Does the turbo fit well on the manifold? I mean does the manifold transition well into the turbine housing?



Go put all the goods on the car then post a pic

I'm waiting for my V-band kit to show up before I throw it in the car.I think I might wait till the is running on the stocker turbo before I swap over.

Wow, that fills up the area! It sure hangs down a bit too much though. You'll probably hit it on something down the line and ruin your day. I'd hate to hear a "I busted the bottom of my intercooler off today" thread. Why did you use those big red straps to hold it in there? They block a lot of airflow. Could you mount it in there at more of a angle so it woulden't be so low to the ground? Anyways, it should keep the air cool either way

Here is a old pic of how I mounted mine. Please excuse the dirty car It was just short enough to not go any lower than the front crosmember.
