IYAM it take way more of man to figure out how to do the boost with AC- that means space and temps. Flip that manifold and go top mount.

It really won't fit? My Bell S4 puts the turbo flange about even with the bottom of the exhaust flange. How much lower does your turbo sit?

yeah, unfortunately i think your only option is to go top-mount or directly out to the side, which makes your downpipe routing much less palatable.

though, i wonder if you could have a similar setup but push the turbo back further... under the shelf. i don't have my car within 30 miles of me at the moment, else i'd take a look and see if i'm imagining a space that isn't there... i very well may be...

Top mount or an S4 design are probably my only to options. The dp with the S4 should be cake to make. Hell, I bet my current dp could be modified to work with it. And I don't run PS you it could probably be made to go a bit lower to alloy the dp to be straighter.

S4/GT2871 works with the A/C compressor. That is what I am using.

It helps to get the PS pump out of the way using the stock idler pulley/bracket setups, also what I am doing (It made room for a huge 90 deg silicone elbow. The anti-surge compressor housing has a huge inlet, 4" dia IIRC). That creates more clearance for the turbo inlet plumbing. It is not completely necessary though. I think BEGI uses a dimpled steel tube with a sharp 90 deg upturn to clear the PS pump though I do not know how large of a turbo they have done that with. I remember discussing it with Steph but that was a couple of years ago.

The turbine outlet ends up sitting very low in the engine bay so the DP will be easier to mod/fab.

What kind of power and spool difference do you guys think I would see going from my current setup to an S4 design?
