    hi guys some pics here of my AGU head mani and turbo plus down pipe all together after some modding u dont need to use the copper spacers either and all looks ok with no real problem in fitting with the head off.

    here is the head with the mani and gasket on touching the suport bracket for the charge pipe so had to wip that off and the mani touching the head before s3dave took a grinder too it.

    you will want to install the water/oil lines before installing.. kok of a job afterwards otherwise

    much more clearance on the problem dp stud in your pix than the one i have here. which is never going to clear.

    good work
    well done chaps

    keep it up

    this kit is the same bill with the copper spacers i think not shore there gaskets think they are for clearance pal on downpipe and so on.

    nice bit of kit tho and oem gaskets for me too.

    what downpipe wrap would u use bill and will it benefit from been wraped
