The MSM turbo is clocked so the outlet is toward the fender. Here is my old setup





************************************************** **********
************************************************** **********



My current setup, pictured above, was done in the 11th hour the day before the Dec 31st dyno day. To save time we used the existing charge pipes to the IC from the previous twin turbo install. Haven't had time to redo it yet but it's on my list. It's actually the next thing I'll be tackling after the 3" SS AbsurdFlow DP for the BEGi-S. I plan to route it just like it was with the MSM turbo. The filter should end up right inside a BEGi Cool Air Box I plan to install.

Thanks for all of the input. I am still going to go with my original plan. I think I have a few advantages on my side. I'll be using 2" piping out of the compressor into the IC, I'm using the Begi manifold so the turbo will sit up higher, and because I have an 02, i think the headlight design (non pop-up) allows more room. I think it can work, at least that's my plan for the day. Thanks again for the feedback.

It does seem to interfere with routing an intake..... still need to get that figured out!
