So I have been installing this kit over the last couple 2 or 3 months off and on. Upgrading a few things and changing/adding others. But here is my lastest brainstorming episode. The mild steel headers are made from some pretty heavy material so I dont know if it really needs extra bracing or not but I made up something anyway, may be overkill but oh well. I havent ran this setup yet so.. I still need to finish welding out the bracket as its just tacked together for mock up.

Looks good, definately needs all the bracing it can get with all the weight on that header it can fatigue.

where do you get the rods for the hime joints
I made them from .625 diameter air cylinder rod stock. The heim joints are 3/8 size.

Finished the bracket out and got the turbine housing on. Turned out good, I like it. After everything else is installed and the header has its static weight load on it, Im not sure if I should just adjust the rods to where it sits at static weight or if I should put a little bit of preload on it to lessen the static load.
