$072 - CXRacing 18x12x3 IC
$115 - Downpipe parts 90*, 2 45*, flex, o2 bungs, t3 flange.
$035 - various Fasteners

Id like to see between 230 and 260, reasonable spool. The Tial should help me keep the boost up i hope with the .48 exhaust.

Is that 16ga mild for the downpipe? Are you integrating the ewg or staying with dump? stage 1 turbine? it looks larger.

that last picture is not the downpipe, it is the Intercooler pipe that goes to the throttle body. Yes it is mild steel from Mandrel Bends and I dont know what gauge. Downpipe will be from the same stuff though and I will most likely integrate, but not until I run it with an external dump a few times to make sure i dont like it.

as far as the turbine wheel goes, I am almost positive it is a stage 1. The seller also told me that it was a stage 1 when I bought it. If i dont like the spool when I get it set up, would you consider trading exhaust housings?

I should have recognized that pipe- it looks just like mine, same tubing.

I would, but I've got a merc housing which will be useless to you w/o fabricating work (and your's for me). Plus I actually picked up a stage 3 turbonetics housing for $15. score.

That ewg is just screaming to be dumped back into the dp isn't it? Nice how that mani gives lots of room to work with the exhaust. Tell me you still have to clock the compressor housing.

Are you going to be using an oil line restrictor?

Ok, witnter term is over and i had some time to work on the project finally this weekend. I finished building the downpipe and I finished welding/grinding the intercooler pipes that were tacked. I was going to hire the final welding out, but when I was quoted $100 for the whole thing i cringed and decided to do it myself ... well most of it at least. I am going to have the guy weld the parts that connect to the flange because that **** is tough to weld with my lack of skills and flux core. Well enough talk for now, here are my pictures. I am quite pleased with my work.

This, my friends, is a $100 downpipe:

Scavenged the flange from the DSM Blow off valve pipe and welded it to my Intercooler tubes:

And Finally, I rerouted the lower coolant hose using the stock hard tube and one new hose from autozone. I did this when I realized that stripes pipes do not work on the hotside either and busted out a new route for the pipes with a 90* silicone hose, and parts from the stripes kit. I ended up using about half of the piping so thats a good thing.

No flex section in the ewg pipe? easy enough to add if you wanted it.

I don't have a flex section in my EWG pipe right now. It's been good thus far and I used all stainless. If you can get one cheap enough I'd add it now for peace of mind.
