I want to start by saying everyones set up is quite nice. I was wondering if any work have to be done to the intake manifold or can it just be flipped?

From what I hear, it fits both ways. The creativity comes when trying to make room for the throttle body. You can lower the alternator, or ditch the A/C and move the alternator to that location, or raise the intake manifold.

Not cloe enough to even force into place.

Plan B

Broke out this baby and my Craftsman rotary tool and extended the tensioner slot to access the threaded hole in the Alt when it was at its lowest posible point with the screw out.


I tried to put the pulley on and was just able to force the pulley over the first 2 threads of the shaft by hand power. Then I used a block of wood and a hammer to put it all the way on. Needless to say, there wasn't much tensioning that had to be done. The Alt can be absolutely no lower. Now I ust have to actually reverse the manifold and see if I have the same luck as Joker13, and not need spacers. I have and STi, so the TB may fit differently.
OK, I'm in the thick of this right now. One trick I found was to remove one of the alternator case screws temporarily. This allows you to drop the altenator down below where the screw slot permits. I'm hoping that this will aid in fitting the belt. Then pull up on the altenator to slip the case screw back in--I'll report back to see if this permits install of the belt without removing the altenator pulley or perhaps makes it easier to re-install the pulley if it is removed.

Taking the case screw out drops the altenator about another 1/4-1/2 of a inch.

My favorite is member Alan G's set up below. Very short intercooler piping for responsiveness.



I ordered the 34 inch and a 34.5 inch Gatorback 5 rib belts. We'll see if the screw trick does the trick. I'm still worried about tensioning the belt and hitting the throttle body, but there's always spacer work between the TVG/manifold to fix that.

I left it with Lateral Performance to find out if their rad-IC combo would fit the GDB compartment. I'll write to Mark again and ask if he's tried installing one yet.

I've also seen a set up like Alan's that instead of running under the manifold it runs over it (no coolant reservoir).

I need to post a pick of my car. It's about 1/2 of Alan's set up. I lost about 3 feet of tubing.

That is pretty crazy stuff. You have a ton of stones to try a 6cyl swap.

wgknestrick-haha, yea I am a bit crazy or so I am told

peebles-you are almost correct, it is a H6 EZ30R getting ready for boost


one thing I am curious about, how did people move their Alternators over to the one side? Do you have a custom bracket made for the far right hand side(looking at motor) or how is it secured? It doesnt look like my H6 accessories will do that but maybe I can use an EJ setup So i dont need to offset the TB.

Any info on that would be awesome, thanks!

I have a thread in AFI now for a picture request of people running reverse manifolds on the GC platform.

If you guys have any, or know of anyone who has done this please let me know, or post in the AFI thread.

Thanks

So are people saying that you ABSOLUTELY cannot reverse the STi manifold without removing A/C and flipping the alternator over, or can it be done going over the alternator with it lowered?

I have seen it done but I think that was on wrx setups and not STi's.

thanks for the Help!

one other thing, the bolt spacing appears to be symmetrical for the manifold, can you not just take off the manifold and leave the TGV's in place and flip it and not have to deal with the fuel or injectors at all?

Sorry don't have a STi to look at trying to gather info for someone else I will be helping do this.

thanks.

^^You can do it without removing the AC. Some people have done it. I just chose to remove it due to weight savings.

Also, yes, you just remove the manifold. The TGV's stay where they are at. You will have to mess with the fuel lines and engine harness though as they are bolted to the underside in the manifold.
