Re: Another bloody turbo XF post.
If your going to buy a 2nd hand turbo, get a T3 from an RB25. The turbo off the rb30 is a press bearing turbo, and not the most relaible thing in the world, the reason holden had to do a recall on the turbo VL's. Go fot the rb25 turbo, and you be much furthur in front and should only cost about $400 for one. As for the gas, i would not recommend a suck thru system, as all the gas setups i have seen that do this and up with a vacuum behind the carby, and they starve for gas, causes detonation and all the fun things that go with it.
As for the manifold, you should be able to get on knocked up for about $800 at any good engineering shop.
Sounds like a good plan, hope all goes well.
