Quick question, if I were to run my upper reversed, ie. the original way, US spec, whats the best way to go about it?
Modified EGR lines, shorten accel and cruise cable, modified cruise and accel cable bracket, lengthen TPS wires?
Is it even possible to get the accel and cruise cables to turn around 180 and still work?
Anything else I'm missing?

t/b linkage?
but why would you want to swap it around? looking at turboing or s/charging to make the cooler pipes shorter?

Aftermarket rail kit FTW then, was looking at them anyway.
Where does the stock rail foul when the upper manifold is US direction?

Yeah sean, thinking water to air but dont want to squeeze it on the passenger side if I can avoid it.

Battery will need to be moved, for air box. The fuel pressure reg interferes when the manifold is reversed. I was looking at running the RPMII the correct way so the writing was not upside down, but it was all to hard, so ran it the same as the HO

What is the reason we run it this way?, brake master?, steering or is it so they could use the same cooling system set up as the six?.

Haha, actually no.

EL XR8 made the point to me on the phone before about alternator and pipework clearance.
Could be squeezy.
Cheers for the help guys.
