I talked to Mike about that, he's going to be using some kind of rubber isolator.

As well as triangulating the mounts.

Yeah those pics are not of the mounts finished. I went and added a lot more to the mounts i also have rubber under between the mounts. I am not worred about the mounts im more worried on what im going to do with the hood. The engine hits the turbo hits so im thinking cowled hood or have the valve cover modded and make a cut out in the hood for the turbo.

i was going to use this and mold it in so i could try and make looks stock ish. I need something 27-32" wide and no longer then 36".

Damn, that's sucks man.

I'm sure you could have a new manifold/dp made to lower the turbo, but to clear the engine this came to mind.

Nice progress. I'd go with different manifold too. What kinda manifold is on there now? Kinda looks like a megan tubular or something like that.
