Default Rear mount build.

Doing this for a local guy, he doesn't post on here so I figured I would since I'm building it.

Clean nice install. Not a fan of rear mounts but a fan of clean install. Nice job.

I'm sure you will meet your goals.

Just a tip, try to stay away from those sharp angles as it disrupts the flow. If possible I would weld the wastegate directly to that pipe instead of that long skinny pipe that pulls it so far away.

EDIT: Here is my manifold and wastegate flange for reference

The picture looks deceiving, if you look into the tailpipe you can look straight through to the WG. That short section is actually curved. I need a better camera lol

Kinda looks like your using my build as a template. Very close even the routing up into the engine bay. Looks good!

I don't know what the owner paid for the materials and components, but I have 89 hours into the build and installation. That should give you a rough idea.

Nice work. You must have knocked this one out fairly quick. Post up the final results.

5 weekends of my time, not too bad. Tuner came over today to flash a base tune on the car and the damn starter broke when we tried to start it

What size piping here 3" hot and 3" cold for the most part? What sort of t76, like an on3 7665 in a .96AR housing? Curious to the spool and keep up the good work. I'm planning on building the same damn thing for a friend this winter, but plan to try smaller piping in a few spots to speed response up a bit. We might use a slightly smaller compressor and see what it will do.
