    Yeah with where the m60 sits the 3.5 was really tight.

    We rerouted all the wires and did everything we could.

    Remember even the starter is over there on the m6x.

    But is there going to be that much of a difference? 4" all the way sounds pretty good for an exhaust system. Also for those of you reading this thread, thanks and maybe someone who knows how a poll on what color to powder coat the piping, leave it or change to say shiny silver or perhaps black? Much appreciated.

    Not that my opinion matters, but I think it looks just fine as is.

    If you want to change color a bright silver would be best imo. The black can look funny if it does not match the couplers so its best to do something contrasting.

    White would be interesting with the red IC and other accents, or motorsport bronze. 90s DTM style.

    I always like the stealth, stockish, look of semi gloss black but it will absorb radiant heat from around it more so than if it was polished metal. Its nice to see someone turbo one of these. Many have tried and failed over the years.

    Believe me, when I get it, it will be tops on my list of things to do. I am getting the bright silver itch.

    I would leave the piping as is, the gray looks great. Bright silver would look cheesy IMO.

    Cranked right up... after 10 hours!

    The bad news: the rear crank seal (main seal) is leaking a quart every 10 seconds. Maybe it wasn't even installed by the previous shop, I have never seen one leak so much.

    We are going to bed!

    Clean looking fab work. Sucks about the rear main seal. A bit of a gut punch after all that work. Is there an IAT sensor in the manifold after the intercooler to see how effective that mani is? In for some graphs and charts to see what this will do.

    What obvious reasons since you also laughed. I am not a 6 banger guy and I like V8, that is my prerogative.
