Thanks for the visual, I was wondering how far forward the turbo would need to sit but will it accomodate P/S?
With the P/S removed, will it be possible to clock the outlet down to allow it to be routed underneath rather than over the top and down to the intercooler?

- might want to consider including a Suzuki Cappucino washer bottle option in the kit too

If I'm ever bored with my car and have extra $$$ laying around, I'll definitely try a 7163.

Do not assume anything about the kit beyond the physical location of the turbocharger from that photograph, please. You assumed the kit is not P/S compatible (it is), and then you assumed that the P/S has to be removed to clock the outlet down (it doesn't have to be removed). Interpret that photo as a general idea of where the turbo sits in the engine bay and nothing more.

The Cappuccino bottle is absurdly overpriced, so we won't use it. Details like that will be hashed out after the manifold/downpipes are available.

Lokiel, the vast majority of USDM NB chassis have the washer bottle on the right side (unless you have ABS) so its not really a concern for most of us in the US. Your RHD Aussie NB is kind of a special case in this regard. You probably have better (read: cheaper) access to the cappuccino bottles than we do anyway.

Agreed, unfortunately everything we import is absurdly overpriced here in Oz so it's less of an issue here (you guys in the US really don't appreciate how good you've got it) - I have one and it genuinely looks like it was made to fit the NA/NB; only NA/NB owners would recognise it's not an OEM component.

So the hood won't need relief holes cut in it for the new location of the washer bottle on ABS cars?

We will, of course, bundle a downpipe with the manifold/turbo, but I don't have any details to share on that. Needless to say, it's getting a similar level of attention to detail as what's been put into the manifold project.
Put me down for the group buy.

I feel like having a positive "props" count and at least 1,000 posts should be a requirement to get in on the group buy

I really like that there are more options for EFR now. You should consider a TS manifold since nobody else is making them. I'd do so many things for a TS 7163 and manifold. Sadly nobody local does much shop work anymore for manifolds.

Competing against other grown men for props and number of post isn't what brought me to the forum or this particular posting, I just want to buy to the product when it's available

Grown men? Good joke. There is no competition for props. Props are awarded when you contribute in a good way to the community. When you detract from the community props are subtracted. Never once have I asked for props.

Can I have props?
