Adapter plate for manifold

Hi, ive run into a small problem.

I just recieved my turbo manifold which is a short runner log-type, its for a OHC MPi 3.9 EA Falcon.

Problem is my turbo (a TO4 not sure if E or B) is a split-pulse exhaust housing and the manifold flange is for just a normal housing with 1 port instead of the 2 that i need.

Is it possible to just use an adapter plate to extend the bolts to make the turbo fit or will i need to weld a new flange on?

Is it important to have the break in between 3 and 4 exhaust ports for the split-pulse turbo or can i just redirect the exhasut flow with a adapter plate?


Thanks

Re: Adapter plate for manifold

It doesn't realy matter about the split pulse does your turbo bolt up? There are two or three bolt patterns in some cases you can just redrill frange or just cut it off and mig weld another on..
Yes usually three or 1/2 cylinders go into one side.. Etc etc...You can champher the turbo housing if you like..Or weld a divider on flange plate before welding on primeries...Either way it'll work...

Yea the bolt pattern was different, i just thought the exhaust flow might get interrupted from hitting the flat bit between the two ports on the turbine entry (this is assuming there is no divider on the flange plate.

Re: Adapter plate for manifold

Hey, any good turbo shop will have the exhaust housing for you to swap.
Swap the housings instead.
Don't weld anything or drill anything on the manifold. It will weaken it. It should be made out of thick cast iron or Ni-Resist alloy.
The small flange is USA pattern and the large is European.
Your TO4 will be the European flange same as my setup off an XD Falcon.
Is yours an AIT casting ???
