No, clearance hasn't been an issue.

No, not really. Maybe to Foxwoods or Mohegan once in a great while but that's about it.

I am very impressed with this build, great work and I hope it's a blast to drive. I liked the videos you uploaded.

I bought two of those turbos and cant wait to hear them spool up

Thanks. It's a handful to drive and puts a smile on your face every time the throttle is pressed. I can't imagine 2 of these turbos. Good luck with your build.

Overall what were your thoughts on the response of the system? Would you have wanted more turbo or slightly less if peak power was not a factor?

I thought it was perfect. Plenty of low end power and the top end charge was crazy.
