    You're an adventurer...that's for sure.

    Come to think of it....I don't know of a single top mount S54 in an E46. Do you know of any?

    I can't even imagine the way the downpipe will be set up after everything is fitted on top.

    That is one huge ass turbo though.

    It will meld the hood/paint if you not put a heat blanket on the turbo and you have to heat wrap your downpipe.
    I have tested it without one for 10miles and i really burned my hand when i touched the hood.

    I did see another custom build (it was on a different forum and I'm not sure if its ok to post a link?) I did save his pictures though so if that's allowed I can upload those.

    What's up guys? Nice to finally find some time to get on this forum. I was slammed this summer which pushed my project back quite a bit but I'm planning to bust my ass to get this thing boosted. Here is a current picture of the manifold. I have to add the wastegate flange but it is ready. I have already fitted the manifold and it is perfect besides it being too close to one of the AC lines which will be addressed when installing. I'm super excited to get this going just don't know about the tuning quite yet. Click here to enlarge

    Great looking manifold, it's sick, and welcome.

    I have to put you in a limited guest vendor group as per the rules but I'll leave the picture up as a courtesy. Plus it looks so damn good.
