If/when I go EWG it won't be off that runner port, it scares me. My brace broke twice before I got a combination of material that offers enough flexibility with support. I started with square tube which broke at the base where it attached at the mounting point, then after a reweld it broke in the middle. So I sectioned it and stuffed a short solid rod section in it and that seems to have worked.
Yes.... I wish the EWG was on the collector.
My brace cracked in a really obvious place. I didn't like it when I did it three years ago. I ground the tiny piece of angle into a tiny flat to clear the compressor housing. I added more beef to that area, it won't break there again. Seriously, your tree falling scares me!

DVCN for President. If he could accomplish as much with the Country as he has with his car, on proportionally the same budget, the national debt would be gone in his first term.
I am jealous that your car is so highly developed! Mine has been a grenade with the pin pulled from day one.
I hadn't published this before but here are the rough costs including shipping. I'm sure there are some other small items that are missing. If I was going for 200whp-220whp things would have been considerably cheaper. Things are sized for future power goals.
