Holy $#!T ! What a small world! I actually picked this up at PR Motorsports!!!

The wastegate honestly is not that bad once you do it a few times. I can disassemble and reassemble my hot side in about 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Sounds bad, but those parts will outlive the car

I usually assemble most of the kit outside of the car before the reinstall:

Also, you're going to need some longer exhaust studs for the larger corners on this manifold. If you can't find anything locally, contact the good man at; he was kind enough to modify my turbo stud order at no extra cost (after I placed it, too).
Great tips!!! Thanks!!!

This may be the first semi legit build for under $1000!

I was going to say that's def a FM3.

Although the bolts are a pain in the ***, I just dealt with them. I installed my EWG portion of the parts before I bolted the manifold on. Then just get the DP lined up and have fun with that rotten *** 5th stud/nut.

At that price, you stole that ****. lol

Good job!
