Thanks guys, i will try and get some pix of the tubing/piping tomorrow if i dont get home late.

From what i saw the driver side manifold runs under the car around the back of the motor, joins with the pass. side manifold and up to the front between the fan and engine. The 3" exhaust runs down the pass. side into a muffler then spilts into 2 big *** HKS mufflers. All the exhaust piping up to about the middle of the car is heat wrapped too. Very well done.

The car came with an Emanage Ultimate. Never had one or used one. But since i tune cars i figured i wil try to master it and take it from there. If i change it, it would be for either a EMS Stinger or Haltech E6or11

Got her running again. Turbo's on working perfectly. Now i have to check for boost leaks make sure everything is tight and right. Im doing some drivability tuning and buttoning things up along the way. The car moves effortlessly on the highway without having to give it almost any gas. And i verified the tranny, it is a R154!

I will have some pix tmr.
