    Yeah- I noticed that when I first got my car. Seem like a lot of the car manufacturers are looking for ways to simplify assembly of an engine.

    Pretty standard now a days. 2 reasons; 1) it spools the turbo faster, since it can be that much closer to the exhaust and heat and 2) since the turbo is basically a heat soak, keeping things tight, with the CAT right after the turbo, helps bring the CAT up to temperature sooner for proper emissions control. We'll see how much power we can get out of keeping it this way before we move to larger turbos, manifolds, etc...

    From what I saw initially the exhaust manifold can use some massaging and the inlet on the turbo would love to be opened up a bit to balance..
