Thanks! Yup, all 304 stainless. I may try to vband the downpipe about half way and run aluminum out the fender to save weight.

5" pie cuts are from Stainless Bros (Ticon) and are top level quality. Everything else I am doing on a porta band with a Swag Offroad table and a 12" disc sander.

Are 3 inch not a bit overkill? Or is this to help with heat?

They are oversize.. I can spray out any lag, and really just want max flow during the long pulls we make. I am sure it will help with heat and who knows maybe a 118mm turbo down the road

Do you remember what setup you used to convert to cable pull throttle body?

Its being controlled by the ProEFI, so fairly straight forward electrically. TPS is whatever number the Holley TB recommended. The IAC is in place, but probably not needed.

Lokar throttle pedal with a custom arm extension, toe clip, and Lokar cable.

Let me know if you need something specific.

Mainly the pedal and throttle cable setup. I wonder if you can leave the TB plugged in and run a cable TB with the OEM setup.

I would think you would run into issues trying to match TPS1 and TPS2 along with the pedal position?

Yeah, I forgot about the pedal, lol. I'm considering swapping to the Holley Terminator X. It's been done before but no one has really said what pedal and cable they used.

I was able to finish weld, prime, and paint the chromoly front structure.. Starting some final assembly and working on the downpipe.

will that inlet style not be a restriction versus one pipe? I love the design.

Thanks, Jason

I figure the two sides have to merge somewhere... This is far easier to weld than a pipe merge and seems stronger, although it would be nice the see flow numbers.

Compared to where the turbine housing chokes down and hits a compressor wheel. Two 3" pipes going into a 1" hole with a turbine wheel, the inlet is the least of worries about a restriction.

Some plumbing and wiring running thru the fender. I am going to make the bumper easy to remove for access. I am really trying to keep it clean under the hood yet still functional.

Also relocated a fire nozzle to better cover the turbo. Second hardline is CO2 for the wastegates.

(the zig zag water plumbing to the intercooler will be changed !)
