Sweet, I've never seen it either. It appears that the turbo will interfere with the AC compressor/PS pump since it relocates it to the left, would also probably require a custom DP.

Interesting. Never seen it either. I wish the outlet was on the other side. Just makes more sense to run the cold side of the turbo on the passenger side of the car. That's how my hiboost is.

You would need all custom oil and water lines and downpipe, someone should try it out

I might try this since I am planning on doing a custom turbo back and I already have modified oil and coolant lines. I am currently breaking in a freshly built engine so I will be on the stocker for at least another month.

That would be awesome!

Definitely getting one of those subaru flanged ones, thanks for posting that up. That'll be a good spare if my hiboost manifold ever cracks. And I love subaru turbos.

FYI I have one of these manifolds, and its a Top mount T2 setup. I have no complaints on mine other than it makes the oil return a bit tight and interesting.

tight tolerances on the oil return and the manifold stud. I literally had to hold the manifold up a little to get it started and modify a wrench to be able to tighten that sucker down properly.

Dang, thanks. That looks amazing despite the tight clearances. Hood closes find and is that modified pope downpipe I see or is it completely custom?
