SaWeeeet looking build so far Mike. Love where you put the turbos and how you've set up the rest of the intake. I'm dialed in on this one.

I'm not sure how I missed this build, but you're doing a heck of a job on it.  I loved your turbo fab tutorial and the overall look is really gonna knock 'em dead.  I'll be sure to keep track of this build, now that I know what it is...

Yes it is a tight fit and it took me a while to figure out where to put them. That is why i didn't work on it for a couple of months.
