    so lets get this right, the downpipe is doubling back underneath the PS header and above the rail I'm guessing? The air filter is in the fender and the compressor outlet will go through the wheel well to a front mount? ****ty that the TB feed is also on the PS. Is the other end of the intercooler going to be on top or on the DS of the car then a big long pipe to get back to the TB?

    Man you're exhaust mount solution might have been nice on this car too lol

    Hehe someone's finally comprehending how complex this packaging is lol and ya you got almost everything right except you forgot the wastgate dump tube will be running parallel/above the manifold and down beside the trans. I'll be flipping the intake so the inlet is on the drivers side so at least that will be relatively easy

    you should have just twin turbo'd it steve, would have been less complex.

    hehe twin turbo'ing would've meant i would have to do all this twice! lol but ya twin turbo'ing wasnt really an option due to the steering rack/column conversion and having no room on the drivers side to snake a downpipe through.

    Besides in a year or so when this becomes too slow i can just buy a second turbo (twins good for 1350whp) and exhaust them straight up through the hood like a pair of zoomies!

    hot hot alternator. Can you mount that elsewhere or will it just have lots of shielding.

    There's a little over an inch of clearance f the alternator which already has a factory heatshield, will have to keep an eye on it tho

    oh cool, that will make it much neater and shorter pipes.

    Like I said, polished ceramic on the exhaust bits will make a huge difference.

    Whats the radiator plan? Its kinda tempting to do a trunk mount in this situation for clearance, weight balance and better airflow\cooling in the engine bay and for the intercooler. These cars pretty much just end after the front rad support.

    PS: not sure if you noticed but I posted this message a day ago but acidently hit Edit instead of Quote on the post I'm quoting now lol. All fixed up.

    Pretty much finished up all the exhaust side of things now, waiting for a 3" v-band to join exhaust to the downpipe, for now i'll be using the stock rad as its of a decent size and currently I don't have the $700 for a full custom one lol.


    Downpipe finished


    wastegate/screamer pipe on


    A view of the maze of pipes (dont worry the welds on that lower crossover pipe are just as pretty as all the rest, just havent hit them with the wire wheel yet)

    The GZE alt. is about an inch away from the header and it seems to behave alright

    if i had an unlimited budget it would be done in a couple months but i'll have to settle for running/driving in a few weeks possibly. All depends on how busy my work schedule is

    I think you should leave the stock rear end in this thing for first drive, see how long it lasts with your driving style. when it blows up I want to see exploded ring gear, snapped axle shaft an a ripped in half axle housing. YOU CAN DO IT STEVE! I BELIEVE!

    Going to try a 92-00 civic aluminum 3 core racing radiator, it's like 13"x16.5" should free up some space in the engine bay, was only like $169
