Jens Gustavsson developed it. Should be solid.

Work on getting some head work first before you worry about manifolds, imo

Ok....I'm all setup for topmount....my top mount was stolen..don't feel like rerouting everything and doing a new dp to put a 90+ back on, so I wanted to replace the ssautocrap with something better

I think we need a minute moment of silence for the lost boost.

Just get a new top mount header. I just made the downpipe for my hx35 today and although it wasn't bad, I don't want to do it again.

Ill need to make a new dp since it's 4" but my feed drain ic piping all that **** are arranged for topmount, I like the look of the extreme t3 header as they call it, I assume it would hold to the weight of a holset

I'd assume they thought about holding weight when designing it. I don't know if I would worry

Sounds like an inside job, someone knew the parts were in the trunk...

The night time recycling crew grabs stuff that is out and visible, they don't pop a trunk just to see what is in it...

The 8v extreme header has a flange for 40 mm waste gate. So on top of building a new down pipe, you would have to buy the appropriate waste gate for header.

I got this one. Beefy as sheet. Real thick. I think I paid $525 for it. I got it from Lord Athlon. It's new still, never been on a car and run. No waste gate hole to plug. You don't have to run a external waste gate, you can just plug the hole with a block off plate or v-band plate if you buy one that has external gate hole.

Doesn't the "extreme t3" require the alternator to be moved?

On a 240 yeah. In a 740 it's the PS pump that needs to be relocated. Knowing Ryan, it likely has no PS to speak of.
