    I've read a lot and a lot of people say its too hard or not feasible, but if I believe if you can build a bottom mount single, then the space issues should minimize, wondering what you guys think

    The manifold,,and turbo will fit. The downpipe will need tweeking and the abs module may be a restriction on your choice of air cleaners.

    I believe all manifolds will fit but everything around will have to be relocated or readjusted.
    Im running the infamous JP Works kit on my e60 535I top mount 6466 and pretty much had to modify the whole kit. From replacing the fake Mac solenoid to milling the t4 flange on the manifold even.
    You can make it work, just a lot of work.

    what did you relocate? did you relocate the A/C Line and coolant reservoir? I believe that is all that is needed?

    Very interested to see pics if you have some you don't mind sharing. How much power are you making?
