Very impressive of your custom works, consider doing another sets of your complete turbo piping?

I use a 110 mig welder for the stainless to tack the pipes in place then I take it to work and tig weld it. For the aluminum I cut the pipes to the right length and mark both pipes with a line and a letter then I take it to work and tig weld the pipes together matching up the lines and letters. I wish I could run a tig welder at home but the garage and house is to old so I cant power a tig welder. I always say "why buy it if I can make it". I also saved a lot of money making it myself. Why be like everyone else when you can always be one of a kind.

Loving the build, the fact that you're doing all the work yourself makes it 100x better. Car is pulling hard too, must be nice

It's been awhile since I've updated but I finally got my head back from kmod. Stage 1 port with a match ported RBC and it took 7 months for them to finish. Never sending my stuff there again. Anyways I can't wait for spring. Hope to be in the 500HP range.

Did you install the turbo manifold with the motor? Or the motor install then turbo manifold? Cause those exhaust manifold bolts look like a bitch to get to with the motor installed in the car

I installed the motor first then installed the manifold afterwards. It is a pain but when you do it so many times it's not that hard.
