You can see the TB mounted to the elbow in his pics.

Max is doing it right... REW is the way to go for anything north of 300rwhp.
This is gonna be a fun car!

Its gonna control the engine and boost and oem ecu will do the rest of the car to keep oem functions. I have the full function trigger kit with a rx8 teeth patern so the oem ecu will work like it should. It will be tuned by derwin as well.

Any pics on how you're mounting the Renesis CAS to the REW cover?

I would cut the top radiator pipe back some and make the silicone hose(s) longer to ensure flexibility and not stress the radiator fitting. Being that it's the engine coolant outlet rigidty is not a primary concern.

Nice! So you're running a surge tank or is it stock style just upgraded? Or did you do a return style system?

I shortened the ss water pipe and put a longer silicone

Now the only non flexible part is the turbo inlet, cannot find a reducer hump from 4 to 3.5

Most are rubber rather than silicone

assuming it's not on the boost side, which would require a charge air hose instead:

HPS 4-ply Aramid 3.5" 4" inch Charge Air Cooler CAC Silicone Hose turbo coolant 76mm 89mm diesel
