    question, bc i saw your setup in the earlier pages.... would your turbo piping from headers to turbo work with the catless headers that people run? i was wondering if someone would buy those, cut them & weld the flange if it would work rather than using factory cats? i know youre in new york so you need cats but florida theres no smog inspection

    No, you can't install cats before the turbo they will meltdown! Vibrant have some nice high horsepower cats 3" 3.5". Cats must be installed after the turbo for best performance.

    maybe i'm misunderstanding but when you mounted the turbo, your stock headers connected to the turbo. what i'm asking is if i upgrade my headers to the MerTop ones & edit it so that they're shorter & bolt it to the turbo would that work as well?

    this picture... the picture where the turbo's mounted on the engine... i see you're running the stock headers; is it possible to use the Mertop headers & cut it shorter & use it?

    That exhaust manifold is made from very thin SS unfortunately they will crack on day! I would keep stock cast manifold or build new turbo manifold from schedule 10 SS . Stock cast manifold should be good for 900hp and they more stable to heat

    Yes you can do it but it will be a lot more piping.

    We keep tq at 700Nm for know, we still have little more room to bump the tq but only after we tune tranny.

    Did you replace the HKS one or is the Cortex added on? & what is it's purpose? to decrease boost when car's EGTs are too high?
