Are the inercoolers sharing the same bov? Wouldn't a 1 in 2 out design be more efficient? but hey if they have the money then more power to them...

I almost did, but I'd much rather buy tires and brakes for a miata rather than the vette.

its a twin turbo, you'd want two intercoolers.

Probably, popular thing to do is swap the left and right exhaust mani so they face forward and bolt the turbo to that. You can see part of hte turbo peeking out but I don't know if that's a stock manifold or not, dunno what they look like on hte C6.

manifolds look the same on the c6. Even if that is a 5.7. They upped it 6.0 for the c6 in 05' and now its a 6.2 LS3. All of them are almost identical. Its the pieces around the engine that have changed between each year.
