Well reversing your manifold will not reduce lag. So maybe you need to look into other things to help you with that.

wow, thats really not even a measurable differance, not even 500 rpms is worth spending a grand for or 1000 rpms imo. Start looking into gear sets if you want omfg spool.

A grand? That is crazy. I probably have about $30-40 wrapped up in it. I cut off 43 inches of intercooler piping reversing my manifold and rotating my turbo.

Got my throttle body spacer back from waterjet today. I ended up having five made. If anyone wants one of the extras, let me know and we can work something out. (update: sold them all, if you still want one, let me know, maybe I'll have a few more made)

Not a problem. I've had so many requests for more I might just have to make a few. If you're interested, shoot me a PM and I'll put you on the list for another batch if I make one.

Here's an updated picture of mine, after getting it back together.






The intercooler is tucked way back in there. There is also a duct in the bumper opening that directs any and all air to/through the intercooler and radiator.

Yes. I don't autocross and it wasn't quite built for turning, if that's what you're getting at

The radiator may be smaller than the OEM piece, but works fine keeping the car cool.

Looks nice! Didn't you have your fuse box in your fender before? Maybe I'm confusing you with someone else.

Thanks,and nope, I wont move it there. I dont want to have to take the car apart to check a fuse or have a tire take out half my electrical system if it blows. Works great for show guys though. Whenever I cage the car and reloom it I may move all the fuses to the glove box.

Haha, there are relatively easy solutions to both of those, but it's a fair concern and valid reason to leave it be.

If I had a buttload of money, I would do a reverse manifold, and a turbo relocation using the current LGT turbo location and a front-mount intercooler. That much reduced ducting and having the turbo close to the exhaust outlet would be total win.

Looks great, what 20g is that? Looks like a TBO but I'm prolly wrong.

That intake manifold is pretty snazzy too.

Did you custom make the rotated up pipe or have it made?

I've actually got quite a few questions if you don't mind.
Prolly should have just pm'd you
