No, you can't use those on divided manifolds ;-)

7064 should spool pretty quick though, at least faster then my last turbo so I am not too worried.

You're thinking of the wrong thread. I'm using the qsv. For qsv you need undivided manifold + divided turbine housing. This thread is about divided manifold + divided turbine housing. Cost aside, both approaches should = win over undivided everything.

Big *** fuel filter :-)

My fuel filter and stainless filter 40 micron for E85 came in finally, the -8AN line and fitting as well as injectors should be here by the end of the week. Borgwarner is still backed up on making these turbos, it sucks when you pay for something over 6 weeks ago and they still don't have an answer :-( on ETA, Abe is waiting on this turbo so he can finish my manifold!!!!

Okay, a quick update...My budget sort of just went into 'unlimited' status. My EFR should be here in 2 days, and I will update with a lot of pictures, my fuel system and injectors are here.

Once I deploy the following are happening:
FM 8.8 Ford Rear-end stage 2
Billet Mains
L19 Headstuds (maybe)
ARP custom age rod bolts (due to one of my rod bolts snapping during tq)
10.5:1 Custom Wiescos (maybe)
Clutch..not sure which one..
6 speed trans

I got sick of waiting for this damn EFR and they told me they had a 7670 in stock with no wastegate T4 Twin Scroll 1.04 A/R, so I said screw it and got that will be running dual precision v-band wastegates and all of the boost. Holla at cha boi
