Does that intake clear inner fender? Specifically throttle body/tps. Mine is hitting needs to be either clocked 90 put cable from top of manifold, cut out/bang fender/shock tower, or change angle of the flange at intake side. Thats for me with 2jz, cx mounts(altered them to have motor in the middle though. Dont know about if you fitted before or not.

Haven't had to much time to plug away with work being as busy as it is and wrapping up home renovations. On the fence about mounting the turbo and snipping the hood or mounting the turbo lower and leaving the hood as is. I ended up moving the alternator over just incase I want to bring the turbo lower. Next step, modify the lower waterneck outlet and bring it as close to the block as possible.

 

For the guys who upgraded to a single turbo has anyone braced the turbo back to the block or frame of the car?

I've heard mixed about bracing, like since the pipes are expanding bracing can cause fractures from the tension caused by fixing the turbo flange in place in respects to the expanding pipes. Not that continually expanding and shrinking pipes with a weight on it would fare much better. Part of why I went with the heavy SS cast manifold.

Had a bit of time on my hands two weeks ago, had been waiting on the old ladies water to break. I have a headlight bucket that has seen better days, decided to try something different out, I couldn't source anything newer. Current prototype print is PLA settings are 210 at the nozzle and 60 at the bed.
