Another Approach to the Mexican Throttle body setup

Here is mine in its 1st edition form...

Now it is getting some major upgrading for the new season...Air to water IC, new T3/T4 Turbo, new cam, new exhaust, new ignition
These are just of the new intake. The end castings on the heads right now are not what will be used. I'll be sticking with the Mexican ones for the time being.

The new header arrived today, I'll get more pics up when I get the remainder of the plumbing figured out.

The header didn't require any butchering, but the hybrid turbo required some pretty deep trimming of the apron. At this point there is no visible trimming to the apron unless you look at the ugly side. The header puts the turbo in the same spot as the CB hideawy, so A-1 says. It just tucks up much higher, and costs twice as much lol. It should make for routing the exhast dump pretty slick, as there is literally nothing behind the turbo.

You can see what I mean about the apron in this photo, you can't tell, but there is not much material left near the turbo.
