theyre specially designed for VL turbos so the cooler piping doesnt have to go around the world

looks good mate and I like your plans for a good streeter, the only suggestion I have is upgrade the turbo before you put it on because you will eventually do it anyway, throw a t04e or something on there

Looks good
