After fiddling with the V-bands on the FM2R EWG stuff, I've come to the conclusion that V-bands are awesome when you have lots of clearance around the pipes, and atrocious when you don't.

I feel like having 3 hands would make them 10 times easier.

Yeah I'm switching to using aligning ones on the next exhaust. Or when they're not available, sticking the pipe on one side into the other side to use the pipe to align.

Thanks, it was easier.

I'll build a big mt.net muffler setup out the right at some point. There is a v-band right before the axle that I can swap out with.

I might even be able to get a decent deal on it.

Either the 7070 or 7670.
I have a S200 for sale. It's a proper turbo and with or without it should hit 400hp depending on which inducer is on yours.

Yes even new they are cheap as ****. Yes the spool slower than EFR what do you epect for like 1/3rd the price. I think you can get them with billet wheels now too.

I would run one over a garrett any day

speaking of which i have a 3071 for sale too

Which s200, talk to me.

I still think it's too big. Hx30 is the current plan.
