Like the look of the top mount manifold, but don't like the look of that 'low' hot side cooler piping!

So close to the ground mate. Why not go around the drivers side?

Some pics of my setup in this thread...

Yeah, we were trying to  have the hot pipe pass under and behind the bumper  so we dont have to cut any metal, but we are actually do the same thing you did but a little more differently due to the downpipe, I will place one of the slim fans in front to have more space and turn the Turbo a little bit more so the oil lane wont  be on the way. I will try to post more pictures tomorrow. I pull out my ECU already  so the NISTUNE can be installed.

The thing is that I did not find any thread with a top mount turbo set up. If its one, well I spend 2hrs looking at the wrong threads. 

Thanks for the pictures Budgie.

that is similar to how mine is mounted, secure a metal piece to the latch brace then bracket
