'll post up any additional parts I get.

What are you using for tuning? SCT? Who/where would you recommend having it properly calibrated? I'm in the middle of a very lengthy build similar to this, and the biggest question I have left is tuning. Also, with your external wastegate, is it a problem for your O2 sensors to just dump excess to atmosphere BEFORE it's read? My manifold is similar, but top mount turbo, and I'm concerned about O2 sensor placement. Any insight is appreciated!

Hey, not too sure on the o2 sensor, I'm sure it all depends on your tuner. I am using sct for tuning. I have a guy, Tony Gonyon from Tuners Inc., here locally and he did a great job with my current setup. I really like this manifold. I was looking around at the topmount setup but really like the placement. Can't wait to start test fitting everything here pretty soon. Good luck on your build.

Build has come to a halt for right now. Stuff came up unexpectedly and just have to wait a little longer. I'll keep everyone posted. Should be able to do more end of June. If anything changes I'll post it up.

As far as I can tell they are. Since you have them apart, make sure everything lines up. Post up some pics if you can. Remember to seal the one oil port on the bottom left if you are going to use it. And do the vct delete. Good luck with it. Until my wife finds a new job, my build is on hold.

I was fortunate to have all parts on hand then got laid off to do my build. Got it done faster than expected. Not everyone gets that luxury though

It sucks, but it will get done eventually. My setup is still running strong so I'm ok with it.
