Got more parts in but I'm ordering the manifold today, I have been thinking which is the best option for the wastegate location. I'm going to be going with the manifold in the first 2 pics.

DB fab (Danny Boy fabrication) T3 Sidewinder manifold









As you can see my engine bay has such a good amount of room but do you think the reservoir will get in tne way of the wastegate? I have the option of getting the wastegate flange on the top like this below like this setup I doubt hood clearance would be a problem but not 100% sure.

It's getting there just in a blind with the manifold I need to know what to do, I'm kinda of worried of the wastegate location. I was thinking to have it mounted on top of the manifold over the turbo, I'm not sure if I have enough room with the reservoir in the way if I want to run this manifold as is like in the pic with the red civic running the same manifold ?

Danny told me who's doing mani for me that if I was worried with back space there would be a option to have the wastegate flange on the top over the turbo what do you think? it would suck to get this and have it rub on the reservoir so I'm leaning towards the top location. I could be wrong I could have enough room though at the same time I'm pulling my hair on this.

Well I want to say thank you to Mike @ deatschwerks.com for sponsoring my project here are the injectors. Going to visit to the car and dropping off more parts in a few days to get things rolling again, we had 20 inchs of snow last week out of no where.

Well we made some progress yesterday installing the motor and manifold and other parts trying to see how everything fits before we do some fab work and more clean up of the engine bay before paint. We found out it's a little more work then it could be for instance the wastegate fitment is going to be tight but will work and will be welded on top of the manifold facing the turbo, the manifold fits well but the downpipe coming off of the turbo will touch the brake booster lines unless something is modified which will be done.

Unlike Civic's & Integra’s there is a lot of engine bay room but not so much in the back since the placement of K and J series motors are unusually more further back the those cars which is why these issues happen. 7th gen 4cyl radiator fits well in the car but it could be a little shorter but fits very snug under the hood. I'll post more updates in when I can.

Sorry for the hold up guys I had something’s from work and other personal things to deal with. I took a much needed break away from the automotive scene and this project, I’m now very anxious to finish this project and will be doing so very soon. I’m getting the bay painted the 2nd week of February and mounting the motor right after I’ll post some updates then.

If anyone also knows which shifter and linkage I should use? please let me know, I’m thinking either 03+ Accord 4cyl 5spd shifter and linkage or maybe a 5spd base RSX.
