  1. ahhh right!! i get you now, sweet im happy i understand it a bit more, god no, i was looking at them but the bloke whos doin my car said he needed to know the pressure it could take so i coughed up 500 large ones for the aussie manifold and it looks sweet as!! just gotta get a few more power mods and a couple handling ones and shes about there! cheers for your help tho guys, massively appreciated,
  2. yea the bloke thats doin it has routed it really well, doesnt go anywhere near the manifold an it looks the mutts nuts, jus waiting for a few hoses to be made an delivered an shes back on the road, so if the turbos cooled through the main radiator what does the top mount do?? i took the top mount off when i swapped manifolds to a tubular, and there were two small pipes that fed the red oil/water??? to the turbo! i dunno if im worryin over nothing but the last thing i want is my turbo packin up because thats the last thing i want to be coughing up for!
