Default 1.6L HKS Manifold Question

For those of you who actually have one...

In your opinion, is there enough clearance to run these two parts off the turbine:

V-band adaptor from ATP with 3" 90 degree low-profile downpipe.

Thanks.

According to the pic in this thread (which, oddly, is the only pic I've been able to find of the 1.6L HKS) it's the middle. Which is probably bad.

EDIT: Actually, unless it's an illusion, it appears to be slightly offset to the front, but if so, it's not by much.

probably be close with the flex, without it, I'd think it would fit no problems....if anything you can just trim the shelf out a bit and really take care of the heater hoses and brake master.

If I were to guess, I would say there is not enough clearance. If there is room, it would be an extremely tight fit.

I tried to e-mail you but it said you didn't want to receive e-mails. Mine is [email protected] and I'd love to see any pics you have time to send me.

I forgot I had some DP pics posted in my vb garage. This gives you an idea of what a 2.5 inch pipe would look like in a 1.8. I've since made a divorced version. I'll post some pics later.
