thanks for all the nice comments, i put alot of time into that mani, not sure on weight savings, i rear ended a person pretty good, i had a cage already, this was my solution, i want the car to be around if not under 2000lbs when finished. no fuel cells, not yet anyway, i already had a walbro 255, as extravagant as my build is, im trying to save cost here and there, my car went to newyork to get the custom turbo manifold,down pipe,exhaust, and charge pipes made, gonna be a sick top mount, very very short charge pipes, 3" v-band downpipe and exhaust, borla xr1 race muffler, tial 38mm gate, greddy rs bov. picks will be up in a month when i get it back. im gonna be getting precision 880cc injectors, and run a honda resistor box or wire resistors inline with each injector.

hahaha awsome its so sick




just pure bad *** work so far, morgan at synapse motorsport is the man

they swaped my old style tial 38 for the new 38 vband gate
i know it looks weird with the angle of the turbo but it works good for the intercooler piping, also it looks like the dp with be tight, but is you look the turbo sits high enough over the hoop and frame for the down pipe to slide right under the gate and out the back. ******* AWSOME

damn... badass work man.

To all the 'haters'
I used to think drifting was so corny.... then i went to a formula D event.

It was tons of fun. ******* nuts how close they were getting to eachother; rubbing side-view mirrors. It was honestly 10x as exciting to watch as I had expected.
If you think it sucks, go to an event....

Would go again A++++++++!

its a GT3071R

as for the downpipe

if you look in the 1st pic you will notice that the turbo sits above the front hoop/frame and that the wastegate is higher than the turbo, keep that in mind and look at the 2nd pic, there is plent of room to 90 off the turbo and go under the gate, and back under the car its gonna be a 3" vbanded dp to a 3" vbanded exhaust, i told them to make it look like a RSR, and i gave them a 3" borla xr-1 race muffler to use

you cant really make a tublar front end for production. its kinda one of stuff like custom roll cages. my car is 100% racecar. this stuff isnt for the faint of heart. if you want bolt on go see one of the companys owned by old men (FM,begi,every other miats parts company lol) my parts are one off and i dont plan on making more because of the cost and how labor intensive it is
