I may take you up on that offer. although I do have a BEGI set up now. I'm sure having some pics of this custom mani installed would help sell it though.

Looks like we'll have nearly identical setups then considering we both have the S5 manifold. You just happen to have alot larger($$$) turbo than I. Is that a brass check valve in your coolant line?

It's just a reducer to go from the 3/8 hose connection on the turbo to the 1/4 hose where we connected in to the coolent system. I'll more than likely change all my hoses to SS at a later date and clean that up.

Yeah I spent an *** load on my turbo. not sure how smart it was but what is done is done.

The only problem I would have with using that custom manifold would be that it might not fit my turbo either. The picture you have of your current setup, what manifold exactly is it? It looks like a cast one, is it? Did you have to use a custom downpipe for it too? You still have an external wastegate in there somewhere?

The Mani i'm using now is in my sig..

BEGI S5 it's cast and externally gated. I used a custom DP but BEGI will make one up for you i'm sure.

So with your Greddy EMU you were able to get 660s to work well? With MS I always thought that 550s was about tops on where you should go to control them.

MS can control just about any injector you want, it just depends on how rich you want to idle at. With Hi-Res firmware you could idle 660s no problem.

Idled fine with 660's but I pulled them because the place I bought them were known to have issues with their injectors.. Rather than risk it we pulled them and put in 550 cc RX7 injectors. The 550s should be fine for now.. I wont be cranking up the boost and running e85 for a while..
