Check these out... The compressor housing on the turbo has not been polished, and the exhaust housing is going to be high temp coated, but other than that it is done!

Ethan, very nicely engineered, EXCEPT (I hate to be negative) I don't like the wastegates output to downpipe angle. The flow at that juntion will not be as good as it could be if the angle was downstream instead of upstream. The outflow from the WG will be towards the turbo instead of towards the tailpipe. This could lead to inconsistent boost control and less power than the system could make (still will be stronger than a grizzly). Sorry about being anything but estatic for you. I love the rest of it. The header rocks, the wastegate feeds are well thought out and executed, the downpipe is very nice (almost) perfect.

Hello Ethan,

I checked your car at sound performance toady. I have to tell you, you probably have the best SC with a NA engine. By the way, your highly polished manifold is beautiful, for the first second I thought the parts were chromed.

What size wheel do you have in the back? and what off-set? how do you like your SP9000's?

Man, I wish I could see my car

The rear rims are a 9.5"... The SP9000 are nice in the rain, and alright daily, but they are a pretty hard compound, so don't provide a lot of traction for turbo applications

BTW, those rims and tires are for sale if you know anyone interested. The whole set (wheels and tires) only have 3k miles on them.

Glad you liked the car, and when I am coming up to get it I will make a post and maybe I could meet you at SP or something...
