Why not get a reducer cone and a 4inch or 3.5 inch v band flange and toss that silicone off the turbo outlet. Otherwise it does like nice and clean. I like the header routing. Way easier to change plugs with the headers swept up.

BTW where did you get the Borg turbo from ? Looks like a bullseye race cover.

Nice. I have been following your build on the Turbo Forums. Me and Dad just picked up a solid 71 Nova roller. I have a S480 down at the shop begging to be put on that car.

Just grind off the flange on the compressor outlet (leave a hump) and use the silicone coupling and clamps.

i'm going to leave the lip and weld on a 3.5" stub on the end with a bead around the outside for the silicone to hold on

Right in the middle of the straight pipe will be fine.

With that setup anywhere would be fine but the closer to the turbo the better.
