me too. unfortunately it just isn't possible with the current setup as the oil filter leg cannot be turned more than it is as otherwise hoses will hit the exhaust. Depending on how I manage the make the downpipe, there might be more space. Anyhow, oil lines are few cm higher than the sump so at least they aren't the lowest point...

Exhaust manifold is now finished. Not the most beautiful but as a first try I just hope it works somehow! :D

Downpipe is tacked together. It'll need some major hacking but that will need to wait till I have time to lift the car up and see how it all fits. I think that I'll go with 2.5" pipe all the way to the mufflers.

Sorry, haven't remembered to update this thread for while, but current situation is that only exhaust is still under work. Otherwise everything else is bolted in.

I've modified the ve and ignition maps in tunerstudio and used standard maps as base and retarded the ignition after 100kpa. Hopefully I get it started later this week or next and get it idling.
