Just tilt the gauge and reset the needle at 0.

ARTech has some mad welding skills. Mad props to the homie. Wastegate dump looks sexy, it would look even sexier if it was made to route back into the downpipe. slutz4 are you concerned with the loudness of the WG dump? Its going to be a track car by the looks of it. Looks like a really nice setup all together

Damn I'm jealous. That turndown is sick. I made a temporary one out of a u bend. I might have a nice one made or get a full exhaust done soon.

I havent started the car yet since putting on the turbo. Im sure it will be somewhat loud but not that bad. I live in an area where mustangs drive to the dragstrip with open headers. Im sure Ill be ok. Ill make sure to get some good videos once the car is running. But I expect that is still about a month away.

I have almost the exact same exhaust although it's ugly 2.5 mild steel and I have a cat. It's track only loud, but drivable on the street, you just feel like an ***.

Around here police don't really care about noise. Only once. My friend with a FC got bitched at by a enthusiast cop. He was like, "I'm embarrassed for motorsports when you drive this car on the street. Go to a real track like Sebring! If I ever see this car again I'll ticket you for everything." There are way to many loud redneck trucks, hondas, and bikes out here for them to worry. So I rock the 3" all day.

Ive know people to run around with 2 foot long open downpipes, now thats way too loud.
but if youre getting it out kinda out of the back of the car its not too bad, except for maybe a daily driver.

Getting alot closer to starting this thing. I got my megasquirt pnp finally, turbo is all clocked and ready, hotside pipe done, and wastegate actuator bracket figured out. It took me a long as time to figure out how to mount the wastegate then my uncle suggested an exhaust clamp lol. It should work pretty well. I also made a dual feed fuel rail because I was bored.

downpipe is about normal length, you can see where the flange is for exhaust dump on that pic.

Basically that dump bolts straight to the downpipe.
