What's you plan for mounting the twins and routing piping? Manifolds or headers?

Using the top two 10M studs on the timing covers, (one goes into the head the other goes into the block) to hold my steel brackets that Ill fab up to hold the 58's on each side. Manifold will be custom made 1-5/8" x4 into a 3" collector to the t4 flange. I had to relocate the ABS and all brake likes on the drivers side.

You'll be better off using motor mounts or build something to hold it. I would look into using something that will help keep heat in the exhaust. Turbos are more effiecent as heat rises.

I moved my condenser up about 2-3" from where it is factory to install some pusher fans in between the radiator and condensor. That way I can run my 3-1/2" cold side from the innercooler to the throttle body. Vertically it should give me a good 18" run to put my MAP sensor of SCT BA2800 [MENTION=99933]Franchi Motorsports[/MENTION]

They are going to be mounts, Ill try to get you a picture of what I am doing. All the 1-5/8" piping from the headers to the collector/t4 flange will be ceramic coated to help with that. Shouldnt be any issues there.

Fans will be mounted on the other side of the radiator.

I may know of someone locally who just went TT with a 05 GT500. But I'm unsure if he will seperate the lower and the M122. Also give a shout to MMR. They may of know of quite a few to be had..

Edit: [MENTION=76903]fordmotorsport[/MENTION]s I'm going to be sending a pm in a minute..

If your going to stay N/A you can get slightly more power out of the 4v. In my opinion its also a more responsive engine. I just wish I would have swapped the E4OD/4R100 for a built 4R75.
