Sorry it'* been a while since I posted. I was waiting for my hot side pipes to get welded but my friend that does all my "good" welding was sick. But he'* back in form again and off we go.
I mounted the shorty headers with the exit towards the front of the engine. This keeps the header heat away from the starter on the drivers side and the oil fittings to the block and lines on the passenger side. The piping then 180'* back and up, just behind the center ports, to a V-clamp, and then forward and up to the turbos. Where the pipe leaves the header collector and 180'* back and up, I installed the wastegate feed in flow off of the bottom of the 180 and back. You can see that in the first pic. So the wastegates will set pretty much right where a conventional header collector would set.
Just realized I mocked up the piping wrong. The second pipe that goes to the turbo should be setting on top of the v clamp above the wastegate, not where it is setting in the pic.
This is a shot high over the engine bay. You can see the turbo placement and the 3 inch to 4 inch cones off of the exits of the turbos. The cones still have to be cut down to 4 inch diameters yet to match up with the polished stainless 4 inch exhaust piping.
So now I start on the exhaust pipes. I'm thinking of running it down under the frame and all the way to an exit in front of the rear tires. Or just cut the fender bottoms and mount them solid/permanent with the exhaust coming out of the fender and right out to atmosphere. The turbos will act as mufflers. Out of the fenders would be much simpler.
My band saw took a dump and I was with out anything to cut metal (correctly/easily) but I found a deal on a Rockwell band saw and a full standing drill press. So I am now officially back in business.
