    eBay turbo and mani is the reason you are looking for such a sharply bent downpipe. If that's all you have, I'd say return it and start over, man. I'm not trying to be a dick here, I'm just saying that eBay shit doesn't hold up unfortunately.

    I'm just letting you know the reason why you are going to be searching for a specific downpipe. I had an eBay setup that was going to be going on my car, and decided against it after I bolted it up and found that there was little room for my downpipe, let alone a dumptube for the wastegate. Good luck, you're going to have some fitment issues, man.

    Oh, and it's not negative feedback, its criticism. I've done this already.

    Well at least buy a decent wastegate so the boost doesn't spike on ya.

    Best gates out there are any TiAL or Synapse. Both can be had for 200-300$ new or cheaper used. Good luck.

    There is no reason for a boost controller.

    ^Werd.

    Pick up a Synapse. A simple change of the Vacuum ports will yield more/less boost.

    You dont need a boost controller, just get a spring.. they make 7lb springs and just tune it to run off the wastegate.

    Turbosmart is also a great brand. around the same price range. Go with the 38mm ultragate. I never get boost spike with it.
