Ive been studying this for ages, looked at turbomustangs etc... what pipe diameters should i use when constructing my manifolds, and where should i run my crossover pipe? Turbo is being mounted on drivers side, was originally going to run it behind engine, but im worried bout clearance issues? Any pics of crossover pipes anyone?

NOT with ceramic coating !!! I only wrap mine in specific areas. Where the collector is and on #5 to protect power steering return line and pump....
If it gets that hot that it cracks ?? Its an inefficient design or real bad tune...Mine is twin's so pics wouldn't help ....
