How happy are you with your ARTech manifold? Did you get a downpipe from him too?

Also, what fitting did you use to connect your AFPR to your factory hard line? Look sphethcial.

I'm very happy with the ARTech manifold, yes I did receive a downpipes from him too. They're just hardline adapters, I am getting rid of them though because i'm going full AN fuel lines.

I forgot to ask-

Why is there a plunger inside your engine?

I have a 'plunger' holding up my hood because I don't have a hood prop, actually it's a stick of some sort.

My last turbo was a 60-1 non-BB, this turbo is actually smaller--is DBB, Billet wheel, so M.net can go to hell lol

How'd you decide to go with that turbo? Which A/R did you get? I can't see **** on the PT website. I'm considering going for a gt3582 and a flipside mani/dp down the road.

What is the functional difference between a billet wheel and a regular wheel?

I needed a turbo to fit my horsepower goals, the GT30R is a good sized turbo for my horsepower goals but then I ran across the 5857 which is similar size but will flow 600 hp. So I opted for the turbo that will spool faster, and give me more horsepower potentiality to play with. I went with the .63 A/R

Billet wheels are lighter, more aerodynamic. The CNC machined blades allow less material on each blade, and that equates to a higher mass flow rate. There are other reasons the billet wheels are superior, but its too much to explain.

Everything is coming together nicely, my intercooler piping is the shortest i've ever seen and should help out a lot with spool, im running a duel backdoor FMIC set up with 3" cold side piping, 2.5" hotside.
