Well....
finished the manifold right on time for Wicked Big meet this year. Still have a lot left to finish on the car including FMIC + piping, fuel rail brackets and a ton of wiring.
Couple pics of the manifold. Still gotta make the exhaust/WG piping. Since this is a drag car, the exhaust is coming out the side of the front bumper. Who needs an exhaust anyways. lol

Its different but couldn't you have made the exhaust inlet down a little more to fit a full radiator in, or would it have been too tight?

Looks great either way.

If the turbo would have sat down any lower, I would have to install a scavenge pump. That is the last thing I wanted to do.

The half radiator is all I need. Afterall, this is purely a drag car. So it only has to cool the engine for a 1/4 mile then it'll be able to cool down for a while before the next run. No point in running a full radiator. Plus it would not clear the manifold correctly.

Ah if its just a drag car I completely understand then. No reason for a big radiator.

Yeh. Killerbmotorsports' lowmount is the way to go. My kit requires you to tube the front of the car. KBs kit uses the stock chassis.

I'd like to see photos of the oil return line setup that allowed you to not use a pump. Nice work.

Do you really NOT have a screen on the turbo or (i'm hoping) did you remove it for cool points on the pic? Pretty risky for all that work you've put into it.

Yup. I'm Puting a mesh on when I drive it.

The exhaust is coming out the pass side of the front bumper. No way street legal anymore. Dedicated drag only now.

I'm just curious how the engine will sound with the exhaust pulse of the parallel unequal lengths.

Nice work, no flex sections or slip joints? Is there a support for the turbo?

Wish I was turbo savvy enough to even begin help answer your question. Hopefully someone from like say P&L may be able to chime in.
