Sounds like a plan. Guys asking $250 for the MAF. Will try to talk him down. What's a fair offer?

NM: asking $175

@ibd2328 would there be a benefit to routing the twin turbos under the truck after the manifolds instead of the manifolds facing forward. seen this on sports cars. Seems like a lot of piping? But would be less clutter in the engine bay right? Thoughts?

The only thing I can think of is just less clutter, like you said. I think the further away the hot side is from the collector and manifold the more lag (minimal though). It's just hard to say because of some many different turbo housings. I am using the T3 flange with a .82 ar, so it should see some quick pressure from exhaust (hopefully).

I would say most of those guys running that way are spinning 6k plus with high stalls and or manuals. I'm going to be running a near stock stall so I need that boost quick. Although, it might not hurt at all. Once I get it running, I might play around and build some different headers.

I'll post a pic of the manifolds Im using with the turbos.

If you didn't want stainless I could prolly do it. Stainless just takes forever and 100% argon isn't cheap.
