nearly identical to how i run mine, although I have A/C. So instead of angling in towards the center, my drives straight forward, more under the P/S resevior.

Gotta love getting rid of the AFM though - makes so much extra room under the hood!

Would you guys say there is a performance benefit to clocking the turbo and therefore using less piping/bends for the IC piping? If so, how much would you speculate it is?

I love how clocking the Greddy gives you so much more room to do a cold air box for the filter. A+

I know there's less piping so that can help with spool up as it's got less distance to go to the throttle body so that's got to help some!
Certainly though, there were three reasons for me clocking the turbo.
1. I hated Jim's pipes and still do (mine were actually the development prototype pipes so you can imagine what they were like!)
2. I wanted to move my air filter so I could see down into my engine bay properly
3. I wanted to shorten the pipe run to the throttle to bring my lag down even further than it is already - but this is helped by the new ecu though too

All in all though I'd rather not have the pipes running over the top of he intake just because the stock greddy location is so poor and if you don't re-pipe you can't really do much about it

I get full boost at about 3200 rpm with a tony DP and no AFM. I'd say that is pretty good and I'm sure the short pipes help.

I just wish I could find a Tony downpipe here for sensible money - I'd swap over in a flash!

Gonna get silly expensive shipping to the UK though - real PITA!
Might be worth me waiting for the Begi to get done and have a look at that...
