haha those were priceless mac. Starting the install this weekend - I sure hope I don't have to take a gingerbread train to school. It'll all go in without any problems, issues, unforeseen road blocks, etc.... right?

that's an odd footprint that the manifold was modded for, does the turbine housing match it? DSM footprint maybe.
I still need to put in a call to Corky/Tim... but I've heard the GT2871 educated guess from a couple other sources.

Footprint - I'll be honest... I'm not sure what you're talking about - - Are you talking about the port hole of the manifold matching the size of the turbo intake? What's DSM footprint mean? Eager to learn it all. Thx
