    depends on what turbo you have. at this point(assuming you dont have the boost setup yet), i guess ANY d/p will work.......lol

    it depends on your manifold more than anything. consult the mfg'er of your mani, and go from there.

    If you can weld, or know someone who can making your own is the best bet. That way your wastgate routing and o2 sensor placement is all up to you. There are a lot of places on the web where you can buy random mandrel bends. With your displacement I wouldn’t go under 3" pipe, and stay away from the crush bent stuff.
