Hopefully they are going out today.

My "extender" arrived earlier last week. Not sure exactly how/where I'm supposed to apply suction, and it seems to have too many orifices. Maybe to accommodate "challenged" bros? Haz shop vac, will figure it out.

Delivered too late to do anything with them today. Will ship all the NA lowers tomorrow.

NB bros, there was a slight hiccup in the production process, so the fit between the upper and lower is very loose (too loose). We will be shipping a thin sleeve to all the NB owners later this week to sort out that fitment issue.

It the upper half of the down pipe the same for NA and NB? Any reason a NA down pipe wouldn't fit on a NB? I know it won't fit up to any off the shelf exhausts, but that really isn't an issue for me.

NA DP should fit fine on an NB if you can build a custom exhaust for it. Uppers are the same.

A couple of other notes. The NA guys who are still waiting for water lines will get their parts next week - I am waiting on a few bits to complete those oil/water line kits. In addition, there was a water fitting change for MY99 that means the 3/8" hoses I included with the water lines won't fit with NA motors, so if you're using an NA front water neck or NA water pump inlet, you need a 5/16" silicone hose instead of the 3/8" hose I gave you. If that's you, let me know and I'll drop a couple pieces of 5/16" in the mail when it arrives.

That works perfectly for me. Looking forward to getting the down pipe in so I can lay it next to my Absurdflow one and marvel at them until I get them on a car one day.

I didn't see any 'real life' pictures of the water / oil line kit so I figured I'd post some. The little anodized supports for the hard lines are super neat.

Those hose clamp separators are cool. You can get em on ebay for pretty cheap (for other projects). I got a big pack of red ones for random hose separation.

Nibbles approves of the welds on the TSE NB down pipe.

Rear bung, yes. Front bung is futureproofing.

I always like the lower rear bung due to making it easier to route O2 wires up into the cabin through the shifter turret hole.

Also is there any reason to not weld the 2 pieces together instead of using the clamp? I am assuming the 2 piece design was more for shipping then a fitment issue?

You can weld them, sure. I would clamp them together securely first, then remove the DP as one piece to make sure you can clear everything on your car before welding. You don't want to weld it and then discover it can't be removed

I really need to carve out a couple of days and finish writing the instructions, but one item of note for 5-speed guys. There's a small ear of metal on the 5-speed that interferes with the downpipe. You'll need to stick a reciprocating saw up there and chop that off before installing. 6-speed guys can ignore this. Pics below:

Location of the ear. It serves no purpose:


Size of the ear after removal:
