Cutting up the front end

is that exhaust going to exit out the bumper?

I also wanted to hit you up for some details on how you did your 5x114 spindles. I'll have to send you a pm.

Still trying to figure out where I want the exhaust. Possibly out of the hood.

I had a machine shop weld and redrill the spindles to specs of the 02 fitment. Let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks! Yeah I had the idea in my head for a long long time. I finally got enough funds to start the project back up. I loved the Evo front facing setups and wanted to do something similar on mine.

Here are some more specs on motor

EJ257
Darton Sleeves
Pauter Rods
CP Pistons
Ported Heads
Oversized valves
Kelford 282s

The turbo is a 6765bb

I really like what you have done so far with this build. The car looks like a beast, and I'm a fan of the front mount.

Are you concerned about the hot side of that snail melting the timing cover?

Planing on coating headers, including the hotside, I'm also buying a turbo blanket

I assumed so, let me know how welding the water pipe and pump elbow go. I'm assuming it won't be too fun.
