Default More ABSURDflow standard location track setups w/pics

My last two orders were coincidentally the same basic things except wastegate color/springs and # of O2 bungs. GT3071r, .64A/R. I had to take pics of them together at the expense of making my customers wait. These also show my newer, simplier, more user friendly EWG dump blend pipe and resulting lack of joint on the 3" pipe, saving ching-dow.

More pics:

One day, if I ever get a real job beyond this whole broke *** college student thing, one of these beautiful works of art will be strapped to my motor.

Ninja edit: My photographer of a wife declares that those pictures make it look like miniatures, and now I want to know how you did that.

That looks dirty.

Those look awesome; I still attrack a crowd at the track when my hood is up. Is this the 3rd generation set-up now? I think it's still pretty insane that between Andrew, Nick, and me, we haven't broken or cracked anything in what 2.5-years?

I already coined this; those water cooled wastegates probably won't discolor.

It's not that expensive when you consider the going rate for cast manifolds and DP's from the competitors. I went down this road, called in desperation, realized it wasn't that expensive in the long-run, and I'm the happiest of customers over the last 3-years.

Stop slacking Tim and get to work on my RamHorn setup so you can make this thread even more NSFW.

I pressed the button on the camera & resized them with windows resizer. My wife's 5D, 24-105 f/4L IS. I use aperture priority @ 4 and let the camera do the rest of the work. Some of the pics I'm standing on my step ladder so the shadow from my body wouldn't be as obvious.

I don't quite understand the tilt shift idea, and I definitely don't know photoshop or other softwares enough to do it with software. All I know in photoshop is how to resize a picture and add text to it. Kinda silly.

Why don't people get this? It's gusseting for the welds.

I wonder if a flex section in my DP dump would make the WG stop whistling? right now it goes "woo woo", like an alarm clock.

Nice, glad you represent AF well! I need you to email me pics so I can update my "testimonials" section. Yeah, this I guess is the third revision and the only one that broke is Sav's after like 1 track day...EWG VTA unsupported didn't work too good!

Yours shouldn't whistle at all, you have no flexes. I was told the woo wooo was from the liner on the flexes. I use smooth-liner flexes so they don't go woo whooo. Which BTW are also on national backorder like the tial housings. FTL.

I know, it's strange and I can't fix, nor do I care to. When the gate opens it whistles, confirmed my lil Sis. I've tried to adjust a few things, but again, "give-a-****" is low.

Like an alarm clock or like a muffler tip?

Tim, those are beautiful! Just perfect.

If you could make that setup spool both turbos without the motor, you'd win a nobel prize.

Moar: Tim, would it be TOO bling to replace the diamond shaped gussets with cut out letters that spell out "F L O W"?
