The gang over at Fathouse Fabrications did the turbo related work and the 8.50 cage in my car. Great guys to deal with and their work speaks for itself!! I didn't know if we could pull off the 5" downpipe going past the firewall but Jeremy did a great job executing it.

I don't remember if I posted a pic or not, but just had my intake tubes powder coated, so the engine comp. is finished
4" exhaust to the rear bumper, pretty quite now-with the hood closed everything fits

I am. I thought about having a section made with a v-band to a muffler so I could "quick change" the dump and run True Street. Honestly, I'm going to leave it as is. I just want to hear the car run!



A short length, 5" diameter down pipe??? You will learn to love hearing that turbine!!! Its going to be like a 747!!!

It doesn't look like you dipped your fire sleeve to keep the ends from becoming a frayed mess.


Take some red high temp silicone and thin it to a watery solution with acetone. Dip the ends in it and let them hang dry, keeps them looking good, and gives the ends an interior surface that grips the hose/hose ends if you clamp them.

Just a tip.

Almost ready to fire it up.


I have been told that you want your oil feed lines the same length from the tee, that being said the tee should be between the turbos with a equal length line going to each one. Not bashing just relaying what I was told..

I copy, I wasn't sure about that would a -4 Y fitting be better or just center the t between them and run feed line to that?
