Forget all of that stuff and buy carbon fiber body panels from HairyGlass. Fenders, hood, tailgate, doors, rear bumper. You'd be doing 12's with a stock turbo.

That manifold looks like its gonna put your wastegate through your radiator. I'm guessing its for another motor and you're gonna cut the flanges off and weld on f2 ones??

Idea....

Do the F2 and FE3 share the same exhaust port orientation? The two groups of two?

Getting all the good stuff out of there...


Had to cut the b Series Flange off


For room for these....


The outside runner i had to dent in a bit and the Runner pipe size for the b Series is huge compared to the f2 exhaust so to make that alittle more even i cut slits in the pipe and bent the ends in some to make the alittle close the the f2 size.


Also had to cut and move the inner runners to the outside to line up with the f2 flange. that wasnt bad one cut with the saw zaw and it lined up purity good. Now the Only problem I see having with the manifold is welding in between the runners. its tight...


other than that i think it will look good and fitt good too,





were the 2 bolt flange is for the WG, I will be cutting that off and welding a 44mm vband flange there. also ill be putting a bracket on the manifold so i dont have any isssues.... Hopefully..

Looking good!

For your next trick, try the same thing but with an aftermarket Evo manifold?
