Looks like 3" to me. Probably just looks bigger because of the camera.

I hope so. It'd be nice to not bother with transitions.

I'll throw a tape on it before I mail it out, but I think it's just 3".

I can also get the housings for cheap enough that at some point, I will tune the car on a .64 housing as well (the housing in the photos is a .86 A/R housing) just to see the difference.

Very nice. Is the WG VTA?
Another question: supposedly you need to introduce the gasses from the 4 cyls in the turbine inlet in the correct (circular) order - how is that done here?

I'd never heard that. It's set up in the same order as most other manifolds. The WG will normally be vented to atmosphere, yeah.

I mean this:
Turbo Manifold Design
(blue box: Turbo Manifold Design at the bottom)
but there is no conclusion in the article.

In a perfect world, those sort of principles could probably be better applied, but packaging and ease of manufacture come into play under our hood. I don't think it's keeping Paul and other Absurdflow users up at night, not with the sort of power figures they're pulling down.
