More pics coming soon. Nothing special, just shots of wiring and whatnot. The real show is still on hold as Mr. Abe's time is being spent on something much more important than parts for my turd.

ARtech sent me some progress pics. I am so glad I sent my parts to him. He really has dealt with some obstacles but his godlyke powers have made him victorious.

oh that looks GOOD

Now you need to get the manifold coated or blasted so it doesn't look like an aborted fetus and you got yourself a very solid flowing setup

I would do the turbo too while you're at it.

I will post some more pics when I get back. He really went above and beyond to make this work. That first bend right off the turbo is a special order since it was so tight.

Everything is getting coated and cleaned. I may have a hard time coating/wrapping the dowpipe, though...it's so purdy. But heat management is the name of my game for being comfortable. The manifold and turbine are being sent off, for sure. I'm working on the housing right now, measuring for a outlet modification and then re-painting it battleship grey.

Edit: Abe sent pics




No bueno

That sex is being delivered. I can't wait.

I went 3 ways(lol) with some friends on a 2-ton engine hoist. I refuse to torture myself with installing a turbo manifold with the engine in the car. I already have enough nightmares and shameful memories from the old FM system....never again.

And of course, FM2 clutch deal. Going to take the motor/trans out, pop the trans off, switch places with the 6spd in the crate, put 6spd on, ship 5spd back to Gaylifornia to Mr. Ryan.

Please show me how this is a log manifold.
Also please show me where it says that abe made the manifold
Lastly, please show me what about that downpipe isn't downright sexy.

Dont get me wrong the downpipe is great while the manifold isnt the tubular design.

Are you on crack? Did you skip, literally, all of the pictures I posted of the manifold?

Here is the ETD Shorty from MightyMouse's car.



Notice the tubular runners and collector?

Edit: moar!!!!!


Hell I'll even repost my pics from like one page ago.

Nice, that looks awesome I want to see this thing run. Where did you find a Holset with a 5 bolt exhaust flange? All of the ones I looked at were v-band or 4-bolt.

Oh i see its been a while since i saw those pics so was only looking at the pics from this page which look very similar to the fms manifold, It looked like a diy using tube instead.

In good time. I tend to work at a slower pace than most on here.

I bought from another member on here (GotPSI?), he used it on his 1.6 race car. I originally wanted the v-band outlet turbine, but the measurements were...off, lol. It was huge and 4" right off the outlet. The 4 bolts are not as bad but, I don't remember off hand if they ever did a 4-bolt for the HY. The next step is the HX. Too big for me, right now. My HY turbine is .65 t3. But, it's a simple bolt-in at this point (HX/HY share identical 5-bolt outlet flanges)

I should be getting this big bitch spooling in the double digits easily by 4k. The other guy with the HY was seeing 8-9lbs by 3300-3400 and I'm not sure if he was using EBC or not. Different setups, but the Holset "magic" turbines are notorious for easily out spooling Garrett counterparts. Even if it is slower I won't mind really. This is for big power, highway pulls and generally bull-shitting around town. I am really curious to see what the power band will be like with the intake manifold and this turbo setup. I'm expecting my kidneys to be hurting.
