Nice update pics, manifold looks good for a DIY. The Eb also looks pretty tidy. Keep at it man.

Cheers

WHY not just make up a J pipe from std flange with wastegate pipe off that ???
The extra few mm won't hurt ...

yeah i guess you could do that and it would work fine, i just wanted to get rid of the standard manifold all together. its been proven that both styles of manifold work well tho :)

Today I went to the wreckers and picked up a new bonnet for the Eb. My old one was all acid washed and faded really bad. $50 and she looks as good as new again.

OH YEAH AND MY TURBO MANIFOLD ARRIVED TODAY TOO :) hell yeah !

just have to weld on the mounting flange for the wastegate and swap over a few accessories and i can pritty much drop the motor in.

it will still be a few months away as I have to save for an exhaust and tune.

not long now , hope you all like the work .
