I solve problems by doing nothing and then when I come back they are solved.

You need to measure the area behind your turbo and see what you have for downpipe clearance.

According to that link, the adapter is 2" outwards, you'll probably need to cut the rear shelf to make a clean 3" downward turn.

It's cut in the V8 builds, and a recent turbo build I can't think of. It's no biggie.

Cut it ya sissy. If you are really scared, reinforce the corner with some plate and angle. Nice looking build so far.

I think it's one of the weird manifold designs, like that's angled or something. Check that German's 400hp build or something.

I bought my car new. I think it might have still been under warranty when I put the turbo on. I decided to work around it.
