Those bends are a great alternative to a "log style" of manifold, and will help greatly with keep exhaust velocity high.

Not defending this set-up, as i know dick about it, but everything looks "ok" as far as i can tell.
LOL, oh look somebody on e90post has a brain I guess the crowd over here is a bit inexperienced and don't realize how simple a turbo HARDWARE kit is for any car, it's the software part that causes the problems.

If you go on other forums there are people sitting in their garage with a 2-4 of beer fabbing manifolds for cars running a lot faster than the n54.

It might not give the best results possible, but that doesn't negate the fact that it will still be an upgrade and fairly large one.

I don't think it's something that's going into production, the owner of a shop did it on his own personal vehicle for his own fun.

What difference does that make? Tons of vendors have posted bs around here, all it takes to be a vendor is a quick online payment, how does that change anything? I made a post to share a pic and the pics infront of you.

Might be inefficient, but functionality and efficiency are two diff things.

Turbos are from the same mitsu fam as we're all fairly accustomed to.
