Default ABSURDflow BEGI/FM tubular replacement Ver 2 plus V-bands & 3071

As always, if pics don't show below hit refresh or F5.

I made "Version 2" of my BEGI FM tubular replacement this past week. Difference between the original is I made the outer 2 primaries a little more direct but they cover two of the stud holes. You have to trim them short to fit. Add vbands, the new watercooled tial MVS, and a GT3071R...this setup is making me giggle. The fact that I could run this on my car doesn't help! (the other style manifolds I make require removing stuff I don't want to remove).

More pics here:

(3 pics below, hit refresh if they don't show)






Downpipe to come next.

Damn you TurboTim, I've got a bad case of manifold envy now! I really like the V-band connection for the turbo, no more annoying mounting studs to deal with.

I could do a 1.6 manifold, but can't guarantee fitment on the downpipe when going vbands.

As it is, yep. I think there's info on FM's site on what you need to trim to get the 3071 to fit. Or you can bolt it on like I did and mark the chassis, roll it, done. The overhang there is about an inch long.

3 pics below.






Pic of the last low mount/centered build. I finally figured a way to add a flex to the EWG pipe and went with a vband on the 3" pipe instead of a double slip/springs. Makes life a lot easier.

Jesel got with the times and purchased a laser engraver. Guess who's in charge of setting it up? hehe.
