05. Next, the 3/16-inch turbo mounting plate was installed. The plate mounts to the front engine mounts. The rigid mount prevents any stress being applied to the header assembly. The fully ceramic-coated, stainless exhaust header mounts to the top of the mounting plate. The 2-into-1 design routes all the exhaust’s heat energy from the exhaust ports into the turbine wheel of the turbo. The header has a slip joint for thermal expansion to prevent cracking and for ease of installation.
