Well guys i sold my old setup and got something new i like this new setup better then my old one (personaly). its the SPA manifold With a Comp turbo with the v band housing[headbang] this setup will have a full 3in stainless downpipe and the whole downpipe and flexpipe will be all v band clamps [hihi]. so far i have shaved the SPA manifold so it will be a nice smooth finish for the ceramic coating. ill keep this thread updated ill be getting the turbo monday or tuesday and i will be sanding the compressor housing down and polishing it. also ill be moving my maf tube to where the straight part of the pipe in the pic is. and i have made a new pcv plate with me plasma cutter :)

ceramic coating is a must for that manifold. It will rust and not look good. Who r you going to send it to? Good luck with this time around.

Seems like the only choice out there is the SPA manifold unless you have a custom one made.

It should look great coated and polished, I will look forward to more pics.

Good Luck!

Hey Roushturbo, can you give me the guy's info who coats your stuff?

What's the difference in the numbers? Is it the temperature to which the paint can withstand?

I'm glad your getting your new turbo so quickly! Were you just not happy with the gtk-450? That thing was friggin huge!

When is the tuning date tentatively scheduled?
