I have a question regarding the EFR mounting angle, would like to mount mine at 15 degrees or so compressor up to facilitate down pipe packaging, page 78 of the turbo specs state "It is not recommended to install the turbo considerably nose-up or nose-down. It was validation tested to be installed “flat” with respect to the ground"
Wonder if 15 deg would be considerably nose up? And what problems this could be expected form this mounting angle.
Thanks

it is advised to mount the turbo perfectly level - and you can tilt it a little bit, but the closest to level you can get it - the better...

15 degrees is pretty extreme, but it may work, ive got guys who run that angle on drysump motors... I wouldnt personally recommend it, but keep me posted the worst thing that happens is you leak oil into one end and have to take some angle out.

Thanks, I will see how things fit when building the manifold in a couple of months.
