Sooo, I bought that manifold. And it's big... So big that I'm lacking 45mm to clear the hood... I'm looking into how I can modifi it to work. Will be working on the car tonight so hopefully I can give you some updates soon

Here is what we got done last night, I feel like we did alot. Atleast something happend


My friend welded on the bracket that we made, preatty awkward that his welds are better than the ebay ones on the IC lol





We finished removing the battery seat thingy





Then we cut out for the piping to enter the engine bay


















Edit: some of the last pics are sideways because I took them through snapchat because my phone was dying on me (wouldnt let me use the camera)

My friend was just talking about eBay turbos. He said that they're decent, but if you want them to last longer than a year then you should take them apart and have the shaft balanced.

And nice work on the manifold. I wish I knew how to weld.

Yeah thats what I've heard to, people have advised me to get legit shafts and then I should be good. But I'll probably run it as it is and see

Wish I could weld too :/ I can fix exhausts and other minor things but I can't weld nothing so it will look good, and definetaly not aluminium. My friend who does the welding and is helping me with this is really good tho
