I would be thinking it's the head flange & maybe the turbo flange, if it's the complete set of pipes as well, all you have to do is weld it up, that's pretty cool.

It's got me thinking.....

i just bought the head flange and a heap of mandrel bends and just welded it up, i cut the turbo flange from a bit of 13mm plate we had in the workshop, its my own design, loosely based on the snort stage4 design, but with my own collector inspired by brad greenslades collectors minus the wastegate pipe, also the turbo is set further back and angled out 15degrees for better clearance.

first day of holidays 2moro and no more 15hr days or weekends for a while! :D so will see sum real progress from now on, starting with the inlet plenum, hopefully get it finnished tomoro

cheers all

Good question man. I like some engine bay bling, but it can get over the top. Maybe paint the rocker, polish the intake runners?

Cheers
