Thanks The install took me a while... probably about 20 hours in total, but I had never done it before so I had a pretty major learning curve. That being said I would do it again in a heart beat! I had a lot of fun and learned a lot as well. I am doing all the install on this car, and I am FAR from a mechanically inclined person but I am learning and having tons of fun with it A couple weeks ago I installed my KW sleeve kit <-- that was a tough job as well. Next on the list (this weekend) is full exhaust

Nice work on the self install. You had to do a bit more than most as you had to assemble the manifold components after paint which we normally do.

That manifold looks nuts. This might be my first time seeing this on an ESS manifold, but I have a good feeling you'll be setting some trends

Thanks Yeah, I thought about trying to do a DIY but I didn't have the patience at the time, the step by step instructions from ESS is 64 pages complete with pictures for EVERY step. Their instructions are probably much better than any DIY I could do

Do it bro, I think it'd look saaaaaaICK on your car Originally I was going to do the Space Grey on top and black between the ribs but I photoChopped it and it didn't look right. I also considered Space grey on top and charcoal grey between the ribs, that looked OK but I like the way it turned out
