    Wildfire thanks for the update, and I wish I would have jumped on the MS but have NOW my G8 and my 240sx on standalone tuning computers. The rocketchip will do just fine for now.....

    I am using DIYPNP using the N52 board/Plug. Mostly cause I had it left over from my old Miata(note, I had to order a new board/plug section).

    So my setup right now is the DIYPNP, which using a Mircosquirt board/processor, and 2 bip373 to drive my coil packs. Everything CAS/Coil is on their own wiring using the DB15(can't remember what number it is) and then the rest of the car is via the factory harness.

    Not to much of an update, the car has been in storage between moving housing and kids. Unfortunately while inspecting the car after moving it to the new garage I noticed the HKS exhaust was rusted in to many places so it's out. Ordered up a handful of parts for the new exhaust.

    The plan is to run it from the turbo back, with a devorced downpipe. 2.5 out of the turbo with a 1.75 for the wastegate. Merge those into a 3" and run 3" all the way to the back.

    Now to photos.

    3" cat


    1.75 and 2.5 piping


    Muffler





    3" bends




    Vbands and steal plate for the turbine flange



    Test sizing (this is where it goes between the body and the rear subframe) plenty of room getting the vband in there, so I should have plenty of room




    Also have 7' of 3" piping not photoed. Hopefully this should be enough to build the the system. Or at least I should be able to get 90% of it from these parts :D. Now to try and find time to build the exhaust. Between work, and the 4 kids I don't get a whole lot of free time.

    Hopefully 3" won't be to bad. I run 3" on my old turbo Miata and it wasn't too bad. Quiet at low speed, but had a nice loud tone when fully on it.

    First time working with V-bands but seems like it should really make working on the car in the future easy. I am sick of breaking exhaust bolts on the flange.
