I had to do this with my B20 bell housing. All you need to do is add washers/a spacer and possibly a longer bolt. But yeah, you'll have to pull the trans.

Thanks! It's easy to forget that when the thing just sits for so long. That's why I want to do the T5 and 16v in two separate stages, rather than just ripping the thing apart for another 6 months.

In a perfect world, I assume a matched radius would be best. I used a 45, and it's marginal. 60 would give it more room to settle in, I assume.

If you have a line going to the stock pre-turbo location, you don't want an open filter or vent to atmosphere. That would be a vacuum leak, as the pre-turbo inlet could pull unmetered air.
