    Yes, you should be posting a thread about your cars anyways... why are you hiding the goodness from us. Are you ashamed of YOUR Bronzit car? lol

    ALL RIGHT! :) I'll get the ball rollin this week.

      The next time your Mishimoto springs a leak, you'll buy a CSF

        Enjoy watching the development, good work! I can't wait to get driveable to do the same!

        I was up above it, Now I'm down in it ~ Entropy - A Build thread.

          Re: Revshift mounts, also saw your ig story about these, so that makes sense.
          Does the engine still mount in the middle of the bay?
          The mounts look really offset, but does one of them just mount in the other hole or something?
          I've run these condors for 6-7 years now and it would be nice to lose some NVH, but not if I need to make a whole new downpipe lol.

            did you gas/back purge when you welded up the headers?

            They tend to crack if you dont

              thanks, really cleaned the interior up

              I was considering it. But I will say the 54mm core in the mishimoto radiator is pretty awesome. Looks like my choices would be PWR or fluidyne to get close to that.

              Thanks! I've been enjoying the same following your builds. With the car running, driving, and tested, this is my favorite part of the project - messing around with small details

              The biggest difference between the mounts is between the driver side. Passenger side is nearly the same profile. I could take a photo if you want. As far as NVH... idk if revshift sells a softer bushing, but these bushings I had were very stiff.

              No I didn't, good to know. I guess I'd have to tee off the regulator or something for a separate feed of gas? The header didn't crack a weld, it cracked one of the flex joints. Upon closer examination this was likely my fault. I noticed while I was disassembling that the entire header back section was shifted rearward 1/4 - 1/2". Before I clearanced the center muffler I smacked it a few times on speed bumps/driveway and probably pulled it rear, stretching the header flex joints until one cracked.

                Yeah, you can get a dual flow regulator.

                Def a must for long term use headers, since the oxidation on the inside really does compromise the welds longevity

                  Any reason you went Revshift motor mounts over AKG?

                    If you find a convenient time to get a picture, I'd go for a comparison.
                    I bought the 80A, so there has to be some NVH improvement from solid.

                      did you get the state ref situation figured out?

                        Thanks for the tip, I'll look into it.

                        Back then I think AKG was stocked out, otherwise AKG was my choice. Currently I can't remember if there was a specific reason to go condor vs AKG.

                        Not quite yet. I hired a lawyer. They're still trying to get a court date.

                          ^ same reasoning about AKG here. Wanted them for their mounts' reputation but they were out of stock for what felt like years.
                          I ran revshift bushings in the rear of two cars now, tried a few other brands but liked them the most.
                          They had tearing issues with V1 of their 24v swap mounts, then booster clearance issues with V2, so when I saw V3 for half the cost of AKG (which was still out of stock) I went for it.
                          I really appreciate their commitment to fixing problems

                            Looks like they're in stock now if you need em. I used them on my S52 swap and they are the business.

                              I was curious so I just checked my email for my old revshift order. They were 95A "hard" street/track green and I bought them in early 2015. On my car they just hit their 6 year birthday. Dunno which revision they were, but like I mentioned before, I never had any fitment or performance issue. Not with the booster clearance either when fitted against the M52 intake manifold. M50 manifold required a porsche 944 booster and moving it 1 inch.

                                That was the nice thing about the AKG mounts. I used them and the 944 booster. No relocation needed using the M50 manifold. I'll post updates in my build showing that.
