So my fuel pumps are working. THey flow enough fuel to uh flow a shitload of fuel. I primed them bitches and pumped like half a gallon in 3 seconds. Good enough.

Um I am waiting for my oil feed adapter. This bigass borg turbo takes a fruking 1/2" NPT adapter. After that, I think I will be ready to start it up.

Oh so I took a good look at my old manifold and exhaust today. The BEGI S5 mani is cracked at the welds between the cast iron and the wastegate area. The wastegate area is steel and I was told that's why it cracked. It wasn't leaking, but it needs to be repaired so I guess I will send it to BEGI. Into the void.

My enthuza exhaust hangers had broken off in two places. I had a big quarter sized hole where it ripped off on the midpipe thing, and another hole where it ripped off on the muffler. I blame that on having a downpipe with no flex section. No, one slip joint did not offer enough movement. AND I have to also mention that my vigorous flat shift fireballs and launch control fireballs etc may have had something to do with the destruction of my exhaust. Oh well. Everything dies someday.

These holes also explain why shuiend's identical enthuza exhaust was SIGNIFICANTLY quieter than mine.

Oh BTW here are some pics of my 4" yes four inch exhaust. 3.5" Downpipe is big. This is huge.









Comes out at a nice jaunty ricery angle. I figure I should have enough "**** you" power to back up the ostentatiousness.

4" after a 3.5" downpipe doesn't make much sense to me, but whatev. Looks badass. What muffler are you running? I can see it's relatively tiny. I'm considering a 4" piece on my V6 build if I can find a big enough muffler and a 4" flex.

Not much at all. I will take a head on pic later.

It's just some Invidia canister exhaust. It shouldn't rust at all, like the magnaflow "stainless" muffler did. I could fit my whole arm through the exhaust.

I was going to paint the tip black, but I'll just let the fire do it for me.

Looks like it goes to 4 inch right after the flex? Who built the exhaust? Pretty good routing job, what are you going to do to make sure it never rattles against those braces? Those tungstens are 1/4 inch of clearance at best. Urethane hangers?

He can just space the braces with some washers to get some more clearance.

You don't seem to understand, he has a solution for whatever is hitting the hood.

Interested in lift and garage setup? is this your place or some shop? Looks pretty fancy. Lol makes me feel better about my 3" DP and the tight clearance I'm running. ~.25" in some places id say.

Actually my work ends at the DP. My jig car is a 99 and doesn't have all the bracing his does. Being such a tight fit, I didn't want to risk it. I'm glad I did, too - I hate doing pie cuts.

Fae, curious, how much did that exhaust run?
