Mark dropped off manifold and downpipe for ceramic coating today! ACF kit finally came in (PT 6062). Quality and finish is top notch. Waiting on a few more ancillaries, car should be here shortly. Stay tuned for pics of ceramic coating in a few days!

Nice man! If this is still the same as the VM manifold it was easier to install than the twins were to remove. You are going to love it

Sorry for the delay in updates guys, have been busy. Car got here Thursday. We got the stockers out and the manifold mounted in about 3 hours.

Heres a quick teaser shot. Will update with an entire build list once were all done.

That wastegate placement must be nice for the AN lines. Not so easy with bottom mount kits if you want to run the same thing just due to angles of fittings available. I got mine to work but took some research and wasted money trying things. 3 hours is very impressive!

I'm really interested in a bottom mount kit the more and more I think about it, just seems like the best way to do it.

Its not as bling, but its a really clean looking install. Also with as hot as my engine bay gets, can't imagine how hot a top mount is. I'd like to see how things hold up after 4-5 years on those setups.

At least with installing the new manifold for the ST kit your able to ceramic coat it, possibly wrap it as well, throw a blanket on the exhaust housing, and wrap the DP. So just maybe the hot parts would be cooler since the TT setups out there really don't do any of this. I'm interested in seeing what the weak points become in these kits, I personally don't think there is one. One day I'll do a build like this!
