Default my new turbo build

So if any of you have been paying attention you know I removed the MSM turbo because of massive boost creep and temporarily had a twin turbo setup but that didn't work out so well. I then bought Supra441979's GT2560R he listed here. I'm having a local guy who's pretty decent with a TIG welder make the manifold for me. What do ya think?







BOTTOM MOUNT!

Yeah eventually.

I'll get more pics of the other side of the flanges when I'm done.

EDIT: oh yeah, the above pics are NOT of the finished manifold. The head flange is just tacked on, and the turbo flange is only welded where you see it in the pics. I weld my manifolds on the outside of the flanges.

I do plan on sending it out for ceramic coating. I hate the additional down time(down time meaning no boost) but I think it's worth it. Should still have it all in by Christmas

I should finish welding it today. Maybe Sunday for the downpipe? Afterwards we can send the manifold and the turbine housing (if you want) out to coating.
