Does the "extreme" flow better than the style I have?



Doesn't seem worth the struggle for the fitment issues if it doesn't

If it was too easy I’d probably be suspicious. I also tend to do things the hardest way possible
Yeah I can't run it then, the whole point of me putting my alternator on the driver side was to escape the heat.

I’m swapping it on in the morning. I’ll take measurements and pics so you can see exactly where it sits

Do you have the non extreme KL manifold? I think the differences are it can hold twice the weight and has an external wastegate.

I have an older obx mild steel one with a wg pipe added to it...guess I'm more curious if it changes spool up and if it's worth the hassle of relocating things vs the style i have

Well it’s hard to gauge since I changed to a totally different turbo setup. I’m happy with the performance so far, and slight change in tone a little more rumble. But install and switching everything around was a pain. But that’s on me for having to keep my alternator on driver side. I ended up without accessories on the passenger side totally.
