    That manifold looks cool. Looks like it mounts lower than I expected though, is that the reason for the fuse box mods? Is the Throttle body still in the original location or has this also moved? I dont understand the thermostat propblems either

    the tb has droped and turned toward the wing, i could have moved the fuse box over a bit but went for max room instead, you have 2 temp sensors you need to screw into the manifold but the clash with the thermostat housing
    so i have pluged them and will either drill and tap the side or fit an adapter in the hose

    Nice shiney parts Will be watching this thread too

    One query about the above picture. Not sure weather in practice it will really matter though...

    In the AVC-R manual it says the boost sensor should be monted with the diaphragm or what ever is in the plastic bit horizontal. So the part you fix the boost hose on points vertically downwards.

    Edit: Just had another look at the picture, and it doesn't look like they are fixed in
    so this might be irrelivant.

    moving the sensors to the inner wing as vibration from the engine might cause damage
