You should hack up the heat shield a little bit, coat it or paint it, and pop it back on. The OEM pipes are ugly.

Aside from that, why didn't you clock the turbo so it's shooting down rather than up?

Um every thing you told me is old news. I know what i have to do about wraping the header. Plan on wraping header and down pipe. Pointing the turbo down would not have worked tryed and it wouldnt fit.



Also my manifold will last longer then the other guys cause his is stainless and mine is steel. Stainless will crack this one not so much.

Blue sonic, The whole stainless cracks is BS. Your manifold will not stand up to the test of time because of what it's made out of and how it's made. Your manifold looks to me like it's made out of thin walled stuff, the same stuff they make headers out off. While Zero's looks more like Sch 40 stainless. I could be wrong can't really tell from the pic. I can also see that yours was mig welded too. Not a bad effort tho everyone has to start some where and grow from the experince. Did you make it yourself?

It's the OEM header adapted with a flange for the turbo. It won't last long at all. Wayyyy too thin. He'll learn.

Most performance mods need a watch and timed course to demonstrate actual improvement. Few deliver the advertised claims. Many are actually worse than stock. The best performance mods are made to the driver.
