Why are those square shapes welded on certain turbo manifolds?
I can't say I've seen it before on any other turbo manifolds except for some that I've seen on this forum.

yeah and in my case they were added after the manifold was cracked
I think absurdflow adds them from the beginning.

Interesting, although I suspected they were for reinforcement.
I'd say it's just introducing more potential failure points, but I guess I'm wrong :P.

I don't think many people have done it successfully with the garrett housing yet.

Does anyone have a 7163 v band inlet in person yet? Looks available on full race website but I just called and the guy said they don't have them in stock, maybe summer. I wasn't talking to raffi or Geoff though, so I don't completely trust whoever I was talking to.

I was on the waiting list for the twin scroll 7163 or a Vband 6758. Neither are in stock both expected sometime in March. That was in January, since then iv dropped my turbo BP plans, I'm selling all my BP **** and dropping in a K24A2. If full race ever emails me back I will post the update though.

I need to reassemble my motor and get my hotside parts back from Abe so I can go for ALLOFIT on a bp. I've got a nice bonus coming soon to fund the other supporting mods I'll need.

I need to message you here soon soviet to pick your brain.
