          Update: the manifold is done. Not my prettiest welds but the production one will be a lot nicer with sch. 10
          Just gotta figure out everything else lol.

            Looks cool, not sure if anyone in the US has tried to make a bottom mount for m20. What's the clearance like near the strut tower reinforcement? Looks tight...

            You going to be making a kit around this manifold or just selling the manifolds for others to fab up a kit?

              Clearance is a little too close but will be adjusted for production. We will probably be going with both options but probably a good idea for the engine mount to come with the manifold.

                  Looks awesome! What's the wastegate and oil drain solution going to be?

                    Wastegate should be able to route to the downpipe and the turbo sits higher than the oil line so I think so far so good.

                      Taking a brief hiatus from the turbo to add gussets and rebuild the bulkhead. More updates to come soon as we will be building this bottom mount kit on a customer car. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk

                          Also, modified the turbo a little to fit a tight bend. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk

                              Enjoy seeing progress, I would have preferred a X or something as the roof bars. Triangles Rule.
