Good luck trying to find a vet manifold though :/

No his manifold places the turbo in the stock VET location. Its a tubular version of the VET manifold.

I can get you a FACTORY VET manifold for about $485 but you have to pre-pay for it and wait until it comes in. could be 2 months, could be 9 months.

yeah if I pay that much might as well save more and get yours or hopefully pay less than that for the other one your thinking about making

The T2 version I make is better than any others out there because you can run a Inconnell BB37 or a GT3071R with the full 4" inlet housing bottom mount and clock the turbo outlet to face down and they all clear the block and radiator just fine. Tell me another T2 bottom mount you can do that with.

I have a very very tight radius bend die that I may be able to use to make some shorty turbo manifolds but its so far down on my list of things to do that i'm not really even worrying about it right now.

These headers for hte B series are being mass produced everywhere. I think Hytech started this design and then everyone followed suit and copy'd him. Now they are being sent to china and copy'd over there. I actually make a B series 4-1 header that kills all of these tri y's but its $1350 and the replica's are in the $400 range. And as always, people love supporting china's economy more than our own.

That header is a 304SS one so visually ofcourse it will be different because of the material, but yea, you get the idea on what the collectors will look like.
I would love to see a vet budget turbo manifold

This is a pic of a VET manifold with a BTBB37, so this is how Chucky Cheese's manifold will fit with the turbo.

Yeah that's where I want my location haha Sorry to bring this hole thread off topic to turbo manifolds lol

ok so here's how i bring this back on topic ( not that I really care)...

Here are pics of the prototype installed on a BONE STOCK 99' P11.
The header is very very close to the oil pan so I will be moving the runners over about 1/4-1/2" towards the crossmember.

I will be modifying runner #1 to better clear the A/C line.
I will be making runner #2 longer to match the other 3
Ground clearance wise on a P11 (P10 the same) this does fit above the cross member.
For B13/14/15 guys, this header will fit above the stock crossmember so you will not have any issues at all.
You DO NOT have to remove the radiator fans (on a p11 atleast) to install this header
You have to either unbolt the A/C compressor and or unbolt the front part of the crossmember to install the header.

I will not make a final assembly jig until after I dyno because of a few possible changes that I may do.

Awesome clearance!
