Well I could but I hate to cut up that manifold and de-value it. I don't know if its something I can weld.
I think I'll start with getting the two flanges and then from there see how it looks with the 90 DEG. TB rotation. I'll most likely have to relocate the IAT sensor as well if I want the larger FMIC up there.
What I need is around this size, but rated for more than 22 PSI . And ideally 2.5" depth

Getting some stuff solved regarding the intercooler . Made a small piece to rotate the TB and gain some clearance . Just need to add a small flange for the IAT sensor and I’ll be done with that portion. Then to weld the inlet /outlet on the intercooler itself . Outlet is going to be tricky due to a tight 90/space constraint

Nice work! Did you machine the bits or get them made somewhere in town? Your aluminum welding is looking good :)

Those welds do look nice! Glad to see that's sorted out. I don't think the intercooler should be too bad, obviously if you exit out the bottom side of the intercooler. Granted being there in person to look at it could tell a very different story to the picture.

Kirk the bits, I got the two that I used from Issam/INA as he already had a patern drawn up; the third square looking one was from 034 but it has extra holes in it as it goes with a VR6 throttle body adapter
The intercooler, I'll have to do some thinking about it . I'm going to have to make a whole new end tank so anything is possible I guess . I'll get some better pics soon to show the issue. Basically I used the front mount to keep the piping as clean and short runs as possible and I don't want to add a 180 degree loop on there .

Starting to look at the core support . I think I can get the factory piece back in there with a few small bolts and have a nice removable set up that will resemble factory .

Test run of how things would fit with this setup. It’s ok. Biggest concern will be getting the intake pipe on the drivers side to the TB .

Still struggling with the intercooler . Shortened my TB spacer down by about an inch . Still may need to shorten it even more . I used some 3” aluminum bends to make the tightest possible radius I could , it will barely be able to get into the intercooler .
